Abstract

On March 20, 2019, the Walt Disney Company purchased 21st Century Fox. The acquisition includes 21st Century Fox’s film production divisions such as Twentieth Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures, Fox 2000 Pictures, Fox Family, and Fox Animation as well as Fox’s interests in streaming services like Hulu. The acquisition is part of Disney’s strategic initiatives to provide more appealing high-quality content and entertainment options to meet growing consumer demand; increase its international footprint; and expand its direct-to-consumer offerings, which include ESPN+ for sports fans and the highly anticipated Disney+ streaming video-on-demand service launching in late 2019. In this case, students will analyze Disney’s value using a variety of methods as well as determine the risks and opportunities of the acquisition.
