Disney’s $71.3B purchase of most of 21st Century Fox has been approved by shareholders of both companies. Shareholder votes for both Disney and Fox were counted in meetings held in New York this morning. The shareholder approval follows the deal being approved by the Department of Justice last month.
There will still be a few more regulatory odds and ends to finish up, but for the most part, this historic deal is sealed. Disney and Fox previously notified shareholders that all transactions related to this deal are expected to be completed within six to twelve months of June 20, 2018, potentially putting Disney in control of all those Fox assets this year.
