Report: Charter talks with Comcast about joint Time Warner Cable bid

  • Reuters reports Charter (CHTR) has "reached out" to Comcast (CMCSA) about a joint bid for Time Warner Cable (TWC), after Time Warner spurned Charter's $132.50/share offer. Charter and Comcast are said to be "in preliminary discussions about how to structure a potential alliance."
  • One source says a bid could involve Charter buying Time Warner in full, and then selling off some subscribers to Comcast.
  • Regulators are bound to closely scrutinize any major cable asset purchases made by Comcast, given its enormous size.

    that is a tough call to say. i mean in all honesty siri and xm would be dead if malone hadnt come in and saved them during the crisis. It is a cheap premium for sure but holders have known that malone would likely do this for a long time
