Comcast Could Still Beat Disney To Fox

A new report over at CNBC suggests that communications giant Comcast could top Disney’s $52.4 billion offer for 20th Century Fox.

The report says that negotiations are technically still open and no decision has been made by Comcast on a topping bid yet, but Disney is reportedly already preparing itself for a Comcast topping bid and considering responses in case.

Comcast executives suggested to Murdoch last year they would be willing to pay significantly more for Fox’s assets than what Disney was offering and such an offer could persuade enough FOX shareholders to vote against Murdoch who chose Disney over Comcast due to regulatory concerns.
