Disney buys LucasFilm for $4B

First Marvel, now Star Wars.  Disney basically owns my entire childhood.

 

I'm kind of surprised it went for only $4B, but I believe Lucas was the only shareholder and for him finding the right buyer may have been more important than maximizing the sale price. Kind of like the private businesses Buffett likes to acquire.

Also, episode 7 is in development.

 

Oh, and one last observation...  it's interesting to see both Pixar and LucasFilm now part of the same company, since Pixar was started inside Lucas a long, long time ago.

While the general media is consumed with Sandy (for good reasons), it seems to me there are a healthy amount of M/A activity this week (Sun-Wed, at least).

 

 

PVH to Buy Warnaco Group for $2.9 Billion

Disney to buy Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion

Carlyle to Buy Diversey Japan for $377 Million

Bayer to Buy Schiff Nutrition for $1.2 Billion

Riverbed Technology to Buy Opnet for $993 Million

Clean Harbors to Acquire Safety-Kleen for $1.25 Billion

 

 

Maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing. But it's interesting for me.
