CBS Dismisses Merger Talks

Les Moonves, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director of CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) said on CNBC in February 2015 that CBS was "very happy being alone," and the Chief Executive Officer doubled down on that talk at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference. Moonves says his Chief Operating Officer tells him that CBS will be a $100 stock in four years, so buyers or merger partners like Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) or Viacom, Inc. (NasdaqGS:VIAB) would have to pay "a very high price." CBS faces new negotiations with DIRECTV (NasdaqGS:DTV) and Cablevision Systems Corporation (NYSE:CVC) at the end of 2015.

DIRECTV Announces Dismissal of Merger Lawsuits with AT&T

DIRECTV announced that it said in a filing that seven shareholder lawsuits opposing its merger with AT&T have been dismissed. DIRECTV said six lawsuits filed in Delaware Chancery Court and one in the California Superior Court had accused both companies and their directors of allegedly breaching their fiduciary duties by agreeing to merge. The lawsuits said the companies failed to get more money for DIRECTV and wanted to stop the merger as well as get compensation for damages and legal costs. DIRECTV said the Delaware lawsuits were consolidated but later its lead attorney filed a motion to voluntarily dismiss the cases, which the court granted in October 2014. On Feb. 9, the plaintiff in the California lawsuit also voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit.
