November 6, 2014

By Chris Forrester

Despite many stories of Sky Deutschland shareholders being disinclined to accept the terms on offer by BSkyB, it seems 87.54 per cent of Sky Deutschland’s shareholders have accepted the BSkyB offer of €6.75

BSkyB, in a regulatory statement issued early on November 6th, said the acceptance period ended as planned on November 3rd and the settlement of the take-over offer is expected to happen on November 12th.

The 87.54 per cent mentioned includes the 57.45 per cent stake held by 21st Century Fox.
