AT&T Takeover of Time Warner Cleared

AT&T Inc. was cleared by a judge to take over Time Warner Inc. in an $85 billion deal that will fuel the mobile-phone giant’s evolution into a media powerhouse and could spark a wave of new mergers, Bloomberg reported. US District Judge Richard Leon on Tuesday rejected the justice department’s request for an order blocking the Time Warner acquisition, saying the government failed to make its case that the combination would lead to higher prices for pay-TV subscribers. The judge put no conditions on the deal. Time Warner gained as much as 5.8% in after-hours trading, while AT&T fell as much as 3.9%. After nearly two years, AT&T is on the cusp of completing its acquisition of Time Warner, a deal it struck in a bid to become an entertainment giant that can feed Time Warner programming like HBO and CNN to its 119 million mobile, internet and video customers, and go head-to-head with Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. The company said in a statement that it plans to complete the takeover on or before June 20.
