Marvel SELLS OUT!!! to Walt Disney

The Comic Book Listings Blog:

In an absolutely Stunning move, Marvel Entertainment Inc. (MVL) has SOLD OUT to Mickey Mouse... er, I mean, to the Walt Disney Co. (DIS), for a mere $4 billion in cash and stock.

Under the deal, which was announced Monday and is expected to close by the end of the year, Disney will acquire the rights to 5,000 Marvel characters.

I can see it now...
"Sleeping Beauty Meets Spiderman"!

"The Seven Dwarfs vs The Fantastic Four",

"The Incredible hulk Seeks the Wizard of OZ".

Holy Mixed Marriages Batman! huuu?

Here's something for ya!
Back on June 2, 2008. I wrote a news article about Marvel Entertainment being Added to the S&P Mid-Cap 400 Index. At that time, Marvel Entertainment shares were selling for $34.89 in after hours trading.

Now Dig This!
Marvel shareholders will receive $30 per share in cash, plus 0.745 Disney shares for every Marvel share they own. That values each Marvel share at $50 based on Friday's closing stock prices.

Marvel shares shot up $9.77, or 25 percent, to $48.42 in afternoon trading Monday. Disney shares fell 79 cents, or 2.9 percent, to $26.05.

Bottom Line?
What do You think of this mixed marriage?

(Especially after the Phenomenal Iron Man Movie produced by Marvel Entertainment.)

Good Thing? ... Bad Thing?
