As you should be. Viacom has at least $1 billion in debt, their stock worth is barely worth anything, and their movie arm, Paramount is somewhere between $12-$15 billion in debt and with stale IP's to boot. Viacom needed this far more then CBS did.
Do you mind if we discuss mergers/acquisitions on this forums at any given time? If so, what ones to do you feasibly happening in the future? I imagine that within the next decade, Netflix is gonna take a serious beating from competition in the streaming market. As a result it could loose a considerable amount of money, leaving them with the decision to let themselves be bought out. If so, who do you think could buy them? If not Disney then certainly Universal.
As long as it doesn't become excessive, then I have no problem at all.
And yes, I do see Netflix going down or being absorbed. As it stands now, they have over $8 billion in debt. Disney has devoured enough companies by now so either Universal or a revived/basically brand new Paramount will buy them.
