Ms. Redstone’s National Amusements, the parent company of CBS and Viacom, seems to have given up on the idea of merging the companies after months of bickering. In a recent court filing, the company  insisted that it no longer supported a deal.

    Viacom: Don't Expect More Buybacks or Dividends

    Don’t expect higher dividends or fresh buybacks from Viacom (VIAB). The question came up Thursday at a Gabelli & Co. conference after CFO Wade Davis said management was “a little frustrated, as potentially some of you all are, with stock prices.” “None of that is anticipated,” Davis said, noting a previously mentioned goal of paying down a debt load that sat around $10 billion at the end of Q1. “And beyond the de-levering objectives that we’ve highlighted for people, we have a pretty broad pipeline of tactical internal investments, as well as small M&A that we’re going to be working through those prior to thinking about restarting any sort of share repurchase program.” The company repurchased 2.1 million shares in fiscal 2016, and 21 million the year before, for a total of $1.6 billion.

    Paramount scraps airing 'Heathers,' citing school violence

    Representatives from parent company Viacom confirmed Saturday that the TV reboot of the 1988 movie black comedy about high-school murder and suicide will not air on Paramount or any other Viacom properties. Viacom says the subject matter is not suitable in the current environment for channels it is attempting to make youth-oriented, but that it is open to the possibility of selling the anthology series to a more fitting outlet. The show based on the film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater had been set to premiere in March, but was delayed after the Parkland, Florida shooting that left 17 dead.

    Maybe Revenge Should Come Before Business

    A couple of weeks ago the board of CBS Corp. tried to get rid of the company’s controlling shareholder, Shari Redstone’s National Amusements Inc., through a two-pronged strategy of (1) holding a board meeting to approve a special dividend that would dilute away her voting control of the company and (2) suing to get a court to say that was okay. The directors held the board meeting anyway, and 11 out of 14 voted to dilute Redstone, which is less than 90 percent, so you’d think Redstone’s strategy was effective.

    Will Shari Redstone Find A Buyer For A Combined CBS-Viacom?

    Let’s put aside the increasingly heated rhetoric between CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves and the media company’s controlling shareholder National Amusements Inc.'s (NAI) Shari Redstone over the on-again, off-again plan to merge CBS and its corporate sibling Viacom and look at the big picture. As Recode’s Edmund Lee and others have noted, Redstone, the daughter of media mogul Sumner Redstone, hopes that a combined CBS-Viacom would tempt a buyer to acquire the company at a larger premium than they would have fetched separately. It isn’t clear when such a deal would happen though Redstone has “tinkered” with the idea of selling the combined CBS and Viacom for “at least a year,” according to Lee.
