Warner Bros. and Paramount Global may merge – level 3

29-12-2023 15:00

A potential merger between Warner Brothers Discovery and Paramount Global, two major entertainment conglomerates, is being discussed.

The CEOs of both companies, David Zaslav and Bob Bakish, recently met in Manhattan to explore the possibility. The merger would create a massive media entity, combining assets like Warner Brothers Studios and Paramount Plus streaming service. While business advantages are evident, questions remain about the details and which company would absorb the other.

Federal regulators might play a role, and the likelihood of the merger passing is uncertain, given the challenges faced by major mergers in the current business landscape.

Difficult words: conglomerate (a large corporation formed by the merging of different companies), entity (a thing with independent existence), evident (clear).
