For $16.7 billion, Comcast is going to take the remaining 49 percent of NBCUniversal off the hands of GE. Besides NBCUniversal, Comcast shelled out an additional $1.4 billion for assets run by NBCUniversal in its New York and New Jersey location.”Our decision to acquire GE’s ownership is driven by our sense of optimism for the future prospects of NBCUniversal and our desire to capture future value that we hope to create for our shareholders,” said Comcast’s CEO Brian L. Roberts. [Source: Comcast]
