Activision Blizzard shareholders approve their acquisition by Microsoft
The shareholders of Activision Blizzard have approved by vote the purchase of the company by Microsoft . In fact, the results have been overwhelming, since 98% of votes have been achieved in favor. This statistic has been commented on by Bobby Kotick, CEO of the company, pointing out that the results reaffirm that adhesion will benefit the work environment within the company.
«The overwhelmingly favorable vote of our shareholders confirms our shared belief that, combined with Microsoft, we will be even better positioned to create great value for our players, even more opportunities for our employees, and to continue our focus on becoming an inspiring example from a cozy, respectful and inclusive workplace, ”said Kotick.
However, these results still do not guarantee that the agreement can be closed, since the Federal Commission of Commerce is investigating the case after four American senators denounced that the purchase of activation can affect the demands of the workers. In fact, Bloomberg has published an article today in which they point out that Blizzard Activision Shares still quote 25% less than the $ 95 offered by Microsoft, so from the middle they point to this situation putting at risk the operation.
To close, in any case, we know that it would do so in the fiscal year of Microsoft that ends on June 30, 2023, an agreement for 68.7 billion dollars.
