What Companies Did Disney Buy


There are hundreds of private companies under the Walt Disney Company, but what's interesting and important to note is that the company also has involvement in many other businesses besides the ones in which they are the sole owners.

Disney also owns several miscellaneous companies from Port Canaveral, Florida to Aulani. Most of these are additional companies acquired when Walt needed to acquire lands for Disney World and had to resort to diverting his investment through other companies.

Walt Disney was driven and committed to having acquired and built such an empire from scratch. He fulfilled his dream of building a family entertainment empire and had to acquire lots of companies to achieve that. They are no doubt the best in the entertainment industry and this brand resonates well with children.

Growing up, I enjoyed a lot of Disney shows, and my favorite was The Lion King. With the rate at which things are moving, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up buying and forming more mergers with other entertainment companies.

We haven't heard the last of Disney as I believe the company is making more plans to expand. Nonetheless, I hope I have helped you learn and explore the number of assets owned by the Disney group of companies. It's high time to storyboard.

Ever since The Walt Disney Company was founded in 1923, it has steadily been adding other companies and brands to its roster. Today, Disney is worth an estimated $130 billion and retains a staggering media empire as well as other businesses.

Disney believes the transaction has a clear and timely path to regulatory approval. Both companies have spent the past six months working toward meeting all conditions necessary for closing. In the amended agreement, Disney has increased the scope of its commitment to take actions required to secure regulatory approval.

The amended agreement has been approved by the boards of directors of Disney and 21st Century Fox. The transaction is subject to approval by Disney and 21st Century Fox shareholders, clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, a number of other non-United States merger and other regulatory reviews, and other customary closing conditions. Both companies had been scheduled to hold shareholder meetings on the previously announced transaction on July 10. In light of the amended agreement, the companies are required to prepare updated SEC filings and proxy materials which will be sent to shareholders. A new date for the shareholder meetings will be announced.

I love visualizing how insane it is that Disney owns this much stuff. Just in entertainment, the ownership of ESPN, ABC, Fox, Pixar, LucasFilm, FX, Marvel, among others is an insane idea. But that doesn't even begin to be the tip of the iceberg. Because included with all those catalogs are all their affiliates and programs. And all the rights of everything purchased since each of those companies existed.

It's hard to wrap one's mind around just how big The Walt Disney Company is, and how it seems to only be gaining momentum. This kind of power will shape all of the media for the next century. All the companies Disney owns helps the house of mouse gain power across the world. And we've barely covered every company Disney owns because they also branch out into other businesses as well.

In a vertical merger, two or more companies that produce the same finished products through different supply chain functions team-up. This procedure helps in creating more synergies and cost-efficiency.

The main reason for the merger between Disney and Pixar was for Walt Disney to acquire and use the modern animation technology of Pixar to expand its reach in the market, whereas Pixar was now able to use Walt Disney's vast distribution network and funds. The acquisition gave Disney new ideas and technology, which helped the company produce more blockbuster movies. The negotiation that led to the Disney-Pixar merger was also instrumental in the company's success. Th
