Word of the potential purchase surfaced in June and the expectation was that Fox would make a higher bid than the $85 per share that had been offered. News of the offer sent shares of Time Warner stock trading above that $85 per share offer at the time.

 

A source had said previously that Fox would not offer more than the $90 to $95 range. Fox did announce a $6 billion share buyback program to help sooth disappointed shareholders. The move has sent shares in Fox up by 7% in trading.
