Paramount Global calls off merger talks with Skydance

Paramount Global calls off merger talks with Skydance

National Amusements, which owns a majority voting stake in embattled entertainment giant Paramount Global, said Tuesday that it has ended talks on a possible merger of Paramount with movie production company Skydance Media.

The potential deal had drawn attention for weeks amid concerns about Paramount’s future given its heavy debt load and declining television business.

One media report in early June even stated that Paramount and Skydance had agreed to terms of a deal, contingent only on a signoff from Paramount’s controlling shareholder, Shari Redstone. A statement from National Amusements merely noted that the two sides “have not been able to reach mutually acceptable terms” for the deal, AP reported.

Skydance, based in Santa Monica, California, has helped produce some major Paramount hits in recent years. Those include several Tom Cruise films including ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and installments of the ‘Mission Impossible’ series. Its founder and CEO is David Ellison, the son of Oracle founder Larry Ellison.

Paramount has struggled in an evolving media landscape, particularly as its traditional cable business has declined. To capture today’s growing streaming audience, the company launched Paramount+ in 2021, but losses and debts have still piled up over time.
