Cobra Not Going Into House Of Mouse; Disney Not In Talks With Hasbro

Remember the Hasbro & Disney Talks from earlier this week? As reported by sister site TFW2005, Hasbro is not actually in talks with Disney. As posted by Sol Fury:

” On the back of the recent rumors that talks were underway between Hasbro and Disney about a possible Disney buyout of Hasbro, the Providence Journal reports a spike in Hasbro share prices. More importantly, there is also the closest we are likely to get to an official comment on matters right now:
Hasbro declined comment [in the Disney purchase rumor], citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro’s advisors told him there’s “absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form” involving Hasbro or Disney.

Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn’t make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney’s competitors.[/I]

So there you have it. For now, consider the rumors of a Disney buyout debunked.

    Ah. It makes sense now.

    Stock prices went up.

    They made profit and didn't even have to give us new toys.

    Started as a rumor and ended up as nothing. Most of us got all worried and bent out of shape for nothing.

    Gotta say part of me is somewhat disappointed... Could have possibly been a great thing for the brand.

    Utilizing this logic, Disney is also in talks to acquire Pepsi, Mattel, The Bridge Direct and Lego, and to merge with Time-Warner and Apple. Can't debunk it till the companies all release a press release!

    'Tis the way of the internets.
    If there is the slightest bit of negative or disliked news, the most practical thing to do is freak out and worry your world (or favorite toys) is ending.
