"At the margin, the news may be seen as negative for investor sentiment on Sky as it may limit Comcast's ability to counter-bid should Fox raise its offer for Sky", UBS said. The deal was subject to approval from Disney and Fox shareholders, and it also needed to be approved by merger and regulatory reviews, as well as meet other "closing conditions".
