Q: What are your thoughts on this deal?

Asked by Curtis on March 15, 2021
5i Research Answer:

RCI has coveted Shaw forever, and the family has finally been convinced with a very large premium. It is a big deal for Rogers ($26B all in) and we are sure the regulators are going to be looking at this closely. It is not conditional upon financing. A good price for SJR. Rogers shares may come under some pressure. RCI claims $1B in synergies, and we think it can make a successful merger here, if the regulators allow this.
