Four Essentials from CTFN this Week

Opening the October 18 public hearing before the New York Department of Financial Services on the Aetna/CVS merger, DFS Superintendent Maria Vullo noted that her agency has approval authority over only one Aetna subsidiary, but then went on to elaborate how DFS touches various Aetna and CVS businesses in New York, particularly through license renewals, stating that DFS has a responsibility to protect New York policyholders under what she called its “broad authority.”

Brazilian regulator CADE is expected to approve the merger between The Walt Disney Company and Twenty-First Century Fox subject to behavioral remedies, a Brasilia-based antitrust lawyer close to the matter told CTFN.

Takeda expects to hear from the European Commission by the end of the week regarding potential concerns the commission might have with Takeda’s acquisition of Shire, a source close to the situation told CTFN.

The C-band Alliance, an entity announced two weeks ago which includes Intelsat, SES, Eutelsat, and Telesat is expected to increase the amount of spectrum it intends to clear for possible sale if the Federal Communications Commission approves its proposal for making 3.7 gigahertz to 4.2 GHz available for terrestrial use, three industry sources told CTFN.
