Last week in media: corporate action at AT&T, Mediaset and Lions Gate, profit warning from Publicis

Monday 14 October 2019 | 07:02 CET | News
AT&T enjoyed a solid opening weekend for its much anticipated Joker movie. Sony is prepping the launch of its PlayStation 5 console for 2020 and Deezer may be aiming for a stock market listing by 2020. The courts halted the planned merger of Mediaset and Mediaset Spain, while AT&T sold some of its Latin America assets and Lions Gate was looking to spin off its Starz business. A profit warning turned Publicis into last week's biggest loser, down 17 percent. The Telecompaper Global Media index ended week 41 up 0.9 percent, ahead of the S&P 500 (+0.6%).
