Microsoft will pay Activision $3 billion if the acquisition fails


Microsoft is striving to complete its acquisition of Activision Blizzard, especially after the deal was rejected by CMA, and recently an interesting piece of information was revealed, the company will be fined a huge amount even if the deal fails.

Reports say that even if the deal fails to gain the necessary approvals, Microsoft will still have to pay Activision Blizzard a significant amount, namely, a $3 billion separation fee.

This information was disclosed in CNBC interview With Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, when asked how the company is going to invest that money, he said, “I think our number one focus is trying to get the deal done, which I think is in the interest of the industry and the competition. If that doesn’t get done, I think we’ll have We will have close to $18 billion in cash by the end of the year, and I think if you look at our 30-year history, we’ve allocated capital for our shareholders very well and will continue to do so.”

$ 3 billion is nothing compared to the $ 69 billion deal value, but it’s still a huge amount, and it represents nearly half the value of Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda.
