(“Discovery”) issued a press release announcing a definitive agreement to combine WarnerMedia’s “premier entertainment, sports and news content with leading… to combine Discovery’s non-fiction and international content entertainment and sports businesses to create a premier, standalone global entertainment business” (the “Merger”).

On March 11, 2022, Discovery shareholders voted overwhelmingly to approve the merger, which was subsequently completed on April 8, 2022.
