Disney says Dis-nay to acquiring a controlling interest in Nexon

Darn.

It made sense when we heard the rumor that Disney was interested in acquiring Nexon; the South Korean company has a large number of successful titles in operation, and the Walt Disney Company has steadily ensured that it controls every form of entertainment that people consume and enjoy from birth until our twilight years. But it turns out that the rumor was never anything more than a rumor, as Korean newspaper The Chosun Ilbo has stated that Disney does not have any interest in acquiring the company.

The paper’s report specifies that a pitch was made to Disney in the hopes of enticing the entertainment giant to purchase the company, but there was no interest in making the purchase and there will be no deal. This hardly means there’s no interest in purchasing Nexon, of course; it just means that the acquisition will not involve mouse ears and notations of who is now a Disney princess. The current actual firms in the running include an unnamed firm along with Kakao, Bain Capital, Tencent, and Netmarble.

Iʻll say the same thing I said to variety, Disney is a subsidiarity that is more than three hundred million in debt to the sole shareholder, they do not have the money to operate let alone buy stuff. Most of the articles are written by people who do not check the information before publishing. ESPN bought ABCʻs controlling interest in the Disney Corporation because playdomʻs CEO was not the C level executive of Disney but neither Cindy Eisner nor myself could find out what happened to her father. I bought out all of ABC stock via family transfer and got in a lot of trouble over it, yet the only reason Disney is operating still with out care for A= ownership, B = Broker, C = C level executive namely the Chief executive officer, chief financial officer, etc.. is because the case was looking into by the SEC and DHS and both of those organizations are under investigation by congress right now so all the things that would happen in court have to wait for congress to finish what they are doing, but the embezzlement by Roy Urb is documented as stock futures and stock fraud. Half the employees are trying to pretend they have no idea what is going on and acting as if they do not do what Volt Staffing and Payroll tells them they will be terminated for cause by Volt. All the shares for Disney Corporation are still with ESPN, except those that I have in the Disney Volt inside the Casting Central Vault, which Roy urb paid Barry Swartz who was only hired at Disney because of Space Balls and he promised Rose Catherine Pinkerton that he was straight and not trying to revenge for being kicked off the property in 1999. I signed paperwork both times to make both actions happen as the holder of forty one percent of Disneyʻs Stock. Roy Urb is still claiming that he can print stock and live off Disney because no one is going to do anything about it. As as I know Disney is only subsidiarity that is refusing to change itʻs practices to become profitable, which includes paying people at least minimum wage and getting rid of things like cut the line pass where the employee takes a cut of money from the gate to cause people to not want to go to Disney World or Disney Land. The security are all employees that were hired as ticketing information and while some actually know what they are doing eventually Disney either accepts that the shareholders have a right to fire any and all employees especially c level employees or they face criminal charges. I honestly would prefer they accept logic and work with me to come to better plan for making money. The property has to be dug up by December of this year because of the toxic waste stored there by Walt Disney years ago. As long as they think they can put the shareholder on vacation until he is there for a birthday party for every year he has been alive at one a year, they face closure. I do not like the all or nothing but until the embezzlement is addressed and the attempt by several members of the board of the federal reserve attempting to buy futures from employees, there is no point to doing anything other than pressing charges as I did that in 2013. In theory Disney as the happiest place on earth is still a goal worth aiming for, Disney running an MMO is what infinity was supposed to lead to. Avalanche Studios gave a tour to an artist that went to work for Zoic Studios as his wife was working at the front desk there. He did not know I was the investor for Zoic so said he got a tour of Avalanche Studios and copies everything down. Disney was still busy hiding what they were doing by naming studios so no one knew where they were located as they were not supposed to be making adult content or any Smutt or Mutt. The by laws for Disney Corporation are really weird. Anyway I was waiting for investments to payout last year to admit Disney shareholder status until Barry hired me because his budget was empty and he could pay the shareholder even if the company was under a hiring freeze. I own all the stock in Disney they are not buying stock in other companies. They need to fix the scam before they represent anything more than an unprofitable subsidiary that has been borrowing against stock they do not own. The idea of Disney as Walt Disney saw it is a good one, and due to the nonsense caused by Roy Urb, much like what he tried and failed to do with Lucky Oswald, the animals are going away. I checked that the various groups that have to deal with the crowds and they do not fear having people see there faces. So as soon as next year the anthropomorphic characters are archived. The paper mache was already going away even if I have to pay for it out of other budgets. Every one needs money and usually the ones least able to be appealing ask for more than the rest. Roy Urb was fired from the Detroit Sentinel and barred from the Disney Property and it was only corruption at the federal reserve that nearly caused a worse stock crash than 1908 to 1921, that made Disney less than a happy place for children.

I would have preferred they bought Trion (who in turn owns Gazillions assets) as then we might have got Marvel Online back lol

Also, if Bain Capital buys Nexon, that’s potentially the death knell for it. They’re famous for stripping companies bare and discarding the husk.

Yup, I got a real chuckle reading Bain Capital was in the running.

I just want and dream of Disney taking back control of Star Wars games from EA. What are they going to do with that gaming division they just opened?

That division is apparently focused on managing the license, not actually making games. Basically they’ll just keep an eye on all their partners working on Star Wars titles and keep all that stuff centralized to a single department specializing in that area rather than other departments handling.

I really dont think Disney wants to get too involved with the games market outside of licensing.

The more time goes on the more solid that feeling gets for me.
