Abstract:

In January 2006, the US based media and entertainment company Walt Disney announced that it would acquire its animation partner Pixar for US$ 7.4 billion in stock. The deal was expected to be finalized by mid-2006. Disney and Pixar were already under an agreement to produce six animation movies. However, this partnership later faced problems and Pixar started looking out for other partners in early 2004. The case primarily examines the partnership agreement between Disney and Pixar and puts forth the incidents that led Pixar to look out for other partners. It describes how the new CEO Robert Iger, who succeeded Michael Eisner, went on to re-establish ties with Pixar and Steve Jobs, who held 50.6% equity stake in Pixar. The case highlights the advantages and pitfalls of the deal for Disney and Pixar.
