Activision Blizzard Inc. shares sinks further away from Microsoft Corp.’s proposed takeover price as investors grow concerned that the US antitrust regulators will block the $69 billion deal.

________________

The maker’s stock fell 4.1% to $73.47 this Friday, while Microsoft Corp is offering $95 a share for the company.

The US Federal Trade Commission thinks of filing an antitrust lawsuit to block the sale after the market closed on Wednesday

Glick said,"The market is pricing in roughly 40% odds of the deal successfully closing, based on the assumption that the stock would be trading at $60 should it fail".

________________

From the moment takeover deal was announced in January, the gap between Activision’s trading price and Microsoft’s all-cash bid has been increasing, driven by heightened antitrust scrutiny in the US and Europe.
