BETHPAGE, N.Y. (AP) Shareholders of Cablevision Systems Corp. rejected on Wednesday a $10.6 billion bid by the company's controlling shareholders, the Dolan family, to take the New York-area cable TV provider private.
The deal had faced opposition from large shareholders, proxy advisory firms and Wall Street analysts who said the company should have a higher value than the $36.26 per share the Dolans had agreed to pay.
The defeat of the Dolans bid leaves Cablevision to continue as a stand-alone public company.
