"In today's fast-paced, constantly evolving multiscreen world, the survival of service providers depends on their ability to launch new services ahead of the competition" said Massimo Bertolotti, head of innovation and multimedia distribution, Sky Italia
...rfoehring, Germany-based group's recommendation was based solely on price, with the company saying both its management and supervisory board largely "share the assessment by the bidder that BSkyB and Sky Deutschland ideally complement each other in the best interests of the company and its dedicated employees, and the remaining Sky Deutschland shareholders, as well as its other stakeholders."
