from the internets: DHX Buys Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake for 345 Million Dollars.

By Mike Valiquette

This is all over the internet today. Canadian media giant, DHX Media just made a deal to buy Iconix Brand Group for $345 000 000.00 (I’m assuming USD).

Iconix owns 80% of Peanuts, and 100% of Strawberry Shortcake.

Here’s Deadline Hollywood on it: http://deadline.com/2017/05/peanuts-strawberry-shortcake-acquired-dhx-media-1202088595/
