AT&T and Time Warner Merger

AT&T announced a $85B merger with Time Warner on October 22nd.  The merger will bring Warner Brothers, CNN and HBO under AT&T’s control.  The Marimekko chart below shows what the combined company’s revenue might look like:

I included the 2015 revenue from each segment and the percentage of the combined company’s 2015 revenue in the Marimekko.  You can see both the key pieces of AT&T’s and Time Warner’s business and the relative contribution of each to the combined company.  I used the chart legend to provide a more detailed explanation of what makes up each segment.  I did this by putting the legend text in the data sheet and then replacing the legend text with the short descriptions in each segment.  Here is the chart in SlideShare to download and edit using Mekko Graphics:
