BusinessWeek: DreamWorks’ IPO, Disney’s Nightmare. The hits just keep on coming for Michael Eisner — and not necessarily the good kind. The Disney (DIS) chief executive, under fire for apparently driving away Steve Jobs’s Pixar Animation (PIXR ) unit, now has to watch his one-time studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg take dead aim at Disney’s animation stronghold.
DreamWorks Animation Inc. filed its IPO yesterday. Unfortunately, no material contracts were included in its filing. There will be some interesting agreements that will be filed later by amendment though, including employment/consulting agreements with Katzenberg, Geffen and Spielberg. Stay tuned.
