Steve Burke, Brian Roberts’ Memo to Staff Before Today’s NBCU Town Hall
Each employee is given 25 shares of Comcast and a free family pass to a Universal theme park.
NBCU and Comcast are officially merging Thursday with a Town Hall meeting.
Read the letter from Steve Burke and Brian Roberts all employees received:
Today marks the birth of the new NBCUniversal. Together, Comcast and NBCUniversal are poised to become the greatest media company in the world, delivering quality content to a global audience on every conceivable platform
We are incredibly excited about this opportunity. We're humbled, too, since we are keenly aware that NBC and Universal both have tremendous legacies, reaching back nearly a century.
Although only half as old, Comcast also has a proud history, having grown from a single system cable operator to the largest video and residential Internet service provider in the country.
As we embark on this adventure together, it seems like a good time to reflect on how we got here. That's why we put this book together. We hope you enjoy it and will be proud to be a part of what we've become.
The book is just one element of a gift package marking this occasion. Included is a certificate entitling you to 25 shares of stock in Comcast Corporation. Our hope is that you share ownership of this company and what we accomplish together.
You’ll also find a free pass for you and your family to one of the Universal theme parks – because we want you to get to know all our businesses, and have some fun, too.
And we’ve included what we’re calling “The Big Idea Book.” We’re a company founded on and driven by big ideas, and this gives you a place to record your own.
Last but not least, you’ll see a copy of the NBCUniversal Credo. This is, quite literally, what we believe. We hope you’ll agree, and come to see these as not just words but the distillation of a company culture that defines who we are, what we do, and how we do it.
NBCUniversal and Comcast are remarkable companies.
Together, we will be even better.
Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and CEO, Comcast Corporation
