AT&T announced plans in the middle of 2014 to merge with DirecTV for $48.5 billion. At the time, CEO Randall Stephenson said that the move marked an opportunity for the company to change the video entertainment industry. AT&T also laid to rest a $45 million class action lawsuit for allegedly violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Look for the company to layoff employees due to the deal in the upcoming months, too. The telecom said it planned to reduce costs by $2.5 billion due to “cost synergies” last year. Revenues rose modestly at about 3% year-over-year.
