21st Century Fox Reduces Suspension Of Voting Rights Of Class B Common Stock Held By Non-U.S. Stockholders

In advance of the annual meeting of stockholders of Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (the “Company”) to be held on October 18, 2013 (the “Annual Meeting”), the Company announced that the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Committee”) has reduced the previously-announced suspension of voting rights of shares of Class B Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Class B Common Stock”), held by stockholders who are not U.S. citizens (“Non-U.S. Stockholders”) from 40% to 35%.

Based on the information currently reasonably available to the Company, the Committee determined that approximately 31% of the Class B Common Stock is owned by Non-U.S. Stockholders; and the combined ownership of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and Class B Common Stock by Non-U.S. Stockholders remains less than 25% of the combined outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock.

As previously-announced, the Murdoch Family Trust and K. Rupert Murdoch have agreed not to vote or provide voting instructions with respect to a portion of the shares of Class B Common Stock they own during the period of the voting rights suspension, and their aggregate percentage vote will remain at 39.4% of the outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock.

As a result of the 35% voting suspension, as of August 21, 2013, the record date for the Annual Meeting, there were 711,912,688 shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.
