Comcast to form new, $4 billion investment company

Michael Angelakis, the top Comcast Corp. executive who headed the negotiations for NBCUniversal and Time Warner Cable Inc., will leave his post to head a new Comcast-controlled company that will invest in growth-oriented companies.

The new company will be capitalized at $4.1 billion with Comcast as the only nonmanagement investor. The company will launch this year or in early 2016 with Angelakis investing $40 million of his money into the venture, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
