Cable & Wireless Talks to Rival Thus

Cable & Wireless PLC, the united Kingdom telecommunications company, said it had approached smaller rival Thus Group PLC about a possible bid, which, according to one London-based analyst, would likely be in the range of £270 million to £280 million ($534 million to $554 million). Thus, which is unprofitable, mainly provides fixed-line and wireless telecom services to businesses and the public sector. Its Internet provider, Demon, largely serves small businesses. Cable & Wireless said the approach wasn't a firm intention to make an offer.
