    fair value 6.62 + another share repurch

    Fair value based on 119p UK close and 1.8524 $/� is $6.62-6.78.

    also, the share repurchase continues...
    "Cable & Wireless PLC 18 November 2004
    Cable and Wireless plc announces that on 18 November 2004, it purchased 5,000,000 ordinary shares from Cazenove & Co. Ltd at a price of 118.86p per ordinary share and now holds a total of 16,550,000 ordinary shares in Treasury. The total number of ordinary shares in issue (excluding shares held as Treasury shares) is 2,373,153,231.".

    I won't post any more repurchases unless there is something unusual, like an extraordinary mumber of shares or such. Just assume they are happening every day at ~5M per day. At this rate it should take about 8 weeks to break the 10% level this first tranche is aimed at. After that there is still another 5% approved, but they would need to be retired (I think) instead of held as "treasury shares".

    • Northbest,

      IF you would, I would not mind seeing an update on the share repurchase every week or so, in addition to any untypical days. That should not be too many messages in an 8 week program.

        Note: first change of "seller" (CW starting to shop around so as not to attract too much prediction I suppose)
