    OKAY .. so it's a tax bugaboo

    fair enough .. it's probably been the only nit for the past few years to get the VOD deal done .. should be some
    way around that .... maybe a stock only deal (adr's) .. or something that allows VOD shareholders to have
    paper in the US that is like off shore money and only subject to taxes at the discretion of the VOD holders when
    they should choose to sell ??? or just spread the thing out over 5- 10 years .....
    i should imagine that VZ would like to get those preferred shares retired .. that's quite a cash drain .. 2.9 bil
    in 1 quarter ??? ...
    i'm more confident than ever , however , that the VOD will get done .... just hope it's sooner than later .. garce
