NEW YORK: John Malone's Liberty Global Inc struck a deal to buy British cable group Virgin Media for about 10.05 billion pounds ($15.75 billion), a move that would put the U.S. billionaire up against old rival Rupert Murdoch.
Liberty and Virgin said in a statement on Tuesday that under the terms of the deal, Virgin Media shareholders will receive $17.50 in cash, 0.2582 Liberty Global class A shares and 0.1928 Liberty Global class C shares for each Virgin Media share. Using Tuesday's closing prices for those shares, that implies a value of $47.02 for each Virgin Media share.
Virgin Media is the second-biggest pay-TV provider in Britain behind Murdoch's satellite group BSkyB. - Reuters
