CABLE AND WIRELESS (West Indies) Limited (CWWI) has launched a near $77 million bid for full control of its Barbados business.
But if it wants the more than 26.8 million common shares (18.93 per cent) outstanding in Cable & Wireless (Barbados) Limited (C&W), the telecommunications company will have to convince some major institutional investors to sell.
