Vodafone Reportedly Eyes £1 Bln Tax Relief In Cable & Wireless Worldwide Deal

Vodafone Group Plc (VOD) may save £1 billion in taxes if its bid for Cable & Wireless Worldwide Plc (CW.L) succeeds, the Sunday Times reported.

Vodafone may reduce its tax bill by this amount because Cable & Wireless has posted £5.2 billion in capital losses, the report said. The savings would cover most of the cost of the potential acquisition, the report stated.
