Hi. Sorry for my ignorance but I'm really new to this and am really confused, I hope you can help me. I had 2600 CWC shares, and I did nothing, so now I have 21 Liberty A shares and 52 Liberty C shares and I got my CWC dividend. But my confusion is what has happened to my 2600 CWC shares, do they still exist? have they been transfered to something else? What do I own now? Thanks for your help

Monday 16th May is completion day I parted company with my CWC shares at just over 79p each, I will be keeping an eye on LBTYA to see if I was right to do so.!!CABLE & WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS PLC Directorate ChangePhil Bentley Telecoms provider, Cable & Wireless Communications Plc confirms today that Chief Executive Officer, Phil Bentley, will leave the Company on Monday 16th May 2016 on completion of the recommended takeover of the Company by Liberty Global plc.Bentley is credited with establishing the Miami operating hub, launching the investment-led "Project Marlin" strategy, adding world class TV capabilities through the acquisition of Columbus, and delivering a top line growth turnaround of the business.Chairman, Sir Richard Lapthorne said "On behalf of the CWC Board I'd like to thank Phil for his service to the Company. He has transformed the Company's operating performance both financially and culturally, and he master-minded the important acquisition of Columbus, designing and executing an excellent integration programme which is delivering the promised substantial synergy benefits. Combined, these actions have placed CWC's total returns to shareholders in the top decile of telecom performance since he first started. He has also created a highly talented and cohesive management team which is well qualified to continue to drive forward the business under Liberty's guidance.""All in all, his has been an excellent performance and we wish him well in his next role."Phil Bentley said "It's been a privilege to lead CWC over the past two and a half years. I'd like to thank all of our 7,200 colleagues serving customers across more than 40 countries for their hard work and dedication which has created a terrific platform for growth."

Re: Which Option to take? There's another option that you've not mentioned: sell while you still can.Do you really want to own shares in Liberty? Would you be buying them now, even if there were no agreement?Do you really understand the offer? It looks like you don't. Certainly, I don't.HTH

Re: Which Option to take? It is all a bit confusing. Looking at the prices for today with CWS price at £0.79 each, you can work out how much you will get from the prices below. Then you have to add the 3P dividend if you hold on to your CWC shares. Of course all the these prices could change before the final date.Name Bid Ask Price CurrLiberty LiLAC Group A ( LILA) 38.32 $Liberty LiLAC Group B ( LILAB) 11 $Liberty LiLAC Group C ( LILAK) 41.5 $ Liberty Global ( LBTYA) 38.2 $Liberty Global B ( LBTYB) 37.94 $Liberty Global C ( LBTYK) 36.93 $

Which Option to take? Hi AllResponse date is 10/5/16 according TD Waterhouse. But I cannot decide whether to go for the default option or mix and match with the other 3 options. Any thoughts, ideas please would be appreciated. Thank you.
