It's kind of nice to know that if Vodafone is really gonna quit Japan, at least they're gonna go out for top dollar. That reported 12.3 billion they were offered by Softbank? Well, it looks like that proposal may (or may not) be outbid. as supposedly they got a $15 billion figure from Cerberus Partners LP and Providence Equity Partners Inc. Could this signal the start of a bidding war over the ailing wing of one of the world's largest carriers? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
