Getting out actually the -- the delivery of government this has been this question of how. But very different resolve. It's US strategy has been -- that these entitled -- him for a long time that the but actually securing a -- it's been very Holland the achieve. What you want him and delegates without -- is is the terms of price. And the mix all cash and -- for the prices being that's being reported on and that's been -- is. Higher than we previously seen so it looks as though we -- that the tells a very sketchy and we don't have a DeLia let's be let's declare. That they possibly. Verizon's opens in response to -- -- -- -- like there hasn't sorting out finance. About busted that is what history of cricket -- -- -- these talks which is and Vodafone has confirmed the tools. I -- somehow these things got out and break from -- press was soft talk about I don't know his -- had thermal from a looks. Say the market is really. Treated by this and clearly thinks that something happened and if that doesn't happen now off to was part of all the veterans -- -- now confirmed that its its gonna pretty about. -- They do law I mean that this has talked about earlier this year has been told -- 100 billion was an initial figure out the but I defend our beliefs and was not enough right. Well -- it event has been -- both of them both of them the low end. And assessments for this. Depending on what multiple. Typically one to apply. To overall as long as you can get up -- -- little north of hundred. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Eritrea I think you're looking at some pretty good value there is a -- -- there is. Curious tax treatment capital gains tax treatment and a as golf build the world divided over whether this is manageable and cause more. Or potentially deal breaker. One assumes if we get in the stage rivers and most of them talks. Some way this has been at least at least minimize if not -- attributed to its members and 1010 billion -- a vessel printed in an instant answers so it's it's it's in that is -- -- -- clearly give me. To determine the actual. And -- all. Would that offend you -- -- -- you know -- -- whatever they handed -- we'll have a legitimate don't want my question -- and I'm one of the -- -- -- are they going to count of shopping -- the could that be. -- an America without them by.
