I don't see how this company is still around. Incrediably high debt and bleeding cash.

Incredibly high debt that they will struggle to service over time. Long term debt makes their Market Cap look small...

Balance sheet is horrible, huge debt, undercapitalized, no earnings, and yet still paying a dividend...

Per TRGoodvsEvil:

"Virgin lives the "don't be evil" philosophy.

While they live the "get massively in debt but pretend it's ok because we're especially righteous philosophy", I'll live the Incompetent Moralf Leadership = Fail philosophy.

Horribly red sheets on this one.

Current ratio is a stellar .6, it has 6 billion british pounds in debt (10 billion USD). If nothing else it should underperform, and I believe there's at least a small chance it'll croak.

In advance talk to sell two divisions: Business Division to Cable and Wireless and three other suitors are in talks to buy TV channels including Bravo.

This is a very innnovative company that is very well positioned to corner it's segment of the UK market.

VMEDs most recent "good" news is that his has cut its losses for the last quarter. Yet is has consistantly underperformed, while its chief rival, BSY, has only taken a slight cut in its profits. With no new technologies, releases or other profit boosters on the horizon, the best it can hope for is to slowly curb its losses by gaining more subscribers. I expect VMED to continue to slip for at least a few more months

I could write a book about how much I like virgin mobile, but I'll leave it simple. I like this company's style and vision a lot. I don't know anything about their cable and content areas, but I imagine they are run under the same philosophy. Well priced, flexible, helpful, friendly, and not corporately uptight. Also, they are visually growing pretty fast in the US for a company across seas.

Focus on the cash flow. Also, high probability that it will get bought out.

Pending major buyout - Buy before the deal closes and you'll be a happy camper over the next few years!
