NTL Incorporated and the Independent Board of Virgin Mobile Holdings (UK) plc have reached agreement on the terms of a cash offer, with a share alternative offer and a cash and share alternative offer, to be made by ntl and one of its wholly owned subsidiaries to acquire the entire share capital of Virgin Mobile.

The options offered to Virgin Mobile shareholders are 372 pence in cash for each Virgin Mobile share; or 0.23245 shares of ntl common stock for each Virgin Mobile share; or 0.18596 shares of ntl common stock plus 67 pence in cash, for each Virgin Mobile share.

The Cash Offer values Virgin Mobile at approximately GBP 962.4 million (US$ 1.68 billion).
