Tata looks for $2B loan to finance possible Cable & Wireless acquisition

Tata Communications (NYSE: TCL), according to a Reuters report, is trying to get $2 billion in loans to support a possible offer for Cable & Wireless Worldwide (LSE: CW.L) in addition to refinancing debt.

A report emerged last week that the Indian-based service provider was mulling a possible offer for the UK-based C&W Worldwide, its first deal in about three years.

According to unnamed sources cited in the Reuters article, Standard Chartered is serving as the M&A adviser to Tata and will also have a big part in driving "financial backing" for the bid.

However, Tata Communications is being tight-lipped about any possible deal for the UK-based service provider.
