The article reports on the decision of Cablevision Systems Corp. chairman Chuck Dolan and chief executive officer (CEO) Jim Dolan to offer $30 per share of stock to outside investors in the U.S. It was speculated that the Dolans would raise the bid because the stocks traded at $27.70 each in October 26, 2006. The $27 per share amounts to $19.2 million, $7.9 billion in cash and $11.3 billion debt. The Dolans want to fund the privatization bid through loan and debt issuances.
