Liberty Media-Time Warner Cable talk starts to build again

|About: Liberty Media Corp (LMCA)|By:, SA News Editor

Liberty Media (LMCA -1.9%) CEO Greg Maffei says he would be surprised if any bidder emerged with an offer as high as $150 per share for Time Warner Cable (TWC +0.1%).

Analysts are taking the comment somewhat lightly as Liberty is still expected to put together an offer before Charter is able to beat it to the punch. The deal by Liberty to acquire full control of Sirius XM Radio sets it up to scrap together more capital for a TWC bid.
