Cable & Wireless HKT will delay sending shareholders a document on its proposed merger with Pacific Century CyberWorks for at least a week, according to a company source. The document carrying the HKT board's recommendation of the merger probably would be sent on May 26, six days later than planned, the source said. The late dispatch of the document could cause a delay of HKT's extraordinary general meeting, scheduled for June 26. Shareholders are expected to vote on the merger at the meeting, depending on a High Court review of the merger document. The Securities and Futures Commission submitted the document to the court on Wednesday, one day late. 'It is such a complicated document the court might need more time,' the HKT source said. Management at CyberWorks and HKT would start a roadshow to promote the merger in early June, the source said. The delay in sending the document to HKT's shareholders was only technical in nature, a source close to CyberWorks said. As a result, it would have no bearing on whether Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) revived its bid for HKT. However, SingTel could initiate a new bid with a mainland partner next week, sources close to the company said. Analysts said the likelihood that SingTel would revive its bid increased yesterday, when the company's plan to buy 14 per cent of Time Engineering - Malaysia's fibre-optic network - was rejected. Nonetheless, Australia-based Telstra denied that SingTel was in discussions about joining any of its ventures with HKT. Telstra also denied reports that MobileOne Asia - Singapore's No 2 cellular-telephone company, in which Cable & Wireless of Britain and HKT each own about 15 per cent - and Thailand's Total Access Communications had been invited to join the Australian company's proposed pan-Asian mobile venture. Telstra is in talks to buy 25 per cent of Total Access. HKT's share price rose 2.9 per cent yesterday to finish at HK$17.75, while CyberWorks was unchanged at HK$13.60. SingTel edged up one Singapore cent to end at S$2.34 (about HK$10.56).
