Re: Dividend cover 0.98

INMARSAT pays out slightly more in dividends per share than it makes in earnings after tax etc per share.

If they don't need the cash, why keep it? It would just make the company a more attractive takeover target for bungling foreign corporations who'd add nothing other than price rises for customers.
