Cris Nicolli, UXCAustralia-based UXC has agreed to a buyout offer from Computer Sciences Corp. That translates to about 90 cents per share. In Australian dollars, that is $1.22 per share plus a 2-cent-per share interim dividend for the half year ending December 31. The companies did not do the math but there were about 330 million shares outstanding when UXC's year ended on June 30 so that puts the deal around $297 million. The total of $1.24 per share is down from the initial $1.26-per-share offer.
