More Slicing At Western Union


In Business This Week

MORE SLICING AT WESTERN UNION

Western Union just keeps shrinking. On Dec. 31, the company completed the sale of its electronic-mail and telex businesses to AT&T for $180 million. Most of the proceeds went to retire $335 million worth of junk bonds at 50~ on the dollar. What's left of Western Union?

And more debt: The company is warning creditors that "further refinancing of debt will be required in 1991."EDITED BY HARRIS COLLINGWOOD
