5:00 PM -- Having broken off merger talks with Draka earlier this year, Italian cable specialist Prysmian has a €1 billion warchest for acquisitions and is looking at growth markets like China, India, and Russia, reports Reuters.

Prysmian SpA and Draka Holding NV (Amsterdam: DRAK.AS) failed to agree on the terms and conditions of a merger that would have created a significant force in the European fiber access market, which is set to grow significantly in the coming few years.
