Goldman Sachs has been appointed by Virgin Media as its sole corporate broker, the cableco has announced.

In a statement the company said the appointment followed the completion of its refinancing programme with the support of Goldman Sachs and other banking business partners, and last Octoberís secondary listing on the London Stock Exchange.

Earlier this week it was reported by The Sunday Times that Goldman and UBS had been engaged in the sale of Virginís 50% holding in UKTV, a suggestion that may have been over-emphasised, though Virgin itself refuses to comment on such speculation.
