I heard a recent rumour that Telstra had purchased 100% of MIT in the form
of options or something similar, or something over 24 months?

Have I been informed correctly?

There is no indication on the ASC registar, but that doesn't mean there
isn't an agreement between Telstra Corporation and Melbourne Information
Technology Australia to fortify this ownership in, say, 24 months time.
I'm lead to beleive this took place on 1, April 1998.

If so, does this therfore make MIT a 100% Telstra Subsidary?

If it's not true, can we have an OFFICIAL statement, dated, assuring this
rumour isn't true?
