**Abstract** Let denote the open unit disk { *z* | |*z*| < 1 }, and denote the closed right half-plane { *s* | Re(*s*) }.

(1) Let *W*^{ + } be the Wiener algebra of the disc, that is the set of all absolutely convergent Taylor series in the open unit disk , with pointwise operations.

(2) Let *W*^{ + } be the set of all functions defined in the right half-plane that differ from the Laplace transform of a function *f*_{a} *L*^{1} by a
constant. Equipped with pointwise operations, *W*^{ + }forms a ring.

We show that the rings *W*^{ + } and *W*^{ + } are pre-Bézout rings.
