Investment Banks Reportedly Scrambling To Win Advisory Roles In A Potential Merger Involving Vodafone

Investment banks are reportedly scrambling to win advisory roles in a potential merger involving Vodafone Group Plc (LSE:VOD)’s Vodafone India Limited in India. BofA Merrill Lynch, UBS Group AG (SWX:UBSN) and Standard Chartered PLC (LSE:STAN) are among banks scrambling to win advisory roles in a potential merger involving Vodafone Group Plc (LSE:VOD)in India, sources said. The banks picked to advise on the deal could end up sharing as much as $40 million, according to Freeman Consulting. Vodafone Group is in talks with Merrill Lynch, UBS and Rothschild & Co SCA (ENXTPA:ROTH) for advisory roles, three sources with direct knowledge of the development, told Reuters. Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) has already been picked for the advisory role in the proposed merger, the sources added. Idea Cellular is likely to rope in StanChart and some Indian boutiques to work on the transaction, said the sources. They said the talks for hiring the advisers have not been completed and the list could change. Morgan Stanley, StanChart, UBS and Rothschild declined to comment, while BofA Merrill Lynch, Vodafone and Idea did not respond to a request for comment. The sources declined to be named as procedures related to the merger talks are not public.
