Telefonica Said To Weigh IPO For U.K.'S O2 As Soon As 2017 End

Telefónica, S.A. (BME:TEF) is reportedly considering an initial public offering for O2 (Europe) Ltd. Telefonica is considering an initial public offering for its U.K. mobile-phone unit O2 as soon as the end of 2017, people familiar with the matter said. Telefonica has resumed work on the listing and could seek to sell a minority stake in the fourth quarter of 2017, depending on market conditions, the people said, asking not to be identified because the deliberations are private. No final decision has been made and Telefónica could postpone or cancel the plans or sell the holding to a bidder instead, sources said. A spokeswoman for Telefonica declined to comment.

O2 Mulls IPO

Mark Evans, O2 (Europe) Ltd.'s Chief Executive Officer, has been trimming costs recently to get the operator ready for a potential £10 billion stock market float this year, in which Telefónica, S.A. (BME:TEF) would sell a minority stake.

Telefonica May Open O2 IPO To Individual Investors

Telefónica, S.A. (BME:TEF) is likely set aside part of an initial public offering of O2 (Europe) Ltd. for individual investors instead of just institutional buyers, according to people familiar with the considerations, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan is private. This would be done to broaden the potential customer base for any sale. O2 Chief Executive Officer Mark Evans discussed such a sale with the Sunday Telegraph, saying there would be “reasonable demand” from the company’s 25 million customers.
