liberty global plc-a (LBTYA) Key Developments

Vodafone Is Urged To Offload Few Networks

Some of Britain’s biggest investors, with stakes in Vodafone Group Public Limited Company (LSE:VOD) worth billions of pounds, have told The Sunday Telegraph they would support a plan to offload networks in countries such as India, Turkey and South Africa to make a deal with John Malone possible. Two major Vodafone shareholders said they were backing the idea, and it is understood to be under active debate among several more of the company’s biggest investors, putting the board under growing pressure to respond. One shareholder said, “Nobody has ever doubted the strategic logic of a combination with Liberty, but now it looks like the stars are aligning. We’re very open to the combination and being open probably means selling off Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. It’s in the interests of both sets of shareholders to do the deal.” A deal could be complicated by German competition concerns because Vodafone is already the country’s top cable operator, with Liberty Global plc (NasdaqGS:LBTY.A) number two. It is understood that there are no active discussions between Vodafone and Liberty Global, and both investors cautioned against acting hastily. However, one shareholder said Malone’s comments were significant because previously overtures have come from the Vodafone side, fuelling fears it could overpay for Liberty and weighing on its share price. Separate sources familiar with the thinking of other major shareholders pointed out that splitting Vodafone could damage its business providing global corporate networks, which now accounts for more than a quarter of sales.

Liberty Global May Seek Acquisition Of Vodafone Group

Liberty Global plc (NasdaqGS:LBTY.A) may seek acquisition of Vodafone Group Public Limited Company (LSE:VOD). John Malone, Chairman of Liberty Global Plc, said “A tie-up with Vodafone Group Plc would be a great fit for his cable empire in western Europe.” “We’ve looked at that from our side and there would be very substantial synergies if we could find a way to work together or combine the companies with respect to western Europe,” John Malone said in a phone interview on May 19, 2015 from Colorado. Vittorio Colao, Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Group, said, “If we find things that make sense, whether it’s Liberty or Hellas Online or whatever, we will look and consider and if there aren’t, we continue with our organic strategy.” Vittorio Colao declined to comment whether there are ongoing discussions with Liberty Global Plc’s company. John Malone declined to comment on whether the companies are in discussions.
