Vodafone India now has 4G presence in 17 circles By Salman SH ( @Sallu_SH ) on January 19, 2017 Vodafone’s 4G network is now present in 17 telecom circles out of the 22 circles it operates in. The telco plans to launch 4G services in 2,400 towns by March 2017 using spectrum acquired during the 2016 auctions. The company claims that these 17 circles cover almost 91% of its overall data revenues. It recently launched 4G in Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Mizoram, and Odisha. The telco won 165.2 MHz spectrum under the 1800 MHz band (used for 4G), and 200 MHz of spectrum across both 2100 MHz and the 2500 MHz bands amounting to Rs 20,280 crore during last year’s auctions. Vodafone’s competitor Airtel has 4G presence in 21 circles, while Idea Cellular has 4G presence in 10 circles and plans to hit 17 circles by March 2017 using newly spectrum in 2016 auctions. Idea has also announced additional investment of Rs 100 crore for launching 4G in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. New entrant Reliance Jio has 4G presence in all of the 22 circles it operates in and acquired 269.2 MHz spectrum during last year’s auctions before its commercial launch in August. Vodafone is also betting on video streaming with its Vodafone Play service that aggregates over 150 live TV channels, movies, and TV show titles. The company had recently partnered with Eros Now for accessing its content library and removed subscription charges for the app last year. Interestingly Reliance Jio and Idea also has content distribution partnerships with Eros Now for their streaming platforms. hTtp://www.medianama.com/2017/01/223-vodafone-4g-coverage/

It will rise on 27 January and again on 2 February. A potential merger of Vodafone India Ltd. and Idea Cellular Ltd. would dethrone Bharti Airtel Ltd. in revenue market share and create a new leader in the Indian telecom landscape. hTtp://www.bloombergquint.com/markets/2017/01/19/idea-cellular-best-fit-for-vodafone-india-says-clsa

Vodafone hails solid European trading to offset tougher India 15 November 2016 07:46 (ShareCast News) - An encouraging performance in Germany and Italy lifted first-half trading at Vodafone slightly above the telecoms giant's expectations, offsetting a more competitive market in India. The dividend was lifted 1.9% to 4.74 eurocents as group revenue slipped 3.9% to €27.1bn in the six months ended 30 September, with organic service revenue up 2.3%. Organic service revenue growth accelerated in the second quarter to 2.4%, led by improvement in Europe to 1.0% from 0.3% in the first, while the Africa, Middle East, Asia, Pacific region grew 7.1%, down from 7.7% in the first three months of the year. For the first half, organic earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation growth of 4.3% to €7.9bn, with breakeven free cash flow reached thanks to lower capital additions and seasonal working capital outflows. At the statutory level, Vodafone fell to a €5.4bn pre-tax loss due to a €5bn non-cash impairment in India net of tax due to increased competition, where the company has looked to fight back by strengthening its commercial offers and buying in the recent spectrum auction in the more profitable areas of the country. Guidance for the full year was narrowed moderately, with management now predicting organic EBITDA growth of 3-6% to €15.7-16.1bn, with free cash flow of at least €4.0bn. "We have further improved our performance during the first half of the financial year with Europe modestly ahead of our expectations - led by Germany and Italy - and good execution in AMAP," said chief executive Vittorio Colao. He said the group's massive investment in its network and 'more-for-more' propositions have allowed it to capture opportunities from strong data demand, supporting European mobile contract ARPU and continued growth in emerging markets. "As Europe's fastest-growing broadband operator, we are driving rapid uptake of our consumer fixed and TV services while our wholly converged Enterprise business continues to outperform its peers. We are now translating faster revenue growth into margin expansion, supported by our focus on cost efficiency," he said. Also expanding is debt, which has risen to €40.7bn. Mostly positive reaction Investors were being pragmatic to concentrate on progress on pre-tax profits, operating cash flow and net debt, rather than negatives including weakness in handsets, FX, a doubling of the net loss and lower than hoped capital expenditure, said analyst Mike Van Dulken at Accendo Markets. A large impairment such as that taken in India is never nice, said George Salmon at Hargreaves Lansdown, especially it is in one of its key emerging markets. "The group's strategy is to focus on selling 'more for more', expanding its data packages, and increase the roll-out of fixed line broadband and TV services across Europe. With customers always on the look-out for the cheapest deal, Vodafone's strategy of bundling services together to reduce customer churn makes sense to us," he said. Having spent huge amounts on the infrastructure that allows for its broad 4G roll-out, Salmon said group debt will grow even further in the second half and now at close to three times what the group expects in earnings this year, "the pressure is on the group to pull-off its plans".

Directors dealings: Vodafone non-exec buys in ----------------------------------------------------------------- 8 December 2016 18:28 (ShareCast News) - Vodafone non-exec David Nish purchased 50,000 shares in Vodafone at an individual price of 197p, for a total consideration of £98,440. On 15 November, the telecommunications provider reported that an encouraging performance in Germany and Italy had lifted first-half trading to slightly above the company's expectations. Group revenue slipped 3.9% to €27.1bn over the six months ended 30 September, albeit with organic service revenue up 2.3% while the divided was hiked 1.9% to to 4.74 eurocents. Despite that, a little over a week later analysts at Macquarie trimmed their target price on the company's shares from 200p to 190p in order to reflect a weaker UK outlook. Of interest, the Australian broker added: "M&A with Virgin Media or Sky is inevitable in our view as it represents Vodafone's only structural solution."

Vodafone eyes larger synergies from Dutch joint venture 3 January 2017 07:13 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (ShareCast News) - Vodafone is due to receive a €0.6m cash payment after it tied up its VodafoneZiggo joint venture in the Netherlands with Virgin Media owner Liberty Global. As a result of the sale of Vodafone's lossmaking Thuis arm, VodafoneZiggo is predicted to reap around €3.5bn of efficiencies and synergies from the merger of both company's Dutch operations, though the amount that both sides will pay into the JV has increased to an estimated €211m from the previous €182m. This resulted from both parent companies agreeing to bump up the services they provided post completion "to ensure that VodafoneZiggo will benefit from the full scale and complementary expertise of each partner". The business, which will serve 7.1m homes, would for the twelve months ended September 30 have generated over €4bn of revenue. Vodafone's chief executive Vittorio Colao said: "The merged operation will be a stronger competitor in the Netherlands - one of our core European markets - and is a further example of Vodafone's ability to create value for its customers and shareholders through an effective market-by-market convergence strategy."

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn't it? If the price had tanked from 190p to 150p I'm sure someone would have known it was way overvalued at the former.
