Update regarding Vodafone Italy

 

Vodafone Group Plc (“Vodafone”) notes recent media speculation and confirms it is in exclusive discussions with Swisscom AG (“Swisscom”) regarding a potential sale of Vodafone Italy to Swisscom for cash. 

 

Subject to confirming binding transaction documentation, the parties have agreed that Swisscom will acquire Vodafone Italy for an enterprise value of €8 billion on a debt and cash free basis and subject to customary closing adjustments. The enterprise value represents a multiple of c.26x consensus FY24F OpFCF1 and c.7.6x consensus FY24F Adjusted EBITDAaL1.

 

Vodafone has engaged extensively with several parties to explore market consolidation in Italy and believes this potential transaction delivers the best combination of value creation, upfront cash proceeds and transaction certainty for Vodafone shareholders. 

 

There can be no certainty that any transaction will ultimately be agreed. If required, a further announcement will be made when appropriate.

 

This communication contains inside information. This is a public announcement pursuant to Article 17 paragraph 1 of the European Market Abuse Regulation (596/2014), including as applied in the UK.
