The 1 year high share price is 214.60p while the 1 year low share price is currently 133.48p.
There are currently 26,715,060,473 shares in issue and the average daily traded volume is 55,000,687 shares. The market capitalisation of Vodafone Group is £37,801,810,569.30.
hades1: 28 January 2019 MATURING MANDATORY CONVERTIBLE BOND AND ASSOCIATED SHARE BUYBACK PROGRAMME In February 2016, Vodafone Group Plc ('Vodafone') issued a two-tranche mandatory convertible bond ('MCB'), the first tranche of which matured in August 2017 and the second tranche of which is due to mature in February 2019. As a result, Vodafone today announces it is to commence a new irrevocable and non-discretionary share buy-back programme (the 'Programme'). The sole purpose of this Programme is to reduce the issued share capital of Vodafone to avoid an increase in the issued share capital as a result of the maturing of the second tranche of the MCB. In order to satisfy the redemption of the second tranche of the MCB, a maximum of 799,067,756 shares will be issued on 25 February 2019 at a conversion price of £1.8021. This reflects the conversion price at issue (£2.1730) adjusted for the pound sterling equivalent of aggregate dividends paid in August 2016, February 2017, August 2017, February 2018, August 2018 and February 2019. As announced on 19 February 2016, when the MCB was issued Vodafone also entered into an accompanying option structure. This option structure will ensure that the total cash outflow to execute the Programme will be broadly equivalent to the £1.44 billion raised on issuing the second tranche of the MCB, regardless of any differential between the conversion price and the ordinary share price during the execution of the Programme. Therefore, the maximum pecuniary amount allocated to the Programme is £1.5 billion (taking into account money received or paid under this accompanying option structure). The Programme will be financed out of the proceeds from Vodafone's Verizon loan notes, which Vodafone received in two tranches as partial consideration for the sale of its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless in 2014. Vodafone received US$2.5 billion in cash in May 2018 following the redemption of the second tranche of these loan notes.
la forge: --Vodafone shares hit their lowest level since 2010 after the telecoms company reported a third-quarter revenue decline and warned the slump will continue into the fourth quarter. --Vodafone blamed price competition in Italy and Spain, as well as weak consumer spending in South Africa for the weaker revenue figure. --New Chief Executive Nick Read is under pressure to turnaround Vodafone's revenue and reduce its debt pile, in order to avoid cutting the dividend. By Adam Clark Vodafone Group PLC (VOD.LN) shares hit their lowest level for almost a decade on Friday, after new Chief Executive Nick Read failed to convince investors the telecommunications giant can arrest falling European revenue. London-based Vodafone said it generated revenue of 11 billion euros ($12.48 billion) in the quarter to Dec. 31, compared with EUR11.80 billion in the year-earlier period. Revenue was hit by accounting changes, the sale of its Qatari business and foreign exchange. Organic service revenue--a figure closely watched by analysts--rose 0.1% in the third quarter, Vodafone said. This represents a slowdown from the 0.5% increase posted for the three months to Sept. 30. Service revenue declined 1.1% in Europe on an organic basis to EUR7.50 billion. Vodafone's consumer businesses in Spain and Italy were hit by continuing price competition, while growth slowed in Germany. Earlier in January, Vodafone said it plans to cut up to 1,200 jobs in Spain, almost a quarter of its workforce. "Lower mobile contract churn across our markets and improved customer trends in Italy and Spain are encouraging. However, these have not yet translated into our financial results," Chief Executive Nick Read said. Mr. Read, who took over from long-serving head Vittorio Colao in October, told analysts that Vodafone's fourth-quarter looked set to be the trough of its European service revenue ahead of easier comparative periods in its new fiscal year. The prospect of further revenue decline spooked investors and Vodafone shares traded down over 4% by afternoon in the London session, hitting their lowest price since 2010. Organic growth also slowed in Vodafone's Rest of World segment, where a 4.9% increase fell short of the 7.7% achieved in the preceding quarter. Vodafone blamed lower data-revenue growth in South Africa amid a slowdown in consumer spending. Continued revenue decline has raised doubts over Vodafone's generous dividend payout, which now stands at 9% of its share price and has risen every year since 1990. Profits no longer fully cover the payout, which was frozen in November while Mr. Read tackles the company's EUR32.1 billion debt pile. Vodafone has options with its towers but also faces a threat from 5G spectrum," says RBC's Wilton Fry. "We regard the dividend as unsustainable even before we consider a macro downturn." Mr. Read has laid out plans to reduce operating costs by EUR1.2 billion by 2021. Earlier this week Vodafone struck a deal with Telefonica SA's (TEF.MC) O2 brand to share 5G, and potentially open the path to a sale of their joint-venture mobile mast business in the U.K. Vodafone maintained its guidance for underlying organic adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization--its preferred profit measure--to grow around 3% in the year ending March 31, and for free cash flow of around EUR5.4 billion. --Adria Calatayud contributed to this article.

florenceorbis: Https:// Does the Vodafone Group plc share price have investment appeal after today’s trading update? Can Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L) deliver improving share price performance? January 25, 2019 Robert Stephens Vodafone (LON:VOD) Vodafone share price Vodafone share price The Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L) share price is down 1% today after the company released a trading update for the quarter ended 31 December 2018. In my view, the company continues to make progress with the delivery of its strategy. It is moving towards a simpler operating model, while investing heavily in digital opportunities. Partnering is likely to become an area of increased interest for the business in future, as it aims to reduce costs and improve asset utilisation. During the quarter, the company’s revenue declined by €0.8 billion to €11 billion, while third quarter organic service revenue grew by 0.1%. The company’s performance in Europe was similar to the second quarter, with service revenues decreasing by 1.1%. There was, however, improving customer and financial trends in Italy, as well as robust retail growth in Germany. The company also experienced reduced churn in Spain, as well as a consistent performance in the UK. Vodafone’s Rest of World segment grew by 4.9%, with a decline in South Africa as a result of a weak economy being offset by strong performance in other markets. Mobile contract churn was reduced by 2 percentage points. As part of its increased focus on partnerships, the company intends to extend its existing UK network sharing agreement with Telefonica O2 to include 5G services. With Vodafone on track to meet guidance for the full year, I think its performance in the third quarter was relatively positive. Sure, there is a long way to go with the implementation of its refreshed strategy. But I think it could create a stronger and more efficient business which is better able to generate improving financial performance. Trading on a dividend yield of 8.8%, I think the stock offers a margin of safety. Therefore, I believe it has recovery potential over a long-term time period.
adrian j boris: Https:// Fears for Vodafone dividend after shares collapse as it grapples with £46bn debt pile By Matt Oliver For The Daily Mail Published: 21:51 GMT, 9 November 2018 | Updated: 21:51 GMT, 9 November 2018 Vodafone faces a battle to protect its £3.5billion dividend as it grapples with debts, costly network investments and price wars. The telecoms group is under pressure to spell out how it will maintain its payouts after launching a takeover of Liberty Global's European cable assets, a move that has taken its debt pile to around £46billion. It has also just spent £2.1billion buying airwaves for 5G services in Italy, in an auction that proved far more expensive than industry figures expected. Vodafone is under pressure to spell out how it will maintain its payouts after launching a takeover of Liberty Global's European cable assets +1 Vodafone is under pressure to spell out how it will maintain its payouts after launching a takeover of Liberty Global's European cable assets Analysts have raised doubts about its growth prospects, warning the company faces intense price competition in Italy, Spain and India. Since the start of the year, the share price plunged more than 38 per cent to nine-year lows, wiping £24billion off its value. Company veteran Nick Read, who took over from former boss Vittorio Colao last month, will present his first quarterly results as chief executive on Tuesday. He is expected to set out his vision for the group, including how it will take advantage of the Liberty Global deal, continue cutting costs and drum up cash from asset sales. One investor told the Mail there were questions over whether Vodafone would carry on paying its current dividend. However, talks with management about this had proved frustrating, the investor added. Vodafone veteran Nick Read will present his first quarterly results as chief exec on Tuesday Vodafone veteran Nick Read will present his first quarterly results as chief exec on Tuesday The Vodafone dividend has long made the company an attractive investment to British savers who have benefited from a steady income stream. Analysts have warned Vodafone faces difficult decisions if it wants to protect the dividend, which the company has not cut since first paying one in 1990. But in a note, JP Morgan argued a cut could make sense if the company wants to pay down debts quickly and asset sales and cost-cutting failed to raise enough cash. Russ Mould, investment director at broker AJ Bell, added: 'Concern about the dividend is one of the reasons Vodafone shares have been such a horror this year. The company is pointing to cash flow but what has got people spooked is the Liberty Global deal.' 'They are looking at it and saying 'You already had a lot of debt and that is now going to take it even higher, and at a time when general borrowing costs are going up not down'.' Speaking to investors in September, Read dismissed fears about the dividend and claimed the company had the cash flow to support it. He explained that Vodafone would aim to deliver a cash flow of nearly £15billion over three years, with around £10.5billion taken by dividend payments and £4.5billion left free to spend on airwaves needed for next-generation 5G mobile networks. However, the company says it only expects an annual spend of just over £1billion on 5G spectrum, or around £3.1billion over the period. Speaking in New York, Read told investors: 'We're confident in the dividend policy that we have and that remains the case. 'We did the Liberty Global transaction. Then we said we will de-lever over time, through two levers. One is the expansion of earnings; and the other one is disposal of assets.' He said assets that could be sold included the company's signal masts and towers. Shares closed 2.1 per cent, or 3.16p, lower at 143.92p.
careful: Why as the Vod share price collapsed.
eeza: As is the VOD share price.
diku: Now that VZ is back in US hands how easy is it for US brokers to manipulate weakness in Vod share price...get your traders to short the shares ahead of downgrade...then announce the downgrade...makes you wonder if FTSE shares are the easiest in the western world to short/long/manipulate hence FTSE lags it a basket case?...
garycook: Why the Vodafone share price and 7.6% dividend yield may make it the bargain of the FTSE 100 G A Chester | Sunday, 26th August, 2018 | More on: VOD Image source: Getty Images. The Vodafone (LSE: VOD) share price has performed poorly so far in 2018. It ended last year at 235p and has fallen a whopping 25%. I saw good value in the stock at 184p in early July. The forecast 12-month price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio was 18.4 and the prospective dividend yield was 7.1%. The shares have subsequently declined further to around 176p. The P/E has come down to 17.4 and the dividend yield has risen to 7.6%. Is Vodafone now even better value or has news since July dampened my enthusiasm for it? Sustainable dividend? Vodafone’s dividend has always been a big part of the total return equation for investors. The current yield is higher than it’s been for many years and this makes Vodafone a strong investment proposition — if the dividend is sustainable. Some commentators are concerned that Vodafone’s earnings haven’t been covering its dividend and that it may not be able to afford the payout in the future. However, I believe this concern is overdone. When it comes to assessing dividend affordability, accounting earnings can be less useful than free cash flow (FCF). This is the amount of cash a company has left over after paying all its operating expenses and maintenance capital expenditures. As the table below shows, while Vodafone’s accounting earnings aren’t covering its dividend, its FCF has increased to a much healthier level, both before the costs of spectrum acquisition (part maintenance and part growth capex) and after. 2016 2017 2018 Earnings (€bn) 1.83 2.25 3.22 FCF pre-spectrum (€bn) 1.27 4.06 5.42 FCF (€bn) (2.16) 3.32 4.04 Dividends (€bn) (4.19) (3.71) (3.92) As you can see, FCF for the financial year ended 31 March 2018 was well ahead of earnings and covered the dividend. It’s worth noting, incidentally, that while Vodafone’s P/E is relatively elevated, its P/FCF is more attractive. The company stated in its last annual report that investment in spectrum will be higher in the next two years. Nevertheless, on a longer view it said: “We expect that our FCF generation will — on average — continue to cover our dividend obligations.” And the board reiterated its intention to increase the dividend each year. Strong balance sheet Vodafone’s net debt at the last year-end was €31.5bn compared with shareholders’ equity of €67.6bn, giving gearing (net debt as a percentage of shareholders’ equity) of 47%. This level of gearing is relatively conservative. BT’s is 93% and a number of popular FTSE 100 dividend stocks have gearing of well over 100%. Vodafone’s strong balance sheet can comfortably accommodate its agreed €18bn deal to buy cable networks in Germany and eastern Europe owned by US firm Liberty Global. The acquisition, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to complete in mid-2019 and should be a further driver of future FCF and dividends. Bargain buy? Vodafone reported intense competition in India and increased competition in Italy and Spain in a Q1 trading update last month. However, challenging conditions in some markets are almost inevitable for an international behemoth. And with the board reiterating its outlook for the full-year, I didn’t see anything in the trading update to derail Vodafone’s near-term or longer-term prospects, or to suggest that the stock isn’t a bargain. Of course, there’s no saying whether it is the bargain of the FTSE 100 — there are other contenders — but I believe the stock has the potential to deliver a high total return for investors. As such, I rate it a ‘buy’.
clive7878: Surely VOD share price should be doing better than of late. Even Verison has done poorly.
woodhawk: I don't need to see an "attainment breakdown for the referendum voting results". I already know the overwhelming majority of Brexiteers were senile or thick, xenophobic morons. But what has that to do with the VOD share price?
