hares in infrastructure unit Vantage Towers at 24 euros each, valuing the firm at 12.1 billion euros ($14.5 billion) in one of Europe's largest initial public offerings this year, Vantage Towers said. Vodafone is reaping as much as 2.3 billion euros from the deal, assuming that an overallotment option (greenshoe) is fully exercised at the final offer price, Vantage Towers added. Trading is slated to start in Frankfurt on Thursday. The British-based operator had set the initial price range for the flotation of Vantage Towers at 22.50 to 29 euros per share, before narrowing that to 24-25 euros this week. It had targeted proceeds of 2-2.8 billion euros. "This IPO unlocks value for our shareholders: it demonstrates the value of our towers assets in a 5G world," Vodafone Chief Executive Nick Read said. Assuming the greenshoe will be fully exercised, Vodafone will continue to hold 81.1%. The deal adds to a strong pipeline of new listings this year including Polish e-commerce firm InPost, German used-car trading platform AUTO1, British footwear brand Dr. Martens and food delivery firm Deliveroo. Telecom towers have become the target of several big deals as Spain's Cellnex and U.S.-based American Tower Corp race to increase their European footprint, eyeing the roll-out of next-generation 5G technology. Upgrading networks, including towers, for 5G - which promises an age of self-driving cars and brain surgery performed at a distance - will soak up some $890 billion between 2020 and 2025, the GSMA industry body says. European operators are increasingly willing to exploit assets to help finance those build-outs. While selling towers outright brings piles of cash, many are also looking to create separate tower units or launch joint ventures with independent companies as a way to keep a chunk of potential future growth.

Vodafone tightens price before Vantage Towers listing Alex Ralph Wednesday March 17 2021, 12.01am, The Times The telecoms group’s towers infrastructure business will be listed in Frankfurt tomorrow Vodafone has narrowed the price range of Vantage Towers, its European infrastructure company, towards the bottom half of its initial valuation target before tomorrow’s initial public offering. The range has been revised to €24 to €25 per share from a broader €22.50 to €29 range set last week and the book has been covered in preparation for the listing on Frankfurt’s stock exchange. It means that Vantage Towers is set to have a market valuation of between €12.2 billion and €12.7 billion and a slightly lower multiple than listed European rivals such as Cellnex, the acquisitive Spanish company, and Inwit in Italy. Vodafone said last week that it was seeking to raise up to €2.8 billion from the flotation. spud

Mobile firms spend more than £1.3 billion in latest 5G spectrum auction 17 March 2021, 09:14 5G rollout 5G rollout. Picture: PA EE, O2, Three and Vodafone have completed the principal stage of an auction of airwaves to support new 5G services. The UK’s biggest mobile operators have committed to pay more than £1.3 billion in the first stage of latest bidding for airwaves for 5G networks. EE, O2, Three and Vodafone took part in the auction, run by telecoms regulator Ofcom as they looked to boost their current mobile services and support new 5G networks. The first stage of the auction involved 34 lots of spectrum being made available across the two bands. The 700 MHz band is suited for providing wide-area coverage, for example in the countryside, and the 3.6-3.8 GHz band are important airwaves for 5G and more data-hungry connections. In the first round of the latest auction, EE picked up 40 MHz of spectrum in the 700 MHz band at a cost of £284 million, and a further 40MHz in the 3.6-3.8 GHz band at a cost of £168 million; Three won 20 MHz in the 700 MHz band for £280 million; O2 won 20 MHz in the 700 MHz band for £280 million and 40MHz in the 3.6-3.8 GHz band for £168 million; while Vodafone secured 40 MHz in the 3.6-3.8 GHz band for £176.4 million. The total secured, just over £1.35 billion, will all be paid to the Treasury. Ofcom will now move to the “assignment221; stage, which is the last bidding stage of the auction. This allows companies that have won spectrum in the first stage to bid to determine where in the frequency bands their new spectrum will be located. Philip Marnick, group director for spectrum at Ofcom, said: “With bidding in the principal stage concluded, we now move to the next stage of the auction where the operators will have an opportunity to negotiate the position of their spectrum holdings in the wider band. “This is an important step forward in bringing better mobile services to people – wherever they live, work and travel. These airwaves will help improve coverage for the mobile services people use today, as well as supporting the UK’s position as a world leader in 5G.” By Press Association

Surprised there is no RNS this morning. BT announced their spectrum purchase, seems that cost didn’t get out of hand like the analyst was predicting a few posts ago.

PRESS: Vodafone's Vantage Towers narrows IPO price range to lower end Wed, 17th Mar 2021 06:50 Alliance News (Alliance News) - Vodafone Group PLC's mobile towers business has narrowed the price range for its stock market listing in Frankfurt to the lower half of its original target, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday. Vantage Towers AG has revised the range for the initial public offering to between EUR24 and EUR25 per share from the original EUR22.50 to EUR29, Bloomberg said, citing deal terms it has seen. Https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-16/vodafone-unit-vantage-tightens-price-range-for-frankfurt-listing?srnd=deals At the EUR22.50 to EUR29.00 price range set last week, Vantage Towers would have a market capitalisation of between EUR11.4 billion and EUR14.7 billion, Vodafone had said. The base offer size will be EUR2.0 billion, though Vodafone said there is flexibility to up this to EUR2.8 billion. The offer period was set to end around Wednesday this week. Dusseldorf, Germany-headquartered Vantage Towers, which Vodafone separated out from its business in 2020, is "Europe's leading tower infrastructure platform", according to Vodafone, with more than 68,000 towers across nine markets.

Hi spud, As you are a very prolific poster on here, can I ask how much you have invested in vod ? Ok none of my business perhaps, But just thought I would ask? I assume you don't actually write all your posts by hand ? just lift them?? I gather you are generally positive about vod?? Good luck to all you vod share holders. The vantage towers is very good news I think. I am looking to top up in April for a new I.S.A. year, so part of me wants the share price not to rise too much??!!

MasMovil, Vodafone merger talk refuses to die http://telecoms.com/508971/masmovil-vodafone-merger-talk-refuses-to-die/ MasMovil has reopened discussions with Vodafone about a possible merger of their Spanish businesses, according to local press reports. You could be forgiven for getting a feeling of déjà vu: MasMovil denied a similar report in September last year and that was far from the first time the telco had been linked with a major merger in Spain. It has, of course, been a big player in M&A in recent years, building up its own business through the acquisition of a number of smaller market players, including Lycamobile, Lebara, Llamaya and others. But talk of a tie-up with one of the big three just will not die, and once again it is Vodafone in the frame. The latest report comes from Spanish newspaper Expansion, which said the parties are aiming to reach agreement before the country’s upcoming auction of 700 MHz spectrum, due to take place imminently. It’s not clear who would be buying whom in this scenario, but according to Spanish tech publication Xataka, MasMovil has valued Vodafone Spain at €7.5 billion. That’s higher than the €6 billion it valued the business at previously and is possibly the driving force behind the reopening of discussions between the operators. There is also the question of the 700-MHz sale. Inking a deal prior to the auction would make a difference, putting the companies in a better position for the auction. The auction is due to take place before the end of this quarter, which essentially means in the next three weeks, having been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, there are now rumours that it will be delayed again, this time until June, which would give Vodafone and MasMovil a little more breathing space to hammer out a deal…if it is indeed their goal to do so ahead of the sale. As we might have expected, neither company has commented on the report. We can be pretty sure that one of two things will happen though: either MasMovil and Vodafone will announce a merger deal, or there will be a brief period of quiet before the Spanish press once again publishes rumours of upcoming mobile consolidation. spud

Which stocks will come out on top with the 5G airwave battle? by Graeme Evans from interactive investor | 11th March 2021 15:47 Share on: An Ofcom auction starting tomorrow will fire the starting gun on a major infrastructure upgrade. 5G 600x400 A battle for 5G airwaves gets under way tomorrow when BT (LSE:BT.A) and Vodafone (LSE:VOD) join rivals Three and O2 in bidding to secure the bandwidth needed for better and faster mobile services. The Ofcom auction process is likely to take several weeks to complete, with the four companies able to bid for 5G spectrum across two different frequency bands. A previous 5G auction in 2018 raised £1.4 billion, double the amount that City analysts had expected. UBS analyst Polo Tang warns an expensive auction will be unhelpful for investor sentiment on all the UK mobile network operators, with EE owner BT having the highest relative exposure. The FTSE 100 company's cash-generating qualities once made it appealing to income-seeking investors, but this has since been undone by the pandemic and the need to prioritise modernisation of its network and tackle its pensions deficit. Based on earlier spectrum auctions in Europe, Tang estimates that total proceeds from the UK process could be in the region of £3.6 billion, with BT paying £1 billion — more than the current City consensus for around £740 million. BT shares were today 1.35p lower at 135.75p, compared with 97p in November and Tang's 111p target price. The stock bounced as much as 7% after the Budget's two-year tax break on capital investment provided a potential boost for its full-fibre broadband roll-out. Vodafone confirms massive IPO and big dividend Shares round-up: Spirent Communications, Marshalls Are you saving enough for retirement? Our calculator can help you find out The Ofcom auction will increase the total amount of spectrum available for mobile technology in the UK by nearly a fifth. Any device that communicates wirelessly needs spectrum – such as televisions, car key fobs, baby monitors, wireless microphones and satellites. Ofcom is releasing 80 MHz of spectrum in the 700 MHz band, following a four-year programme to clear the band of its existing uses for digital terrestrial TV and wireless microphones. These airwaves are ideal for providing good-quality mobile coverage, both indoors and across very wide areas – including the countryside. Releasing these airwaves will also boost the capacity of today’s mobile networks and offer customers a more reliable service. There is also 120 MHz of spectrum in the 3.6-3.8 GHz band. These airwaves are part of the primary band for 5G and capable of carrying lots of data-hungry connections. All four of the biggest mobile operators have launched 5G in the last year and releasing these airwaves will help increase the capacity and quality of mobile data services. The bidding had been due to start in January but was put back to Friday due to the pandemic and after some mobile operators argued for the spectrum to be allocated through an administrative process rather than an open auction. Ofcom has imposed a 37% cap on overall spectrum holdings, limiting the amount that individuals companies can bid for. The process also involves Three owner Hutchison 3G and O2 owner Telefonica (NYSE:TEF). These articles are provided for information purposes only.

Liberty: VodafoneZiggo tower sale is ‘work-in-progress’ http://www.telcotitans.com/vodafonewatch/liberty-vodafoneziggo-tower-sale-is-work-in-progress/2934.article Mike Fries, Chief Executive of Liberty Global, indicated he remained open to the possibility of a sale of tower infrastructure by Dutch joint venture VodafoneZiggo, suggesting co‑parent Vodafone could have some more cash in the attic once it is done with its impending flotation of European venture Vantage Towers. Speaking during Deutsche Bank’s Media, Internet & Telecom Conference this week, Fries drew attention to the “real value” contained in VodafoneZiggo’s network of about 3,000 sites — plus a similarly sized portfolio of Belgian business Telenet — but argued that this was not being adequately recognised by stock traders. Together, Fries suggested (via CQ FD Disclosure) the two sets of assets amounted to “probably €1.5bn [£1.3bn]–€2bn of value”. “ How will we monetise it? When will we monetise it? When does it make sense for the OpCos? That’s all work-in-progress. But it’s there… I’m sure nobody is putting any value on it as an asset that could create real upside for us down the road. And we do have options and rights, so let’s see what unfolds. But infrastructure has real value in Europe, in particular… ” Vodafone has not firmed up a public position on the VfZ tower portfolio but has shown interest in drawing value out of the assets. During 2019, the Group stated it was “exploring network‑sharing [and] tower options” in the Netherlands, while the JV itself flagged it was intending to identify “potential monetisation opportunities for our mobile towers portfolio”. However, the Dutch JV’s assets did not end up forming part of Vantage Towers’ startup portfolio — which was brought together for the new business’ launch in 2020 and is set to be part-‘monetised’ through a flotation later this month. Recent weeks have seen more of a spotlight being shone onto the future of VfZ’s towers by wider moves around wireless infrastructure in the Netherlands, including the publication of new network-sharing guidelines by the country’s Authority for Consumers & Markets and Deutsche Telekom and Cellnex’s recent agreement to meld their local mast estates. There has also been increasing focus on the future of the overall Liberty–Vodafone relationship in the country, with both private and public sale options now having opened up under the VfZ shareholder agreement, and Liberty recently raising the possibility of a listing of the business within the next two years. spud
