Way undervalued. AS Warren Buffet put it, 'Price is what you pay...value is what you get'.

Evident green shoots of recovery. Ship has been turned by MDV. T'was never going to be a quick fix. A Great investment opportunity over the next two to three years. Interest rates appear to have peaked. See share price recovering by at least 15 per cent annually plus dividend. In addition, at current share price levels the company could well be in the sights of the asset I wouldn't rule out corporate activity...there is still value in the Vodafone brand.

She's the driving force behind all that goes on at VOD. Each announcement results in a share price fall. Redundancies, collaborations, sales of parts of the business, initial reaction positive and then the share price drops. She awards herself £6m in bonus shares at just 77p. Share price drops again. Hence repeating theme comment.

The shares are down 20.4% since she took up the CEO position in April.

Big upside seen for this fallen FTSE 100 giant

Vodafone shares continue to struggle, but for one City bank there’s reason for optimism after calling a big upturn for the high-yielding stock.

24th October 2023 13:29

by Graeme Evans from interactive investor

The “prodigious221; valuation gap between Vodafone Group and its peers has been backed to close after a City bank said improving trends justified a new 165p target price.

The optimism at Deutsche Bank comes with Vodafone shares languishing in the 70p-80p range after another summer of frustration for long-suffering investors.

The bank believes that Vodafone's run of “unfortunate” events is nearing its end, with positive ones taking their place. It notes the drag from energy prices should normalise and then reverse by 2025, with emerging market currency pressures showing signs of easing.

The jettisoning of weaker assets, possibly including operations in Spain, and prospect of consolidation in the UK after this year’s Three merger deal should also benefit the top line.

Deutsche Bank said: “Vodafone is becoming easier to break out into its parts, revealing a prodigious under-valuation versus peers, which admittedly have less cable.”

The bank, which lifted its price target by 10p in today’s note, adds that disposals of weaker assets would do much to highlight this anomaly but only if proceeds are used diligently to boost dividend cover and free cash flow.

Other analysts are more cautious on prospects as JPMorgan yesterday trimmed its price target to 92p, with Barclays recently highlighting a figure of 95p.

Shares are down by around 40% since last summer as competition intensifies, leaving the London market’s one-time largest stock trading at its lowest level in 25 years.

The selling has continued even though new boss Margherita Della Valle has vowed to accelerate change, including by simplifying the organisation, cutting out complexity and taking steps to regain the company’s competitive standing.

The turnaround potential of a former FTSE 100 giant has tempted plenty of retail investors, with shares among the five most-bought on our platform in the third quarter of 2023.

New buyers have been attracted by a dividend yield now above 10%, although such a lofty level comes with a health warning over the potential for the payout to be cut.

The total dividend was an unchanged nine euro cents a share in May’s annual results, only just covered by earnings of 11.45 euro cents for the year to 31 March.

The next landmark for Vodafone investors will be half-year results on 14 November, when the City will be looking for updates on M&A activity and signs that operational trends are improving. The largest unit of Germany, which accounts for 30% of revenues, will be a particular focus after recent price rises.

Deutsche Bank is forecasting service revenues growth across the group will improve to 2.2% in the second quarter from 1.8% in the opening three months of the financial year.

This summer’s deal with the owner of Three, which is subject to regulatory approval, will combine the third and fourth-largest network operators in the UK in a move that creates the scale needed to invest in network and 5G expansion.

The VOD share price will recover in time. Anyone getting on board at the current level will do very nicely. For those of us who have been here for years, our patience will be rewarded eventually and the dividends ease the pain whilst we wait. VOD revenues are strong, debt is reducing year-on-year, there are plans to address underperforming markets and mergers are highly likely. Sentiment, not fundamentals, is driving the market cap to be less than a year ago. That can change very quickly.

Someone was commenting recently that they wanted the share price down by Friday, so that when their dividend is reinvested it results in more shares purchased.

Given that the award appears to have been cash based (eg, Ms Fail receiving £6.25m worth) then the board had an incentive to see the shares as low as possible prior to the award.

Their ultimate reward will thus be greater the weaker the initial share price, effectively a reward for incompetently managing the share price

In the real world we'd call it corrupt. In the world of directorships it's a Brucie Bonus...

Bloomberg says private equity players could bid for Vodafone Spain
Annie Turner

28 July 2023

The Spanish opco is valued at €4 billion, despite its struggles and losing out on MásMóvil merger to Orange Spain

Days ago, Vodafone Group’s CEO, Margherita Della Valle, saying that its Spanish operations needed “structural change” and that Vodafone is considering “a range of options”. Vodafone is the third-largest operator in Spain.

Private equity interest

Now Bloomberg reports a group of private equity firms – Warburg Pincus, Carlyle Group and Apollo Global Management – could be interested in bidding for the Spanish opco, according to Bloomberg. Despite its travails, Vodafone’s Spanish unit is valued at around €4 billion.

In April, Bloomberg reported Vodafone Spain was ‘trailing a coat’, that is looking to attract buyers, although no formal sales process was in place. It reported that Apollo Global management was potentially interested.

Della Valle made the comments about the Spanish opco earlier this week at its Q1 earnings report. While the decline in the service revenues in Spain fell 3.0% to €965 million, down from a decline of 3.7% in the previous quarter, this appears in part to be down to price increases as it lost both mobile and fixed customers.

Della Valle said a strategic review of Spain, begun in May, had borne some fruit but clearly not enough in her view.

History of struggle

Vodafone has been struggling in the Spanish market for a considerable time. It had explored a merger with MásMóvil, the country’s fourth-largest telco which is backed by private equity.

After months of speculation, Orange Spain suddenly announced it would be the senior partner in a merger with MásMóvil. The proposed deal is undergoing scrutiny by the European Commission which is concerned that the tie-up with Orange might be anti-competitive. Orange is the country’s second-largest operator behind leader Telefónica.

There is speculation that should the European Commission block Orange’s deal with MásMóvil, a tie-up with Vodafone could be back in the frame. But mills of the Commission grind slowly and it seems Vodafone is looking for a speedier solution to its Spanish situation.

In the meantime, Spain is the third country in Vodafone’s planned pan-European roll out of MEC via AWS Wavelength.

Vodafone shares hit six-week high after Q1 results

There should be enough going on at the mobile phone giant to generate interest in its underperforming shares, but the company has a mountain to climb. Our head of markets analyses its position.

The announcement of a mega-merger and fresh blood in the boardroom would normally be enough to light a fire under a share price, but Vodafone Group investors are taking an understandable wait and see approach.

The merger with Three UK is expected to close by the end of next year and is subject to regulatory approval, which could yet prove to be more of a hurdle than Vodafone is suggesting. If passed, however, expected annual cost savings of £700 million by year five clearly underline the attraction of the deal, notwithstanding the likely £500 million of integration costs leading up to that point.

In the meantime, the group is well aware that it has a mountain to climb. Higher energy costs in the background have not helped, while a deteriorating performance in Germany, which accounts for around 26% of revenues, has been seen amid intense competition and new legislation in the pipeline.

The decline in revenues of 1.3% for the last three months is an improvement from the 2.8% drop reported in the previous quarter and was largely driven by price increases in the broadband service, although this has inevitably come at the cost of losing some cost-conscious customers.

Elsewhere in Europe, performance has been mixed, with similar pressures to the German experience weighing in markets such as Spain and Italy. The UK fared rather better, reporting a service revenue increase of 5.7% compared to 3.8% the previous quarter, while 42,000 broadband customers were added, taking the existing total of customers to 1.3 million.

From a group perspective, a reported revenue decline of 4.8% in the first quarter masked organic growth of 3.7%, where the African business continues to make a notable contribution. Vodacom revenues grew by 9% over the quarter from a previous 7%, with South Africa and Egypt being beacons of light. Indeed, there are some exciting growth opportunities in Africa (it now has 73.5 million financial services customers) and more broadly its multi-play offering (TV, broadband, fixed line) often results in “stickier̶1; customers when they have chosen the bundle.

Guidance for the year is unchanged and the accompanying management comments recognise the scale of the challenges to come, while the performance of the Business segment and certain geographical regions provide some grounds for optimism.

In the meantime, net debt remains something of a concern to investors, although the group is reportedly comfortable with the current levels. The dividend yield of 10.6%, partly the result of a declining share price, is of scant solace to long-suffering investors, even if the yield of itself is extremely punchy.

The shares have reacted positively at the market open on Monday to the glimmers of hope which have been reported, but there remains a significant amount of ground to make up.

Over the last year, the shares have dropped by 43%, as compared to a gain of 5.3% for the wider FTSE100 index, while over the last five years the price has plunged by 59%. Investors will be hoping that the positive noises emanating from the group prove to be the thin end of the wedge, but in the meantime the jury remains out, with the market consensus of the shares as a 'hold' likely to remain intact.

If only we understood what news is good for VOD share price...

UAE telecom is the frontrunner if they choose to buy Vod. They already own 15%. If you listened to the investor relations conference call a few weeks ago when asked about UAE telecom Vod investor relations talked about synergies which could be created by exchanging expertise. However, if you look at their faces, it was clear at least to me, they were very concerned about a full takeover. Their body language said enough as they seemed uneasy.

Any telecom company interested in European exposure from China Telecom, I know not politically feasible, to any of the US baby bells ATT included, to Liberty Global or a private hedge fund. A private hedge fund could easily take out Vod since the market cap is around 24 billion dollars these days.

What it comes down is price. Vod fair value is anywhere from $15 to $25 US dollars. I estimate book value at $25 per share. However, I do not believe it would be sold for so little. If Vod sold off its assets it could reap anywhere from %47 billion to $60 billion dollars. So I would think the takeout price would be much higher than fair market value.

In any event, there seems to be a lot of money for shareholders if the MDV rights the ship. Encouraging is the fact that Spanish assets may enter into a joint venture or be sold off by September. Also UAE telecom and Vod operations in Africa are very complimentary and cover much of the continent. If they combine African assets there is a potential for 450 million customers with mobile banking included.

By selling off the least of their profit making or losing assets they could raise 10 to 15 billion dollars.

They could also sell off move of Vantage Towers.

So in my mind debt is not a major issue.

There are a lot of moving parts at Vod. Let's hope they move fast.
