spud: The Supreme Court’s Friday verdict may make fundraising an uphill task for Vodafone. Voda Group, Aditya Birla may dilute their stake in Voda Idea. https://www.hindustantimes.com/business/voda-group-aditya-birla-may-dilute-their-stake-in-voda-idea-101627245530040.html Vodafone Idea’s UK parent owns a 45% stake in the company, and the Indian promoter group, which includes Kumar Mangalam Birla and Aditya Birla Group firms, holds a 26% stake. By Anirudh Laskar, Hindustan Times, New Delhi UPDATED ON JUL 26, 2021 04:56 AM IST Vodafone Group Plc and Aditya Birla Group may cede control of Vodafone Idea Ltd (VIL) if a strategic investor wants to take control of the telco, two people directly aware of the internal discussions said. The development marks new thinking on the part of Vodafone Idea’s promoters, who were initially looking to bring in financial investors but have not been successful in raising the required funds, putting a question mark on the telco’s survival, the people cited above said, requesting anonymity. “The initial plan was to get an investor in and, alongside, the two promoters would have invested some more equity; but that plan has not worked out so far,” said one of the two people cited above. The two promoter groups are in talks with at least five investors, both strategic and financial, including three US-based funds, to sell a combination of Vodafone Idea shares and convertibles to be able to raise money for the cash-starved telco, repay government and bank dues, the people said. Vodafone Idea’s UK parent owns a 45% stake in the company, and the Indian promoter group, which includes Kumar Mangalam Birla and Aditya Birla Group firms, holds a 26% stake. “The two promoter groups are open to the option of doing away with a majority stake or transfer control,” said the first person, adding that this option will be considered only if the foreign entities agree to pay a premium to the prevailing market price of Vodafone Idea so that the company gets enough funding to take care of the telco’s ballooning dues. Vodafone Idea’s current market value is ₹24,000 crore, and if an equity deal of $2 billion ( ₹15,000 crore) happens at the current stock price, the promoter holding will get diluted by 62.5%, which means Vodafone Group’s holding will come down to around 28% and Aditya Birla group’s holding will be lowered to around 16.25%. Vodafone Idea’s stock hit the lower circuit twice on Friday after the Supreme Court dismissed the telco’s plea to allow payment of self-assessed AGR dues that are way lower than the one demanded by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT). The shares fell 10% to ₹8.36 on BSE. The telco desperately needs to raise capital to deal with its liabilities of ₹1.8 lakh crore. The government has demanded ₹58,254 crore as AGR dues from Vodafone idea, while the company has self-assessed this at ₹21,533 crore. Vodafone has so far paid only ₹7,854 crore. The Supreme Court’s Friday verdict may make fundraising an uphill task for Vodafone Idea. Emails sent to Vodafone Plc, Vodafone Idea and Aditya Birla Group remained unanswered. Multiple messages sent to the AB Group did not elicit any response. spud

spud: Vodafone Q1 preview: where next for Vodafone shares? JOSHUA WARNER July 21, 2021 10:37 AM https://www.cityindex.co.uk/market-analysis/where-next-for-vodafone-shares-ahead-of-its-q1-results/ Vodafone is expected to see top-line growth accelerate in the first quarter of its new financial year and brokers are bullish on the telecom giant’s recovery prospects going forward. We explain what to expect from the results this week and consider where Vodafone shares are headed. When will Vodafone release Q1 earnings? Vodafone is scheduled to release first-quarter results on the morning of Friday July 23. This will cover its performance over the three months to the end of June. What to expect from the Vodafone results Vodafone’s quarterly updates focus exclusively on top-line numbers. Analysts are expecting total revenue to rise 1.5% to EUR10.66 billion from EUR10.50 billion the year before. Vodafone surprised the markets when it posted 0.8% organic service revenue growth in the final quarter of the last financial year, beating the 0.4% expected by analysts. Notably, the consensus anticipates growth will accelerate markedly to 1.9% in the first quarter. That will be flattered as Vodafone starts to come up against weaker comparatives from when results started to be hit by the pandemic, but it will be a welcome acceleration nonetheless. Germany, by far Vodafone’s biggest market, returned to delivering organic service revenue growth in the second-half of the last financial year, exiting with 1.2% growth in the fourth-quarter, while continuing to decline in the UK, Italy and Spain. Investors will want to see growth in Germany accelerate and for a continued recovery in its three other core markets in the first quarter. Watch for any changes to Vodafone’s outlook for the full year. The company is currently aiming to deliver adjusted Ebitda (which will be reported as ‘EBITDAaL’) of EUR15.0 to EUR15.4 billion and adjusted free cashflow of at least EUR5.2 billion. That can be compared to the adjusted Ebitda of EUR14.88 billion and EUR5.7 billion in cashflow delivered in the last financial year. Notably, Vodafone shares have shed over 19% in value since it released its full-year results, spurred lower as earnings came in at the bottom-end of expectations and because markets were disappointed by its cashflow target after Vodafone said it was raising the amount it was spending on investment. Vodafone shares still trade some 26% lower than pre-pandemic levels. Still, brokers believe Vodafone can not only recover all those losses but go on to hit levels not seen since 2018 with an average target price of 169.28 pence – implying over 47% potential upside from the current share price. The 24 brokers covering Vodafone have an average Buy rating on the stock, with 10 rating Strong Buy, 12 Buy and two at Sell. The recovery prospects are underpinned by the reopening of the European economy. Lockdowns have meant people have used less mobile data and the lack of travel has meant less income from allowing tourists to piggyback of its network whilst travelling in Europe has also fallen. Handset sales have also been hit, but this is also being caused by customers delaying purchases to await a worthwhile model to upgrade to. Wholesale revenue also fell as other telecoms providers that use Vodafone’s network suffered similar problems. The majority of these headwinds should ease as Europe reopens, although this looks likely to vary wildly country-by-country. Plus, investors will hope a recovery can finally start to unleash the benefits from the acquisition of Liberty Global, with the tailwinds seen last year being wiped out by the impact of the pandemic. Where next for the Vodafone share price? Vodafone has been trending lower since June 2015 when the stock price formed a high of 258.00. In late February 2020, VOD moved aggressively lower to 92.76 as the pandemic stuck. Price bounced to horizontal resistance near 142.68 and began coiling in a symmetrical triangle. The stock price briefly broke above the downward sloping trendline on the triangle in May, only to be rejected by the horizontal resistance at 142.68 once again and pushed back into the triangle. As is often the case, when a price fails to breakout of one side of a pattern, it moves to test the other side. Expectations for a symmetrical triangle are that price will break out in the same direction as when price entered the triangle. In this case, that would be lower. First support is near 111.25, near current levels. If price breaks below the triangle, there is horizontal support near 103.88, just ahead of the February 2020 lows at 92.76. If price holds the trendline and moves higher, Horizontal resistance is at 125.64. The top, downward sloping trendline of the triangle crosses near 135.00. spud

estienne: Vodafone Offers An Attractive Entry Point Jul. 14, 2021 2:56 PM ETVodafone Group Plc (VOD)12 Comments14 Likes Summary A 17% drop in the share price over the past eight weeks is unjustified and offers an attractive entry point. The company's financial performance throughout the pandemic has been solid, and the 6.5% dividend yield is safe. The company's management have been making the right calls and are navigating the ship with prudence. Vodafone office building in Eschborn, Germany AM-C/iStock Unreleased via Getty Images Following the 17% drop in the share price of Vodafone since early May, investors can find an attractive entry point. The last time the share price was that low was in November 2020 - before the big hike in European shares started to happen. Today, the shares are trading at very attractive levels, and investors should pay close attention to this compelling opportunity. Why did the slide start? Vodafone's (VOD) shares started sliding since the company announced its full year numbers on the 18th of May 2021. The company's financial year ends in March, meaning it captured the full impact of the Covid-19 lockdowns more than other companies in its full year numbers, given that calendar Q1 of 2021 witnessed severe lockdowns across much of Europe due to a spike in infections while the vaccines were starting to be rolled out. The main trigger of the southward slide of Vodafone's shares was the hit to its free cash flow generation that resulted from an acceleration of capital expenditures. Management sees these capex investments as necessary and that they will pay off in making Vodafone's network and service more efficient and competitive. Fundamental analysis is reassuring Vodafone's financial performance has been compelling, and the company has been a bedrock for investors during the pandemic. In the financial year ending 31 March 2021, service revenues were stable at EUR 37 billion, while EBITDA margin dropped by a fraction to reach 32.8%. Not bad in an end-to-end pandemic year. Net free cash flow witnessed the big drop from EUR 4.9 billion to EUR 3.1 billion, as capital expenditures accelerated, but still comfortably covering the dividend payment of EUR 2.6 billion. The company reiterated several times during the annual results publication that they will maintain a minimum of 9 cents per share as the dividend in the medium term, implying that although investors are not likely to experience much of an increase in the dividend, the 9 cents are expected to be set in stone. Given the current dividend yield is around 6.5%, income-seeking investors can be satisfied with that high return flowing into their pockets in the foreseeable future. (Vodafone's Full Year Presentation) Valuation is compelling Following the 17% slide since early May, Vodafone is now trading at 1.9x market cap to operating cash flow - below most European peers. Dutch telecom company KPN is trading at 5.5x the comparable ratio, Norwegian Telecom company Telenor is at 4.5x, and UK peer BT is at 3.2x. The current valuation of Vantage Towers leaves Vodafone's valuation even more compelling. The current market cap values the masts business at EUR 15 billion out of a total valuation of EUR 33 billion for Vodafone. A simple subtraction means the rest of Vodafone's business - ex-Vantage Towers - is valued at EUR 18 billion. Vantage Towers' current valuation is an astronomical P/E of 60 times, and market cap to operating cash flow of a similar parameter. This leaves Vodafone's valuation, excluding Vantage Towers, at a market cap to operating cash flow of 1x. If that is not a bargain, I do not know what is. Technical analysis levels support the thesis Although I mainly focus on fundamental analysis, a look at some technical indicators does not hurt in giving visibility on entry points. From the technical analysis perspective, there seems to be also compelling evidence that Vodafone's share price can be bottoming out. The RSI indicator on a 1-day interval starting ticking above the oversold 30 level, indicating the stock was oversold and that the share price is starting to recover. The Stochastic indicator is showing the same, also ticking above the oversold 20 level. The 1-day Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is indicating that the share price could have bottomed after weeks of selling, and that the direction is starting to reverse upwards. The share price is trading above the pivot point, and comfortably about recently established support levels, also indicating a bullish sentiment could be developing. Management has been proactive and disciplined Following the years of hype of IT and telecoms in the late 1990s and early 2000s, management of Vodafone has been largely conservative and disciplined over the past decade. With its former CFO, Nick Reed, on the helm, financial and investment decisions seem to have been more fine-tuned. The group avoided many of the pitfalls and misguided ambitions that turned into unfortunate adventures for many of Vodafone's peers. First, Vodafone focused on its core business of being a telecom operator and resisted the false dreams of being also a content provider as AT&T and Verizon in the US. Both AT&T and Verizon threw the towel recently on their content adventures by disposing or winding down their content assets, only a few years after massive spending of shareholders' money and accumulation of mountains of debt for these rash investments. Other peers have looked to emerging markets for achieving growth and escaping tough competition in developed markets, and many have been burned in the process. Norway's Telenor, Spain's Telefonica and France's Orange all ventured heavily into tough emerging markets and have suffered from typical emerging markets downsides; weakening local currencies, political and economic instability, and regulatory surprises. Vodafone's expansion into emerging markets has been measured, and only India was the failed adventure due to a combination of irrational market dumping-based competition and deadly regulatory clampdown. Vodacom, Vodafone's Africa venture, has been a solid and main contributor to both revenue growth and profitability generation - contributing 10% of revenues, contributing 11% and 13% of revenues and EBITDA, respectively, in the financial year ending 31 March 2021. (Vodafone's Full Year Presentation) Vodafone's divestments have also been well-measured, well-executed, profitable and timely. The company make a huge profit out of disposing of its 45% Verizon stake in 2014, and executed very well the partial divestment and listing of its masts business, Vantage Towers, which was partially floated in March of this year, raising EUR 2.8 billion for an 18.3% stake. The proceeds were used mainly in reducing Vodafone's leverage. (Vantage Towers IPO) Vodafone is a solid income investment for income-seeking investors, and it is trading near bottom levels of recent times, providing new investors with a chance to enter and existing investors with a tempting opportunity to increase their holdings.

spud: Vodafone Idea may be strapped for cash, but it’s fighting back hard Vodafone Idea's gross subscriber additions of 22 million were at a multi-quarter high. https://www.livemint.com Vodafone Idea is clearly punching above its weight. It is weighed down by extremely high debt, and its cash levels have nearly entirely depleted. But it has somehow managed to grow subscribers in the key 4G segment and drive data traffic growth Vodafone Idea Ltd (Vi) shareholders are an interesting lot. The firm’s losses and debt are higher than ever before, but its stock trades more than 40% higher compared to pre-covid highs. While they are somehow sustaining hopes of a fightback by the firm despite the odds, Vodafone Idea, on its part, is doing the best it can with its meagre resources. Its gross subscriber additions of 22 million were at a multi-quarter high. And while it continues to lose subscribers, net subscriber losses have been contained at 2 million in the past two quarters, compared to as high as 8 million, 11 million and 13 million in the preceding three quarters. What’s more, in the premium 4G segment, the company has added 4 million subscribers in each of the past two quarters. It also gained data traffic market share in the March quarter, with its total traffic growth exceeding the growth of Reliance Jio, according to data collated by Jefferies India Pvt. Ltd. Vodafone Idea is clearly punching above its weight. It is weighed down by extremely high debt, and its cash levels have nearly entirely depleted. But it has somehow managed to grow subscribers in the key 4G segment and drive data traffic growth. Of course, it continues to lose subscriber and revenue market share, as its competitors are growing at a faster pace. Analysts at Goldman Sachs point out that the company has lost another 130 basis points (bps) of revenue market share in March quarter, taking its cumulative share loss to 630 bps over the last 12 months. One basis point is one-hundredth of a percentage point. And thanks to the regulator’s decision to abolish the interconnection usage charge (IUC), the firm’s revenues fell by 12% sequentially, leading to higher-than-usual losses. The telecom provider's net loss in the March quarter rose to Rs6,985 crore, from ₹4,540 crore in the previous quarter. On a like-to-like basis, total revenues and average revenues per user were flat, analysts said. Of course, for all its heroics, the fact remains that Vodafone Idea is staring at a bleak future. The company's management said that there exists material uncertainty relating to its ability to continue as a going concern, which depends on its ability to raise additional funds, refinance debt and monetise some assets. It should be noted that the company's board in September 2020 had approved fundraising worth ₹25,000 crore through a mix of debt and equity instruments. But there is no concrete news on this, and the company continues to be in discussions with potential investors. The company further added that its ability to remain a going concern also depends on the “outcome of the modification application filed with the Supreme Court (SC) and clarity of the next instalment amount and acceptance of its deferment request by DoT." Vi has filed a plea filed in the SC to reduce its adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues from the over ₹58,000 crore demanded by the telecom department. It has also written to DoT for the deferment of an instalment of ₹8211 crore payable in April 2022. Analysts say the firm is headed for a financial crisis when annual payments come due. And the current cash balance is merely ₹350 crore. The firm’s ratings have been downgraded, due to which some lenders demanded an increase in interest rates and additional security against existing facilities, analysts at Motilal Oswal Financial Services pointed out in a note to clients. Meanwhile, with capital expenditure of Vi continuing to lag that of peers, market share losses are expected to continue. In FY21, Vodafone's capex was 72% lower than competitor Bharti Airtel Ltd. Vodafone Idea’s fightback may seem impressive, but what really counts is that potential investors are impressed, and are willing to back it. spud

davius: Sometimes shares are out of favour. BT was poor when the pension deficit was keeping the share price subdued. Vod has plenty of debt, but it's easily managed and they could clear it with a couple of appropriate asset sales if they needed to. Vantage Towers continues to do well since its floatation and I just calculated the VOD stake at around £9.7bn. The disconnect with BT is baffling, they used to track each others share price within about 10-20p, now BT has marched on to 200p and VOD can't even hang on to 130p. Ex-div next Thursday at 3% better than a poke in the eye with a pointed stick. I still think VODs day will come, but currently holding this is like being shafted up the rear with a barbed rod on a near daily basis.
