    Vodafone, Sky, WindTre urge Italy to create independent single network operator

    Vodafone <VOD.L>, Comcast unit SKY <CMCSA.O> and WindTre on Monday urged Italy to create a single broadband communications network that can guarantee neutrality and independence for all players. In August, Rome signed off on a plan to create a national unified fast broadband network designed in part to head off concern that Telecom Italia (TIM) <TLIT.MI>, Italy's biggest phone group, could end up with too much sway over it. TIM, with a large retail client division, has repeatedly said it wants to control any single grid while European regulations favour the adoption of a non-vertically integrated model outside TIM’s control.

    Vodafone Remains in Talks to Sell Stake in Egypt Unit to STC

    (Bloomberg) -- Vodafone Group Plc said it remains in talks to sell its Egyptian business to Saudi Telecom Co. after failing to finalize the terms before a deadline.Vodafone “remains in discussions with Saudi Telecom to finalize the transaction in the near future,” and “now looks to Saudi Telecom and Telecom Egypt to find a suitable agreement to enable the transaction to close,” the U.K.-based mobile carrier said in a statement.Saudi Telecom offered to pay $2.39 billion for a 55% stake in Vodafone Egypt in January. It had to extend a memorandum of understanding to acquire the stake in July because of delays to due diligence amid restrictions in place to halt the spread of the coronavirus. The remaining shares in Vodafone Egypt are held by Telecom Egypt.Saudi Telecom said in a separate statement that its non-binding MoU to acquire the stake expired without a deal, and that it will continue talks with Vodafone. The company had been looking to reduce its offer for the stake in Vodafone Egypt, people familiar told Bloomberg earlier this month.Telecom Egypt fell as much as 7.7% in Cairo, the most within members of the EGX 30, while STC retreated as much as 0.3% in Riyadh.State-run Telecom Egypt said it hasn’t received proposals from either company and doesn’t “have insight into the state of discussion or terms being discussed between the parties.” The telecom firm noted “that the inference that Telecom Egypt has a role to play in assisting Vodafone Group and STC to conclude a transaction is unclear and without foundation.”Any action Telecom Egypt takes will depend on the terms of any proposals submitted to it, the company said, adding it was “confident of its ability to execute a number of strategic options” including right of first refusal and considering accepting a mandatory tender offer for its Vodafone Egypt stake.Egyptian market regulations would require Saudi Telecom to submit a mandatory tender offer for all of Vodafone Egypt, including the stake held by Telecom Egypt.Analysts from Cairo-based investment bank Naeem Holding said in a research note that while the deal seems to have been put on hold or canceled, “going by STC’s statement that room for dialogue still remains open with Vodafone,” the MoU could be “reactivated” if STC was permitted to buy just 55% of Vodafone Egypt.(Updates with Telecom Egypt statement from sixth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
