Morningstar | Slow Growth and Hefty Spectrum Costs Weigh on Vodafone's Cash Flow

Vodafone has transitioned from one of the world’s largest wireless telecom firms to a diversified operator offering converged mobile and fixed-line services in many markets. This shift comes as many of its core wireless markets have fully matured and competition has intensified. As a result, growth has stalled and capital needs have increased, pressuring the balance sheet. Shareholders likely face a bumpy year as Vodafone pushes to close its deal with Liberty Global, continue building fixed-line networks, fend off competition, and prepare for 5G wireless deployments.The acquisitions of Kabel D...

Slow Growth and Hefty Spectrum Costs Weigh on Vodafone's Cash Flow

We were disappointed Vodafone chose to cut its dividend before it received regulatory approval to acquire Liberty Global’s operations in Germany, Romania, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. However, on the call, the CEO was very positive that the remedy package Vodafone offered in response to the regulator's concerns will suffice for the deal to be approved. That said, we are still not wholly convinced regulators will sign off. Thus, we continue to exclude the acquisition from our model. The firm...

Morningstar | Lowering FVE Due to Slower Revenue Recovery in Spain and Italy and Higher Spectrum Costs

Vodafone is successfully transitioning from one of the world’s largest wireless-only telecom firms to a diversified operator offering converged mobile and fixed-line services in many markets. We think this is an important transition, as Europe is rapidly moving into a converged world. The acquisitions of Kabel Deutschland in Germany, Ono in Spain, and Cable & Wireless Worldwide in the United Kingdom provide Vodafone with some key fixed-line infrastructure in three of its biggest European markets. The firm has also laid significant amounts of its own fibre in Italy and has signed an agreement w...
