Vodafone Continues to Make Gradual Progress as Potential Consolidation Comes Into Focus

Analyst Note

| Michael Hodel, CFA |

Vodafone’s fiscal third-quarter results were broadly as expected, with management stating that the firm remains on track to hit the upper end of its financial expectations for the year. The firm only reports revenue and customer metrics for odd-numbered quarters. More importantly, management clearly sounded optimistic that it will move forward with transactions that change the structure of its operations in several countries. Rumors have swirled around potential merger partners for Vodafone’s operations in the U.K., Italy, and Spain, each of which continues to face challenging competitive environments. We continue to believe the market has overly discounted the long-term value of Vodafone’s assets, and we suspect moves to improve the economics in certain countries will help uncover that value. We don’t plan to change our GBX 185 fair value estimate.
