Vodafone to buy out minority shareholders

The Union cabinet has approved a proposal by Vodafone Group Plc to buy out minority shareholders in its India unit for a consideration of about Rs 10,141 crore.

Vodafone’s proposal entails acquiring the 11 per cent stake in Vodafone India Ltd held by Piramal Enterprises and businessman Analjit Singh. Vodafone, it might be recalled, in buying Hutchison Whampoa stake in cellular operations picked direct and indirect control in about 85 per cent of Vodafone India. After Airtel, Vodafone India is the 2nd largest telecom operator in the country encompassing cellular services.  Vodafone’s latest acquisition proposal had received the nod of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) in December last year. But the cabinet approval now makes the proposal formal and clears all decks for Vodafone to strengthen its Indian operations.
