Vodafone confirms early discussions with Liberty Global
Vodafone has revealed it is in early discussions with Liberty Global over the potential exchange of ‘selected assets’.
It remains unclear which assets will be involved or that any transaction will be agreed, however Vodafone has confirmed that it is ‘not in discussions with Liberty Global concerning a combination of the two companies’.
Rumours of a potential merger between Vodafone and Liberty Global were fuelled by comments made by Liberty’s chairman John Malone in a recent Bloomberg interview. He explained that a combination of Vodafone and Liberty Global would be a ‘great fit’, adding that there would be ‘substantial synergies’ if the two companies could work together or ‘combine the companies’.
