Guru Investment Theses on Vodafone Group PLC

Third Avenue Management Comments on Vodafone - Jul 23, 2014

Additional shares of Vodafone (VOD) Common were purchased following the completion of the company's sale of its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless to Verizon. This transaction resulted in a significant distribution to shareholders consisting mostly of Verizon common stock and also of cash. Fund Management elected to sell the Verizon shares owing to concerns about slowing growth and increasing completion in the US along with the company's leveraged balance sheet. Vodafone has a very strong financial position and is well positioned to benefit from consolidation in the European telecommunication market and growth in emerging markets. Vodafone Common accounted for 2.5% of the Fund's net assets at quarter end.

Hotchkis & Wiley Comments on Vodafone - Jul 22, 2014

Stock selection in telecommunications also detracted from performance, as our lone position (Vodafone 3.0%*) lagged the market. Vodafone (VOD) reported modest results and a disappointing outlook due to elevated capital expenditures. Vodafone , Bank of America (BAC) (3.3%)*, and Target (TGT) (2.7%)* were the largest individual performance detractors.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Vodafone Group Plc - Jan 06, 2014

Vodafone Group Plc. (0.1%) (VOD - $35.18 - NASDAQ)(VOD) is the second largest mobile operator in the world based on number of subscribers. Vodafone's operating units span Europe, Africa, and Australasia. Vodafone's single most valuable asset has been its 45% equity stake in Verizon Wireless in the U.S. In the third largest M&A transaction ever, Vodafone agreed on September 2 to sell its interest to Verizon for a total consideration of $130 billion. The price represents a multiple of 9.4x the trailing twelve month EBITDA for the unit and approximately 173 pence per Vodafone share. On completion of the transaction, which is expected in the first quarter of 2014, Vodafone intends to return $84 billion to shareholders or 71% of the net proceeds. Vodafone also announced, along with the deal, a new investment program (Project Spring) with £6 billion of organic investment over the next three years to further enhance its network and service leadership in key markets. Some £13.4 billion of the remaining proceeds will be used to reduce net debt, leaving the company with significant flexibility and net debt/EBITDA below 1.0x. The sale of the Verizon Wireless stake is a transformational event for Vodafone. The combination of Project Spring and potential further acquisitions, such as the pending purchase of Kabel Deutschland, will propel Vodafone into a market leading position across its managed businesses. On a pro forma basis, Vodafone shares remain attractive, trading at an undemanding 4.8x March 2014 EBITDA.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Vodafone - Dec 17, 2013

Fund Management initiated a position in Vodafone (VOD) Common during the quarter. Vodafone is a leading provider of telecommunications services based in the United Kingdom. This investment is discussed in more detail in this quarter's Third Avenue International Value Fund shareholder letter. The Vodafone common investment made by the Fund was prompted by the company's sale of its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless at a tremendous price (9.4 times EBITDA). Shares of Vodafone Common were purchased at less than five times pro-forma EBITDA and at a mid-single digit dividend yield in the Fund. Although conditions in the European telecommunications industry are difficult, Vodafone's business is very cash generative and the proceeds from the Verizon Wireless transaction will enable the company to reinvest more in its networks than many of its competitors while maintaining a very strong financial position and a healthy dividend. Vodafone also has substantial exposure to emerging markets, such as India and Africa, that are experiencing tremendous growth in demand for smart phones and data.

David Einhorn Comments on Vodafone - Oct 16, 2013

Vodafone (VOD) shares advanced from £.88 to £2.16. The highlight was the announced sale of its 45%minority interest in Verizon Wireless for $130 billion. Upon completion, VOD will be predominantly a European wireless carrier with a network and spectrum that leave it better positioned for growth than its peers. At 4.5x 2014 EBITDA, the VOD "stub" trades at a notablediscount to its sector and is a possible acquisition candidate.

David Einhorn Comments on Vodafone - May 13, 2013

In addition to MRVL and the Yen, Vodafone (VOD)(VOD) was another material winner during the quarter. It is now clear that Verizon does in fact want to buy VOD’s 45% interest in Verizon Wireless. We can hear them now. We believe that a premium sale followed by a successful return and/or redeployment of the proceeds could unlock substantial value latent in VOD stock. VOD without Verizon Wireless might also become a good acquisition target for AT&T. During the quarter VOD shares advanced from £1.54 to £1.87.

David Einhorn Comments on Vodafone - Jan 23, 2013

We have also increased our Vodafone (VOD) holdings, as the stock fell sharply on newsthat just doesn ’ t seem that bad. After achieving an August peak of £1.92, the shares ended theyear at £1.54. At this valuation, it appears that the market is placing no value on VOD’s 45%stake in Verizon Wireless. And the Verizon Wireless stake is clearly quite valuable.

Look at it from Verizon ’ s perspective: Historically, Verizon had a very profitable landline business, and Verizon Wireless owed it billions of dollars. Verizon received Verizon Wireless ’s free cash flow as it repaid the debt. For years, Verizon used its control to try to starve VOD by refusing to allow Verizon Wireless to pay dividends. Today, Verizon’s landline business generates no cash and the debt from Verizon Wireless has been repaid. Verizon’s 55% control stake in Verizon Wireless is probably worth mo re than all of Verizon’s market capitalization, and Verizon has become wholly dependent on dividends from Verizon Wireless to fund its parent company obligations and shareholder dividends.

Excluding any contribution from Verizon Wireless, VOD stock pays a 7% dividend and trades at less than 12x cash earnings – roughly in line with other large European telecom companies. Meanwhile, VOD has never become dependent on Verizon Wireless distributions.

Given the huge valuation disparity between what the market thinks Verizon Wireless is worth to Verizon (at least a couple hundred billion dollars) and what it ascribes to VOD (about zero), combined with Verizon’s increasing dependence on Verizon Wireless, it wouldn’t surprise us if Verizon decided to buy all of VOD to gain full ownership of Verizon Wireless.It could decide to become a global telecom leader or it could spin out parts of VOD that it’s not interested in owning. Maybe there is an investment banker with time on their hands reading this letter.
