Verizon buys-out Vodafone’s stake in Verizon Wireless,
now owns 100%
Verizon Wireless and Vodafone have announced that Verizon has acquired Vodafone’s 45% stake in Verizon. This means that Verizon now owns 100% of its Wireless company. The cash and stock deal is worth $130 billion, and the deal is expected to close in Q1 2014.
Verizon says that it feels 100% ownership of Verizon Wireless will make them “better equipped to take advantage of the changing competitive dynamics in the market and capitalize on the continuing evolution of consumer demand for wireless, video and broadband services.”
