    Sunrise confident shareholders will back $6.3 billion Liberty Global deal

    Sunrise Communications believes it can win shareholder backing to raise $4.1 billion (3.12 billion pounds) to complete its takeover of Liberty Global's Swiss business, Chief Executive Olaf Swantee told Reuters. Swantee said he believed the $6.3 billion deal could still be completed despite Sunrise's largest shareholder opposing the structure of the deal to buy UPC in a transaction which would transform Switzerland's telecoms landscape. The executive has met more than 100 investors to convince them about the deal, which would create a stronger rival to state-controlled Swisscom in providing mobile phone, cable television and internet services.

    Vodafone to receive EU warning over $22 billion Liberty deal - sources

    Vodafone will receive a warning from EU regulators about possible anti-competitive effects from its $22 billion (16.6 billion pounds) deal to buy Liberty Global's German and eastern European assets, two people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. The warning, via a statement of objections setting out the European Commission's concerns, is expected to be conveyed to the companies shortly, the sources said, ahead of a June 3 deadline for the EU executive's regulatory approval. The world's second-largest mobile operator and U.S. cable pioneer John Malone's Liberty announced the deal in May last year in a move that would help Vodafone to compete with rival Deutsche Telekom in its home market.

    EU regulators to warn Vodafone, Liberty Global about $22 bln deal - sources

    EU antitrust regulators are set to warn Vodafone and Liberty Global about the possible anti-competitive effects of their $22 billion deal, two people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. The warning, via a statement of objections setting out the European Commission's concerns, is expected to be conveyed to the companies shortly, the people said. The EU antitrust enforcer opened a full-scale investigation into the deal in December last year, saying that Vodafone's purchase of Liberty Global's assets in Germany and east Europe may hurt competition in Germany and the Czech Republic.

    Vodafone Planning $4.5 Billion Convertible Bonds Sale

    The two sets of sterling-denominated securities, announced Tuesday, will help pay for the $22 billion purchase of Liberty Global’s German and Eastern European units, part of the U.K. telecommunications company’s push to refocus on the continent after years scaling back its global ambitions. Vodafone Chief Executive Officer Nick Read is trying to rein in debt as he prepares to close the Liberty deal, which still needs approval from European competition authorities. The mandatory convertible bond sale plans, previously reported by Bloomberg, follow Vodafone’s issuance of almost 2.9 billion pounds ($3.8 billion) of mandatory convertible bonds three years ago.

    Swiss Sale Leaves Malone With More Cash for Next Europe Move

    Liberty Global expects to earn $16 billion from deals announced or completed in the last 14 months and investors are keen to know if it will spend the money on acquisitions -- especially as the pending sale of the fast-growing German business has made it harder for the company to maintain the same growth profile. “Today’s announcement further validates our strategy of building or enabling national champions in our core European markets,” Liberty Global Chief Executive Officer Mike Fries said in a statement. UPC Switzerland has been Liberty Global’s worst-performing unit as it loses customers in an aggressive discounting war and a tie-up with Sunrise has long been discussed.

    Sunrise hits snag after announcing $6.3 billion deal for Liberty Global's Swiss assets

    Sunrise said earlier on Thursday that it had agreed to buy UPC Switzerland from John Malone's Liberty Global and that it would finance the transaction with a $4.1 billion rights issue. The acquisition will bolster Sunrise's position against Switzerland's dominant mobile and internet provider Swisscom and comes as Malone is cashing out of some of his European investments. In a potential obstacle, however, Freenet, which owns a nearly 25 percent stake in Sunrise, said it would not participate in the rights issue, arguing that it saddles existing investors with all the risk.

    Sunrise seeks to compete on price after $6.3 billion UPC deal

    Swiss telecoms group Sunrise wants to crank up price competitiveness following its 6.3 billion Swiss franc ($6.3 billion) takeover of Liberty Global's Swiss unit and also expects job cuts from the deal, Chief Executive Olaf Swantee told Reuters on Thursday. The purchase of Liberty's UPC Switzerland, to be accompanied by a 4.1 billion francs rights issue, bolsters Sunrise's position as Switzerland's second-largest telecoms company, and creates a bigger challenger to market leader Swisscom. Stakeholder Freenet -- which holds about a quarter of Sunrise's shares -- has not yet decided whether it can or will take part in the rights issue, Sunrise Chief Financial Officer Andre Krause told Reuters in the same call.

    Sunrise in advanced talks for Liberty Global's $6.3 billion Swiss unit

    Sunrise Communications has entered "advanced discussions" to buy Liberty Global's Swiss business in a deal which values the internet and digital television provider at 6.3 billion Swiss francs ($6.30 billion). Sunrise said it would only pursue a deal for UPC Schweiz if it was "strategically compelling and demonstrably value creative for its shareholders," and said no final decision had been made. A purchase could strengthen Sunrise's position as Switzerland's second-largest telecoms company, and would be another European sale by Liberty Global which divested its Austrian business to T-Mobile Austria last year.
