    [$$] Europe’s telecoms landscape warms to ‘maverick’ operators

    Regulators in Germany and Belgium have in recent weeks opened the door to new entrants to the mobile sector. The advantages of encouraging a new generation of maverick telecoms groups has been kick-started by Iliad, the French company that proved to an enfant terrible in France after triggering a sustained price war in 2012 that caused mayhem for the established players. Iliad this year transplanted that model to Italy, having secured network infrastructure as part of the conditions to allow the merger of Three, a former European telecoms maverick itself during the 3G era, and rival Wind in 2016.

    Vodafone Could Be Ripe for Activist Investors

    A weak share price, a fragile dividend and a switch of chief executives: conditions at Vodafone Group Plc may be ripe for a shake-up by U.S. activist investor Elliott Management Corp. The move comes at a critical time for Vodafone, which is battling intense competition in Europe and trying to rescue its share price from an eight-year low. Outgoing Chief Executive Officer Vittorio Colao spent the past decade shifting Vodafone from a predominantly mobile carrier with sprawling global investments to one which is more focused on Europe and also offers bundled internet services.

    Vodafone Was Always an Activist Target Waiting to Happen

    A weak share price, a massive debt-fuelled acquisition, and an impending switch to an unproven CEO: Vodafone Plc has the characteristics of a large, slow-moving target for shareholder activism. Little wonder investors took seriously Monday's story in Dealreporter that the British telecom group had attracted the interest of ubiquitous corporate agitator Elliott Management Corp. Whatever Vodafone and outgoing Chief Executive Officer Vittorio Colao have achieved lately, it hasn't been a success for investors.

    Orange's Bet on Spain Pays Off With Quarterly Earnings Beat

    Orange SA is taking lessons from a price war in France beyond its home market to Spain, where a push to win subscribers paid off with a second-quarter earnings beat. The French telecom carrier is winning phone, internet and TV customers to the detriment of rivals in Spain, where the entrance of Masmovil Ibercom SA as a fourth operator in 2016 added competitive pressure. Comparable sales rose 1.8 percent for Orange in Spain, where it now has 2.6 million fiber broadband customers, compared with a 0.6 percent gain in France.

    Vodafone's New CEO Read Faces Challenge of a Stagnant Europe

    Vodafone Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Vittorio Colao staked the British company’s future on Europe’s maturing telecommunications market, where business is now shrinking in a challenge for his successor Nick Read. The decline in European quarterly sales that Vodafone reported Wednesday piles pressure on Read to confront new mobile competitors in southern Europe and make a success of its $22 billion takeover of Liberty Global Plc’s German and east European businesses. The world’s second-largest mobile carrier resorted to steep discounting in Spain, where Orange SA is stepping up its game, and in Italy, where Iliad SA burst onto the scene in May with cut-price subscriptions.
