Vodafone is one of the biggest cellular networks in the world, offering
services in over 30 different countries and holding 340 million
subscribers in its top markets. Needless to say many heads are facing
towards them when financial reports emerge, and the latest one brings
some interesting information to the table.
While Vodafone is huge, their numbers aren’t always as impressive as
their fame. The quarter ending on June 30th shows an overall 4.5%
drop in revenue when compared to last year’s same quarter; revenue
decreased from €14,007 million to €13,377 million.
In Europe, Vodafone has managed to stay stable despite lower
roaming fees. Germany, Spain and Italy have seen increases of 1.6%,
1.3% and 1.2%, relatively. Meanwhile, things are not looking as good in
Things are also looking grimmer in terms of the number of subscribers.
Vodafone did add 26,000 contract subscribers, but they also lost
249,000 prepaid users.
Vodafone seems to be having problems in multiple areas, but things
are looking pretty good in others. In general, we say there is not much
to worry about yet.
The evolution of Vodafone started in 1982 with the
establishment of the Racal Strategic Radio Ltd subsidiary
of Racal Electronics, the UK's largest maker of military
radio technology, which formed a joint venture
with Millicom called 'Racal', which evolved into the present
On 16 September 1991, Racal Telecom was demerged
from Racal Electronics as Vodafone Group, with Gerry
Whent as its CEO.
In July 1996, Vodafone acquired the two thirds of Talkland
it did not already own for £30.6 million. On 19 November
1996, in a defensive move, Vodafone purchased Peoples
Phone for £77 million, a 181 store chain whose customers
were overwhelmingly using Vodafone's network. In a
similar move the company acquired the 80% of Astec
Communications that it did not own.
