Vodafone Reportedly Reaches A Deal To Acquire ONO

Vodafone Group Public Limited Company (LSE:VOD) has reached a preliminary deal to buy Grupo Corporativo ONO, S.A. after raising its initial bid for the company, two people with knowledge of the discussions said. Ono rebuffed an earlier bid from Vodafone in February and decided to go ahead with a planned initial public offering that would value the company at €7 billion, including debt. Sources said Vodafone's bid would have to be substantially higher than that value to persuade Ono and its private equity shareholders to drop the listing. "A meeting took place yesterday between the shareholders and (Vodafone Chief Executive) Vittorio Colao. The due diligence will start this weekend in order to make the offer binding," said one of the sources. A second source said Ono's private equity shareholders told Vodafone at the meeting that the offer would have to come before March 13, when the cable group is due to formally go ahead with the plan to list on the Madrid stock exchange. According to Reuters, both Ono and Vodafone declined to comment. CCMP Capital Advisors, LLC; Quadrangle Capital Partners; Providence Equity Partners LLC; and Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. own 54% of Ono, according to the company's website.
