This makes the buyer from the United Arab Emirates the largest British shareholder in one fell swoop.
The buyer further stated that he intends to be a long-term investor. An offer for the remaining Vodafone share certificates is not planned. However, the time for such an offer would be good: Although the Vodafone share price has increased by almost five percent since the beginning of the year, it is only half the level of its 2018 peak.
Vodafone is currently under pressure from activist shareholder Cevian Capital. He wants to increase the British profits by simplifying the business and various transactions. (SDA)
