ATC to buy tower businesses of Voda, Idea for Rs 7,850 cr

Vodafone India and Idea Cellular -- which are slated to merge soon -- have decided to sell their respective tower businesses in India to ATC Telecom Infrastructure for Rs 7,850 crore, reported PTI. In a joint statement, the two companies said Idea will sell its entire holding in Idea Cellular Infrastructure Services Ltd (ICISL) while Vodafone will divest its business undertaking to ATC Infra. In the event that the completion of the sale of the standalone tower businesses precedes the completion of the proposed merger of Vodafone India and Idea, Vodafone India will receive Rs 3,850 crore (USD 592 million) and Idea will receive Rs 4,000 crore (USD 615 million), the statement added. The deal is expected to be completed by the first half of 2018. The standalone tower businesses of Vodafone and Idea comprise a combined portfolio of nearly 20,000 towers. The tower deal will not affect the merger terms of the two companies. The receipt of these proceeds prior to completion was anticipated and provided for in the merger agreement and hence would not affect the agreed terms of the Vodafone India and Idea merger, including the amount of debt which Vodafone will contribute to the combined company at completion, it added. The sale of tower business is subject to regulatory and other approvals. Earlier this year, Vodafone India and Idea had agreed to merge their operations to create the country's largest telecom operator worth of more than USD 23 billion with a 35 per cent market share. Vodafone India MD Sunil Sood had earlier said the merger of the two companies was on track for completion in 2018. The combined entity of Vodafone India and Idea Cellular, which are currently India's number 2 and 3, respectively, would dislodge Bharti Airtel to counter the bruising price war in the worlds second-largest telecom market.

Idea Cellular Q2 loss at Rs 1,107 cr; flags challenges

Idea Cellular today posted a loss of Rs 1,106.80 crore for the second quarter of the current fiscal, saying that the business was hit by pricing pressure and GST introduction in a challenging operating environment. The company -- which is headed for a merger with Vodafone India -- had reported a net profit of Rs 91.5 crore in the July-September quarter of the last fiscal. The operating environment for Indian mobile operators remained challenging with unrelenting pressure on pricing, introduction of Goods and Services Tax at 18 per cent (compared to service tax at 15 per cent) and need for large investments to support the exploding data demand, Idea said in a statement. Although seasonal industry slowdown is in sync with the past trends, the September quarter impact on the company's subscribers and revenue loss was more pronounced as always given its higher share of rural subscribers, Idea said. Its revenue from operations fell 19.72 per cent to Rs 7,465.5 crore in the July-September quarter of the current fiscal, from Rs 9,300.3 crore in the year-ago period. Shares of Idea were trading 2.78 per cent down to Rs 94.35 a piece on BSE. The company said its while broadband data usage nearly doubled, the rate realisation continued its free fall during the three months ended September. The voice realisation rate fell by 9.9 per cent over the June quarter, and mobile data realisation fell more sharply by 49.2 per cent. The revenue per subscriber also fell by 6.6 per cent to Rs 132 as against Rs 141 in June quarter. Idea's sequential quarterly voice minutes grew by 1.7 per cent to 255 billion minutes (against decline of 1.9 per cent in Q2FY17) and mobile data volume saw strong sequential growth of 73.5 per cent. The company is on course to introducing Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) -- a standard for speedy wireless communication -- by early 2018, the statement added. Idea and Vodafone India have recently entered into active infrastructure sharing arrangement, to avoid duplication of spends and make best use of capex (capital expenditure), the statement added. The Earnings before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) for the quarter declined nearly 20 per cent to Rs 1,501.6 crore hit by lower revenue and higher operating cost related to roaming and access (as outgoing minutes increased) and as also annual increments. Besides, the depreciation and amortisation charge increased to Rs 2,114.3 crore and interest and financing cost rose to Rs 1,182.9 crore as the company continued to aggressively invest in expanding its 4G footprint, the statement added. Idea's net debt as on September 30, 2017 was Rs 54,100 crore, including a large component of deferred payment obligation for spectrum acquired in auctions. Idea said its merger plans with Vodafone India is on track and the final petition for approval of scheme of arrangement has been filed with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT). The approval of shareholders and creditors for the merger has already been taken following a meeting organised by Idea under NCLT's supervision in October, it noted. Idea and Vodafone have also decided to sell their standalone tower business in India to ATC Telecom Infra for Rs 7,850 crore. Idea will get Rs 4,000 crore (and Vodafone Rs 3,850 crore) from the tower deal if sale completion precedes telcos' merger. On completion of Idea and Vodafone India merger, 6,300 co-located tenancies on the combined standalone tower businesses will be merged into single tenancy, within a staggered period of two years, without a penalty fee, the Idea statement added. The established telecom operators have seen locked in a fierce tariff war to protect their turf, following the entry of aggressive newcomer Reliance Jio in the market. The incumbent operators have blamed competitive pressures triggered by the free and disruptive offers of Jio, for the financial stress in the sector. India's telecom company Bharti Airtel posted 76.5 per cent fall in consolidated net profit to Rs 343 crore for the September quarter. Last week, Reliance Communications reported a consolidated loss of Rs 2,709 crore in the second quarter ended September 30, 2017, marking the fourth straight quarter of loss for the debt-laden company.
