Vodafone India-Idea Cellular merger deal gets CCI nod

The Competition Commission approved the merger of Vodafone India and Idea Cellular, said lawyers who worked on the deal, which will create the country's largest telecom operator, reported PTI. Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas and Co said the regulator has unconditionally approved merger of the telecommunications businesses of Vodafone India and its wholly-owned subsidiary Vodafone Mobile Services, with Idea Cellular. The USD 23 billion transaction is the largest transaction by value in the history of Indian M&A, it said in a statement. Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas and Co advised Vodafone India and Vodafone Mobile Services on the deal. According to the statement, the regulator carried out a comprehensive review of the transaction and concluded that there was no appreciable adverse effect on competition from the proposed merger. The CCI approval, within Phase 1, is a very welcome development for both the Indian M&A landscape and the telecom sector, and will serve to fuel more investment in capacity and coverage across a battling telecom sector in India, Shweta Shroff Chopra, Partner at Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, said. Phase 1 refers to the deal being approved within 30 working days as provided by the Competition Act. Law firm Trilegal, which advised Idea Cellular on the competition law aspects, said the deal with Vodafone India has received CCI approval. The proposed merger involved a merger of two of the biggest telecom companies in India and will create the largest telecom player in India, creating significant efficiencies and synergies, Trilegal said in a separate statement. Getting approval within Phase I implies that the deal would not be subject to detailed scrutiny. Transactions where there are prima facie concerns that they would adversely impact competition are taken into Phase II for an in-depth scrutiny. Mergers and acquisitions beyond a certain threshold require approval of the Competition Commission of India (CCI), which keeps a tab on unfair business practices across sectors. The deal, announced in March this year, will create the country's largest mobile phone operator worth more than USD 23 billion with a 35 per cent market share. Post the transaction, Vodafone will own 45.1 per cent stake in the merged entity while the Aditya Birla group, Idea's parent, will have 26 per cent shareholding after paying Rs 3,874 crore cash for a 4.9 per cent stake. The remaining 28.9 per cent will be held by other shareholders.

United Spirits Ltd (USL) said that it has reported 43.61 per cent jump in its standalone net profit at Rs 62.90 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, helped by an interest cost saving of Rs 70 crore despite witnessing drop in sales.

The Bengaluru-headquartered USL, owned by the London-based world’s largest liquor maker Diageo, also said its board has approved raising Rs 750 crore debt by way of private placement of non-convertible debentures. Performance in the first quarter, as expected, was impacted by the highway ban which has led to lower consumption due to a reduction in the number of retail outlets. We have also witnessed destocking by customers during the first quarter. Despite these challenges, the Signature continued to show positive momentum supported by the successful renovation and grew net sales 14 per cent. The re-launch of the Antiquity has started towards the end of the first quarter in select states with early signs of positive consumer and trade response”, Kripalu said. The GST has led to additional taxes on input materials and services which will result in stranded taxes and impact margins, he said.
