AT&T Says no to Vodafone Purchase

Rumors have been circulating for a while that AT&T was looking to purchase European wireless company Vodafone. Talk of an AT&T purchase first began to surface when Vodafone sold off its shares in Verizon in the US.

AT&T recently told the British Takeover Panel that it did not intend to buy Vodafone for at least the next six months reports Reuters. The announcement sent shares in Vodafone tumbling 6% in trading. AT&T could come back to the purchase table if certain outside conditions are met.

That outside condition is if a third party steps into the fray in an attempt to buy Vodafone. Analysts think that AT&T stepped away from the potential purchase due to the intense competition in the European mobile marketplace driving down prices.

"AT&T notes the recent speculation regarding a potential transaction involving Vodafone Group Plc," it said in a short statement. "At the request of the UK Takeover Panel, AT&T confirms that it does not intend to make an offer for Vodafone."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
