Vodafone is set to generate up to €2.3 billion from its Frankfurt IPO.
The telco giant has set the share price of its infrastructure business Vantage Towers at €24 each, giving the company a value of €12.1 billion.
Vodafone could make as much as €2.3 billion from the deal, with the company placing 95.8 million shares during the IPO. This includes 12.5 million for possible over-allotments (greenshoe).
Vodafone had initially set an initial price range for Vantage’s IPO at €22.50-29, but narrowed it to €24-25 this week. The company initially targeted proceeds of between €2-2.8 billion.
Should the greenshoe be exercised, Vodafone will continue to own 81.1% of the tower unit.
Announcing the floatation, Vodafone CEO Nick Reed said: “This IPO unlocks value for our shareholders: it demonstrates the value of our towers assets in a 5G world.”
Vantage towers owns 82,000 macro sites in 10 European countries. Its portfolio includes towers, masts, rooftop sites, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and small cells.
