Vodafone may sell minority assets after investor pressure

first_imgThursday 9 September 2010 8:38 pm VODAFONE, the world’s largest mobile operator by revenue, is to simplify its structure following a drive to overhaul its portfolio after investor complaints.The company had said in July it would reconsider its strategy and look to “maximise shareholder value”, with analysts expecting it to seek to sell certain minority-owned assets. Vodafone, which this week sold its 3.2 per cent stake in China Mobile for $6.5bn (£4.2bn), said yesterday it would cut its operating regions to two from three and hold outside the regional structure its main minority stakes in other operators.Its stakes in US operator Verizon Wireless, France’s SFR, Polkomtel in Poland and India’s Bharti would now be held separately, it said, but added that this did not mean it had decided what to do with these assets.Vodafone said from 1 October it would remove management layers and have two operating regions compared with the three it has previously used. Europe will comprise one unit and Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific the other.Chief executive Vittorio Colao and his finance director will work together to maximise value from minority investments including Verizon Wireless, SFR, Polkomtel and Bharti Holding, the company said.

Jack Nowell: How to up your wing work-rate

Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Stay put in certain situations“If the ball is being spread along the line in the 22, you should be on the wing to get on the end of that movement. You don’t want any front-rows or second-rows there – you want wingers on the wing to finish off the try. It’s the same in defence, when you should be on the wing – you don’t want to leave any forwards there by themselves.”This article originally appeared in the February 2018 edition of Rugby World magazine. Jack Nowell: How to up your wing work-rateJack Nowell is renowned for his work-rate in matches. It’s a trait that has earned the Exeter Chiefs wing more than 30 England caps, including playing in two World Cups, as well as selection for the British & Irish Lions, for whom he made two appearances off the bench against New Zealand in 2017.So if you want to get more involved in the game, here are his top tips on increasing your work-rate out wide…Time it right“I’ve always been someone who wanted to get stuck in, even from the wing. Sometimes I’ll wait for the gap to open and sometimes I’ll use footwork to move the defenders around – and when you go 
into that gap you want to explode through it.”Learn from experience“The best way to learn when to work off your wing is to play matches.
