Vodafone share price: VOD H1 earnings as they happened

Take a look at our coverage of Vodafone’s interim earnings to see the results as they happened and the impact it had on the company’s share price.

  • 11/13/20191:29:23 PM

    What happened to Vodafone’s share price before and after its H1 earnings?

    On the day of the earnings release – 12 November 2019 – the Vodafone share price opened at 163.00p. This was up from the previous day’s close of 160.30p.

    In the first half an hour of trading, the share price rose to 165.40p, breaking through the key price level of 164.00p. While the price fell back to 160.48p by 9.30am, it went on to reach an intra-day high of 169.48p – a level which had not been met since December 2018.

    Although Vodafone’s 0.3% increase in organic revenue might seem small, it does represent the company’s return to growth, which it expects to continue throughout the remainder of its financial year. Overall, the day of the interim earnings was a win for the bulls, but it remains to be seen what impact the company’s debt pile and adverse Supreme Court ruling in India will have on the Vodafone share price.

    The acquisition of Liberty Global has come at a high price

    While the company has raised its 2020 adjusted EBITDA earnings guidance – from €13.8-14.2 billion to €14.8-15 billion – it has also disclosed that the cost of the acquisition of Liberty Global has taken Vodafone’s debt pile from €32.1 billion to €48.1 billion.

    Alongside these headlines, Vodafone's organic service revenues have beaten expectations and H1 service revenue was up 0.3%.

    Vodafone says Supreme Court ruling to blame for loss of almost €2bn

    The Vodafone Group made a loss for the period of €1.9 billion. Vodafone says this primarily reflects a loss at Vodafone Idea following an adverse legal judgement against the industry by the Supreme Court.

    This was partially offset by a profit from the disposal of Vodafone New Zealand in July.

    Basic loss per share was 7.24 eurocents, compared to a loss per share of 28.89 eurocents in the previous year.

    Could Liberty Global be a key factor for Vodafone’s H1?

    A lot of noise has been made this year about Vodafone’s acquisition of Liberty Global, which was completed in August 2019.

    The deal could see Vodafone gain even more presence in the European telecoms market, where it currently sits as the second largest pay-TV provider behind Sky. Especially with its increased exposure in Germany (it is now Germany’s largest pay-TV operator), analysts are optimistic that the move could see the Vodafone achieve earnings growth of 23% in its 2021 financial year.

    However, the deal has also added an estimated €18.4 billion to Vodafone Group's debt.

      VOD dividend cut earlier this year

      One of the main reasons that Vodafone stock has had such a rocky few months is that the mobile operator’s management team made the decision to cut its dividend in May 2019. This was the first dividend cut in the company’s history.

      The move was part of a strategy to reduce debt and give the company more room to invest in the technology that would see Vodafone expand its 5G networks and complete its acquisition of Liberty Global.

      The dividend cut did have an impact on the value of VOD, which was trading 2.7% lower on the day of the announcement.

      Good afternoon and welcome to IG’s coverage of Vodafone's first-half (H1) earnings. Over the next two days, we’ll be bringing you regular updates on the mobile operator’s earnings for the period ended 30 September 2019

      The results are expected to commence at approximately 7am (UK time) tomorrow – 12 November. Until then, we’ll be taking a look at Vodafone’s performance over the past few months and the key events that have played a part in shaping analysts’ expectations for the H1 report.

      Although in the short-term Vodafone is still expected to see volatility amid debt concerns and dividend cuts, its long-term earnings prospects are predicted to rebound following years of slow growth.

      Analysts have entered predictions that the company’s stock will reach 187p per share, which is in contrast to the current price of approximately 160p. This morning Vodafone shares opened lower than Friday’s close – at 161.42, compared to 162.60 – and have continued to move lower throughout the day. At the time of writing, shares of VOD were trading at 159.98p.
