Vodafone Completes Acquistion of Telstraclear

Vodafone New Zealand today announced the completion of its acquisition of TelstraClear Limited (“TelstraClear”) for a cash consideration of NZ$840 million.

The transaction, which was announced on 12 July 2012, received final regulatory approval on 30 October 2012 and completed on 31 October 2012.

Vodafone New Zealand Chief Executive Russell Stanners said he was pleased the transaction has completed.

“We can now start bringing the businesses together and releasing the potential for our customers. Our combined strength in both mobile and broadband means we can help our customers do their thing better – whether that’s mobile services, broadband, pay TV or sophisticated ICT services across New Zealand.

“Vodafone and TelstraClear are now one business, operating as separate business units, with a strong focus on continuing to deliver a great experience to Vodafone and TelstraClear customers.”

Vodafone will be communicating with customers from both companies over the coming weeks to provide more information.
