TPG and Vodafone Hutchison Australia have announced that they will proceed with their merger to form a telecommunications giant that they say will have an enterprise value of approximately AU$15 billion.
Nick Read, CEO-designate of Vodafone, said: "This transaction accelerates Vodafone's converged communications strategy in Australia and is consistent with our proactive approach to enhance the value of our portfolio of businesses". Vodafone will provide a guarantee on approximately A$2.4bn of this debt, lower than the approximately A$3.3 billion guarantee that Vodafone now provides for VHA's debt.
VHA CEO Iñaki Berroeta will be the managing director and chief executive of the merged group, while TPG CEO and chairperson David Teoh will be the chairperson.
TPG is Australia's second largest internet service provider (ISP) with more than 1.9 million subscribers, while Vodafone is the third largest mobile operator with 6 million subscribers.
The two telcos will combine as "TPG Telecom Limited", granted they receive approval from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
In parallel to the merger agreement, TPG and VHA have signed a separate joint venture agreement in order to participate together in the upcoming spectrum auction and manage their spectrum licences.
