Vodafone's deal to fully own Indian unit approved by regulators

After delaying its decision earlier this month, India's foreign investment regulator has signed off on Vodafone's (VOD -0.4%) to $1.6B deal to acquire the 15.5% stake in its Indian subsidiary that it doesn't already directly or indirectly own.

In tandem with the deal, Vodafone has committed to investing $2B through its Indian unit. The subsidiary claims over 154M subs (#2 overall) in a market still seeing healthy growth, making it a crucial part of Vodafone's emerging markets expansion efforts.

    VOD has hung in here despite the voodoo of emerging market confusion and corruption. Another reason beside VZ deal to view this company as a buy after the inevitable dip when divestitures in 2014 of VZ Wireless holdings begin.

    That's $11 a subscriber, or $80 undiluted, plus about $13 a pop for capex. This is a coup.
