AT&T: No plans to bid for Vodafone; latter eyes Spain's ONO

  • AT&T (T) has no intention of making an offer for Vodafone (VOD), the U.S. company said today in response to speculation about a possible deal. (PR)
  • Meanwhile, Vodafone is in talks to acquire Spain's Grupo Corporativo ONO before the cable operator carries out an IPO, Bloomberg reports.
  • Any deal for ONO, which one analyst says could be worth an estimated €6.4B ($8.7B) including debt, would add to Vodafone's acquisition of other cable providers in Europe such as Kabel Deutschland in Germany.

    Never believe anything until it is officially denied!

    Just what I was thinking. This is exactly how I would handle this if I was AT & T's CEO.
