    • Vodafone (VOD) is in reportedly early discussions to acquire Tata Group's 59.45% stake in Tata Teleservices in a deal that would create India's largest telco with 248M subscribers.
    • However, Japan's NTT DoCoMo (DCM), which owns just over a quarter Tata Teleservices, has a right of first refusal on the majority holding.
    • Should Vodafone prevail, it would look to acquire all of Tata Teleservices, whose market cap is 16.28B rupees ($261M).
    • Meanwhile, Vodafone Egypt has been accused of inciting terrorism by incorporating secret messages supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in an advertisement.
    • Vodafone has denied the allegations, which Egyptian prosecutors are investigating amid an intensifying crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood by the military government that deposed it.
    • The accusations add another headache for multinationals that operate in Egypt to go with political instability, security worries and economic uncertainty.
