Vodafone takes full control of Indian business
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Vodafone (VOD.L) said on Friday it had taken full ownership of Vodafone India by buying the 11 percent it did not already own from Piramal Enterprises Limited (PIRA.NS).
In March 2014, Vodafone increased its stake in the unit to 89 percent by buying out Analjit Singh and Neelu Analjit Singh. It said the combined cost for both the deals in March and on Friday was 101.418 billion rupees, or 1 billion pounds.
