10:51 EDTVZ, VODVerizon shareholders approve share issuance for acquisition of Verizon Wireless
Verizon (VZ) announced that at a special meeting a substantial majority of shareholders of Verizon approved the company's issuance of up to 1.28B shares of common stock to Vodafone (VOD) shareholders to complete the acquisition of Vodafone Group PLC's indirect 45% interest in the Verizon Wireless joint venture. Earlier at a shareholder meeting in London, Vodafone shareholders also approved matters necessary for the transaction to close, Verizon said. At the special shareholder meeting, Verizon shareholders also approved an amendment to the company's charter to increase by 2B the number of shares of Verizon common stock the company is authorized to issue. The approval of this charter amendment was not a condition to the completion of the Verizon Wireless transaction, but will allow for additional authorized common stock to support the company's growth and provide flexibility for future corporate needs. Under the terms of the stock purchase agreement and as a result of the shareholder vote, Verizon will not exercise an election to increase the cash consideration by up to $15B. The acquisition remains subject to approval of the High Court of Justice of England and Wales and other customary closing conditions. On Dec. 4, 2013, Verizon received the approvals needed from the Federal Communications Commission for the acquisition. The transaction is currently expected to close on or about Feb. 21, Verizon said.
