Sharkawy & Sarhan with Vodafone on the acquisition by Vodacom 

Sharkawy & Sarhan acted as Egyptian counsel to the Vodafone Group (“Vodafone”) in relation to the transfer of its 55% shareholding in Vodafone Egypt to Vodacom. 

The spam of the transaction took more than a year. The transaction was subject to the approval of the Egyptian regulators (including the NTRA, FRA and the EGX) as well as the South African regulators, setting a unique precedent in Egypt for the sale of a telecommunications company, subject to the MTO rules, through a cash and swap of shares consideration. 

With this transaction, Vodafone’s shareholding in Vodacom will be increased from 60.5% to 65.1%. 

Sharkawy & Sarhan’s M&A team was led by partner Mohamed Nabil Hazzaa (pictured) and managing associate Esraa Abdelmoniem (pictured). Assisted by associates Youmna FahmyMenna AbouzekryNatalia Dybich and Hana Nassar.
