Case Study 1

Vodafone- Idea Merger

On 3rd August 2018, India witnessed one of the most anticipated and the biggest mergers of the telecom industry when National Company Law Tribunal and SEBI approved the merger of India’s second largest mobile operator Vodafone India Limited (VMSL) with India’s third largest mobile telephony company Idea Cellular (Idea).

Post the merger Vodafone possesses roughly 45% stake in the merger substance though Idea limited has a portion of around 26%. The reason for the merger was to make the biggest telecom network in India with the most elevated client base and also to control the rise of Jio in the telecom sector. In the initial phase, Jio announced free services to its users. So as a result, it started occupying the maximum part of the market.

The merger of Vodafone and Idea together are gradually achieving gains in the present year ultimately resulting in higher profit and will add hgh expectations to its shareholders also opening a plethora of opportunities for the youth of the nation.

Case Study 2

Flipkart’s acquisition of Myntra

2014 saw the merger of two of the biggest e-commerce players of that time in the Indian market, Flipkart and Myntra.

With e-commerce catching fast pace and stiff competition from foreign contenders like Amazon, Flipkart contemplated to avail the position of Myntra’s 30% market share in fashion e-commerce.

Flipkart acquired Myntra thus becoming one of the biggest online fashion trend setter companies in India. However, it is to note here that after the acquisition of Myntra by Flipkart neither of the party’s existence was impacted as they continued to operate separately and independently.

The acquisition of Myntra by Flipkart allowed it to start its journey into the fashion space which was an untouched market by Flipkart before the merger. Thus, this helped Flipkart to exploit a market which was unavailable to it earlier.

This deal enabled both the companies to exploit their mutual expertise, i.e. advanced technical background of Flipkart and market leadership of Myntra to profit from each other’s growth. Therefore, this deal provided an opportunity for fashion and technology to work hand in hand and also contribute to each other’s growth hence creating a win-win situation for both the parties.

Case Study 3
