History of Vodafone

 

Vodafone (LON: VOD) was established in 1984 as a subsidiary of Racal Electronics under the name Racal Telecom. Racal Telecom became an independent company in September 1991 and was renamed Vodafone Group.

Following a period of worldwide expansion through acquisitions and partnerships which began in 1999, in the 2010s Vodafone entered a period of retrenchment and simplification of its operations.

More recently, in march 2021, Vodafone launched one of the biggest IPO of the year in Europe (€2.3 billion raised) with its antenna relay subsidiary.
