VODAFONE FOUNDATION LAUNCHES EU SMART ACCESSIBILITY AWARDS

 

€200k competition for developers to help improve the lives of older people and

persons with disabilities across the European Union

 

14th June, 2011.  In the week of the first EU Digital Assembly in Brussels, Vodafone Foundation is launching the Smart Accessibility Awards. This is a new competition to promote the development of IT applications designed to improve the lives of people with disabilities and older people to help them become more actively involved in society.

 

 

The programme is supported and co-organized by AGE Platform Europe, the European network of around 160 organisations of and for people aged 50+, and the European Disability Forum (EDF), the NGO that represents the interests of 80 million Europeans with disabilities.

 

 

Launched in Brussels, the competition will award the best smartphone application across four different categories as follows:

 

 

1.

Social participation: This refers to applications which help users to participate actively in today’s society and benefit from the facilities that the new technologies can offer, whatever their age, disability and/or capacity (E.g. use the web and social media through mobile devices, contact people using mobile devices to the same extent as everyone, etc).

 

 

2.

Independent living: This refers to applications which help users to be more autonomous and perform daily tasks independently (E.g. using domestic appliances such as washing machines or refrigerators, opening doors safely, etc).

 

 

3.

Mobility: This refers to applications which enable users to move around more freely and safely using the whole range of transport modes. It can also refer to the use of mobile devices to be guided in unknown environments (e.g. using GPS option, etc).

 

 

4.

Wellbeing: This refers to applications which improve the users’ health and  as well as overall feeling of wellbeing.

 

The total prize fund of the €200k will be split equally between the four winners. The competition is open from 14 June 2011 to 15 October 2011. All entries should be submitted to http://developer.vodafone.com/smartaccess2011/

 

All qualifying entries will be evaluated in November by a jury, consisting of representatives from AGE Platform Europe, European Disability Forum and Vodafone Foundation. Twelve finalists

 


 

will be selected and requested to present their application before the final jury in Brussels in early December at a live final, where the four overall winners will be chosen.

 

 

Vodafone Foundation Director, Andrew Dunnett said “The Vodafone Foundation is keen to help as many people as possible benefit from new technologies. The Smart Accessibility Awards will help developers create apps that can really make a difference to people’s lives – we are thrilled to be able to support such an important initiative.”

 

 

Anne-Sophie Parent, AGE Platform Europe Secretary General, said “We are pleased to be involved in a project that supports our efforts towards building a more inclusive society.  Digital inclusion is key to ensuring as many people as possible remain actively involved in their communities and we should make sure every citizen is empowered to do so, whatever their age or capacities. We hope this competition will help reach that goal and also contribute to the ‘European Year 2012 for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations’ where the objective is to increase older people’s active participation in society and promote independent living in old age. ”

 

Rodolfo Cattani, EDF Executive Member, said; “Being part of this competition is very important for us. Communication technologies are vital to making possible the inclusion of persons with disabilities. When the mobile applications are not accessible, it can create new obstacles and can lead to new forms of discrimination. We look forward to seeing accessible apps.”

Notes to Editors

 

Entries will be judged under the following criteria

 

o

Effectiveness: The application submitted should provide real and substantial benefit to the targeted users in overcoming the obstacles related to their disability and improving their everyday life, targeting an equivalent use as non-disabled people do.

 

 

o

Availability and affordability:  We seek to maximize the number of potential users that might benefit from the application.

 


 

 

Applicants are encouraged to write apps that can be distributed across as many mainstream platforms as possible. All applications must operate on the Android platform version 2.2 (or above) and must meet the terms and conditions of Vodafone’s App Store. Developers are encouraged to make the application relevant to users in as many countries as possible. Availability of the applications in more languages will also be positively evaluated. To maximise the number of potential users that might benefit from the application, the expected charges, if any, to be sought from the user will also be taken into account in the evaluation of the application. Such application should not cost more than the one intended for non-disabled users.

 

 

o

User-friendliness, usability and accessibility: The application’s user-friendliness and usability will be an important factor in the evaluation of the application. Consideration will also be given to the ease by which the application can be installed and downloaded. Applications should also meet accessibility requirements.

 

 

o

Design for All: By design for all or universal design, we mean “the design of products environments, programmes and services to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design” (Article 2 of UN CRPD). Many users experience multiple disabilities. With ageing, older people in particular tend to develop concurring hearing, visual, cognitive and mobility impairments. Applications that accommodate all these needs in a concept of Design-for-All will be positively evaluated. Persons with disabilities form a heterogeneous group with many different accessibility criteria. Development of assistive technologies and interoperability between different technologies are the key elements in the evaluation. In particular, developed applications should be compatible with ICT assistive devices (such as text-to-speech devices for blind users) in order to accommodate the specific needs of older people and persons with disabilities.

VODACOM TO BUILD ONE OF AFRICA’S GREENEST COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS

 

South African innovation centre will develop renewable energy solutions to help reduce carbon emissions across Vodafone group

 

Vodacom, a subsidiary of Vodafone, is to build one of Africa’s greenest commercial buildings as a base to develop new ways of using renewable energy across Vodafone’s global networks.

 

 

Based in Midrand, South Africa, the innovation centre will play an important role in helping to reduce carbon emissions through the use of renewable energy, as well as batteries. The centre will also look at how to reduce the running and deployment cost of base station sites. Findings will be shared across the Vodafone group.

 

 

In developing markets such as South Africa, base stations sometimes need to be situated in remote areas with limited or no access to grid power in order to connect isolated communities. Renewable energy from solar panels and wind turbines can offer an alternative to diesel generators in such off-grid sites.

 

 

The innovation centre itself is being constructed to stringent guidelines from the Green Building Council of South Africa to significantly reduce or eliminate its impact on the environment.

 

 

Steve Pusey, Vodafone Group Chief Technology Officer said: “We want to explore how solar and wind power can help to connect isolated communities, reduce carbon emissions and reduce energy costs. As well as being a beacon for environmental construction, Vodacom’s innovation centre will help us to develop even more efficient networks.”

 

 

The innovation centre is expected to be completed by the year end.

VODAFONE OFFERS SMALL AND MEDIUM BUSINESSES A COMPLETE CLOUD-BASED COMMUNICATIONS AND IT SOLUTION WITH MICROSOFT OFFICE 365

 

 

·                  Firms to benefit from integrated cloud communications services including hosted telephony and connectivity for Fixed and Mobile and Microsoft Office 365 productivity tools

 

 

London, 28 June 2011 – Vodafone is to offer business customers a complete communications and IT solution with Microsoft Office 365 alongside its hosted telephony service, Vodafone One Net.

 

 

This new service is the latest development in Vodafone’s long-standing relationship with Microsoft Corp., which has focused on bringing together the best communications services from both businesses to assist small and medium sized firms (“SMEs”).

 

 

The combined offer will give businesses access to enterprise-class productivity and telecoms services on a more affordable, rental basis. When used together, they will enable employees to work from virtually anywhere and on almost any device.

 

 

In a competitive market, the services will enable SMEs with dispersed workforces to operate as slickly as their larger rivals by accessing the kind of tools and services that have traditionally only been available to bigger companies.

 

 

Vodafone One Net, which has over 1.4 million users across Europe, gives SMEs a simple, cost-effective, one bill solution for all fixed and mobile users. Intelligent call routing means that no matter what number a customer dials it can be answered on desk phones or mobile.

 

 

Microsoft Office 365 will give businesses cloud access to the latest Microsoft productivity tools including email and calendar, Microsoft Office Web Apps, collaboration tools, instant messaging and online meetings.

 


 

Tom Craig, Vodafone Business Services Director: “Small and medium sized businesses are the backbone of the European economy and it is imperative that we provide them with the tools to compete with big business in a challenging marketplace where customers expect fast responses 24/7. The combination of our fixed and mobile communications service with Office 365 helps deliver the benefits of agility, productivity and flexibility. This allows firms to respond extremely quickly to queries and puts them on a level playing field with larger companies.”

 

 

The hosted model means that key staff are no longer required to divert valuable time and energy to IT maintenance, freeing them to focus on their work. The simple, pricing structure also provides greater predictability over cost as well as enabling firms to scale services up or down depending on their requirements.

 

 

Marco Limena, VP, Business Services, Operator Channels at Microsoft: “Office 365 is our next generation cloud productivity service, combining the best productivity solutions in the market. Vodafone is an experienced partner in offering integrated communications and IT services to businesses, helping firms to do more with less. By extending their portfolio to include Office 365, Vodafone is set to give businesses a further boost in today’s challenging economic climate.”

 

 

Vodafone will begin to roll out the solution across selected European markets later in the year.

 

 

Recent research from Vodafone highlighted that Small Businesses across Europe were missing out on new business opportunities because they were unable to respond to customer enquiries fast enough in a world where customers increasingly expect around the clock service.

Vodafone Group Plc (“Vodafone”)

 

2011 Annual Report

 

2011 Review of the Year and Notice of Annual General Meeting

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.1, Vodafone has uploaded a copy of each of the above documents to the National Storage Mechanism.

 

The 2011 Annual Report is available at www.vodafone.com/investor and the 2011 Review of the Year and Notice of Annual General Meeting is available at www.vodafone.com/agm.

 

A condensed set of Vodafone’s financial statements and information on important events that have occurred during the financial year and their impact on the financial statements were included in Vodafone’s preliminary results announcement released on 17 May 2011.  That information, together with the information set out below, which is extracted from the 2011 Annual Report, constitute the material required by Disclosure and Transparency Rule 6.3.5 which is required to be communicated to the media in full unedited text through a Regulatory Information Service.  This announcement is not a substitute for reading the full 2011 Annual Report.  Page and note references in the text below refer to page numbers in the 2011 Annual Report and notes to the financial statements.

 

PRINCIPAL RISK FACTORS AND UNCERTAINTIES

 

The following discussion of principal risk factors and uncertainties identifies the most significant risks that may adversely affect our business, operations, liquidity, financial position or future performance. Additional risks not presently known to us, or that we currently deem less material, may also impact our business. This section should be read in conjunction with the “Forward-looking statements” on page 148 of this document.

 

Adverse macroeconomic conditions in the markets in which we operate could impact our results of operations.

 

Adverse macroeconomic conditions and deterioration in the global economic environment, such as further economic slowdown in the markets in which we operate, may lead to a reduction in the level of demand from our customers for existing and new products and services. In difficult economic conditions, consumers may seek to reduce discretionary spending by reducing their use of our products and services, including data services, or by switching to lower-cost alternatives offered by our competitors. Similarly, under these conditions the enterprise customers that we serve may delay purchasing decisions, delay full implementation of service offerings or reduce their use of our services. In addition, adverse economic conditions may lead to an increased number of our consumer and enterprise customers that are unable to pay for existing or additional services. If these events were to occur it could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.

 

The continued volatility of worldwide financial markets may have a negative impact on our access to finance.

 

Our key sources of liquidity in the foreseeable future are likely to be cash generated from operations and borrowings through long-term and short- term issuances in the capital markets as well as committed bank facilities. Due to volatility experienced in capital and credit markets around the world, new issuances of debt securities may experience decreased demand. Adverse changes in credit markets or our credit ratings could increase the cost of borrowing and banks may be unwilling

 


 

to renew credit facilities on existing terms. Any of these factors could have a negative impact on our access to finance.

 

Regulatory decisions and changes in the regulatory environment could adversely affect our business.

 

As we have ventures in a large number of geographic areas, we must comply with an extensive range of requirements that regulate and supervise the licensing, construction and operation of our telecommunications networks and services. In particular, there are agencies which regulate and supervise the allocation of frequency spectrum and which monitor and enforce regulation and competition laws which apply to the mobile telecommunications industry. Decisions by regulators regarding the granting, amendment or renewal of licences, to us or to third parties, could adversely affect our future operations in these geographic areas. In addition, other changes in the regulatory environment concerning the use of mobile phones may lead to a reduction in the usage of mobile phones or otherwise adversely affect us. Additionally, decisions by regulators and new legislation, such as those relating to international roaming charges and call termination rates, could affect the pricing for, or adversely affect the revenue from, the services we offer. Further details on the regulatory framework in certain countries and regions in which we operate, and on regulatory proceedings, can be found in “Regulation” on page 140.

 

Increased competition may reduce our market share and revenue.

 

We face intensifying competition and our ability to compete effectively will depend on, among other things, our network quality, capacity and coverage, pricing of services and equipment, quality of customer service, development of new and enhanced products and services in response to customer demands and changing technology, reach and quality of sales and distribution channels and capital resources. Competition could lead to a reduction in the rate at which we add new customers, a decrease in the size of our market share and a decline in our ARPU as customers choose to receive telecommunications services or other competing services from other providers. Examples include but are not limited to competition from internet based services and MVNOs. The focus of competition in many of our markets continues to shift from customer acquisition to customer retention as the market for mobile telecommunications has become increasingly penetrated. Customer deactivations are measured by our churn rate. There can be no assurance that we will not experience increases in churn rates, particularly as competition intensifies. An increase in churn rates could adversely affect profitability because we would experience lower revenue and additional selling costs to replace customers or recapture lost revenue. Increased competition has also led to declines in the prices we charge for our mobile services and is expected to lead to further price declines in the future. Competition could also lead to an increase in the level at which we must provide subsidies for handsets. Additionally, we could face increased competition should there be an award of additional licences in jurisdictions in which a member of our Group already has a licence.

 

Delays in the development of handsets and network compatibility and components may hinder the deployment of new technologies.

 

Our operations depend in part upon the successful deployment of continuously evolving telecommunications technologies. We use technologies from a number of vendors and make significant capital expenditure in connection with the deployment of such technologies. There can be no assurance that common standards and specifications will be achieved, that there will be inter-operability across Group and other networks, that technologies will be developed according to anticipated schedules, that they will perform according to expectations or that they will achieve commercial acceptance. The introduction of software and other network components may also be delayed. The failure of vendor performance or technology performance to meet our expectations or the failure of a technology to achieve commercial acceptance could result in additional capital expenditure by us or a reduction in our profitability.

 


 

We may experience a decline in revenue or profitability notwithstanding our efforts to increase revenue from the introduction of new services.

 

As part of our strategy we will continue to offer new services to our existing customers and seek to increase non-voice service revenue as a percentage of total service revenue. However, we may not be able to introduce these new services commercially or may experience significant delays due to problems such as the availability of new mobile devices, higher than anticipated prices of new devices or availability of new content services. In addition, even if these services are introduced in accordance with expected time schedules, there is no assurance that revenue from such services will increase ARPU or maintain profit margins.

 

Expected benefits from our cost reduction initiatives may not be realised.

 

We have entered into several cost reduction initiatives principally relating to network sharing, the outsourcing of IT application, development and maintenance, data centre consolidation, supply chain management and a business transformation programme to implement a single, integrated operating model using one enterprise resource planning (‘ERP’) system. However, there is no assurance that the full extent of the anticipated benefits will be realised in the timeline envisaged.

 

Changes in assumptions underlying the carrying value of certain Group assets could result in impairment.

 

We complete a review of the carrying value of Group assets annually, or more frequently where the circumstances require, to assess whether those carrying values can be supported by the net present value of future cash flows derived from such assets. This review examines the continued appropriateness of the assumptions in respect of highly uncertain matters upon which the valuations supporting carrying values of certain Group assets are based. This includes an assessment of discount rates and long- term growth rates, future technological developments, and timing and quantum of future capital expenditure as well as several factors which may affect revenue and profitability identified within the other risk factors in this section such as intensifying competition, pricing pressures, regulatory changes and the timing for introducing new products or services. Discount rates are in part derived from yields on government bonds, the level of which may change substantially period to period and which may be affected by political, economic and legal developments which are beyond our control. Due to our substantial carrying value of goodwill under International Financial Reporting Standards, the revision of any of these assumptions to reflect current or anticipated changes in operations or the financial condition of the Group could lead to an impairment in the carrying value of certain Group assets. While impairment does not impact reported cash flows, it does result in a non-cash charge in the consolidated income statement and thus no assurance can be given that any future impairments would not affect our reported distributable reserves and therefore our ability to make distributions to our shareholders or repurchase our shares. See “Critical accounting estimates” on page 77 and note 10 to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Our emerging market footprint may present exposure to unpredictable economic, political, regulatory, tax and legal risks.

 

Political, regulatory, economic and legal systems in emerging markets may be less predictable than in countries with more stable institutional structures. Since we operate in and are exposed to emerging markets, the value of our investments in these markets may be adversely affected by political, regulatory, economic, tax and legal developments which are beyond our control and anticipated benefits resulting from acquisitions and other investments we have made in these markets may not be achieved in the time expected or at all. For further information on legal and tax proceedings see note 28.

 

We participate in joint ventures which expose us to operational and financial risk.

 


 

We participate in a number of joint ventures, some of which we do not control. Whether or not we hold majority interests or maintain operational control in our joint ventures, our partners may have economic or business interests or goals that are inconsistent with ours, exercise their rights in a way that prohibits us from acting in a manner which we would like or they may be unable or unwilling to fulfil their obligations under the joint venture or other agreements. In particular, some of our interests in mobile licences are held through entities in which we are a significant but not a controlling owner. Under the governing documents for some of these partnerships and corporations, certain key matters such as the approval of business plans and decisions as to the timing and amount of cash distributions require the consent of our partners. In others these matters may be approved without our consent. We may enter into similar arrangements as we participate in ventures formed to pursue additional opportunities. Although we have not been materially constrained by our participation in joint ventures to date, no assurance can be given that the actions or decisions of our joint venture partners will not affect our ventures in a way that hinders our corporate objectives or reduces any anticipated cost savings or revenue enhancement resulting from these ventures.

 

Expected benefits from investment in networks, licences and new technology may not be realised.

 

We have made substantial investments in the acquisition of licences and in our mobile networks, including the roll out of 3G networks. We expect to continue to make significant investments in our mobile networks due to increased usage and the need to offer new services and greater functionality afforded by new or evolving telecommunications technologies. Accordingly, the rate of our capital expenditures in future years could remain high or exceed that which we have experienced to date. There can be no assurance that the introduction of new services will proceed according to anticipated schedules or that the level of demand for new services will justify the cost of setting up and providing new services. Failure or a delay in the completion of networks and the launch of new services, or increases in the associated costs, could have a material adverse effect on our operations.

 

Our business may be impaired by actual or perceived health risks associated with the transmission of radio waves from mobile telephones, transmitters and associated equipment.

 

Concerns have been expressed that the electromagnetic signals emitted by mobile telephone handsets and base stations may pose health risks at exposure levels below existing guideline levels and may interfere with the operation of electronic equipment. In the event of national governments responding to public concern with the imposition of more stringent exposure limits, our costs may be increased. In addition, as described under the heading “Legal proceedings” in note 28 to the consolidated financial statements, several mobile industry participants including Verizon Wireless and ourselves have had lawsuits filed against us alleging various health consequences as a result of mobile phone usage including brain cancer. While we are not aware that such health risks have been substantiated, there can be no assurance that the actual or perceived risks associated with radio wave transmission will not impair our ability to retain customers and attract new customers, reduce mobile telecommunications usage or result in further litigation. In such event, because of our strategic focus on mobile telecommunications, our business and results of operations may be more adversely affected than those of other companies in the telecommunications sector.

 

 

Our business would be adversely affected by the non-supply of equipment and support services by a major supplier.

 

Companies within the Group source network infrastructure and other equipment, as well as network-related and other significant support services, from third party suppliers. The withdrawal or removal from the market of one or more of these major third party suppliers could adversely affect our operations and could require us to make additional capital or operational expenditures.

 


 

Our business could be adversely affected by disruptions to our telecommunications networks.

 

We are dependent on the secure operation of our telecommunications networks and attacks on critical infrastructure, or disruption of our networks caused by other factors beyond our control, pose an increasing threat. As the importance of mobile communication in everyday life, as well as during times of crisis, increases and the volume of personal and business data being communicated and stored by network operators grows, organisations and individuals look to us to maintain service and protect sensitive information. Any significant interruption in our service or in our ability to protect sensitive information, whether caused by acts of terrorism, industrial action, natural disasters, political unrest or otherwise, could have a material adverse effect on our revenue and our reputation.

(1)           Conditional awards of shares were granted on 28 June 2011 by the Company. The awards have been granted in accordance with the Vodafone Global Incentive Plan (incorporating co-investment). The vesting of these awards is conditional on continued employment with the Vodafone Group, retention of co-investment and on the satisfaction of a performance condition approved by the Remuneration Committee. The performance measure is based on free cash flow performance with a multiplier that is based on comparative total shareholder return (“TSR”) performance.  The free cash flow performance is based on a three year cumulative adjusted cash flow figure. The target free cash flow level is set by reference to the Company’s three year plan and market expectations; 100% of the award will vest for target performance, rising to 200% vesting for maximum performance. The multiplier is based on the TSR of the Company over the three year performance period 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2014 relative to a peer group of five companies within the European Telecoms sector as well as one emerging market composite. There will be no increase in vesting until TSR performance exceeds median, at which point the multiplier will increase up to two on a linear basis for upper quintile performance. The maximum vesting is 400%, for maximum free cash flow performance (200%) and maximum TSR performance (multiplier of 2). For further details of the Plan, please see pages 64 and 66 of the Company’s 2011 Annual Report, available at www.vodafone.com/investor.

(2)           The Directors and other PDMRs are subject to the Company’s share ownership guidelines, which provide that they will acquire and maintain minimum levels of shareholding. The levels are four times salary for the Chief Executive, three times salary for other Board Directors and two times salary for the other PDMRs, who are members of the Executive Committee.

(3)           The Company was advised on 29 June 2011 by UBS Trustees (Jersey) Limited that on 28 June 2011 the above named Directors and PDMRs acquired an interest in the number of shares of US$0.11 3/7 each in the Company shown in column B above at the price of 163.20 pence per share.

 


 

As a result of the above, the interests in shares (excluding share options and unvested incentive shares) of the following Directors are as follows:

 

Vittorio Colao

2,307,663

 

Michel Combes

888,354

 

Andy Halford

2,341,256

 

Steve Pusey

544,733

 

 

The Company was notified of these changes on 28 June 2011.
