Verizon now owns all of Verizon Wireless; completes $130 billion buy of Vodafone stake

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Verizon on Friday completed its $130 billion deal to take over all of Verizon Wireless.

New York-based Verizon Communications Inc. has said that owning all of its wireless unit would give it greater flexibility to invest in new technologies.

It acquired the 45 per cent stake in its wireless division from Vodafone Group PLC, issuing about 1.27 billion shares of common stock to the British cellphone carrier's shareholders.

Both companies' shareholders approved the transaction last month.

Verizon's stock fell 56 cents to $47.56 in midday trading Friday.
