Selling US operations for India was always mad
Like other businesses where a CEO with vested interests was allowed by the board to spend the companies resources on what they wanted, they divested their high value assets to buy into a 3rd world operation with obvious low returns.
I worked for Vodafone and watched them steal capital from all of the growing 1st world markets, avoid diversifying and ignoring the value in their brand.
It was sad as we had all worked so long and hard to build it in the first place.
I bet they all paid themselves bonuses, the management should all hang their heads in shame and fall on their swords, but they won't, they will keep bleeding it until it becomes a corpse.
