This would see Vodafone's 45% stake in Verizon back in its own hands. Verizon will finance half of the deal with bonds and bank loans, with the other half of the deal seeing suitcases filled with cash being handed over. The Wall Street Journal has chimed in, stating that the deal was finalized behind closed doors, and we should expect an official announcement on Monday morning.
