Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) and Vodafone Group Plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VOD) advisers didn’t rest this weekend in their efforts to put together the final pieces of a major contract. A project of almost $130 billion may be announced tomorrow, where Verizon would buy Vodafone. It isn’t easy to complete a deal that has doomed the mixture of Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX) and AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) having amazing shares, cash payment and the action to reduce Vodafone’s tax charges.

This deal is a tax free deal as Vodafone would have to pay almost $5 billion only. It means it is a freedom under U.K. law to have no tax charges at home. New York corporate-tax adviser Robert Willens said that the value of other European possessions has crashed incidentally because this deal gives a bill of about $3.5 billion to $4 billion that is easily manageable.

The drawbacks of the final talks have resolved now due to debates among Verizon and Vodafone and without any joint custody of their business, both companies are linked firmly. The index data of Bank of America Merrill Lynch showed the borrowing costs for the Verizon Company have dropped by 1.2 percent to 1.8 percent and then close to a record low 1.4 percent.

For Verizon Communications (VZ), complete control of the biggest U.S. wireless carrier will give an entree to $21.8 billion which will help in enhancing its network as it has to face a tough competition from Sprint Corp.  The success of this contract will be a symbol of improved confidence between chief executive officers and boards and the bankers can earn more than $240 million.

The deal makers have had a very busy summer due to these contracts and the communication sectors have gotten $351 billion for these deals. That is why the co-chair of the private equity group, Robert Rakison, said that The Vodafone-Verizon deal is a sign of an establishing market.

Vodafone Group Plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VOD) shares moved up 1.73% to $32.35 in last session and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) shares were off -0.92% to $47.38 on Friday.
