The Podcast: Ericsson, M&A and Twitter

Both Iain and Scott were carrying bugs when this was recorded but it will take more than that to keep them from their podding duties. They start by reflecting on Ericsson’s quarterly earnings announcement, specifically concerning the trouble the company is in regarding its historical activities in Iraq. Rumours of a Vodafone UK acquisition yield a chat about telco M&A before they conclude with the then breaking news of Elon Musk bidding to buy the whole of Twitter.

    Good news, I’m perfectly prepared to talk sh*t if I come on the pod!

    The US can audit any company listed on US stock exchanges and this is why Ericsson has to answer to the SEC. It’s all apart of SOX compliance, which was a big thing at E/// after the last scandal

      Fair enough but that seems like a disincentive to list in the US to me.
