So Dodo is now as dead as a dodo as a company, and eaten by M2, but its brand lives on...

Zombie Dodo?

Hey all, hot off the desk of the awesome people at Commsday (which is why you should subscribe!)

M2 to buy Dodo, Eftel for A$248 million

M2 Telecommunications has announced to the Australian Stock Exchange that it will acquire Dodo Australia for $203.9 million on a debt-free and cash-free basis. At the same time it has also made an off-market takeover offer for wholesale carrier Eftel at an offer price of $0.3581 per share; the offer would value Eftel at just over $44 million, inclusive of $5.6m net debt.  
M2 management said it expects the acquisitions to contribute in excess of $400m revenue and $50m EBITDA in FY14. Among the reasons cited for the acquisitions were that they would deliver M2 a nationally recognised low cost brand via Dodo that is well positioned to grow market share, as well as established capability in power and gas.
