With all these impacts the loss for the half year came in at €7.8 billion, including the further impact of a €3.4 billion loss on the disposal of Vodafone India. Impairments of €3.5 billion in Spain, Romania and Vodafone Idea, added to the company’s woes. Some of its customers may say that this is the year when at last Vodaphone got its comeuppance.
