Following the help from the government, Vodafone Idea has been in the search for investors to raise fresh capital to pay down its debt and invest in its network after returning from the brink of bankruptcy.

While reporting the Q4 results, the company showed signs of revival as it added more than 1 m new 4G subscribers while its consolidated operating profits grew 22% aided by recent tariff hikes.

As per a report, Amazon may be interested in investing in Vodafone Idea as it remains the only major cloud services giant without a telecom partner while Vodafone Idea is the only telecom operator without investment from a major US tech company.

Over the past two and a half years, US tech giants Facebook, Google, and Microsoft have invested in the top two telecom operators in the country - Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel to strengthen their cloud offerings in India.

Vodafone Idea share price ended 4.1% higher on the BSE today.

To this, the founder said that at the underline level, their EBITDA margin is strong; it has come out at a similar level as last year. It is 8% plus for the beauty business and that can improve slightly going forward.
