Vodafone Plans Deals

PARIS -- Vodafone Airtouch PLC, embroiled in a battle to seize control of Mannesmann AG, is currently working on other big deals, the company's chief executive said Sunday.

In an interview published in French daily Le Figaro on Monday, Vodafone chief Chris Gent was asked whether European consolidation in the telecommunications and Internet sectors would accelerate following last week's America Online-Time Warner merger.

"We are working on other deals with big companies," Gent replied. "Other significant deals are on the way."
