AT&T is still interested in Vodafone

AT&T Inc. remains interested in a potential acquisition of Vodafone Group Plc even after giving up the option to bid for the U.K. carrier for six months, according to people familiar with the situation.

The U.S. phone company continues to study a Vodafone takeover, and made a public announcement Jan. 27 to satisfy strict British stock-market regulations designed to limit merger speculation, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing a private matter. AT&T will probably need to wait out the deadline before making an offer, they said, although it can be waived with the consent of Vodafone’s board.
