What make China Mobile so Precious

China Mobile Limited (the "Company", and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") was incorporated in Hong Kong on 3 September 1997. The Company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange and The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited on 22 October 1997 and 23 October 1997, respectively. The Company was admitted as a constituent stock of the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong on 27 January 1998. As the leading mobile services provider in China, the Group boasts the world's largest unified, contiguous all-digital mobile network and the world's largest mobile subscriber base. In 2006, the Company was once again selected as one of the "FT Global 500" by Financial Times, and the "The World's 2000 Biggest Public Companies" by Forbes magazine. Currently, the Company's corporate credit rating is A/Outlook Stable by Standard and Poor's and A2/Positive Outlook by Moody's (respectively equivalent to China's sovereign credit rating).
The Company operates nationwide mobile telecommunications networks in all 31 provinces, autonomous regions and directly-administered municipalities in Mainland China and in Hong Kong SAR through these thirty-two subsidiaries.
As of 31 December 2006, the Group had an aggregate staff of 111,998 and an aggregate mobile telecommunications subscriber base of over 301.2 million, and enjoyed a market share of approximately 67.5 per cent. in Mainland China. The Group's GSM global roaming services covered 219 countries and regions and its GPRS roaming services covered 138 countries and regions.
The Company's majority shareholder is China Mobile (Hong Kong) Group Limited, which, as of 31 December 2006, indirectly held an equity interest of approximately 74.57 per cent. of the Company through a wholly-owned subsidiary, China Mobile Hong Kong (BVI) Limited. The remaining equity interest of approximately 25.43 per cent. of the Company was held by public investors.

Major Reasons

~Number of Subscriber reach 332 million in China untill June 2007.

~JP Morgan and UBS upgraded China Mobile From hold to buy

~China is going to announce the first 3G license holder by end of this year.(90% is going to China Mobile)

In Conclusion

A Gigantic company with a EPS 22.5rmb and the world largest mobile operating company, it is difficult for CM to plunge. So there is no reason for this counter to go wrong. Remember China Goverment is soon to announce it 1st 3G licence to China Mobile. Why must it issue to CM ? the answer is if not China Mobile then who else ???
