Tele2 sees quarterly revenue decline

By

Swedish mobile operator group Tele2 suffered a decline in revenue of 1% to 7.2 billion krona (A$1.2 billion) in the first quarter of 2019.

But, despite the quarterly decline in organic end-user service revenue, Tele2 chief executive Anders Nilsson said that in the first quarter, the company had started laying the foundation for future growth.

“We launched Com Hem mobile as a new growth driver and continued to see early progress on our FMC strategy with 45,000 customers now on FMC-offers,” Nilsson said.

“We are on track to reach our full year guidance with flat end-user service revenue and strong growth in underlying EBITDA excluding IFRS 16.

“This is largely driven by the integration and cost restructuring process which is well under way.”

Tele2 lists the key quarterly results as:

  • Revenue of SEK 7.2 billion (5.4), representing organic decline of -1%;
  • End-user service revenue of SEK 5.3 billion, stable on an organic basis;
  • Organic growth of 8% in underlying EBITDA excluding IFRS 16 for the Group;
  • Organic growth of 5% in underlying EBITDA excluding IFRS 16 in Sweden, mainly driven by initial synergies from the Com Hem merger;
  • Profit after financial items (EBT) was SEK 1.0 billion (0.8);
  • Earnings per share after dilution was SEK 1.11 (1.24);
  • Cost synergies reached an annualised run rate of SEK 300 million at the end of Q1; and
  • Com Hem mobile was launched during the quarter.
