Orange Belgium Q4: high underlying growth and challenger strategy

Friday 9 February 2018 | 09:49 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Orange Belgium announced what appeared to be weak results for the fourth quarter, with sales down 1.3 percent, over 20 percent lower EBITDA and a net loss. However, on an underlying basis, the quarter was not nearly so bad. While investors focused on the bottom line and sent the share price down 10 percent, the company is showing growth at its core. The latest announcements from Orange suggest the company is embracing a challenger strategy similar to T-Mobile Netherlands.
