America Movil net profit down 78% in Q4 on forex effects

Wednesday 11 February 2015 | 08:02 CET | News
America Movil reported fourth-quarter net profit down 77.8 percent from a year earlier to MXN 3.612 bilion, hurt by fluctuations in exchange rates. EBITDA was also down 0.7 percent to MXN 67.67 billion, and EBIT dropped 5.2 percent to MXN 33.63 billion due to higher deprciation and amortisation charges. Pro forma for the acquisition of Telekom Austria, revenues rose 2.7 percent year-on-year to MXN 229.3 billion. At constant exchange rates, service revenue growth slowed to 3.2 percent, as regulatory cuts in interconnection rates in markets such as Mexico and Brazil impacted voice revenues.
