AT&T Q1 profits fall on acquisition costs, flat revenues

Thursday 23 April 2015 | 07:38 CET | News
AT&T reported nearly flat revenues for the first quarter, due to tough competition in the mobile market and the sale of some of its wireline activities. Revenues were up just 0.3 percent year-on-year to USD 32.6 billion. If the divested Connecticut wireline properties are excluded, revenues rose 1.2 percent. Operating profit fell to USD 5.5 billion from USD 6.3 billion a year ago, hurt by a rise in costs for reducing staff and merger and integration expenses. Net profit dropped to USD 3.2 billion or USD 0.61 per diluted share, compared to USD 3.7 billion or USD 0.70 per share in the year-ago
