Cogeco lifts revenues 13% in Q3, driven by broadband services in US, Canada

Thursday 12 July 2018 | 09:27 CET | News
The adjusted EBITDA advanced 13 percent to CAD 287.3 million while the net profit attributable to shareholders fell to CAD 61.26 million from 76.20 million the year earlier, with diluted earnings per share going to CAD 1.23 from 1.54. Cogeco attributed the decline to increases in depreciation and amortisation and other financial expenses, partially offset by the higher adjusted EBITDA and lower income taxes.
