Elisa Q4 results boosted by Anvia deal, mobile revenue

Friday 27 January 2017 | 13:08 CET | News
Finnish company Elisa said its revenues and earnings improved in 2016 thanks to growth in the mobile service revenue and investments in the productivity of its operations. The acquisition of Anvia's telecom, IT and entertainment services also had a positive impact. Revenue in the fourth quarter rose to EUR 434 million from EUR 404 million a year earlier. Mobile service revenue increased by 3.4 percent to EUR 194 million from EUR 188 million in the same quarter a year earlier, but its number of mobile subscriptions decreased by 36,600 during the quarter.
