Etisalat Misr loses customers, grows revenues in 2018

Thursday 21 February 2019 | 15:49 CET | News
Egyptian mobile operator Etisalat Misr ended 2018 with 27.5 million customers, down slightly from 27.8 million in Q3 and 32.2 million a year earlier, due mainly to regulatory restrictions limiting sales, parent company Etisalat said. Annual revenues were still up 13 percent to AED 2.8.1 billion, and the EBITDA margin rose to 41 percent from 40 percent in 2017, helped by more customers on postpaid contracts.
