Iliad posts 7% revenue growth in Q1 on slower equipment sales, service revenue up 10%

Tuesday 12 May 2020 | 10:29 CET | News
Iliad generated group revenues of EUR 1.38 billion in the three months to March, up 6.9 percent year-on-year (+11.0% in Q4). The quarter was impacted by a sharp decline in equipment sales, down 38.6 percent to EUR 45 million, partly reflecting an unfavourable comparison effect with Q1 2019, when the commercialisation of the premium Freebox Delta STB gained momentum in France. Group service revenues rose 9.6 percent to reach EUR 1.34 billion, helped by ongoing mobile ARPU growth in France and customer gains in Italy.
