Liberty Global revenue growth slows to 1.9% in Q3 after falls in Belgium, Switzerland

Wednesday 7 November 2018 | 23:44 CET | News
Liberty Global reported third-quarter revenues from continuing operations up 1.9 percent on an organic basis to USD 3.0 billion, as growth at Virgin Media in the UK helped offset declines in Belgium and Switzerland. Operating cash flow was up 5.2 percent to USD 1.3 billion in Q3, and the cable group said it still expects growth over the full year to reach 4 percent, excluding the activities it plans to sell to Vodafone.
