Liberty Global revenue growth slows to 3% in Q4

Friday 13 February 2015 | 08:44 CET | News
Liberty Global reported fourth-quarter revenues up 3 percent year-on-year to USD 4.6 billion, as its takeover of Dutch operator Ziggo in November helped offset negative currency effects. The cable company also added 315,000 revenue-generating units on an organic basis in the quarter, for a total 55.9 million at year-end. The growth came mainly from broadband services, with 240,000 subscribers added in the three months and 905,000 in the past year, for a total 17.3 million. Liberty lost 35,000 TV subscribers in Q4 and 223,000 in the full year, slowing the rate of decline to finish the year
