Orange restores dividend as fibre expansion supports Q3 sales growth

Thursday 29 October 2020 | 09:45 CET | News
Orange has confirmed a stable dividend for 2020, after reporting a return to sales growth in the third quarter. Growth in convergent offers and wholesale fibre in France and continued expansion in Africa and the Middle East supported the higher sales in Q3, offsetting the impact of the Covid-19 crisis, which hurt roaming and handset sales. Orange still expects a small drop in EBITDA this year, but a delay in capex means cash flow will be unaffected, supporting its dividend plans.
