Telefonica underlying sales down 1.6%, net profit improves

Wednesday 8 May 2013 | 08:47 CET | News
Telefonica reported first-quarter revenues down 8.8 percent year-on-year to EUR 14.14 billion, hurt by exchange rate effects and divestments. On an organic basis, revenues fell just 1.6 percent, mainly due to cuts in termination rates. Latin America posted organic growth of 6.8 percent for revenues of EUR 7.23 billion, while Europe recorded a drop of 10.5 percent to EUR 6.68 billion. Group OIBDA fell 10.1 percent to EUR 4.57 billion and was down 0.1 percent on an organic basis, while net profit improved to EUR 902 million from EUR 748 million a year earlier, thanks to lower interest costs.
