Telenor offers higher dividend after drop in profit in 2019, sees return to underlying EBITDA growth in 2020

Wednesday 29 January 2020 | 08:52 CET | News
Telenor has increased its dividend by 4 percent to NOK 8.7 per share, despite a drop in net profit over the past year due to divestments and provisions. Cash flow also turned negative after the acquisition of DNA in Finland. Underlying EBITDA fell 2.6 percent, in line with its outlook, and Telenor said it aims to return the figure to growth of 2-4 percent in the new year. Organic revenue growth is estimated flat to 2 percent higher this year, after a 1.2 percent rise in 2019.
