Telia maintains dividend after growth in underlying EBITDA, cash flow in 2018

Friday 25 January 2019 | 07:31 CET | News
Telia Company reported fourth-quarter sales up 4.9 percent to SEK 22.21 billion, helped by its takeover of Get and TDC's activities in Norway from October. Service revenues in local currencies, excluding acquisitions and disposals, declined 2.5 percent, as market conditions remained difficult in its biggest market Sweden, offsetting growth in other countries. Adjusted EBITDA rose 3.3 percent to SEK 6.74 billion but was down 5.5 percent in local currencies, after adjusting for acquisitions and disposals.
