Telia sees drop in underlying Q1 results after 'soft start' to 2019

Thursday 25 April 2019 | 09:20 CET | News
Telia reported a "soft start" to 2019 with a decline in underlying results. Organic revenues fell 3 percent, hurt by declines in the legacy Swedish business, falling mobile customer base in Norway and termination rate cuts in Finland. The operator still maintained its full-year outlook, saying its efforts to turn around the results should pay off in the course of 2019.
