United Internet sees sales, EBITDA rise in Q3 after acquisitions

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 12:22 CET | News
Germany's United Internet posted improvements in third-quarter results, driven by recent acquisitions. Sales increased 11.3 percent to EUR 1.054 billion, helped by the consolidation of the Strato and ProfitBricks acquisitions (EUR 32.8 million) and successful closing of the merger with Drillisch (EUR 54.6 million) in September. This was partly offset by negative currency effects (EUR -2.6 million) and the negative effects of changes in regulations like the end of roaming fees in the EU (EUR -12.7 million).
