Unitymedia subscriber growth strengthens in Q2, revenues up 3.3%

Thursday 9 August 2018 | 08:42 CET | News
German cable operator Unitymedia reported higher second-quarter results, as growth in the broadband and B2B markets helped offset a drop in TV customers and carriage fees after its analogue shutdown. Revenues rose 3.3 percent to EUR 611 million, and adjusted EBITDA improved 5.0 percent to EUR 395 million. The net profit more than doubled, to EUR 32.7 million from 14.7 million a year earlier, helped by lower financing costs.
