Veon raises dividend as H1 results track ahead of FY growth outlook

Thursday 1 August 2019 | 08:42 CET | News
Veon reported second-quarter results ahead of its full-year outlook. Organic revenues rose 7.5 percent, and adjusted EBITDA was up 11.1 percent, compared to a forecast for low single-digit growth in revenue and low to mid single-digit growth in EBITDA. The growth was supported mainly by the operations in Pakistan and Ukraine, offsetting flat results in Russia and declines in Algeria and Uzbekistan.
