Turkcell Expects 330 Million Liras 4th-Quarter Profit

(Corrects to say 263 million liras estimate for costs at Belarus unit is no longer valid.)

Feb. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Turkcell Group expects consolidated net income of 330 million liras ($188.1 million) in the fourth quarter, said Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri AS, the country’s biggest mobile phone company.

Previous guidance for currency losses of 263 million liras at Belarus unit BeST is no longer valid, Turkcell said in a filing with the Istanbul Stock Exchange today.

Turkcell shares rose 1.7 percent to 9.76 liras at 5:30 p.m. on the exchange today.
