Aug 31 15
iliad announced consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2015. For the period the company reported profit for the period was EUR 162.9 million compared to EUR 139.9 million a year ago. Revenues were EUR 2,159.9 million compared to EUR 2,019.6 million a year ago. This solid showing was primarily driven by two factors, the expansion of the Mobile business, and particularly the sharp 23% increase in services revenues, although this positive effect was partially offset by a decline in sales of phones due to a more selective sales policy and a repositioning of the range of phones offered and, to a lesser extent, the slight 0.5% increase in revenues generated by the Landline business. Consolidated EBITDA surged by more than 16% to EUR 725 million in first-half 2015 and EBITDA margin was also up year on year, coming in nearly three percentage points higher at 33.6%. This wider margin was notably due to the strong performance of the Landline business and the higher weighting of mobile services within consolidated revenues. The main factors affecting EBITDA during the period were better mobile network coverage, a wider EBITDA margin for the Mobile business, a solid EBITDA margin for the Landline business, ongoing measures to optimize the Group's landline networks and critical mass reached, with 16% market share for the Mobile business. Net debt was EUR 1,162 million. This strong rise in profitability was driven by favorable developments in the Mobile business and the economies of scale achieved in terms of the Group's fixed cost base. The year-on-year increase in EBITDA drove up profit for the period by 16% to almost 163 million. Capital spending in the first half of 2015 totaled EUR 613 million. Consolidated cash flows from operations were EUR 721.2 million against EUR 614.9 million a year ago. Profit from ordinary activities was EUR 329.7 million compared to EUR 281.4 million a year ago.
