posted on 02/11/2016: 1265 views



Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company, du, yesterday published its financial results for the third quarter of 2016, showing a 2.9% rise in revenue to AED3.14 billion. Net profit before royalty rose 2.4% to AED 995.1 million.

Commenting on the results, Osman Sultan, du's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our consistent focus on improving the entire customer experience, while providing the right mix of products and services to the market, has resulted in a steady performance during the quarter. Revenue and EBITDA [earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation] remain at healthy levels and free cash flow is robust, despite an increase in the amount of royalty paid to the government. A 10.9% increase in postpaid mobile customers during the quarter shows our commitment to ‘quality' growth remains intact.

"du is an enabler of the economic development of the UAE as well as a facilitator of communication between the Emirates and the rest of the world. We are proud to support residents and citizens of the UAE, as well as those who travel here, to communicate with each other and their families as well as do business. This quarter, du reduced roaming rates during Hajj, expanded its retail network and continued to create innovative tools for business customers with the launch of du's Enterprise Mobility Management Solutions.

"As demand for digital services and data continues to grow significantly, the challenge for the entire telecommunications industry is finding ways to better monetise this structural shift. Nevertheless, as we move towards becoming a truly integrated digital enabler, we remain focused on delivering more innovative data solutions for our customers and continue to see data and digital services, as well as managed services, as key areas of growth for our business.

"In this fast-evolving digital world we continue to align our business with the UAE's Smart Government initiative in accordance with Vision 2021. As a strategic partner we are particularly excited to help promote the smart future agenda, and through new-to-market innovation we have a prominent role to play in establishing Dubai as the Smartest City of the future." - Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/economics/1395302084331.html
