Telenor's fourth-quarter earnings slightly beat expectations on Thursday as the Norwegian telecoms operator forecast continued growth in 2023 in service revenue and core profit in its Nordic business. Chief Executive Sigve Brekke said Telenor and the rest of the telecoms sector would likely be resilient in case of a global recession as consumers cut their mobile phone spending after other costs because they consider it "crucial". "You cut on other consumption long before you cut on your mobile, be it in Norway (or) Bangladesh," Brekke told Reuters.
“The quarter represents significant progress on our new strategic roadmap towards 2025. Mobile service revenues in Telenor Nordics increased by 5 percent, demonstrating the growth potential in the region. We completed the merger in Malaysia establishing CelcomDigi as the clear market leader, we agreed on the sale of 30 percent of the Norwegian fibre business, and we completed the decommissioning of the copper network in Norway.

OSLO (Reuters) -Norway's Telenor said on Friday it is exploring ways to provide support to Myanmar telecom users facing digital security risks after its exit from the Southeast Asian nation this year. Following a military coup in Myanmar in 2021, Telenor announced the sale of its business there to avoid European Union sanctions after pressure from the junta to activate intercept surveillance technology. Telenor completed the exit despite criticism from employees and activists who said the handover could put the data of 18 million people within reach of the ruling military.
OSLO (Reuters) -Telenor's third-quarter core earnings came in higher than estimated due to a one-off gain in Pakistan, the Norwegian telecoms operator said on Wednesday, and also reiterated that it expects its full-year profit to be in line with 2021 levels. The operator, which has about 175 million customers in eight countries across the Nordic region and Asia, issued a profit warning for 2022 last month, citing spiralling energy costs. "For the group, high energy prices, especially in Norway, Denmark and Pakistan, continue to be a headwind," Chief Executive Officer Sigve Brekke said in a statement on Wednesday.
“We see positive trends for mobile service revenues in the Nordic region, with a growth of 4 percent in the third quarter”, says Sigve Brekke, President and CEO of Telenor Group. For the Group, high energy prices, especially in Norway, Denmark, and Pakistan, continue to be a headwind. However, the negative effects are, this quarter, countered by a reversal of sim tax provision in Pakistan, leading to 2.5 percent EBITDA growth. Free cash flow came in at NOK 5 billion, implying a cash generation s
(Fornebu 7 September 2022) Telenor enters into a transaction supporting future investments in Norway's telecom infrastructure. Earlier this year, Telenor initiated a process of evaluating the establishment of a passive fibre infrastructure ownership company with a minority co-investor.

OSLO (Reuters) -Norway's Telenor on Friday said it had agreed to sell a 30% stake in its Norwegian fibre broadband unit for 10.8 billion crowns ($1.0 billion) to a consortium led by U.S. investment company KKR and pension firm Oslo Pensjonsforsikring. Around 30% of Telenor's proceeds will be used for share buybacks, the group said in a statement. Telenor's shares, which had been trading at 10-year lows amid sluggish growth and inflation eroding its margins, rose 4.4% in early trade.

OSLO (Reuters) -Norway's Telenor warned on Tuesday that spiralling energy prices made it increasingly difficult to achieve its profit target and announced a restructuring of its Nordic business and a potential listing of its Asian unit. "The energy price development in the last couple of months makes it increasingly difficult to reach the guiding of flat EBITDA in 2022," Telenor said in a statement, referring to its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation. Telenor, which has 175 million customers in eight countries across the Nordic region and Asia, in recent years sought to cut costs and boost its cash flow to make room for higher dividends and 5G investments.
