Orange, France’s biggest telecoms operator, said its first-quarter core operating profit grew 1%, as high growth from its Africa and Middle-East operations offset further declines in sales in Spain and its home country.
Telecoms operator earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization after leases rose to 2.62 billion euros. ($2.81 billion) It was for the quarter that ended March 31.
This was in line with the average of 13 analyst estimates the company has compiled. In the estimates, revenues were up 0.7% to 10.6 billion euros.
Orange said it maintained all its full-year targets for 2022, including growth in core operating profits between 2.5% and 3%.
It also confirmed its target of organic cash flow from telecom activities of at least 3.5 billion euros next year.
