Solid growth in third quarter 2017 revenue and adjusted EBITDA. Record mobile sales in France


On the publication of the results for the first nine months of 2017, Stéphane Richard, Chairman and CEO of the Orange Group, commented:

“This quarter demonstrates very good momentum at Orange, supported more than ever by investment in customer experience and our networks.
We attracted nearly half a million mobile contract customers and 321,000 fibre customers in France and the Europe segment in the past three months.
Despite new roaming regulation in Europe, we delivered revenue growth for the ninth consecutive quarter and adjusted EBITDA growth of 2.1%.
Excluding regulatory changes,adjusted EBITDA rose 4.4%.
Orange France also confirmed its return to growth and had a particularly strong third quarter in mobile, with 320,000 net additions – its best performance since 2008.
It was the same story in fibre, where 40% growth enabled us to reach more than 1.8 million customers.
The continuing excellent performance in Spain and Romania, along with the return to growth in Africa & the Middle East, completed a positive picture for Orange as a whole this quarter.
Finally, I am delighted that we will launch Orange Bank next week. I can’t wait for customers to benefit from this new and unique offer.
These results have led us to confirm our outlook for 2017. We will provide more detail of our ambitious strategy to create value in the years ahead at an Investor Day on 7 December.”
