EQS-News: Mobile TeleSystems PJSC: Q3 2019 Financial & Operating Results
Alexey Kornya, President & CEO, commented on the results:
"I am happy to report that in Q3 we successfully maintained our momentum and delivered another quarter of solid results. Total Group revenue was up 4.6% year-over-year, reaching 133.9 billion rubles, with a notable top-line contribution from MTS Bank. Moreover, we saw OIBDA growth accelerate to 5.9% year-over-year, with OIBDA standing at 62.8 billion rubles for the quarter.
Given our strong year-to-date results and improved visibility toward our full-year performance, we feel confident in raising our 2019 guidance to 6-7% growth in revenue and 4-5% growth in OIBDA.
Alongside continued solid operational performance, we also delivered meaningful progress on our strategic initiatives to expand beyond connectivity and strengthen our position as a leading provider of digital services. In August, we had multiple appointments to key roles within our re-aligned, matrix-based organizational structure, strengthening our business verticals and enabling functions, as well as attracting new talent into growth areas. Going forward, I have full confidence in both our team and our strategy.
Heading into the final stretch of the year, we are well-positioned to deliver a strong close to 2019 for the benefit of our shareholders."
