Eltel postpones the publishing of the Group’s fourth quarter and full-year 2016 interim report

Eltel has decided to postpone the publishing of the Group’s fourth quarter and full-year 2016 interim report. The former publishing date Friday 10 February 2016 has been changed to Wednesday 22 February 2017 at 8.00 CET.

Last week, Eltel revised its guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2016 (see press release on 27 January 2017). Simultaneously a project audit was initiated with the objective of performing a comprehensive investigation to verify and quantify risks and costs in selected ongoing projects in the power transmission business mainly in Africa. The audit is estimated to take a few weeks, hence the postponement of the report as the Group’s operative EBITA might depend on the outcome of the audit.
