Telia Company’s Capital Market Day 2016
Today Telia Company hosts its 2016 Capital Market Day at the new head office in Solna, Stockholm. Presentations include updates on group strategy and the financials together with a special section on the Swedish operations. The full-year 2016 outlook is reiterated.
“We are well on track on our change journey towards becoming a New Generation Telco and to fully realize our potential in the Nordic & Baltic region, where we aim to explore the opportunities opening up in a fully digitalized society. We have leading positions in many segments in these countries and while we aim to improve our position we are committed to giving more to our customers over the coming years. We are also well on track in our ambition to reduce our presence in region Eurasia and to divest non-core assets. Our ambition remains firm to restore ordinary corporate governance in Turkcell and to ensure we create maximum value in our financial holding in MegaFon. Our balance sheet remains solid and we are committed to our dividend and leverage target, still with a clear ambition to do value creative M&A”, says Johan Dennelind, president and CEO of Telia Company.
The event starts at 13.00 CET and a link to the webcast and presentation will then be available at www.teliacompany.com.
Telia Company reiterates its full-year guidance 2016:
“EBITDA from continuing operations, excluding non-recurring items, in local currencies, excluding acquisitions and disposals, is expected to be in line or slightly above the level in 2015. 2016 is the peak year of the increased investments in fiber, mobile coverage and transformation. CAPEX for continuing operations, excluding license and spectrum fees, is expected to be SEK 14-15 billion. Currency fluctuations may impact the reported number in Swedish krona. For the fiscal year 2016, to be paid in 2017, the ambition is to distribute a minimum of SEK 2 per share.”
