Europe's Top Telcos Stage Recovery

Europe's telecoms industry staged something of a recovery in 2019. The collective net cash flow generated by the operating activities of the big five telcos leapt to 69 billion euros up from 59 billion euros in 2018.  Deutsche Telekom led the way, while Telef√≥nica, Orange, Vodafone  and Telecom Italia also saw an upturn in cash generation.

The aggregate operating income, net profit and return on capital employed of the big five also rose, but the industry is likely to remain under financial pressure in 2020 as the COVID-19 crisis hits enterprise revenues and telcos vie for leadership in 5G.

Pringle Media has just published a 60 page report tracking and comparing the key financial metrics of these five major telcos over the past decade: Screen shots of eight sample pages below.

Note, the Vodafone figures for the fourth quarter of 2019 have now been updated, as the company has now reported on that period.

If you would like to purchase a PDF copy of the report, priced at 100 euros for a company-wide license, please send an email to pringled@btinternet.com
