Vodafone Had a Modest Sales Increase of 1.1 percent
The effects of the alteration that were made in the mobile Termination Rates (MTRs) and the effect of the poor confidence of the users opting out of the bundle usage had been responsible for Vodafone revealing a humble 1.1% hike in sales in their Q3 sales proceeds of 1.267 million pounds.
The mobile operator stated that the amount which they had collected in the three months from October to December 31st of 2011 were counter balanced by a good sales balance in the same period in 2010. The increase in sales was instigated by endeavour and increase in information. The data revenue grew by 13.2% to 220 million pounds as a consequence of greater smartphone penetration and the hike in the sale of the number of mobile phones that were sold with a data bundle. Vodafone stated that throughout Europe the penetration of smartphones had gone up by 3.1% which the company attributed to starting of incorporated facilities with mobile products like One Net.
A representative of Vodafone on UK stated that doing away with effects of the alterations to the MTRs would have given them increased revenue of 4.8%.
Vodafone said that prepaid connections were as yet the challenge with a total number of customers that came down by thousand to 19.3 million. Nevertheless the operator stated that they had got 174,000 contact users in the three months, which a representative said was due to the iPhone 4S. As of now prepaid consumers stand at 47.3% of their total number of clients.
Comparatively the average collection per piece came down a wee bit from 2010 when it was 21.70% to 21.40%, while the prepaid ARPU dropped to 6.20 pounds from 6.90 pounds and contract customer revenue fell to 35.20 pounds from 37.10 pounds.
The total revenue for the UK contract was 18% while the prepaid client revenue was 55.8% which resulted in total customer revenue of 35.9%.
In all divisions of the Vodafone services, the income came up 0.9% to 10.61 billion pounds or you could say 3.1% leaving out the MTR deductions. The firm stated that the financial slowdown that southern Europe was going through seemed to be a challenge for the operator. Group collection had dropped 2.3% to 11.6 billion pounds. The firm stated that the adjusted running profit for that year was anticipated to be between 11.4 billion pounds and 11.8 billion pounds that was what was forecast in 2011 November.
Vittorio Clolao, the Vodafone Group CEO stated that they were still making advances in the main areas like data, endeavour, and the up and coming markets. Though the economic situation in southern Europe was worsening during the three months, on the whole their wide geographic combination was providing a good performance. Their better perception of values good generation of cash and a robust balance sheet gave them the assurance that they would carry on doing well.
