A record start to 2021
A record start to 2021
Luxembourg, April 29, 2021 – Millicom is pleased to announce its first quarter 2021 results. Please find below links to the Q1 2021 Earnings Release, and IAS 34 Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Millicom Chief Executive Officer Mauricio Ramos commented:
“Our operational focus and strategic investments over the past year are paying off. After an incredibly strong Q1, we now have more customers, and we are generating more revenue, more EBITDA and more OCF than we did one year ago, before the start of the pandemic. We did not just recover; we are now above pre-COVID levels on most of our operational and financial KPIs.
During the quarter, we added 166,000 customers in Home, by far our best quarterly result ever, and we added 1.1 million customers in Mobile, our strongest Q1 performance in a decade. As a result, service revenue, EBITDA and OCF accelerated in Q1, and the quarter ended on a very positive note, with Latam service revenue growth exceeding 5.5% in March.
Strategically, we announced that we have signed agreements to dispose of our remaining operations in Africa. The Tanzania sale was the culmination of a structured and competitive process with multiple bidders. We are very pleased with the outcome, and plan to use the proceeds to reduce our net debt. Our strong Q1 and these disposals give us increased flexibility to resume share buybacks later this year."
