Mobilink Announces Earnings Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2014

Mobilink announced earnings results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014. For the quarter, the company saw its revenue decrease 8% year-on-year, affected by strong competition on the back of increased network capacity as well as unfavorable macro-economic situation. EBITDA also declined by 16% year-on-year, negatively impacted by higher customer associated cost and higher tax absorption. Capital expenditure increased to USD 110 million due to the network modernization project and the 3G rollout.
