Estonian Telecom surpassed prognosis
With the 4Q results that were published yesterday, Estonian Telecom surpassed the expectations of analysts. In the last quarter of the year the telecom company demonstrated the biggest growth of turnover in a year and a half 7.4%. Growth of turnover was supported by IT company MicroLink that was joined to Elion. Telecom is consolidating the revenues of MicroLink as of November. Fast growth of internet revenues supported the increase of fixed connection. The overall profit of 2005 amounted EEK 1.093 billion (EEK 7.92 per share), having been bigger by tenth compared to last year. Although the 4Q profit was 5% less than last year it is not worrying as the 4Q profit in 2004 was influenced by a financial income in value of EEK 43 million from sale of Eltel Group.
