Postpaid mobile churn remains low at 1.2% in Q2 despite impact of auto switching; fixed churn at 1.3% in Q2 down from 1.6% in prior year
Reported revenue £11,467m, down 1%1 mainly reflecting the impact of regulation, declines in legacy products, and strategically reducing low margin business

Net cash inflow from operating activities of £2,173m; normalised free cash flow2 of £604m, down 38% due to increased capital expenditure, higher interest and tax payments, partially offset by one-off cash flows
Capital expenditure £1,882m. Up £225m excluding BDUK grant funding deferral, driven by increased network investment
Net debt2 increased primarily due to implementation of IFRS 16, £6.1bn, and net business cash outflows, £1.2bn

Reported revenue £17,246m and adjusted revenue £17,192m, both down 2% primarily due to ongoing headwinds from regulation, competition and legacy product declines
Reported profit before tax of £1,911m; adjusted EBITDA £5,900m, down 3%, due to the fall in revenue, higher spectrum fees, investment in customer experience and higher operating costs in Openreach
Normalised free cash flow of £1,000m, down 42% due to increased cash capital expenditure, deposit for UEFA club football rights, higher interest and tax payments and working capital, partially offset by one-off cash flows
Capital expenditure £2,877m. Up £251m excluding BDUK funding deferral, driven by fixed and mobile network investment
Overall financial outlook maintained; we expect normalised free cash flow, for timing reasons, to be in the lower half of the £1.9bn - £2.1bn full year guidance range
¿Nadie comenta la noticia de hoy? Han cancelado el dividendo para 2 años y la cotización cae un 9%
alguien que la lleve o la lleve más seguida ¿momento de entrada?
No he mirado nada, pero me resulta dificil que una teleco tenga problemas en el covid cuando realmente es todavía mas necesaria su labor.
Creo que nadie ha comentado la noticia porque los muertos del armario se suelen empujar bien al fondo y ya no dan ni penas ni alegrías. Se almacenan allí atrás, se asume el error y desaparecen del radar diario. Mal hecho pero pasa mucho.
Pues malas noticias. Ni crecimiento ni dividendo.
Estando T a estos precios, ni por asomo valoraría comprar BT, ya puestos a hablar de telecos. Y las Pacofónicas mejor ni mentarlas
Dos añitos se ha pasado esta para volver a repartir dividendos. De momento ha anunciado el pago de 2,31 peniques en febrero, la mitad de lo que pagó en febrero del 2020 antes de suprimirlo totalmente.
Está claro que nuestra querida Telefónica para llegar a donde ha llegado, ha cometido montones de errores, pero también parece claro que desde hace años, el sector entero está pasando problemas estructurales graves en su modelo de negocio.
