BT: Bright dawns ahead

30 May 2023

BT hit all its targets for the 2022/23 financial year, ending the year with a (predicted) consumer service revenue growth slowdown but a surprisingly strong B2B performance fully compensating.

Investors were disappointed in the outlook for cashflow in 2023/24, with tax benefits being absorbed by the cost of faster-than-expected full fibre adoption, ignoring that this is good news rather than bad.

Next quarter the company will get a substantial boost from the price rises, and in the longer term an even more substantial boost from the completion of the full fibre build is looking increasingly secure.
