TTG Q1 2010/11 trading update: holding firm

14 September 2010

TalkTalk Group (TTG) reported revenue growth for the quarter to June was flattered by the Tiscali acquisition, but broadband net additions were reasonable given the protracted integration process and temporary absence from TV schedules of the X-Factor

An MVNO could prove challenging in terms of generating a significant direct impact on financial performance, but might help defend against other low price players, notably O2 and Tesco

Increasing demand for pay-TV, stimulated by Sky, VMed and now BT Retail, could potentially leave TTG exposed. Our current view is that there remains sufficient demand for ‘extended’ free-to-air TV for this not to be a major issue
