Vodafone Q1 2013/14 results: Uneven bounce

22 July 2013

Vodafone Europe’s reported organic service revenue growth improved in the June quarter for the first time in over a year, albeit to the still-somewhat-unimpressive figure of -7.2%

This was however helped by slightly improving MTR cuts and the previous quarter being hit by the leap year effect; on an underlying basis growth declined again

Contract net adds continue to be weak, ARPU continues to suffer from the dilutive Vodafone Red tariffs, and the company continues to invest heavily in fixed line and lightly in mobile, the wrong way around in our view
