Orange Profits Plunge But Sees Upturn – Yahoo News

Orange, a leading international telecom operator, also said in a results statement that it was pursuing “a policy of selective acquisitions by concentrating on markets in which it is already present.” The French telecom market is in turmoil following the emergence of Free as a national low-cost operator, largely thanks to a capacity contract with Orange which sparked a price war. Orange has suffered from losing customers to competitors, but the half-year statement said that the fall of sales had slowed down and that signs of improvement in the first quarter had continued in the second quarter. This was the case in its home market in France, but also in Belgium, Poland, and in services to businesses. Business was growing strongly in the Africa and Middle East region, it said. The fall of sales in France slowed to 4.7 percent in the first half from a fall of 6.9 percent in the same period of last year. http://news.yahoo.com/orange-profits-plunge-sees-upturn-103733777.html
