Apr 27, 2023
Luxembourg – Millicom is pleased to announce its first quarter 2023 results. Please find below links to the Q1 2023 Earnings Release and IAS 34 Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Millicom Chief Executive Officer Mauricio Ramos commented:
"During the quarter, we continued to execute our plans, which are yielding positive results as we navigate the challenging macroeconomic environment. I am particularly pleased with our performance of Tigo Business (our B2B operation), where organic growth continued to accelerate, thanks to our clearly-defined strategy centreed on digital services. We also saw robust growth in Mobile, as a result of recent network investments and pricing actions, which are driving an ongoing and valuable shift to postpaid and improving ARPU trends. Additionally, our continued commitment to ESG yielded positive results as we maintained our MSCI ESG rating at 'AA', placing above the industry average and reinforcing our position as a leader in corporate governance.
As we look to the future, we remain focused on improving operational efficiency. During Q1, we incurred meaningful restructuring costs as we began to implement Project Everest, a comprehensive program that is expected to deliver run-rate savings of over $100 million by the end of 2024. This project will allow us to become more agile and efficient, and we expect the financial benefits will begin accruing during the year.
We have also made significant strides in optimising our investment activity, securing multi-year agreements with key vendors to lower our annual spend as we commit to expand capacity and coverage of our networks in coming years. As a result of these initiatives and our solid top-line performance, we remain confident in our ability to achieve the medium-term targets we outlined in early 2022."
