Egypt's Global Telecom posts $749m Q4 loss
Cairo, March 6, 2014
Egypt-based international telecoms firm Global Telecom, formerly Orascom Telecom Holding, reported a fourth-quarter net loss of $749 million on Thursday, a 59 percent increase in losses on a year ago.
It blamed lower currency exchange rates and regulatory pressures in several countries in which it operates for the result.
Revenues fell to $834 million from £908 million in the same period in 2012.
