TPG Telecom (ASX:TPM)
has today announced its results for its financial year ended 31 July 2019 showing net profit down 56.1 per cent to $173.8 million.
The results are heavily impacted by the Group’s decision to scrap rollout of its Australian mobile network in January 2019.
This resulted in an impairment expense of $236.8 million and a significant increase in amortisation and interest expense relating to the Group’s Australian spectrum licences.
Revenue down 0.7 per cent to $2.48 billion.
The Federal Court this month will hear an appeal by TPG and Vodafone against the competition watchdog's decision to block the $15 billion merger.
