The most recent acquisition, Sotelma, was consolidated as from 1 August 2009. Consolidated operating income in the three-month period rose 0.5% year-on-year to MAD3.205 billion, while EBITDA reached MAD4.282 billion, up 1.5% y-o-y. The company’s fixed, mobile and broadband operations in Morocco generated Q1 revenues of MAD6.095 million, down 0.7% year-on-year, and operational income of MAD2.898 billion, down 3.1%, which the telco’s statement attributed chiefly to the financial impact of ‘marketing and communications efforts.’
