"We have achieved a solid performance in the first quarter, continuing our growth strategy. All relevant key indicators have improved. Group total revenues and EBITDA increased by 1.2% and 0.2% respectively on a proforma basis and grew by 4.0% and 6.7% on an adjusted basis. Reported net result rose by 30.2%, excluding extraordinary D&A from the amortisation of brand. We are therefore well placed to further prepare our markets for the digital future and successfully position the A1 Telekom Austria Group in a highly competitive market environment.
For 2018 we remain committed to our growth strategy and we are concentrating on our focus areas: exceling in the core business and expanding our innovative products- and services-portfolio."
