(Telecompaper) Telecom Italia reported a 1.6 percent year-on-year decline in revenues to EUR 4.74 billion in the first quarter, hit by falling sales at its TIM Brasil unit and provisions made for a domestic fine of EUR 74.3 million imposed on the phone group after the Italian government activated the so-called “golden power” rule last October to scale back Vivendi’s influence. The company’s EBITDA for the quarter fell 4.9 percent year on year to EUR 1.89 billion with a margin of 39.9 percent, down 1.4 percentage points year on year. On an organic basis, excluding exchange rate effects and non-recurring components, revenues were up 2.7 percent in the first three months of the year, with EBITDA rising 1.8 percent, boosted by a 1.7 percent rise in domestic sales. The group’s adjusted net debt came to EUR 25.54 billion at the end of Q1, some EUR 229 million higher than the Q4 result, with capex falling to EUR 660 million from EUR 831 million in Q1 2017.
