Q309: RCom VAS Revenues Up Just 2.7% At At Rs. 113.9 Crores/Month

Q309 RCOM Reliance Communications VAS

Reliance Communications has reported a consolidated net profit of Rs. 14102 million, down 7.88% since the last quarter. This is despite a 3.64% increase in consolidated for the quarter. The company also reported a 2.21% increase in consolidated EBITDA - at Rs. 23,525 million. VAS Revenues & ARPU As per our calculations, RCom’s VAS revenues were flat - as they were last quarter as well - growing by just 2.7%% quarter on quarter to Rs. 1139 million/month from Rs. 1108 million/month.
