CEO Mike Fries stated, “Our fourth quarter and full year results demonstrate the continued resilience of our business model as we delivered on all guidance metrics, despite challenging macro conditions.
There remains ever-increasing demand across our footprint for reliable access to high-quality fixed and mobile connectivity and we continue driving product innovation to ensure superior customer experiences. Financially, while we’re not immune from the impacts of high energy and labor costs across our core FMC businesses, we continue to take actions to maintain strong operating margins while further investing in our market-leading fixed and mobile networks. This leaves us well positioned to deliver for shareholders in 2023, underpinned by our 10% minimum buyback commitment and$6 billion of liquidity, including $3.4 billion of corporate cash.
In Q4, we delivered aggregate broadband and postpaid mobile growth of 197,000 net new subscribers, supported by a return to broadband additions across all of our FMC markets as well as continuing positive postpaid trends.”
