Montabourg After the expected increase of its subsidiary 1 & 1, Internet company United Internet also wants to go a step further. For the current year, the board of directors now aims to generate revenue of 5.6 billion euros, the company announced Wednesday evening in Montabor.
So far, 5.5 billion euros have been sent. The operating result for 2021 should now be €1.25 billion instead of €1.22 billion. This includes fixed costs of about 30 million euros for 5G network expansion and 40 million euros for new products from internet service provider Ionos.
In the first six months, sales rose 4.4 percent to just under 2.8 billion euros. Without income other than the period from the national roaming agreement with Telefonica Deutschland, United Internet generated an operating profit of 633.8 million euros, an increase of 2.1 percent.
Previously, 1&1 had messed up its expectations for operating results. Instead of the 650 million euros previously pledged, the council is now estimated at 670 million euros. Sales for the year as a whole are expected to remain at €3.1 billion.
