May 12, 2010
Eutelsat Communications has reported a strong revenue growth in the third quarter and the nine months ending March 31st, 2010. Expansion HD services and increased satellite capacity helped nine-month revenues reach E776.3 million, while third quarter revenues touched E268.3 million after a 13.4 per cent rise.
Commenting on the Group’s third quarter 2009-2010 revenue, Michel de Rosen, CEO of Eutelsat Communications said: “With a strategy focused on expanding satellite resources for regions with the strongest potential for expansion, Eutelsat has achieved double-digit sales growth across its entire portfolio of services for the third quarter of its financial year. This remarkable performance is a result of the sustained increase in demand in the regions covered by our fleet, and the increase in satellite capacity we have achieved with our new satellites as well as rapid redeployment of existing in-orbit resources.”
