MOSCOW, Russia — MTS (NYSE: MBT; MOEX: MTSS), Russia’s leading telecommunications operator and digital services provider, today announces its financial and operating results for Q3 2019.
MTS continued to demonstrate solid performance in Q3 2019, with Group revenue increasing 4.6% year-over-year, reaching RUB 133.9 bn. The main drivers were mobile service revenue in Ukraine and Russia, as well as strong revenue dynamics on the part of MTS Bank.

MTS President & CEO Alexey Kornya commented: “I am happy to report that in Q3 we successfully maintained our momentum and delivered another quarter of solid results. Given our strong year-to-date results and improved visibility toward our full-year performance, we feel confident in raising our 2019 guidance to 6-7% growth in revenue and 4-5% growth in OIBDA. Heading into the final stretch of the year, we are well-positioned to deliver a strong close to 2019 for the benefit of our shareholders.”
