Alcatel Sees Better-Than-Expected Q2

Alcatel released preliminary second quarter 2005 earnings, saying results were ahead of expectations:

  • Revenues of EUR 3.14 billion, an increase of 8% over the same period last year (around 10% at a constant EUR/US$ exchange rate). This higher than expected revenue growth resulted from a strong momentum in IP routing and optical transmission, mobile communications, and enterprise solutions.

  • Operating margin amounted to slightly above 8% of revenues.

  • Diluted EPS of around EUR 0.13 (US$0.16(1) per ADS), and included a positive impact from tax income and a one time capital gain.

Second quarter 2005 results will be published on July 28, 2005.
