Zain sees 31% slump in Q1 profit

14 May 2010

(MENAFN) Kuwait’s Mobile Telecommunication Co, Zain, saw a 31 percent plunge in first-quarter net profit, mainly due to a restructuring of its operations, Reuters reported.

The country’s biggest mobile operator said that its quarterly net income was $179 million, with total revenues from the Middle East amounting to $1.15 billion.

Zain?s net profit in the year-earlier period was $261 million.

The firm?s Chairman, Asaad Al-Banwan, said in a statement that local, regional and global markets are still suffering from the global financial crisis, which sets more challenges for the group’s operations.

Al-Banwan added that a total restructure of the group’s operations was one of the main challenges in the first quarter.
