Luxembourg, February 10, 2023 – Millicom is pleased to announce its fourth quarter and annual 2022 results. Please find below links to the Q4 2022 Earnings Release and IAS 34 Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Millicom Chief Executive Officer Mauricio Ramos commented:
"2022 was a strong year for Millicom. Operationally, we gained or sustained mobile and fixed market share in the vast majority of our markets, and we continued to successfully execute on our strategy to accelerate growth in B2B. In Mobile, we continued to invest to modernize and upgrade our networks, and we were the first to introduce 5G service in Guatemala. In Home, we continued to expand our network to reach 822,000 new homes, and we pivoted our new build activity toward fiber-to-the-home. We now reach 12.6 million homes, of which 730,000 are already fiber.
Despite a more challenging macroeconomic and competitive environment, we achieved Equity Free Cash Flow1of $171 million, in line with our budget and consistent with our three-year target, thanks to robust organic OCF growth of 8.4%. These results demonstrate Millicom's ability to adapt to changing market conditions and reflect the strength of our team, our brand, and the quality of the services we provide, backed by state-of-the-art networks and infrastructure.
In 2022, we also validated our science-based targets and were recognized as one of the top five employers globally in the Great Place to Work survey. I want to thank our 20,000 employees for their continued hard work and dedication. I am confident that, together, we will deliver another outstanding performance in 2023."
