EUSKALTEL ANNOUNCES PLAN FOR GROWTH
Euskaltel yesterday published its 2020-2025 Business Plan setting out its key strategic initiatives and anticipated financial results for the next 5 years. The plan details the actions being taken to grow in its existing core regions, to expand using the Virgin brand to offer high value services to customers across Spain, and to continue to drive operational efficiencies through a single integrated organisation.
Further details on Euskaltel's Business Plan and its financial projections for the 2020-2025 period can be found at https://www.euskaltel.com/CanalOnline/investors .
Eamonn O'Hare, Zegona's Chairman and CEO, commented, "Euskaltel's 2020-2025 Business Plan sets the business on an exciting growth trajectory. The combination of increasing its market footprint with a continued focus on operating efficiency is expected to lead to positive results for the existing business. José Miguel and his team have a great track record of building a highly valued national business from their time at Jazztel, which makes us highly confident in their National Expansion plans. Addressing the 85% of the Spanish market where Euskaltel is not currently present using the well-recognised Virgin brand creates a major new growth driver which is expected to transform the financial profile of the business."
