Vodafone shares financial results for Q4 2014, returning to quarterly growth

The company surpassed analyst expectations by posting total group revenue of £42.22 billion ($65.5 billion), up from £38.35 billion ($59.7 billion) in 2013. Before taxes and depreciation, the company raked in £11.92 billion ($18.5 billion), up from £11.08 billion ($18.3 billion) in 2013. Organic service revenue for Vodafone as a whole declined throughout 2014, but was countered by strong growth in Q4.

Vodafone attributes today's news to steady recovery in European markets, as well as continued growth in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Vodafone has also been heavily investing in network infrastructure, noting that 63 percent of mobile networking plans have been completed. As an outlook for the financial year of 2015, the company aims for between £11.5 to 12 billion ($18.6 billion).

It hasn't been a bad year for Vodafone, especially given the fact the company hasn't experienced organic growth in three years. Interested to learn more about today's earnings? Check out the published report.

  • Still no app for Windows Phone in UK.
  • Hahaha lol, I'm using Vodafone IN app on my windows phone since more than a year.
  • There's no Irish App either...
  • There is a Vodafone app here in the Netherlands...
  • There is a Windows Phone app in Greece
  • When I recieved my 1st Lumia that was A 18months ago. I went to the store and was greeted by MyVodacom App(Vodafone is a parent)....... 
  • Wonder if they'll start paying their taxes
  • I can't wait until my contract ends with them and I can switch, reception is terrible outside of metro areas.
  • I wonder what is this news doing here in a MS/Windows oriented website....
  • But still there is no news relating to No Windows 10 update for pirated Windows PC
  • Yes there has.
  • Many WP users throughout the world use Vodafone. I'm tired of seeing peoples comments about their views of relevance in certain articles. Some articles aren't relevant to me. Do you know what I do? I don't click on them. Try that.
  • Vodafone is the best supporter of Windows Phone in Ireland. Im switchimg to them in December
  • Just bought the 640 with them, it's cheaper with them than Meteor.
  • Something to do with the site formerly being called WindowsPhone Central and the current site still covering phone news? I dunno. Just a guess.
  • When will this company provide carrier billing in India??
  • Waiting for that.
  • I don't see any real support for WP from Vodafone. Here in Portugal it's the only carrier that doesn't have any native app for WP, none. Only one that basically is a webapp, it opens in a browser... Even though Lumia 640 sold out in a blink of an eye, and there are lots of people waiting for more of those... Don't really understand why is it so hard for Vodafone to make native apps for WP...  
  • They are making apps for Greece, Nederland etc.. Just u have to wait yo ;)
  • Their 4G in Italy is simply awesome, even in the countryside.
  • Well, working good for me at least in India..... vodafone Probably has the best receptors...... Signal quality is always strong even in an elevator
