Below is a detailed overview of the financial performance of MTN Nigeria Communications Plc during the third quarter of 2023.

Data ReveData Revenue Supports Revenue Growth

In its recently released Q3:2023 financial result, MTN Nigeria Communications Plc (MTNN) noted increased revenue, exceeding its growth from a year ago. Topline grew by 21.76% YoY to NGN1.77trn in Q3:2023 (vs. 20.71% YoY in Q3:2022). This improvement is underpinned by a modest expansion in Voice Revenue (11.80% YoY to NGN700.63bn), strong Data Revenue (36.25% YoY NGN748.30bn) and an uptick in Other Revenues (15.61% YoY to NGN324.02bn). Despite the upsurge in revenue, higher operating costs limited the pass-through to EBIT.
