Message from the CEO, Eelco Blok
“KPN’s performance in the first quarter was on track with the updated strategic agenda we presented in February. We continued to invest in our market positions in The Netherlands and made good progress to expand in postpaid and data in Germany. We see the success of our strategy in The Netherlands in the continuing momentum in TV and broadband, and the launch of 4G services as first mover. Next to this, we have made meaningful progress with our restructuring program, and quality improvements are driving customer satisfaction upwards in the consumer markets.
In the last months, we have taken important steps to strengthen our financial position. Our EUR 2bn hybrid bond program has successfully been completed and on 10 April the AGM approved our announced EUR 3bn rights issue. We expect to launch the rights issue shortly.”
