Millicom Chief Executive Officer Mauricio Ramos commented:

“The strong operating momentum we enjoyed throughout 2018 has continued into Q1 2019, as we delivered solid KPIs and organic growth, in line with our full-year targets. In particular, I am pleased to report that the significant investments we have made in Colombia and Bolivia over the past several years are now beginning to produce faster revenue growth and rising levels of profitability. Meanwhile, in Panama, the recently-acquired Cable Onda is performing very well, in line with our plans.

We made significant strategic progress during the quarter with the agreement reached to acquire Telefonica's mobile assets in Costa Rica, Panama, and Nicaragua. This transaction complements our cable operations in these countries and reshapes the industry landscape in the region. We also announced an agreement to divest our operations in Chad, consistent with our strategy of re-deploying our capital in Latin America.”

Spotlight on our markets

In this latest addition to our quarterly results video series, we invite to take a closer look into our operations at Millicom's Tigo Nicaragua. Our journey in the Nicaraguan market started back in 1999, since then, we have built digital highways that connect our corporate clients through cable TV and Internet Home services.

This achievement is for Millicom a commitment to contribute to the growth of the country, through its Tigo brand in Nicaragua; and to continue to expand its operations nationwide, providing a better digital experience for Nicaraguan families and entrepreneurs. Throughout 2018, we also nurtured this strong sense of company culture, which we are proud to call “Sangre Tigo” and now we invite you to also experience it with us with our team in Nicaragua by watching the film. Enjoy!
