For 2020, Swisscom still expects net revenue of around CHF 11.0 billion, EBITDA of around CHF 4.3 billion and capital expenditure of around CHF 2.3 billion. If business performs as planned, Swisscom intends to propose payment of an unchanged dividend of CHF 22 per share for the 2020 financial year at the 2021 Annual General Meeting.
Due to strong competition and price pressure and a decline in the number of fixed-line telephone connections, Swisscom expects revenue to be slightly lower without Fastweb. Revenue is also expected to be slightly lower due to the Covid-19-related decline in roaming volumes. Fastweb’s revenue is expected to increase slightly from 2019. For Swisscom without Fastweb, the decline in revenue cannot be fully offset by cost savings; EBITDA is expected to decline on an adjusted basis. In contrast, an increase in EBITDA is anticipated for Fastweb. Capital expenditure in Switzerland, excluding costs for acquiring additional mobile radio frequencies at auction, will be slightly less than in the previous year. Capital expenditure at Fastweb is expected to be lower.
