TomTom Posts Narrower Loss In Q3; Revenue Up 7%

TomTom (TMOAF.PK) said it recorded better-than-expected revenue in the third quarter, driven by Location Technology business. For full year 2022, the Group projects revenue, both on group level as well as for Location Technology, to outperform initial guidance.

“Macroeconomic uncertainties and inflationary pressures have an impact on global car production as well as our cost levels. For 2023, we reiterate our revenue guidance, but lower the free cash flow guidance to break-even,” said Taco Titulaer, CFO.

Net result was a loss of 17.5 million euros compared to a loss of 20.8 million euros, prior year. Loss per share was 0.14 euros compared to a loss of 0.16 euros. Revenue for the third quarter was 136 million euros, an increase of 7% year on year.

For fiscal 2022, the Group expects revenue in a range of 505 million euros to 520 million euros. For fiscal 2023, the Group now expects revenue in a range of 500 million euros to 550 million euros.

Viasat, Inmarsat To Co-operate With CMA’s Phase 2 Probe Into Proposed Merger

Viasat Inc. (VSAT), a communications firm, and Inmarsat, a provider of mobile satellite communications services, said on Friday that they look forward to work with the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority or CMA and narrate the benefits of their proposed merger.

The companies’ statement follows the market regulator’s announcement on Friday that it will refer the transaction to a Phase 2 probe.

“Viasat and Inmarsat remain confident that the transaction will increase the availability of more affordable, faster, and more reliable IFC globally to operators, airlines, and passengers. While the market is still nascent, existing providers Panasonic and Intelsat combined represent more than 75% of the long-haul IFC market,” both parties said in a statement.

The proposed transaction has already obtained several major regulatory approvals.

In November 2021, Viasat agreed to acquire Inmarsat in a deal valued at $7.3 billion, comprised of $850.0 million in cash, approximately 46.36 million shares of Viasat common stock valued at $3.1 billion, and the assumption of $3.4 billion of net debt.
