Telstra is on a succeeding streak delivering a growth in revenue, profit and customer numbers for the first half of the 2012 financial year.

The company reported total revenue increased by 1.1 per cent from $136 million to $12.4 million while net profit after tax soared 22.9 per cent from $274 million to $1.4 million.

Additionally, Telstra continued to attract new customers in the half year accumulating more than one million new customers across its services.
“Last year we recorded one of our best years for customer growth. This momentum has continued into the first half of fiscal 2012,” David Thodey, Telstra chief executive, said.

“Our superior networks and competitive offers are being recognised and valued by new and existing customers. We are also seeing improvement in Telstra’s customer service with TIO complaints down 24 per cent over the year, though we still have more work to do.”

From these results, Telstra has confirmed fiscal 2012 guidance of low single digit revenue and EBITDA growth.

“Our strategy is unchanged. We will continue to focus on improving customer satisfaction, growing customer numbers, simplifying the business and taking advantage of new growth opportunities.” Thodey said.
