The French company has entered 3,500 million euros in the first nine months of the year, 1.6% more than in 2022 at this point, thanks to the good performance of its division for individuals, which increases its contribution by 1.8% and which reported a growth of 2.4 % in the third quarter, being positive news for the group.
The company also insists on its confidence to close the merger with MásMóvil in the first quarter of 2024, after receiving the green light from the European Commission before the end of the year.
