Revenues for the year slipped 1.9 percent to 1.55 billion euros from 1.58 billion euros due to a 7.7 percent drop in Voice revenues which offset the 0.5 percent growth in Data and the 7.9 percent improvement in Managed Services revenues.

Separately the company announced the retirement of Board member Hans Eggerstedt effective April 26, 2012. As Chairman of the Audit Committee, Eggerstedt is likely to be succeeded by Anthony Rabin while Sergio Giacoletto is expected to step into the role of Senior Independent Director.
