Following Mol's quick report last week, the other three blue chip players in the Hungarian market published their third quarter figures this week, all of which were particularly good.
They recalled that OTP's third-quarter figures were all stronger than analyst consensus. Total income and net interest income were both up by more than a quarter on an annual basis. The improvement in profit and loss lines was around 50%. Management has raised its expectations for this year, with loan growth of 15%, while interest margins may stabilize.
Positive results also came from Richter. The company released its third-quarter results early on Tuesday, which by all accounts exceeded preliminary expectations. Due to currency movements, the company reported an exceptionally high financial result of HUF 72 billion for the first three quarters of the year. Profit after tax was 116% above the third quarter of 2021, and the profit after tax ratio reached 38%.
Magyar Telekom closed the third quarter with a better-than-expected result, with management upgrading its full-year revenue forecast. The company's revenue increased by 9% on an annual basis to HUF 190.9 billion. Revenue growth was helped by strong demand for mobile data revenues and strong growth in handset sales.
4iG led a winning consortium: the 4iG-led consortium was among the winners of the Digital Government Agency's HUF 37 billion net framework tender. The framework agreement does not provide for automatic orders, and specific procurements will be re-tendered between the consortia participating in the framework agreement based on the needs of the organizations concerned. The maximum duration of the framework agreement is 30 months from its entry into force.
