MADRID Nov 5 Spanish broadband specialist
Jazztel posted a 3 percent rise in nine-month net
profit on Tuesday to 49 million euros ($66.2 million) as the
company snapped up mobile phone and optical fibre clients.
The Madrid-based company, which is often cited by analysts
as a possible takeover target for bigger Spanish and European
competitors, also reported a 5-percent rise year-on-year in
earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation
(EBITDA) to 133.9 million euros.
Shares in the company have risen more than 50 percent since
the start of the year, both on a strong business performance and
the perspective of a possible sale.($1 = 0.7402 euros)
