CAIRO, March 13 (Reuters) - Egypt’s Orascom Telecom Media and Technology Holding said on Thursday its 2013 profit after tax dropped by 69.5 percent compared with a year earlier to 1.12 billion Egyptian pounds ($161 million).

The 2013 results came in a statement published in financial newspaper Al-Mal. OTMT’s shares closed at 1.51 pounds on Wednesday, putting its market cap at 7.92 billion pounds. ($1 = 6.9603 Egyptian Pounds) (Reporting by Shadia Nasralla and Ehab Farouk; Editing by Louise Ireland)
