Saudi’s Mobily to reissue 2014, Q1 2015 results after regulator probe

The company made the statement after a team appointed by the Capital Market Authority identified concerns over Mobily’s contracts with customers

Saudi Arabia’s Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) said on Sunday that accounting changes would increase its 2014 loss by about SAR 830m ($221m) to SAR 1.745bn.

The company made the statement after a team appointed by the Capital Market Authority identified concerns over Mobily’s contracts with customers, including those for fibre networks. The team recommended that the company reconsider its accounting approach for the contracts.

Mobily said it would reissue its financial statements for the year 2014 and the first quarter of 2015 before releasing its second-quarter results.

It said that in addition to increasing its 2014 loss, the changes were expected to reduce the company’s first-quarter 2015 loss by about SAR 207m, leading to a profit of SAR 8m for the quarter.

The board has decided to increase provisions related to “Zain account receivables” by SAR 800m in the second quarter of 2015, the company added without elaborating.
