Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE.XE) Thursday posted increased revenue in the third quarter, but slightly lower earnings as the company invested in measures to acquire new customers.

MAIN FACTS:

-Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization in the third quarter fell by 2.6% to EUR4.66 billion, mainly due to investments in customer growth.

-Adjusted after-tax profit came in about 11% lower than in the year-earlier period at EUR823 million. After-tax profit was EUR588 million.

-Revenue was up 6.0% on the year to EUR15.5 billion, beating analyst expectations of EUR15.31 billion. About 59% of revenue was generated internationally. Telekom's U.S. unit T-Mobile led revenue growth by acquiring more than a million net customers between July and September.

-Organic revenue, which doesn't include the acquisition of MetroPCS, was up 2.4%.

-Deutsche Telekom confirmed its guidance for the full year 2013. Adjusted EBITDA is still expected at around EUR17.5 billion and free cash flow around EUR4.5 billion.

-Earlier this week, T-Mobile posted a narrowing loss as the company added new customers and revenue was boosted by contributions from its merger with MetroPCS Communications Inc.
