Dan Baker Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Dan Baker |

In our view, no-moat China Unicom continues to be undervalued after reporting solid third-quarter 2021 result that was broadly in line with recent trends and our estimates. Third-quarter services revenue grew 6.8%, with EBITDA up 6.6% and net profit up 15.4%. While the pace of service revenue growth was broadly maintained from the second quarter we saw a slowing of mobile services revenue growth to 3% and an increase in fixed services revenue growth to 11.7% driven by strong industry Internet momentum and improving broadband revenue growth.
