BT Group provides new Openreach capex pro forma historical disclosures

·    Refreshed financial key performance indicators provided for 2019/20 and 2020/21, to improve visibility of Openreach's capital expenditure in value-enhancing investment programmes

BT Group has today published pro forma historical disclosures for wholly-owned, independent subsidiary Openreach. The disclosures are unaudited and provide an indicative history of the company's performance.

The disclosures are designed to improve visibility of capital allocation across the networks that underpin Openreach's products: WLR1, LLU2, FTTC3, Gfast (including single order variants); FTTP4; and Ethernet.

For the full definitions please see the glossary in the pro forma disclosures.

For the avoidance of doubt BT Group's outlook remains unchanged, including reported capital expenditure of c.£4.9bn for the year ending 31 March 2022.

The full disclosures are provided on BT's website.
