UPC Holding is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Liberty Global plc (“Liberty Global”) (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB and LBTYK).

Financial Results

We reported consolidated revenue of €1.08 billion and €2.16 billion for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively. These results reflect year-over-year increases of 2% and 3%, respectively, as compared to the corresponding prior year periods. Growth for each period was supported by over 575,000 organic net RGU additions during the last twelve months, offset to a much lesser extent by negative foreign exchange (“FX”) movements. In terms of rebased revenue growth, which adjusts for both the impact of acquisitions and FX, we achieved year-over-year revenue growth of 2% and 3% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.
