British mobile phone giant Vodafone on Tuesday said annual net profits dropped almost 13 percent as eurozone losses offset asset sale gains and strong performances in emerging markets and the US. Vodafone said profit after tax hit £6.957 billion (8.6 billion euros, $11.0 billion) in the 12 months to March 31, down 12.7 percent compared with 2010/11.
Revenue rose 1.2 percent to £46.4 billion in 2011/12. AFP PHOTO / CARL COURT (Photo credit should read CARL COURT/AFP/GettyImages)
