India's Bharti Airtel quarterly profit falls 69 pct, misses estimates

MUMBAI, May 9 (Reuters) - Bharti Airtel Ltd, India’s biggest telecoms operator, reported a 69 percent drop in quarterly profit, missing market expectations as a price war launched by a rival carrier last year weighed on its earnings.

Consolidated net profit fell to 4.71 billion Indian rupees ($72.8 million) in the three months to March 31 from 15.29 billion rupees a year ago, Bharti said in a statement on Tuesday.

That was below a mean estimate of 5.28 billion rupees from seven analysts, according to Thomson Reuters data.
