(Corrects net profit figure after company re-submitted early results)
CAIRO, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Telecom Egypt, the country’s fixed-line monopoly, posted 994 million Egyptian pounds in net profit in the second quarter, up 11 percent from 895.6 million pounds in the same period a year earlier.
It gave no reason for the increase. Telecom Egypt is waiting for the government to approve a unified licence for mobile and landline services that would allow the company to offer mobile services and significantly boost its earnings. (Reporting by Lin Noueihed; Editing by David Goodman)
