English term or phrase:No guidance for next year has been given.
AT&T has moved from being a telecom behemoth with wireless, retail, wholesale and corporate divisions to a much smaller and more focused organisation, and is still battling shrinkage. Revenues for the three months ended 30 September 2004 were down nearly 13 per cent year-on-year at US$7.63 bn. (No guidance for next year has been given.) As a comparison, seven years ago, full-year revenues from business services alone were more than US$22 bn, while consumer services generated US$24 bn in revenue. In stemming this erosion, AT&T has chosen to focus its resources on the provision of value-added services to the ‘Global 2000’.
