Du to pay 15% royalty fee from 2010 profit

UAE telecoms provider du will pay 15 per cent of its net profit for 2010 as royalty to the government, it said in a statement released on Monday.

Du, partly owned by Dubai Holding and Abu Dhabi investment vehicle Mubadala Development Co, said commencement of the royalty fee payable to government will be effective January 1, 2010.

The company is yet to report its full-year results. The telecom's third-quarter profit more than doubled on strong revenue growth, spurred by a jump in mobile and fixed line subscribers.

"The ongoing royalty for subsequent years will be advised to the company in due course," the statement said.
