The construction, telecoms and media group posted a current operating profit of 492 million euros ($505.23 million) for the six months to June, ahead of analysts' median forecast of 409 million euros according to a company-compiled poll.
It now expects Bouygues Telecom's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) after leases to increase by over 8% in 2022, against around 7% previously.
In addition, Bouygues Telecom replaced its 2022 sales from services growth target of around 5% with a sales billed to customers growth target of above 5%, which it said was "more representative of its performance".
