Vodafone Group PLC (VOD.LN) said Tuesday that it is cutting its full-year dividend, having increased payouts to shareholders without interruption since 1998, as it reported a swing to a loss for fiscal 2019.

The U.K. telecommunications company declared a full-year dividend of 9 European cents a share, down from 15.07 European cents a share a year earlier. The company had previously said it expected to maintain its full-year dividend unchanged on year.

Vodafone reported a pretax loss for the year ended March 31 of 2.61 billion euros ($2.94 billion) compared with a profit of EUR3.88 billion in fiscal 2018, it said.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization--the company's preferred profit measure--rose 3.1% on an organic basis, in line with the company's guidance of around 3% underlying organic growth, Vodafone said.

Revenue for fiscal 2019 fell 6.2% to EUR43.67 billion from EUR46.57 billion, the company said. Analysts had forecast revenue of EUR45.01 billion, according to a consensus based on estimates by 15 analysts provided by FactSet.

For the year ahead, Vodafone guided for adjusted Ebitda of between EUR13.8 billion and EUR14.2 billion and free-cash flow before spectrum costs of at least EUR5.4 billion.

Vodafone also said it is launching 5G services in seven cities across the U.K. on July 3.
