Regarding the first quarter of 2022, Oi also reflected its profit of R$ 1.78 billion.
According to Oi, the negative result reflects a net financial result, also negative, of R$3.13 billion, plus income tax expense of R$4.72 billion.
The company added, on a quarterly and year-over-year basis, that the increase in financial expenses is mainly explained by the negative impact of currency depreciation in the second quarter of 2022.
Total net revenue was R$2.77 billion between April and June of this year, down 36.9% year-on-year.
Total net revenue from Brazilian operations was R$2.74 billion, down 36.8% from the same period last year. This reduction was the result of the conclusion of the disposal operations of UPI Ativos Móveis and V.tal.

Ebitda (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) fell 69.8% from a year ago, to R$388 million.

With the completion of major planned operations, such as the sale of UPI Ativos Móveis and UPI InfraCo, which were under negotiation, proceeds from these transactions were used to amortize debt.
