ISP Eftel (ASX:EFT) has reported a 29.9% wider 1H net loss of $1.3 million.
Revenue fell 16% to $15.4 million, and the company booked restructure costs of $525,000.
But Eftel said in a statement that the restructuring costs had been put to good use - the company has reduced operating expenses substantially through simplifying the business.
The company's profit from retail services declined from $6.8 million to $6.1 million, and corporate sales nearly halved, but wholesale revenue increased.
Eftel has since acquired Melbourne Based retail ISP Rabbit Internet for $123,000, and Colour City Internet for around $15,000 – approximately one month's revenue for the purchased company.
Eftel said it was in discussions to sell its Multi-service Access Node (MSAN) network, and had appointed PriceWaterHouse Coopers to act as advisors.
Post-election changes to the NBN rollout roadmap have extended the useful life of the network assets, increasing its potential value, it added.
EFT shares were flat on Tuesday at $0.014.
