Tiscali SpA (TIS), an Italian phone and Internet company, reported a 2011 net loss as it had writedowns for unpaid bills from customers.
The loss of 38.1 million euros ($51 million) compares with a loss of 24.3 million euros in the year-earlier period, the Cagliari-based company said in a statement late yesterday.
Tiscali forecast a return to profit in 2012, with revenue expected to be in line with 2011 results.
