Telenor Quarterly Results Q3, 2018 – Important milestones achieved

Telenor Quarterly Results Q3, 2018 – Important milestones achieved

ISLAMABAD: Telenor Group has released its financial results for third quarter 2018 today. Telenor Pakistan has delivered another good quarter with revenue growth and strong profitability with Subscription and traffic revenues increasing by 10% and total revenues showing an increase of 11.5% reaching to PKR 29.976 Billion, up PKR 3.081 Billion from same quarter last year. Reported EBITDA margin was 77%, but adjusted for reversals, the underlying margin was 54%.

Additional Information:
When calculated and reported in NOK, it may be noted that due to recent exchange rate fluctuations revenues show slight decline compared to third quarter of 2017 as opposed to actual revenue that is earned and reported in PKR.

“The Telenor team delivered another quarter of solid and consistent performance, with stable revenues and a 6% organic EBITDA growth. The steps we have taken over the past two years have laid the foundation for continued value creation.

The third quarter was an important milestone for us in Thailand, as the concession model came to an end. We are very pleased how the transition to the licence model has been executed, removing uncertainty and securing significant access to spectrum and infrastructure. We now have a solid platform to deliver superior data services to our customers and create value in the growing Thai market.

In Norway, network quality is key to our customers and we are proud to have the world’s fastest mobile network. Our mobile customer base grew for the first time in three years and in addition, we continued to expand our fibre network and connected close to 9,000 households during the quarter.

In both Pakistan and Bangladesh revenue trends improved, while competition in Myanmar intensified following the entrance of a fourth mobile operator.

We also successfully completed the sale of our operations in Central and Eastern Europe and will continue to drive our transformation forward with a clear focus on growth, efficiency and simplification. Our achievements so far this year confirm the organisation’s strength and our ability to execute across the company,” said Sigve Brekke, Chief Executive Officer of Telenor Group.

Third quarter 2018 summary
  • On an organic basis, subscription and traffic revenues were stable, while total revenues increased by 1%. Total reported revenues were NOK 27.6 billion, which is an increase of 1%.
  • Reported opex continued to decrease by NOK 0.3 billion or 3%.
  • EBITDA before other items was NOK 12.4 billion with an EBITDA margin of 45%, or 2 percentage points above last year. Organic EBITDA growth was 6%, positively impacted by reversal of provisions.
  • Net income attributable to equity holders of Telenor ASA was NOK 5.8 billion, or NOK 3.96 per share.
  • Capex excluding licences and spectrum was NOK 4.2 billion, resulting in a capex to sales ratio of 15%.
  • Free cash flow for the quarter was NOK 26.5 billion following the divestment of our assets in Central and Eastern Europe.
Shareholder remuneration

  • In addition, Telenor bought back 7.7 million shares during the quarter and is well on track to finalise the market purchases of the 2% buyback programme before year end. In combination with the ordinary and special dividend, the buyback programme approved by the General Assembly on 2 May 2018 will return a total of close to NOK 23 billion to shareholders in 2018.
Outlook
  • For 2018, we adjust our expectations to an organic subscription and traffic revenue growth of 0-1%, an organic EBITDA growth of 3-4% and capex excluding licences and spectrum of NOK 16-17 billion.
