Sigve Brekke says : "The fourth quarter results reflect overall solid performance for Telenor Group. During the quarter, subscription and traffic revenues increased by two percent and operating expenses decreased by six percent. As a result, EBITDA improved by five percent. In Norway, growth in mobile revenues continued with further ARPU improvement, and we were able to offset copper revenue decline with growth in fibre and fixed wireless access. One of our top priorities this year has been to return to growth in Thailand and Myanmar, and it is therefore reassuring to end the year with good performance in both markets. The positive developments in these markets were partly offset by price pressure in Sweden and a still challenging situation in Pakistan. In Bangladesh, we were able to serve our customers with innovative and high quality services despite 2019 being a year with an increasingly demanding business environment. During the year our customer base increased by 12 million, resulting in a total base of 186 million. Throughout 2019, we have continued our strategic journey set out at the Capital Markets Day in 2017 with clear ambitions. Delivering on these ambitions over several years has given us the flexibility to further develop our portfolio, resulting in the acquisition of DNA in Finland in 2019. In accordance with our dividend policy, we will propose an ordinary dividend of NOK 8.70 per share for 2019. Entering 2020, we will continue to focus on growth, efficiency and simplification, expecting organic subscription and traffic revenue growth of zero to two percent and organic EBITDA growth of two to four percent, supported by continued modernisation efforts. The capex to sales ratio, excluding licences and spectrum, is expected to be around 15 percent," External link

Sigve Brekke said : “The performance in the third quarter reflects continued strong execution on our strategy, focusing on growth, efficiency and simplification. Overall, the Group delivers an almost flat organic subscription and traffic revenue growth and organic EBITDA decline of 2%, when adjusting for project costs this quarter and non-recurring items last year. Our cost base remained stable, excluding DNA and project costs. The modernisation in Norway is progressing according to plan, and we see a 3% mobile subscription and traffic revenue growth combined with a 5% reduction in operating expenses this quarter. In Thailand and Myanmar, the momentum seen earlier in 2019 continued and both operations have now returned to positive subscription and traffic revenue growth. However, headwinds in Pakistan as a result of the telecom tax re-introduction and a difficult macroeconomic environment have made the situation locally challenging. During the quarter we have successfully concluded the acquisition of DNA in Finland. The mandatory tender offer period ended on 10 October and resulted in an ownership share of 97.96 percent. We have started to onboard DNA to our procurement processes to materialise synergies, and we are now looking for opportunities to expand service offerings to Finnish business customers. Recently, we have also taken further steps on our simplification agenda. Yesterday, we announced that we will be entering into a joint venture with Nordic Entertainment Group, combining our satellite-based entertainment businesses to extract synergies and deliver enhanced customer experience. Based on the performance so far this year and our expectations for the fourth quarter, we maintain our outlook for 2019. Execution on our strategic agenda remains our focus and key driver for value creation going forward,” External link

Sigve Brekke said ( about Commission ) : “The strategic agenda we initiated two years ago continued to bear fruit in the second quarter. Although organic subscription and traffic revenues declined by 1 percent, the EBITDA margin was 40 percent and we saw positive revenue development and effects from efficiency and modernisation programmes. Our underlying financial performance remains stable. Across our markets, results show that the momentum set at the start of the year continues. In Norway, we see mobile ARPU growth of 2 percent. Preparations for 5G are ongoing through pilots and network upgrades. There is good traction on fibre rollout and copper infrastructure replacement, which will enable customers to connect faster and more reliably. In Thailand and Myanmar, we have seen improved revenue growth during the year. Investments made in Thailand are showing results, building a foundation for future growth. Subscription and traffic revenue growth in Bangladesh was 13 percent. During the quarter, 2.3 million new customers joined our networks globally. Our acquisition of a majority stake in Finland’s DNA has been approved by the European Commission, and we expect completion of the deal in August. Following completion, we will launch a mandatory tender offer for the remaining shares in the company. In Asia, we continue to work on the potential combination with Axiata, with the aim to finalise an agreement within the third quarter of 2019.

Sigve Brekke says : "The fourth quarter results reflect overall solid performance for Telenor Group. During the quarter, subscription and traffic revenues increased by two percent and operating expenses decreased by six percent. As a result, EBITDA improved by five percent. In Norway, growth in mobile revenues continued with further ARPU improvement, and we were able to offset copper revenue decline with growth in fibre and fixed wireless access. One of our top priorities this year has been to return to growth in Thailand and Myanmar, and it is therefore reassuring to end the year with good performance in both markets. The positive developments in these markets were partly offset by price pressure in Sweden and a still challenging situation in Pakistan. In Bangladesh, we were able to serve our customers with innovative and high quality services despite 2019 being a year with an increasingly demanding business environment. During the year our customer base increased by 12 million, resulting in a total base of 186 million. Throughout 2019, we have continued our strategic journey set out at the Capital Markets Day in 2017 with clear ambitions. Delivering on these ambitions over several years has given us the flexibility to further develop our portfolio, resulting in the acquisition of DNA in Finland in 2019. In accordance with our dividend policy, we will propose an ordinary dividend of NOK 8.70 per share for 2019. Entering 2020, we will continue to focus on growth, efficiency and simplification, expecting organic subscription and traffic revenue growth of zero to two percent and organic EBITDA growth of two to four percent, supported by continued modernisation efforts. The capex to sales ratio, excluding licences and spectrum, is expected to be around 15 percent," External link

Sigve Brekke said : “The performance in the third quarter reflects continued strong execution on our strategy, focusing on growth, efficiency and simplification. Overall, the Group delivers an almost flat organic subscription and traffic revenue growth and organic EBITDA decline of 2%, when adjusting for project costs this quarter and non-recurring items last year. Our cost base remained stable, excluding DNA and project costs. The modernisation in Norway is progressing according to plan, and we see a 3% mobile subscription and traffic revenue growth combined with a 5% reduction in operating expenses this quarter. In Thailand and Myanmar, the momentum seen earlier in 2019 continued and both operations have now returned to positive subscription and traffic revenue growth. However, headwinds in Pakistan as a result of the telecom tax re-introduction and a difficult macroeconomic environment have made the situation locally challenging. During the quarter we have successfully concluded the acquisition of DNA in Finland. The mandatory tender offer period ended on 10 October and resulted in an ownership share of 97.96 percent. We have started to onboard DNA to our procurement processes to materialise synergies, and we are now looking for opportunities to expand service offerings to Finnish business customers. Recently, we have also taken further steps on our simplification agenda. Yesterday, we announced that we will be entering into a joint venture with Nordic Entertainment Group, combining our satellite-based entertainment businesses to extract synergies and deliver enhanced customer experience. Based on the performance so far this year and our expectations for the fourth quarter, we maintain our outlook for 2019. Execution on our strategic agenda remains our focus and key driver for value creation going forward,” External link

Sigve Brekke said ( about Commission ) : “The strategic agenda we initiated two years ago continued to bear fruit in the second quarter. Although organic subscription and traffic revenues declined by 1 percent, the EBITDA margin was 40 percent and we saw positive revenue development and effects from efficiency and modernisation programmes. Our underlying financial performance remains stable. Across our markets, results show that the momentum set at the start of the year continues. In Norway, we see mobile ARPU growth of 2 percent. Preparations for 5G are ongoing through pilots and network upgrades. There is good traction on fibre rollout and copper infrastructure replacement, which will enable customers to connect faster and more reliably. In Thailand and Myanmar, we have seen improved revenue growth during the year. Investments made in Thailand are showing results, building a foundation for future growth. Subscription and traffic revenue growth in Bangladesh was 13 percent. During the quarter, 2.3 million new customers joined our networks globally. Our acquisition of a majority stake in Finland’s DNA has been approved by the European Commission, and we expect completion of the deal in August. Following completion, we will launch a mandatory tender offer for the remaining shares in the company.
