Consolidated Operating Revenues

Mobile Services

As of June 30, 2017 mobile clients amounted to 22.0 million.

Third Parties Revenues amounted to P$21,188 million (+15.5% vs. 1H16) thanks to a commercial strategy of innovation that boosts the consumption of mobile internet services through an updated offer of plans suitable for all market segments. 

Telecom Personal in Argentina

As of June 30, 2017, Personal reached 19.5 million subscribers in Argentina, where postpaid clients represented 33% of the subscriber base.

In 1H17, Third Parties Revenues reached P$19,871 million (+P$2,775 million or +16.2% vs. 1H16) while Service Revenues (excluding equipment sales) amounted to P$16,492 million (+25.3% vs. 1H16), with 47.2% corresponding to mobile internet revenues (vs. 35.5% as in 1H16), as Mobile Internet Revenues amounted to P$7,776 million (+66.5% vs. 1H16).

Meanwhile, Revenues from Inbound Mobile Services amounted to P$1,323 million (+82.5% vs. 1H16), increase that was mainly generated by price increases in CPP and TLRD. In addition, equipment sales decreased by -14.2% vs. 1H16, reaching P$3,379 million, equivalent to 17.0% of total revenues.

The average monthly revenue per user ('ARPU') amounted to $135.3 during 1H17 (+27.5% vs. 1H16).

Commercial Initiatives

During 2Q17, Personal and Arnet evolved their brand concept through the resignification of the slogan: 'Internet para que todo suceda' ('Internet to make it all happen'), based on a more integrative and functional proposal, aligned with the offer of services and solutions that the Companies provide to their customers.

In this sense, in order to continue promoting the customers' technological evolution towards 4G, Personal expanded the amount of data included in the mobile plans of Postpaid and Monthly Fee client segments. In addition, Personal added to its wide range of state-of-the-art devices the latest worldwide-launched smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 + and the Moto G5 Plus.

In addition, Personal continues to develop an offer of devices oriented towards IOT (Internet of the Things), with the launch of Personal Bipy, the first in a series of device releases that are tailored to the connectivity needs of the entire family. Personal Bipy is a smart watch that allows children to remain connected to their parents when they aren't physically near, through an application on their cellphone that allows parents to be aware of their location and speak to them, giving tranquility to the whole family. It is sold with the first IOT plan launched in the market.

Telecom Personal in Paraguay ('Núcleo')  

As of June 30, 2017, Núcleo's subscriber base reached 2.5 million clients. Prepaid and postpaid customers represented 83% and 17%, respectively.

Núcleo generated revenues from Third Parties equivalent to P$1,317 million during 1H17 (+5.0% vs. 1H16). Internet revenues amounted to P$584 million (+30.9% vs. 1H16) representing 46.1% of 1H17 service revenues (vs. 39.5% in 1H16).

Fixed Services (Voice, Internet and Data)

During 1H17, Revenues generated by Fixed Services amounted to P$9,331 million, +33.5% vs. 1H16; with Voice revenues increasing by +44.5% vs. 1H16, mainly influenced by price increases in monthly fees. Meanwhile, Internet revenues grew by +29.3% vs. 1H16 and Data Revenues were up by +20.3%.

Voice

Total Voice revenues reached P$3.976 million in 1H17 (+44.5% vs. 1H16). This increase is explained mainly by price increases that came into effect in both corporate and residential segments during 1Q17, and additionally due to the offer of bundled packs that include voice and internet services ('Arnet + Voz'), that aim to achieve higher levels of customer loyalty and churn reduction.

As a result, the average monthly revenue billed per user ('ARBU') reached P$140.9 in 1H17, +61.5% vs. 1H16.

Internet

As of June 30, 2017, Telecom reached 1.7 million ADSL accesses. These connections represented 44.9% of Telecom's fixed lines in service. In addition, ADSL ARPU reached P$344.0 in 1H17, +35.3% when compared to 1H16 while the monthly churn rate decreased reaching 1.4% in 1H17 vs. 1.5% in 1H16. Clients with ultra broadband or UBB services (speeds of 15Mb or higher) currently represent 15% of the total customer base as of 1H17.

Within the framework of the evolution of the brand concept generated through the resignification of the slogan: 'Internet para que todo suceda', and aiming to provide a comprehensive solution for connected households, the convergent service proposal that integrates the services of 'Arnet, Personal and Telecom' was renewed through the offer of a 'Combo Único' that includes more internet - through all supported devices – in order to be connected at maximum speed, both indoor and outdoor.

Data

Data revenues (services mainly offered to Corporate, SME and Government segments) amounted to P$1,686 million (+P$284 million or +20.3% vs. 1H16), that evidence the strong position of Telecom as an integrated ICT provider. This increase was mainly due to FX rate variations that affected those contracts that are adjusted by the $/U$S exchange rate and due to the increase in the number of clients.

With the objective of providing value to the strategic segment of Small and Medium Enterprises, the Telecom Group presented its Partners program through strategic alliances with SMEs that offer productivity solutions (online CRM, online advertising, website design, among others) that aim to solve needs of services that other companies or professionals have; and which are looking to acquire simple and fast solutions to boost their business without investing in IT infrastructure (servers) and software licenses. The objective of the Telecom Group is to enhance the development of the Partners by accessing the virtualized components of Telecom's main Datacenter, with a differential offer, support, co-branding and billing integration.

Consolidated Operating Costs

Consolidated Operating Costs totaled P$24,732 million in 1H17, an increase of P$3,018 million, or +13.9% vs. 1H16 (including 'Disposals and impairment of PP&E' that resulted in a loss of P$101 million in 1H17 vs. a loss of P$149 million in 1H16). Continuing with the trend observed during the last quarter, this overall increase is below inflation levels or Revenue growth, which allowed a significant increase in the Company's EBITDA and to improve its margin. This was a result of a higher level of efficiency in the cost structure. Higher costs are mainly associated to the effect of a highly competitive environment in the mobile and Internet businesses, the impact of higher direct and indirect labor costs generated by the operations in Argentina, the increase in fees for services related to price adjustments in supplier contracts, increases in taxes and fees with regulatory authorities, in bad debt expenses and higher D&A, that were partially offset by lower cost of handsets sold, VAS costs and commissions, among others.

The cost breakdown is as follows:

- Employee benefit expenses and severance payments totaled P$5,878 million (+32.5% vs. 1H16), mainly affected by increases in salaries to unionized and non-unionized employees together with the associated social security contributions. Finally, total employees at the end of 1H17 amounted to 15,570.

- Interconnection costs and other telecommunication charges (including TLRD, Roaming, Interconnection, international settlement charges and lease of circuits) amounted to P$1,532 million, +15.2% vs. 1H16. This increase resulted mainly from higher costs related to TLRD, partially offset by lower costs related to international roaming.

- Fees for services, maintenance, materials and supplies amounted to P$2,959 million (+26.7% vs. 1H16), mainly due to costs' increases in software maintenance in the fixed segment and systems' licenses in the mobile segment. There also were increases in costs associated with fees for services, mainly related to call centers and higher costs recognized to suppliers in both mobile and fixed segments.

- Taxes and fees with regulatory authorities reached P$2,870 million (+15.1% vs. 1H16), impacted mainly by higher revenues, as well as higher bank debit and credit taxes related to collection flows and payments to suppliers in 1H17 vs. 1H16.

- Commissions (Commissions paid to agents, prepaid card commissions and others) totaled P$1,803 million (-2.5% vs. 1H16). Decrease in commissions (before SAC capitalization, P$2,318 million in 1H17 vs. P$2,524 million in 1H16) is mainly due to a reduction in commissions paid to commercial channels, associated with lower levels of additions as well as lower handset sales, and also due to greater efficiencies of a new agent remuneration model, and reduction in collection, CPP and other fees. Agent commissions capitalized as SAC amounted to P$515 million (-23.6% vs. 1H16), being the reduction related to a lower level of additions.

- Cost of handsets sold totaled P$2,769 million (-10.2% vs. 1H16), this decrease was mainly due to a reduction in quantities of handsets sold, given the modification in strategy where the effort was centered more in the change of devices in order to achieve higher upselling of mobile plans and less on capture operations, partially offset by higher cost per device. Deferred costs from SAC amounted to P$37 million (-33.9% vs. 1H16). Lower deferred costs were derived from lower quantities of equipment sales during the six month period.

- Advertising amounted to P$479 million (+29.1% vs. 1H16), due to new advertising campaigns launched by the Group in 2017.

- Depreciation and Amortization reached P$3,392 million (+17.2% vs. 1H16). PP&E depreciation amounted to P$2,435 million (+22.9% vs. 1H16) resulting from the incorporation of assets related to the investment plan that the Group has been executing; the amortization of SAC and service connection costs that totaled P$779 million (+10.3% vs. 1H16); the amortization of 3G/4G licenses that amounted to P$163 million (-15.5% vs. 1H16), due to the extension in the duration of the license as the 700MHz band remains partially unavailable, and the amortization of other intangible assets that reached P$15 million (+15.4% vs. 1H16).

- Other Costs totaled P$2,949 million (+6.3% vs. 1H16), of which Bad debt expenses reached P$675 million (+30.3% vs. 1H16), mainly influenced by the financing plans for the sale of handsets in the mobile business, representing 2.7% of consolidated costs and 2.2% of consolidated revenues; this increase was partially offset by a decrease on VAS costs that totaled P$466 million (-41.2% vs. 1H16), due to a redesign in the offer of these services.

Consolidated Financial Results

Net Financial Results totaled a loss of P$260 million, which represented an improvement of P$786 million vs. 1H16. This was mainly due to lower financial costs generated by a lower loss in net financial interests of P$301 million in 1H17 (+P$380 million vs. 1H16) and lower losses on FX results net of NDF instruments for P$302 million in 1H17 (vs. a loss of P$558 million in 1H16) mainly due to a reduction in the peso depreciation occurred since December 2016 in comparison with 1H16. Meanwhile, gains on mutual funds and other investments amounted to P$387 million (+P$155 million vs. 1H16), due to higher yields obtained in such instruments and an increase in the invested balances.

Consolidated Net Financial Position

As of June 30, 2017, Net Financial Debt Position (Cash, Cash Equivalents and financial Investments minus Loans) totaled P$775 million, a decrease of P$4,647 million when compared to the Net Financial Position as of June 30, 2016, mostly due to an increase in operating cash flow during 1H17; this latter improvement was both due to the increase in EBITDA and a greater efficiency in working capital management.

Capital Expenditures

During 1H17, the Company invested P$4,023 million (-10.5% vs. 1H16). Of this amount, P$1,808 million were allocated to Fixed Services and P$2,215 million to Mobile services, focusing on projects that maximize network capacity and on the development of products and services that contribute to address the customers needs that today demand for connectivity and data availability. In relative terms, Capex reached 13.2% of consolidated revenues vs. 17.7% in 1H16.

In terms of infrastructure, the deployment of the 4G/LTE network continued throughout the country, reaching 910 cities, and 78% of the population of Argentina (93% of the population in capital cities), along with technological reconversion of the 2G and 3G networks.
