FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

 

·        Acceleration in the growth of the main financial and operating metrics.

®     Increased value accesses: LTE (+31% y-o-y), smartphones (+6%), FTTx/Cable (+23%; record net additions in the quarter of 724k), mobile contract (+6%; 2.2m net additions, 7-year record), Pay TV (+6%).

®     Revenues (€12,144m; -6.3% y-o-y) accelerated their organic growth to +2.0% in the quarter.

®     April-June OIBDA (€4,237m; +1.9% y-o-y) increased by 4.1% organic (+3.3% in the first quarter) and OIBDA margin expanded (+2.8 p.p. y-o-y; +0.7 p.p. in organic terms).

®     In the second quarter, net income (€902m) grew by 9.9% y-o-y and by 11.0% per share (€0.16).

®     Reported April-June results are affected by net positive impacts in OIBDA (€225m) and negative impacts in net income (-€60m), mainly associated with a favourable court ruling in Brazil, and partial goodwill impairment and tax asset reversal in Mexico.

·        Radical transformation of our networks.

®     47.3m premises passed with FTTx/cable (+15% y-o-y) and LTE coverage of 73% (+6 p.p.).

®     Leaders in network virtualisation and in the creation of a global customer-centric digital ecosystem.

·        Financial flexibility continued increasing.

®     Free cash flow (€1,548m in January-June 2018) grew 32.7% y-o-y excluding spectrum.

®     Net debt (€43,593m at June; -10.1% y-o-y) decreased for the 5th consecutive quarter (-€382m).

·        The Company reiterates its guidance and the dividend announced for 2018.

 

 

Comments from José María Álvarez-Pallete, Executive Chairman:

 

"Telefónica second quarter results showed an improvement in the y-o-y organic growth trends of revenues, OIBDA and OIBDA margin expansion. Moreover, net debt decreased for the fifth consecutive quarter thanks to the strong free cash flow generation (€998 million), which grew by 55% excluding spectrum payment in the UK. These results allow us to reiterate our guidance and dividends for 2018.

Our value offer to customers remains key, and we continue investing and expanding our ultra broadband networks. As of June, we have 47.3m premises passed with proprietary FTTx/cable network, +15% y-o-y. LTE coverage grew by 6 p.p. to an average 73% in all our footprint.

Lastly, we remain convinced that the key levers to a sustainable digital future lie with our capacity to radically transform our networks, create a customer-centric digital ecosystem, establish digitalisation as the cornerstone for generating efficiencies and remain at the vanguard of cognitive intelligence".
