Vivendi: Growth In 2010 Earnings

Mobile revenues 6 reached €8,930 million, a 0.6% decrease compared to 2009. Mobile service revenues 7 decreased by 1.1% to €8,420 million. Excluding the impact of the 31% and 33% mobile voice termination regulated price cuts on July 1, 2009 and July 1, 2010 respectively, the 33% SMS voice termination regulated price cut on February 1, 2010 and the roaming tariff cuts resulting from regulatory decisions, mobile service revenues increased by 4.8%.

In 2010, SFR achieved good commercial results, adding almost 1,288,000 new postpaid net adds, in particular due to the success of smartphones and offers including an Internet remote access. 28% of SFR customers were equipped with a smartphone at the end of December 2010 (compared to 15% at end of 2009) allowing a data revenue growth of 16% in 2010. At the end of 2010, SFR’s postpaid mobile customer base reached 16.095 million, improving the customer mix by 3.0 percentage points year-on-year to attain 75.6%. SFR’s total mobile customer base reached 21.303 million.

SFR and La Poste entered into an agreement for the launch of a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) in the second quarter of 2011 that is expected to become one of the market leaders.

Broadband Internet and fixed revenues 6 were €3,944 million, a 4.5% increase compared to 2009, reflecting an excellent commercial performance from the broadband Internet mass market segment (for which revenues increased by 11.9%) as well as a dynamic Enterprise segment.

SFR added 443,000 net new active broadband internet residential customers, representing a market share of more than 30% 8. At the end of 2010, the broadband Internet residential customers base totaled 4.887 million, a 10.0% increase year-on-year. Additionally, SFR has benefitted from the success of the new neufbox Evolution which was launched on November 16, 2010 and has attracted more than 200,000 customers at the end of February.

SFR reached an important step regarding the fiber-optic deployment with the signature of an agreement with Bouygues Telecom to share their investments and their fiber horizontal networks in some cities within very concentrated areas.
