Haim Romano

Thank you, Gideon. Good morning to everyone in US and good afternoon to everyone elsewhere. First, it’s my first conference call. I’m the CEO of Orange in the last six weeks. And it’s a great pleasure to be here again, as you well know, I was one of the founders of the company in ‘98 and left the company in 2005, and now I have the privilege to be here again as the CEO of the company.

What we can see here is continuing of the trend of the first half of the year. The final – the financial results of the third quarter reflect the impact of the regulatory change, including a reduction of the interconnect tariff together with increasing of the competition in the cellular market. These two operational conditions require Partner to prepare and act accordingly while maintaining the company assets and improving operational processes. My first and most pressing task is to refocus on the organizational towards the customers.

Partner has long tradition of treating the customers as one of its main assets. We will continue to take all measures, all necessary steps and action in order to safeguard these key strategic assets. We are implementing now a number of measures aimed to improve the interface of the customer satisfaction and simplicity, and then to increase the customer satisfaction. We expect them to step – improve level of customer service and be well known as the best customer service in Israel as we used to be before. The changes ahead of us are not easy to take, but we are persistent and we’re going to do it the way that we did it before and we are sure that we can do it again.
