Haim Romano

Thank you, Gideon. Good morning, everyone and welcome to our first quarter of 2012 conference call. The financial results of the first quarter reflect the competition in the markets and the challenging times of the cellular industry in Israel over the last past few years.

We continue as planned in some addition of the efficiency measures with a contribution of the decrease of NIS 80 million in operating expenses during the last six months. The full effect of the efficiency plan will be reflected in the upcoming months as we progress with the plan that will be limited.

As part of the overall process, we have reduced the number of positions by 1,440 positions from October 2011 until the end of April 2012. We also allocated a process of full operating merger between partner Orange and 012 Smile and that is expected to be completed in the last – third quarter of this year.
