Cesareo Alierta Izuel

Thank you, María. Good morning to everybody. As you can see, our second quarter results saw a significant improvement quarter-on-quarter. We delivered the performance across all the metrics from OIBDA to net income in underlying terms. OIBDA in absolute level rose on a quarterly basis, and profitability enhanced sequentially, with quarter-on-quarter growth across the board. This result today show the benefit of our diversification or key strengths to face very different realities, with a positive revenue growth on the part of further commercial push and a very solid evolution in Latin America. On top of that, we have been taking broad actions to improve market dynamics and enhance our business model through efficiency gains, like the removal of fast handset subsidies in Spain and the gradual reduction in the U.K., and the network sharing agreement reached in U.K. and in Mexico. In addition, the recent news of our regulation in Europe, points to a drastic change in the way this telco industry has been regulated in recent years and had very, very positive signal for the sector as a whole.
