B Communications Reports Financial Results For The Second Quarter Of 2012

B Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ Global Market: BCOM)(TASE: BCOM) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Bezeq - On-Track Performance: The Bezeq Group reported another stable quarter, delivering revenues of NIS 2.6 billion ($ 661 million) and operating profit of NIS 746 million ($ 190 million) for the period. Bezeq’s EBITDA for the second quarter totaled NIS 1.1 billion ($ 281 million), representing an EBITDA margin of 42.5%. Net income for the period attributable to the shareholders of the Company totaled NIS 415 million ($ 106 million). Bezeq's cash flow from operating activities totaled NIS 990 million ($ 252 million) during the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Dividend from Bezeq: On May 22, 2012, B Communications received two dividend payments from Bezeq totaling NIS 489 million ($ 125 million), consisting of a current dividend of NIS 334 million ($ 85 million), representing B Communications’ share of Bezeq’s net profit for the second half of 2011, and a special dividend of NIS 155 million ($ 40 million), representing the third installment of the six special dividend payments declared by Bezeq and approved by its shareholders last year.

B Communications used the dividend proceeds for three purposes: (1) payment of NIS 254 million ($ 65 million) of its current loan repayment commitment, in-line with the original debt repayment schedule; (2) pre-payment of an additional NIS 188 million ($ 48 million) of its bank debt, consisting of a NIS 82 million ($ 21 million) pre-payment of short term debt originally scheduled for payment in November 2012 and a NIS 106 million ($ 27 million) pre-payment of a “bullet” principal payment due in November 2016, thereby reducing the size of the original NIS 700 million ($ 178 million) "bullet" loan to NIS 32 million ($ 8 million); and (3) increasing current cash balances with the remaining NIS 47 million ($ 12 million).
