Financial Results

For the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, our consolidated revenue increased by 7% to €1.09 billion and 6% to €4.27 billion respectively, as compared to the corresponding prior year periods. Besides acquisitions, including Aster in Poland, and favorable foreign currency (“FX”) movements, our revenue growth for both periods primarily resulted from continued volume growth in RGUs. Neutralizing the impact of acquisitions and FX, we achieved year-over-year rebased revenue growth of 3% for both the three-month and full-year 2012 periods. For the last three years, our annual rebased revenue growth has consistently averaged 3%.
