Partner Communications Reports Fourth Quarter And Annual 2012 Results1

Stocks in this article: PTNR

Partner Communications Company Ltd. (“Partner” or the “Company") (NASDAQ:PTNR)(TASE:PTNR) , a leading Israeli communications operator, announced today its results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Commenting on the fourth quarter and annual results, Mr. Haim Romano, Partner's CEO, said:

“In 2012, the level of competition in the Israeli telecommunications market greatly intensified and as a result, the significant price erosion in the market impacted the Company's business results as reflected in our financial statements. These trends have continued into the first months of 2013. Nevertheless we have maintained robust free cash flow, whilst continuing to invest in and develop the cellular market's most technologically advanced infrastructure. We have also taken significant efficiency measures which mitigated the impact of these trends on the erosion of the company's profitability.

Despite a substantial decline in revenues, the Company reported strong cash flow before interest payments in 2012 of NIS 1,234 million. At the same time, the Company has significantly reduced net debt by NIS 827 million. Due to the efficiency measures taken by the Company during the past year, operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased by NIS 145 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, while we improved organizational processes and raised the quality of customer services.

The Company has invested approximately NIS 500 million, principally during 2012, in the Orange ultranet upgrade project. Partner's network is currently the fastest 6 and most advanced network in Israel, and is the only network supporting HD voice quality and preparation for 4G technology. To ensure continued technological progress, network availability, internet capacity and other added services at competitive prices, the Company intends to participate in an expected tender for an allocation of new frequencies to be used for 4G.

The Company completed the integration with 012 Smile in most operational areas, enabling the Company to provide further value for our customers through bundled service packages that include cellular, fixed-line and ISP services.”
