Commenting on the second quarter 2013 results, Mr. Haim Romano, Partner's CEO, said:

The results of the second quarter of 2013 continue to reflect, on the one hand, the ongoing impact of the competition in the market and, on the other hand, our investment in the Company's key assets: high quality customer service, technological advancement and the most advanced network. At the same time, we are adjusting our business operations, our marketing approach and the cost structure of the Company, measures which resulted in a decline of NIS 153 million in the Company's operating expenses compared to the second quarter of 2012.

During the quarter, we continued to invest in enhancing the quality of the cellular network (Orange ultranet), which includes: sharp and clear voice quality using HD voice technology, enabling extended battery life by up to approximately 40 percent, the fastest browsing speed in Israel and advanced 4G services (LTE ready services). The Company continues to improve and develop its IT and data systems and provides service solutions which are intuitive and user friendly in the digital space. The Company's investments totaled this quarter approximately NIS 122 million.
