COMMENTS FROM CEO, KAAN TERZIOGLU

"Encouraged by double record, we have raised our EBITDA target

Third quarter is marked with our bold steps, crowned by solid financial and operational results. In this period, we, once again, earned the confidence of the financial markets in Turkey and Turkcell. Therefore, we are glad to present an outstanding performance, recorded in a tough macroeconomic environment, and one that reflects the harmony between the Board of Directors, senior management and our team.

Turkcell Turkey and Turkcell Group generated their all-time-highest revenue and EBITDA. Turkcell Turkey's revenues, accounting for 91% of total Group revenues, increased 9.9%, generating an EBITDA margin of 34.5%. Group revenues reached TRY3,364 million on 6.4% growth, while EBITDA rose 10.5% to TRY1,161 million. The EBITDA margin rose 1.3 percentage points to 34.5%. Proforma Group net income (excluding non-recurring items 1), reached TRY707 million on 17.8% growth, while the reported net income as per IFRS was TRY630 million.

Based on our nine months' Group performance of 5.5% revenue growth with an EBITDA margin of 32.7%, we expect to exceed our full year EBITDA target*. In this regard, we have upgraded our full year EBITDA margin guidance range to 32%-32.5% from 31%-32%, and revised our revenue growth forecast to 10% for Turkcell Turkey and 6% for the Group from the previous 6%-9% range.

Our postpaid customer base has continued to grow; total customers has exceeded 34 million

While our total customer base grew by 271 thousand, blended mobile ARPU increased by 9.7% year-on-year to TRY26.1, the highest level in the mobile sector for the quarter. This achievement came on the back of a 278 thousand quarterly increase of postpaid customer base, which has exceed 16 million, increased mobile services and data usage, and tariff adjustments. With 74 thousand net additions, our fixed broadband customer base exceeded 1.4 million, while residential fixed ARPU reached TRY49.1.

BiP becomes global; demand for Turkcell TV sustains its momentum

We continued to create value for our customers through our services and solutions which we serve through our superior network. Turkcell TV's customer base, reaching 342 thousand with a 131 thousand quarterly increase, has emboldened us in our targets in this arena.

The number of downloads of BiP, which has recently begun to offer video and audio calling features, has reached 1.4 million. Shortly, we will launch BiP, which is already in use in Germany and Northern Cyprus besides Turkey, in Ukraine and Belarus. Meanwhile, Turkey's most widely-used consumer cloud service, Turkcell Smart Storage's active user base exceeded 1.3 million users and the number of downloads of Turkcell Music was almost 1.6 million in the first nine months of 2015.

We have once again confirmed our global credibility as Turkey, and as Turkcell in the international financial markets

Our new vision and the strategic steps we have taken towards achieving this vision were reflected in the financial markets. We have become the only Turkish company with an "investment grade" rating from all three major rating agencies. We raised close to US$2.9 billion in funds within a short period of 2 months for infrastructure investments, restructuring of existing debt, and possible new investment opportunities.

In this regard, first, we signed a long-term loan agreement with five banks for US$500 million and EUR445 million, unsecured and at favorable terms.

We issued a Eurobond in the amount of US$500 million. Our Eurobond issue, at a yield of 5.95 percent, was almost four times oversubscribed, and is the first and only Eurobond sale to be held in the international markets by a Turkish company from the non-financial sector in 2015.

Next, we signed a loan agreement package with China Development Bank for up to EUR500 million with a 2 year availability period, and for up to EUR750 million with a 3 year availability period.

These achievements, once again confirm our global credibility as Turkey, and as Turkcell.

(1)Net Income excluding FX Gain/(Loss) (including tax and minority impact), monetary Gain (inflation impact), interest Income on time deposit, one -off items

We invest in our future, while registering great accomplishments

This quarter, we have continued to invest in new technologies to strengthen our position as an integrated communication and technology services company, one of our strategic priorities. In this regard, we have acquired 47% of the frequency for EUR1.6 billion at the 4.5G tender, which we believe to be a significant milestone for the industry. Having paid the first installment of EUR706 million, including VAT, today, October 27, we received the authorization license at the signing ceremony. With the acquired frequencies and carrier aggregation, we will be the only operator in Turkey with the capability to provide the fastest 4.5G speed of 375 Mbps. Our 4.5G infrastructure, where we expect to offer mobile TV services, will have the technology to support 1Gbps speed with the availability of supporting terminals.

We have taken significant steps towards improving our balance sheet, thereby creating value for our shareholders. We have launched the process of establishing a consumer financing company to further facilitate the financing of the technology demand of our customers. Following the debt restructuring of our international subsidiary Astelit, the debt of BeST, our subsidiary in Belarus, has also been restructured, eliminating the foreign exchange risk arising from the debt of our international subsidiaries.

We are more confident about the future

Going forward, our key priorities will be to strengthen our position in the Turkish telecommunication market as an integrated player, to invest in our superior network infrastructure and to consider global expansion opportunities for further growth.

We would like to congratulate the Turkcell team and all of our stakeholders for their contribution to our success, and to thank our Board of Directors for their continued support."

Revenue of the Group grew by 6.4% year-on-year to TRY3,364 million (TRY3,162 million).

In the third quarter, competitive dynamics in Turkish telecoms market prevailed similar to previous quarters; yet, the quarter was seasonally favorable in terms of customer demand and usage. Meanwhile, higher data incentives in bundle offers led unit prices in the mobile market to decline further. Similarly, in the fixed broadband market, competition revolved around aggressively priced triple play offers. Converged offerings remain at an initial stage with no significant presence.

In this environment, Turkcell Turkey revenues rose by 9.9% to TRY3,074 million (TRY2,797 million) on 10.9% growth in consumer segment revenues to TRY2,402 million (TRY2,167 million) and a 6.5% increase in corporate segment revenues to TRY560 million (TRY525 million). The performance of key revenue drivers was as follows:
  • Consumer and Corporate revenues in total grew by 10.0% to TRY2,962 million (TRY2,692 million).
    • Voice revenues declined by 2.0% to TRY1,539 million (TRY1,570 million). The declining trend slowed down in Q315 mainly through increased consumption.
    • Data revenues increased by 34.2% to TRY975 million (TRY726 million) driven by growth of 37.2% in mobile broadband and 26.0% in fixed broadband revenues with higher smartphone penetration, a larger number of data users and the continued rise in data consumption.
    • Services and solutions revenues rose by 11.3% to TRY316 million (TRY284 million) with the 40.3% growth in services revenues, despite the continued decline in SMS revenues of 11.7%, reflecting the industry trend.
    • Other revenues, including mainly our retail and call center revenues, grew by 18.5% to TRY133 million (TRY112 million).
  • Wholesale revenues grew by 8.5% to TRY130 million (TRY120 million).

Turkcell International revenues fell by 22.9% to TRY235 million (TRY305 million), mainly due to year-on-year currency devaluation in Ukraine and Belarus.

Other subsidiaries' 1 revenues, mainly comprised of our information and entertainment service revenues, contracted by 10.0% to TRY55 million (TRY61 million).

Operational expenses:

Decreased sales and marketing expenses along with lower direct cost of revenues led to improved operational expenses as a percentage of revenues, despite higher general administrative expenses.

Direct cost of revenues as a percentage of revenues declined to 59.1% (59.5%), mainly due to the decrease in interconnect costs (0.7pp), despite the increase in network related expenses (0.2pp) and other cost items (0.1pp) as a percentage of revenues.

Meanwhile, selling and marketing expenses fell by 1.6pp with the decline in selling expenses (1.3pp) on the back of value focused customer acquisition, lower marketing expenses (0.2pp) and other cost items (0.1pp).

EBITDA * grew by 10.5% to TRY1,161 million (TRY1,050 million) year-on-year, while the EBITDA margin reached 34.5% (33.2%) on 1.3pp growth driven by efficiency measures and a focus on higher value generating customers. The decline in selling and marketing expenses of 1.6pp and direct cost of revenues (excluding depreciation and amortization) of 0.3pp more than offset the rise in administrative expenses of 0.6pp.

The EBITDA of Turkcell International declined by 6.0% to TRY70 million (TRY74 million), impacted by the yearly currency devaluation in Ukraine and Belarus. Meanwhile, the EBITDA margin increased 5.3pp to 29.6% (24.3%) with strict operational expense management and the increased share of mobile broadband in the revenue mix of Astelit. The EBITDA of other subsidiaries 1 declined by 13.0% to TRY29 million (TRY34 million).

Net finance income of TRY30 million (TRY142 million) was recorded in Q315. This was mainly driven by higher translation losses of TRY97 million (TRY55 million) along with the decline in interest earned on time deposits to TRY54 million (TRY152 million) on lower cash balance following the dividend distribution. Higher net finance income in Q215 was driven by increased translation gains due to positive quarterly currency movement impact from Ukraine and Turkey operations.

(*)EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See page 14 for the reconciliation of an explanation of how we calculate Adjusted EBITDA to net income.

(1)Other subsidiaries mainly comprise our information and entertainment services business and interbusiness eliminations.

Net income, excluding non-recurring items, increased by 17.8% to TRY707 million (TRY600 million). Reported net income was TRY630 million (TRY755 million) on a 16.5% decline year-on-year, mainly due to higher translation losses and lower interest income earned on time deposits with the lower cash balance despite higher EBITDA registered. Further, no monetary gain was recorded in Q315 as inflationary accounting in Belarus was discontinued in Q115.

Other expenses in Q215 were higher compared to Q315 since we performed payments in relation to commercial agreement terminations. Further, non-controlling interests figure declined in Q315 on a quarter-on-quarter basis as we completed the acquisition of Astelit's remaining shares in this quarter.

Total debt as of September 30, 2015 had decreased to TRY3,466.6 million (US$1,139.1 million) from TRY4,014.2 million (US$1,494.3 million) as of June 30, 2015 in consolidated terms. The decline in debt balance was mainly driven by the payments made to financial institutions in relation to Astelit's debt restructuring. Turkcell Turkey's debt balance was TRY817.0 million (US$268.5 million), of which TRY198.1 million (US$65.1 million) was denominated in US$. The debt balance of Astelit was TRY515.1 million (US$169.3 million), all denominated in local currency. Meanwhile, BeST had a debt balance of TRY7.9 million (US$2.6 million) and the whole amount was denominated in local currency. Remaining debt balance of TRY2,127.0 million (US$698.9 million) following the debt restructuring of Astelit and BeST, all of which is denominated in US$, is planned to be repaid to banks in October 2015 (US$689 million) and December 2015 (US$10 million).

TRY2,295.0 million (US$754.1 million) of our consolidated debt is set at a floating rate, while TRY2,884.3 million (US$947.8 million) will mature within less than a year. (Please note that the figures in parentheses refer to US$ equivalents).

This quarter, we have raised US$2.9 billion equivalent funding to be utilized on a needs basis, mainly to pay the license fee, infrastructure investments, refinancing of subsidiary debt and any other potential investments. The details of new funds are as follows:
  • Turkcell issued a Eurobond with an aggregate principal amount of US$500 million, 10-year maturity, redemption date of October 15, 2025 and a coupon rate of 5.75% based on a 5.95% reoffer yield.
  • Turkcell signed a loan agreement with China Development Bank for amounts of up to EUR500 and EUR750 million, with availability periods of 2 years and 3 years, respectively. The total loan package will have 10 years final maturity with a 3 year grace period and an annual interest rate of EURIBOR + 2.2%.
  • Turkcell signed a loan agreement with BNP Paribas, Citibank, HSBC, ING and Intesa Sanpaolo SpA for an amount of US$500 million and EUR445 million with an availability period until June 30, 2016. The unsecured loan has a 2 year grace period, a 5 year maturity and an annual interest rate of 3 month LIBOR/EURIBOR+ 2.00%.

Cash flow analysis: Capital expenditures, including non-operational items, amounted to TRY634 million in Q315, of which TRY506 million was related to Turkcell Turkey, and TRY126 million to Turkcell International. Net change in debt mainly relates to Astelit's debt restructuring as explained in the total debt section. The cash flow item noted as "other" includes cash inflows in relation to foreign currency valuation impacts (TRY222 million), a decrease in advances given for fixed assets (TRY66 million), and cash outflows in relation to the corporate tax payment of Turkcell Iletisim (TRY110 million), the acquisition of Astelit's remaining shares (TRY268 million) and other working capital (TRY4 million).

In the first nine months of the year, operational capital expenditures at the Group level amounted to TRY1,719 million and stood at 18% of Group revenues.

We opted to make the 4.5G license payment in four installments, and accordingly on October 26 we paid the first installment of EUR706 million, including VAT.

Astelit revenues grew by 3.3% in local currency terms. The growth rate was impacted by the absence of Crimean operations on a yearly comparison basis. Eliminating this impact, Astelit would have recorded 8.7% revenue growth.Astelit recorded a solid 3.3pp improvement in EBITDA margin to 34.9% (31.6%), driven by effective cost management and an increased share of mobile broadband revenues on the back of 3G+ services. Astelit continued its 3G network roll-out, offering the fastest 3G network with triple carrier technology. Three-month active 3G data users on its network reached around 1.7 million, while smartphone users were 45% of the total. Mobile broadband has become the key growth driver for Astelit.Although some easing in the macroeconomic environment was observed with a more stable currency rate, Astelit's financials in Turkish Lira terms continued to be impacted by year-on-year devaluation of the local currency. Accordingly, Astelit's revenues declined by 18.6% to TRY158 million (TRY194 million), while EBITDA fell by 10.1% to TRY55 million (TRY61 million). On the other hand, having completed the debt restructuring of Astelit, the foreign exchange exposure risk on this debt at the Group level was eliminated.Astelit's three-month active subscriber base reached 10.8 million (10.6 million) with 167 thousand quarterly net additions. Blended ARPU (3-month active) contracted by 3.2% to UAH36.7 (UAH37.9), mainly due to the lower frequency and duration of international calls. MoU (12-month active) fell by 13.5% to 145.4 minutes (168.1 minutes) due to changing consumer behavior.

(1) We may occasionally offer campaigns and tariff schemes that have an active subscriber life differing from the one that we normally use to deactivate subscribers and calculate churn.(2) Active subscribers are those who in the past three months made a revenue generating activity.(*) Since July 10, 2015, we hold a 100% stake in Astelit.(**)During 3rd quarter of 2015, foreign exchange gains and losses arising from receivable from or payable to a foreign operation, the settlement of which is neither planned nor likely occur in the foreseeable future, have been considered to form part of a net investment in a foreign operation and are recognized directly in equity in the foreign currency translation differences in the consolidated financial statements. Exchange differences arising in the foreign operations' individual financial statements which have been recognized directly in equity in the foreign currency translation differences in the consolidated financial statements have been eliminated from the individual financial statements above for reporting purposes.

BeST's financial performance continued to be impacted by the macroeconomic environment in Belarus. The local currency further depreciated by 15% against the US$ during the quarter.

In TRY terms, BeST's revenues remained nearly flat at TRY39 million (TRY40 million) with an improved EBITDA margin of 2.1% (2.0%). In local currency terms, however, revenues rose by 16.7% with the expanding three-month active subscriber base reaching 1.1 million along with increased voice and mobile broadband usage.

As disclosed, Best's total existing intragroup loans were converted into a EUR$610 million subordinated loan, directly from Turkcell. Accordingly, the foreign currency exposure risk in relation to the debt of Belarusian operations has been eliminated from our Group financials.

KKTCELL's revenues decreased by 6.7% to TRY33 million (TRY36 million) and EBITDA declined by 10.6% to TRY13 million (TRY14 million) leading to an EBITDA margin of 38.0% (39.8%). This was driven by regulatory amendment regarding the maximum price ceiling, termination rates and additional frequency fees.

Fintur's subscribers increased by 75 thousand net additions during the quarter mainly driven by increase in Geocell subscribers. Its revenues fell by 27.7% year-on-year, mainly due to the decrease in both Kcell and Azercell revenues. While Kcell revenues were impacted by a continued price war and devaluation of the Kazakhstani Tenge against the US$, the decline in Azercell revenues was due to decreased voice and SMS revenues. The contribution of Fintur to Group net income decreased to US$28million (US$30 million) year-on-year.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASUREMENTS: We believe Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, facilitates performance comparisons from period to period and management decision making. It also facilitates performance comparisons from company to company. Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure eliminates potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact of changes in effective tax rates on periods or companies) and the age and book depreciation of tangible assets (affecting relative depreciation expense). We also present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating the performance of other mobile operators in the telecommunications industry in Europe, many of which present Adjusted EBITDA when reporting their results.

Our Adjusted EBITDA definition includes Revenue, Direct Cost of Revenue excluding depreciation and amortization, Selling and Marketing expenses and Administrative expenses, but excludes translation gain/(loss), finance income, share of profit of equity accounted investees, gain on sale of investments, income/(loss) from related parties, minority interest and other income/(expense).

Nevertheless, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation from, or as a substitute for analysis of, our results of operations, as reported under IFRS.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS: This release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Safe Harbor provisions of the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

More generally, all statements other than statements of historical facts included in this press release, including, without limitation, certain statements regarding our operations, financial position and business strategy may constitute forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as, among others, "will," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "believe", "continue" and "guidance". Although Turkcell believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable at this time, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us are expressly qualified in their entirety by reference to these cautionary statements.
