  • As previously announced, starting from Q115, we now have three reporting segments:

    • "Turkcell International" which comprises all of our telecom related businesses outside of Turkey.
    • "Other subsidiaries" which is mainly comprised of our information and entertainment services, call center business revenues, financial services revenues and inter-business eliminations. Call centers were previously included in Turkcell Turkey but are, with effect from the fourth quarter of 2015, now included in "Other subsidiaries". We have made this change because we believe that our third party call center revenues are not telecom related. All figures presented in this document for prior periods have been restated to reflect this change.

COMMENTS BY KAAN TERZIOGLU, CEO

With our value driven and service focused approach, we have begun generating returns from our 4.5G investments

We registered all-time-high revenue and EBITDA, both at the Turkcell Turkey and Turkcell Group level in the first nine months. In the third quarter, Turkcell Group achieved the highest growth level of the past three years at 8.8% with a performance that improved every quarter. The EBITDA margin was at 33.3% in the same period. In the aftermath of a treasonous July 15 th coup attempt, we fulfilled our duty of delivering accurate and timely information by providing free emergency communication packages to our customers. Revenue growth and EBITDA margin would have been 10.4% and 34.4% respectively, excluding the effect of these packages.

In the first nine months of the year, Turkcell Turkey, generating 90% of Group revenues, continued its growth at 8.6%, recording an EBITDA margin of 31.9%. Group revenues rose 8.6% to TRY10.2 billion, while EBITDA increased 5.4% to TRY3.2 billion on a 31.7% EBITDA margin. Proforma Group net income 1 was at TRY1.8 billion, while net income as per IFRS was at TRY1.1 billion. With these results, which are in line with our plans, we reiterate our 2016 full year guidance of 8%-10% revenue growth, a 31%-33% EBITDA margin and an operational capex to sales ratio of 25%, the latter of which we had revised in Q216. 2

In the first nine months of 2016, we continued our 4.5G investments at full speed. With our 4.5G investments, we registered an operational capex to sales ratio of 21.5% for the first nine months of the year. As of today, our 4.5G customers have reached 19 million 3, while 22% of total data traffic has derived from our 4.5G network. With the contribution of 4.5G users, data usage per customer increased 61% to 2.6GB compared to last year. Our smartphone penetration in Turkey, gaining momentum, reached 62% at the end of the third quarter. Our data and services&solutions revenues grew by 76.5% year-on-year through our investments and increasing customer demand.

Turkcell Turkey: Our subscriber numbers are rising due to converged services that differentiate us in user experience

During the third quarter of 2016, the total number of subscribers in the five countries where we have direct operations were at 49.7 million with 34.8 4 million subscribers being from Turkey. Meanwhile, Turkcell Turkey continued to gain mobile, fiber and TV subscribers in the quarter, with mobile subscribers up 179 thousand to 32.8 million. Postpaid customers rose by 897 thousand year-on-year to 52% of our mobile subscriber base. Fiber subscribers in the fixed segment rose by 140 thousand year-on-year to 992 thousand, with total fixed subscribers exceeding 1.7 million.

In line with our convergence strategy, the mobile triple play ratio, which includes customers of voice, data and services combined reached 28% 5, while multiplay with TV 6 service users registered at 34%.

(1) We use "proforma net income" as a means of presenting our net income net of certain non-operating items and items that we believe are non-recurring. We define "proforma net income" in this document as net income excluding FX gain / (loss) (including tax and minority impact), interest Income on time deposits of Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri, interest expense on loans & borrowings, share of profit of equity accounted investees (Fintur), 4.5G license amortization and one-off items. Please note that this is a non-GAAP measure and that we may in future presentations change the scope of items that we deduct from net income to arrive at "proforma net income."(2) Please note that this paragraph contains forward looking statements based on our current estimates and expectations regarding market conditions for each of our different businesses. No assurance can be given that actual results will be consistent with such estimates and expectations. For a discussion of factors that may affect our results, see our Annual Report on Form 20-F for 2015 filed with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and in particular, the risk factor section therein.(3) Customers registered to 4.5G services through SMS confirmation(4) Total of mobile, fixed and IPTV subscribers(5) Breakdown among mobile voice users which excludes subscribers who do not use their line in the last 3 months(6) Multiplay customers with TV: Internet + TV users & internet + TV + voice users

With the rise in postpaid base and data and service revenues, ARPU from mobile subscribers rose 6.9% year-on-year to TRY27.9. Excluding the free emergency communication package impact, ARPU would have increased by 8.8% to TRY28.4. Meanwhile, fixed residential ARPU rose 5.1% to TRY51.6.

English Premier League now on Turkcell TV+

In the third quarter, Turkcell TV+ became the official broadcaster of the UK's Premier League, which is considered one of the world's most prestigious football leagues. On the mobile platform, the Premier League is now available exclusively through Turkcell TV+. Along with the English Premier League, Turkcell TV+ providing privileged coverage to sports fans, also holds the broadcasting rights for the Bundesliga, NBA and Formula 1. We will continue to provide diversified services to our customers on our 4.5G platform, which has the widest spectrum. In this context, we remain excited about the upcoming Turkish Super League live broadcast tender, and the possibility of broadcasting it through our mobile TV platform, with a view to providing football content to even more people.

Our Digital Services attract global attention

Innovation in our digital services, our key focal point, has continued in this quarter. Developed entirely with national resources, BiP continues to attract interest from all over the world, including Europe and the USA. Having been downloaded more than 10 million times in 192 countries, BiP has been a major success within a short period of time. As the number of customers who downloaded the application from abroad exceeded 1 million, BiP has progressed towards becoming a global brand. BiP, a new dimension in the concept of communication, has marked a world-first with its fax service through BiP message.

Meanwhile, fizy, one of Turkey's largest music platforms, integrated with video clips and live concerts, has reached one million users by broadcasting Open Air Concerts, becoming Turkey's largest digital concert broadcaster. Elsewhere, the "Hello Hope" application was developed by Turkcell to meet the communication needs of Syrian refugees by making their lives easier through language assistance. The app, operational on all-access, has exceeded 100 thousand active users in just one month. Meanwhile, Turkey's first and only integrated game platform, Gamecell, made a fast entry into the games market, which has an estimated size of TRY2 billion. The platform, which currently offers around 2,000 games, will also enable its users to build their teams and participate in tournaments, besides the opportunity of following the latest developments in the games industry.

We confidently work towards achieving our 2016 targets and keenly look forward to 2017

We have progressed in line with our plans over the past nine months, despite macroeconomic and geopolitical challenges. We expect to meet our year-end operational and financial targets, and are working towards a strong start to 2017. In this regard, to create more value for our stakeholders through maximizing the value of the strategic assets on our balance sheet, we are evaluating all options accordingly. We are currently evaluating various strategic alternatives for Fintur, in which we own a 41.45% stake, including its sale, following the inconclusive negotiations with Telia Company regarding the acquisition of the remaining stake in this asset.

Global Tower is another strategic asset on our balance sheet. With a view to a more focused management of Global Tower, and to transforming it into a regional tower company, the first planned step was its initial public offering, now postponed to 2017. Investor interest in Global Tower during its IPO process has strengthened our confidence in our tower business model.

We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our Board of Directors and the Turkcell team for their outstanding performance, dedication and compassion, which fully embodies the Turkcell spirit.

Please note that this is a non-GAAP measure and that we may in future presentations change the scope of items that we deduct from net income to arrive at "proforma net income."

Revenues of the Group rose by 8.8% year-on-year in Q316, in line with our full-year guidance. In July, we provided free of charge emergency packages to our customers for their communication needs following the coup attempt in Turkey. Excluding the impact of emergency packages, our Group revenues would have risen by 10.4%.

Turkcell Turkey revenues, constituting 90% of Group revenues, grew by 7.9% to TRY3,276 million (TRY3,035 million). Excluding the impact of the aforementioned emergency packages, Turkcell Turkey revenue growth would have been 9.7%. The rise in Turkcell Turkey revenues was driven by a 9.2% increase in consumer segment revenues to TRY2,626 million (TRY2,404 million), and 3.4% rise in corporate segment revenues to TRY536 million (TRY519 million).

Consumer and corporate segment revenues in total grew by 8.2% to TRY3,162 million (TRY2,992 million). Our data and services&solutions revenues, comprising 60% of Turkcell Turkey revenues, rose by 76.5% to TRY1,972 million (TRY1,117 million).

Following the launch of 4.5G, more than 90% of our investments, cost base and our customers' consumption are now data related. Hence, with the annulment of the minimum price rule regulation in Turkey, we are now able to reflect this reality in our tariffs and campaigns.

Demand for our 4.5G services continued to increase in Q316. Accordingly, 22% of our data traffic, which rose 23% for the quarter, came through our 4.5G network. Our 4.5G subscribers consumed 2.1 times more data per month as compared to a non 4.5G user. Coupled with higher smartphone penetration of 62% and increased data users overall, data revenues rose by 80.8% to TRY1,699 million (TRY940 million). Mobile broadband revenues grew by 96.6% to TRY 1,430 million (TRY727 million), while fixed broadband revenues rose by 26.7% to TRY269 million (TRY213 million). Meanwhile, services and solutions revenues grew by 53.8% to TRY273 million (TRY177 million) driven mainly by increased usage of Turkcell TV+, fizy, personal cloud service and other mobile services.

Wholesale revenues grew by 2.2% to TRY133 million (TRY130 million) driven by the rise in carrier traffic.

Turkcell International revenues, comprising 6% of Group revenues, were at TRY222 million (TRY235 million), due to currency devaluation in Ukraine and Belarus as lifecell and BeST grew by 4.7% and 11.0%, respectively in local currency terms.

Other subsidiaries' revenues, at 4% of Group revenues, which includes information and entertainment services, call center revenues and revenues from financial services rose by 69.9% to TRY160 million (TRY94 million). This was mainly driven by the contribution of our consumer finance company, which commenced operations in March 2016.

Direct cost of revenues rose to 64.9% (59.1%) as a percentage of revenues in Q316. This was mainly due to the rise in depreciation and amortization expenses (3.1pp) reflecting the 4.5G license and investments, and various other cost items (2.7pp), mainly arising from our network and retail sales related device costs.

Administrative expenses declined to 4.8% (5.0%) as a percentage of revenues in Q316.

Selling and marketing expenses fell to 12.8% (14.1%) as a percentage of revenues in Q316, driven by the decline in selling expenses (0.7pp) with our value focused customer acquisition strategy, in personnel expenses (0.5pp) and in various other cost items (0.5pp). This more than offset the rise in marketing expenses (0.4pp) related mainly to 4.5G services.

EBITDA 1 rose by 4.9% year-on-year in Q316 with an EBITDA margin of 33.3% (34.5%). Direct cost of revenues (excluding depreciation and amortization) increased by 2.7pp, while administrative expenses and selling and marketing expenses declined by 0.2pp and 1.3pp, respectively. Excluding the impact of emergency packages, EBITDA would have grown by 10.1%, while the EBITDA margin would have been 34.4%.
  • Turkcell Turkey's EBITDA grew by 3.2% to TRY1,095 million (TRY1,061 million), while the EBITDA margin was at 33.4% (34.9%). Excluding the impact of emergency packages, EBITDA would have grown by 8.9%, while the EBITDA margin would have been 34.7%.
  • Turkcell International EBITDA was at TRY60 million (TRY70 million) impacted by year-on-year devaluation in Ukraine and Belarus, while the EBITDA margin was at 27.2% (29.6%).
  • The EBITDA of other subsidiaries rose by 103.8% to TRY62 million (TRY31 million) with the contribution of the financial services business.

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

Net finance expense of TRY163 million (net finance income of TRY30 million) was recorded in Q316. Depreciation of TRY against US$ and EUR led to a higher translation loss of TRY238 million in Q316 compared to TRY97 million in Q315. Moreover, the decline in interest income from time deposits and contracted receivables, as well as the rise in interest expenses in relation to loans and 4.5G payables led to a net finance expense in Q316. Please see Appendix A for translation gain and loss details.

Income tax expense declined 42.0 % year-on-year in Q316. Please see Appendix A for details.

Net income of the Group as per IFRS declined to TRY163 million (TRY630 million) in Q316. This was mainly due to higher quarterly translation losses, the negative contribution of Fintur, as well as increased interest expense on loans and 4.5G payables, and a higher amortization expense due to the 4.5G license. Moreover, in Q316 we booked a provision of TRY138 million to benefit from the tax amnesty based on Article 6736 mainly relating to our special communication tax dispute 1. Proforma net income 2 was at TRY705 million (TRY677 million) in Q316.

The net income of Turkcell Turkey as per IFRS declined to TRY145 million (TRY605 million) in Q316, mainly due to the reasons explained above with respect to the decline in Group net income. Proforma net income 2 was at TRY662 million (TRY649 million) in Q316.

Please see Appendix A for a reconciliation of Group and Turkcell Turkey proforma net income to net income as per IFRS.

(1) For details, please refer to consolidated financial statements and notes as at and for September 30, 2016 under note 20 on our website.(2) We use "proforma net income" as a means of presenting our net income net of certain non-operating items and items that we believe are non-recurring. We define "proforma net income" in this document as net Income excluding FX gain / (loss) (including tax and minority impact), interest Income on time deposits of Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri, interest expense on loans & borrowings, share of profit of equity accounted investees (Fintur), 4.5G license amortization and one-off items. Please note that this is a non-GAAP measure and that we may in future presentations change the scope of items that we deduct from net income to arrive at "proforma net income."

Total debt as of September 30, 2016 rose to TRY8,132 million from TRY7,307 million as of June 30, 2016 mainly due to loans utilized by our consumer finance company and a translation increase in the FX denominated debt portfolio of Turkcell Turkey as TRY depreciated against US$ and EUR.

  • Turkcell Turkey's debt was TRY6,802 million, of which TRY3,195 million (US$1,066 million) was denominated in US$, TRY3,222 (EUR959 million) in EUR and the remaining TRY385 million in TRY.
  • The debt balance of lifecell was TRY345 million, denominated in UAH.
  • Our consumer finance company had a debt balance of TRY980 million denominated in TRY.

In accordance with our hedging policy, in July we engaged in a participating cross currency swap transaction for US$150 million of our Club loan. In August, with the easing in foreign exchange rates we engaged in another participating cross currency swap transaction for another US$100 million of our Club loan. With these transactions, US$250 million of our Club loan with 4 year final maturity and LIBOR + 2% annual interest rate has been swapped to fixed rate TRY denominated liability. Moreover, by converting free cash flow from operations to US$ and EUR, we decreased our foreign exchange risk in Q316. Having taken these actions, Turkcell Group's short position, which was at US$1.2 billion as at the end of Q216, declined to US$0.7 billion as at the end of Q316.

TRY4,865 million of our consolidated debt is set at a floating rate, while TRY1,686 million will mature within less than a year. (Please note that the figures in parentheses refer to US$ or EUR equivalents).

Cash flow analysis: Capital expenditures, including non-operational items amounted to TRY743.2 million in Q316. The cash flow item noted as "other" included the positive impact of decreases in advances given for fixed asset purchases (TRY210 million), prepaid expenses (TRY168 million) and other working capital (TRY 431 million).

Capital expenditures, including non-operational items amounted to TRY2,361.2 million in 9M16. The cash flow item noted as "other" included payment of the second installment of the 4.5G license fee (TRY1,320 million), the negative impact of the increase in advances given for fixed asset purchases (TRY443 million) and the change in other working capital (TRY354 million).

In Q316 and 9M16, operational capital expenditures * at the Group level were at 18.6% and 21.5% of total revenues, respectively.

The mobile customer base grew by 179 thousand quarterly net additions to 32.8 million in total, driven by our value propositions focused on a richer customer experience. The postpaid subscriber base expanded by 218 thousand quarterly and by 897 thousand annual net additions to 17.0 million, comprising 52.0% (47.1%) of the total subscriber base. Meanwhile, customers in the more price-sensitive prepaid segment declined in parallel to our expectations.

The fixed customer base has continued to grow, exceeding 1.7 million on 74 thousand quarterly net additions; 26 thousand were fiber and 48 thousand were ADSL customers. Annually, we registered 296 thousand net additions to our fixed customer base, of which 140 thousand were fiber and 156 thousand were ADSL customers. IPTV customers reached 323 thousand on 20 thousand quarterly and 153 thousand annual net additions. Mobile TV has been downloaded by 2.3 million users to date.

Mobile churn declined to 6.3% (6.9%) year-on-year, while fixed churn was higher at 5.3% (4.4%) in Q316.

Mobile blended ARPU rose by 6.9% with our upsell strategy and focus on high value customer groups, as well as increased package penetration. The triple play ratio, which includes customers of voice, data and services combined reached 28%(1) and contributed to the ARPU rise. Excluding the impact of emergency packages, the mobile ARPU increase would have been 8.8%.

Fixed residential ARPU rose 5.1% with the increase in multiplay customers with TV 2 to 34% of total residential fiber customers, in addition to price increases and upsell efforts.

Mobile MoU rose by 10.7% driven by our increased postpaid base and upsell efforts.

Smartphones on our network increased by 951 thousand quarterly net additions leading to a smartphone penetration rate of 62%. Accordingly, there were 18.5 million smartphones on our network at quarter end, with 50% being 4.5G enabled.

lifecell revenues grew by 4.7% in local currency terms on almost doubling mobile broadband revenues with the higher data usage through the 3G+ network and increased terminal sales following the launch in June 2016. Through its sales network and online store, lifecell offers its customers a portfolio of terminals bundled with its data packages. lifecell is the first operator in Ukraine to be directly involved in terminal sales. Revenue growth was impacted by the MTR cut in October 2015 on a yearly basis. Eliminating this effect, lifecell would have recorded 10.9% revenue growth. Another MTR cut is announced for January 1, 2017 from UAH0.23/min to UAH0.15/min.

lifecell's EBITDA declined by 19.2% in local currency terms with an EBITDA margin of 26.9% (34.9%), due to higher network related costs resulting from the 3G+ roll-out and operational leasing expense post tower related sale and leaseback transactions, plus higher marketing expenses.

lifecell's revenues and EBITDA in TRY terms declined 7.8% and 28.7% year-on-year, respectively, impacted by annual devaluation.

lifecell has continued its rapid 3G+ network roll-out, offering the largest geographical coverage in Ukraine in terms of number of settlements covered. lifecell's 3G+ adoption momentum continued, reaching 3.1 million three-month active 3G data users. Meanwhile, lifecell has more than doubled data usage per user since the introduction of 3G+ with smartphone penetration of 52.7%, the highest rate in the market

lifecell's three-month active subscriber base reached 9.7 million on 62 thousand quarterly net additions. Blended ARPU (3-month active) rose by 16.3% driven by increased mobile broadband usage and smartphone tariffs with higher ARPU. MoU (12-month active) fell by 3.4% due to changing consumer behavior.

All figures presented in this document for prior periods have been restated to reflect this change.(*)BeST, in which we hold an 80% stake, has operated in Belarus since July 2008.(**)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, were considered to form part of a net investment in a foreign operation and were 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 were recognized directly in equity in the foreign currency translation differences in the consolidated financial statements were eliminated from the individual financial statements above for reporting purposes.

BeST revenues grew by 11.0% in Q316 in local currency terms with the expansion of the subscriber base along with increased voice and terminal revenues on higher smartphone sales. EBITDA margin improved by 2.5pp to 4.6% (2.1%), mainly driven by top-line growth and better operational expense management.

BeST's revenues in TRY terms declined 3.3% year-on-year impacted by annual devaluation, while EBITDA in TRY terms more than doubled.

BeST launched 4G services in August with a one month free trial for all customers in partnership with beCloud. From September onwards, a wide range of commercial product portfolios covering packages from 2GB to 50GB have been offered. BeST is committed to offer new mobile services as part of Turkcell's globally relevant services strategy. For now, 4G services are only available in Minsk city centre.

KKTCELL's revenues increased by 2.7% year-on-year to TRY34 million, reflecting mobile broadband growth on the back of higher data demand. EBITDA increased by 7.9% to TRY14 million leading to an EBITDA margin of 40.1% (38.0%).

Fintur's consolidated revenues declined by 38.4% year-on-year in Q316. Still high competition in Kazakhstan pressured Kcell revenues. Year-on-year currency devaluation also impacted Kcell and Azercell revenues negatively. Fintur subscribers increased by 319 thousand quarterly net additions in Q316 to 17.0 million, mainly driven by Kcell and Geocell. Fintur had a negative contribution of US$2 million (US$28 million positive contribution) to Group net income in Q316. This was mainly due to weak operational performance, currency devaluation and impairment.

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. The following table provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated using financial data prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB, to net profit, which we believe is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB.
