Q1 2015 Highlights

Strong mobile end-user service revenue and EBITDA growth for the Group

In the quarter net sales grew by 6 percent to SEK 6,511 (6,152) million driven by strong performance in mobile end user service revenue, which grew by 10 percent (partially due to FX effects), and amounted to SEK 3,184 (2,904) million.

Healthy top and bottom line progress in Mobile Tele2 Sweden

Mobile end-user service revenue in Tele2 Sweden grew by more than 5 percent in Q1 2015 and EBITDA increased to SEK 893 (745) million, both positively impacted by accelerated data usage in predominantly the postpaid segment, driven by the introduction of larger data bucket offers. Mobile equipment revenue amounted to SEK 584 (467) million, as a result of maintained strong 4G smartphone sales.

Maintained positive customer intake within mobile for Tele2 Netherlands

Mobile end-user service revenue amounted to SEK 305 (273) million, growing by 12 percent in Q1 2015. EBITDA amounted to SEK –106 (–36) million, affected by higher national roaming costs due to rapidly growing data consumption and further investments to build the n ew MNO organization.

Much improved customer intake for Tele2 Kazakhstan

Customer intake in Tele2 Kazakhstan increased to 428,000 (20,000) in Q1 2015, due to new price plans as a reaction to increased competition.

As a result, Mobile end-user service revenue grew by 46 percent (partially due to FX effects) in Q1 2015, amounting to SEK 315 (216) million despite being impacted by increased competitive pressure. Due to increased acquisition costs driven by a strong customer intake, EBITDA amounted to SEK 0 (1) million.
