Telekom Polska : Poland's TPSA Sees Improving Revenue Trends In Coming Quarters

04/26/2012 | 02:57am US/Eastern

Telekomunikacja Polska SA (TPS.WA), Poland's largest telecommunications operator, expects better revenue trends in the coming quarters than in the first quarter, when it posted an adjusted revenue decline of 3.4% on the year, Chief Executive Maciej Witucki said Thursday.

"The revenue trend continues to improve," he said on a conference call. The revenue decline narrowed to 3.4% versus 4.1% a year earlier, but cuts of the regulated prices operators charge each continue to weigh.

"In the coming quarters, we expect a further improvement of revenue trends, strongly supported by the mobile segment," he said.

TPSA said earlier Thursday its first-quarter revenue fell 5.6% to 3.52 billion zlotys ($1.11 billion). The year-earlier figure included broadcasting unit Emitel, which TPSA sold in 2011. Excluding Emitel, revenue fell 3.4% on the year. The company confirmed it expects its full-year revenue to decline by up to 3% this year.

TPSA also said its first-quarter net profit rose 28% on last year, when the figure was hit by asset impairment charges for older mobile networks. Witucki said the company is "moderately satisfied" with its first-quarter performance.

TPSA Thursday confirmed its 2012 guidance for an earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or Ebitda, margin at 35%-37% of revenue, and for net free cash flow at PLN2 billion. Witucki said there are no risks to those targets.
