Millicom International Cellular: Results for the Period Ended December 31, 2012

Q4 2012 Highlights

  • Revenue of $1,266 million. Local currency growth of 6.4% YoY, excluding Cablevision, including Online.

Excluding regulatory impacts and reclassifications, the growth would have been 7.6%

  • EBITDA reached $528 million and a margin of 41.7%. EBITDA was YoY flat excluding Online and Cablevision
  • Bonds issued in Q4 for $600 million, extending debt maturity to over 3.4 years
  • Over 4 million MFS customers, MFS launched in Chad

FY 2012 Highlights

  • Local currency revenue growth of 8.0% to $4,814 million (8.7% excluding regulatory impact and Cablevision Paraguay)
  • EBITDA of $2,065 million and EBITDA margin of 42.9% (43.2% excluding Online)
  • Capex of $922 million (19.1% of revenue), excluding spectrum, licenses and Cablevision assets
  • Operating Free Cash Flow of $1,127 million (23.4% of revenue) excluding spectrum, licenses and Cablevision assets
  • The Board will propose a dividend of $2.64 per share to the AGM to be convened on May 28, 2013

2013 forward looking statements

We expect 2013 Group EBITDA margin to be above 40% (excluding Online) and to decline less than over the past twelve months. In 2013, the capex to revenue ratio will peak at around 20%, excluding spectrum acquisition.

In 2013 we expect the Online division to deliver in excess of $100 million of revenues and EBITDA losses to be in the range of $125-200 million. Losses will be on the high side of the range if we see an opportunity to accelerate growth and ramp up launches.

Hans-Holger Albrecht, President and CEO of Millicom, commented:

"2012 has been a year of investment for Millicom. We stepped up our investment in infrastructure and in commercial activities, notably in branding and subsidies to ensure we deliver the best quality services to our customers. We also invested in our people through the staffing of our different business categories. These investments are even more important given that the maturing of the voice business is accelerating in the fourth quarter with material regulatory pressure. We are constantly innovating by identifying and scaling up new opportunities that have yet to be addressed by the industry. It is our relentless pace of innovation, initiated long ago by our founder, which enabled us to continue growing at an industry leading 8% rate in 2012. We generated close to 35% of our revenues from Value Added Services, well on track to reach our mid-term ambitions to diversify revenue and to reduce reliance on mobile voice services.

In line with our 2012 guidance, EBITDA margin declined by 2.9 percentage points in 2012 versus 2011 to 43.2% (excluding Online). As previously communicated, we increased investment in IT and 3G services while maintaining a capex to revenue ratio below 20%. At 23% of revenues, our cash flow generation was healthy and above previously communicated targets.

In 2013 the transition from voice to data and from analogue to digital TV will accelerate as we ensure Millicom remains a growth company. Our priorities will be to 1) secure high market share and further monetize mobile data , 2) grow our cable business by exploiting untapped potential, 3) expand our MFS business from its initial success, and 4) explore and further develop Online opportunities in our partnership with Rocket Internet. Creation of a leading integrated operator in Colombia with EPM (the leading utility company in the Northwest region of Colombia) would enable us to accelerate our development in cable, whilst offering material opportunities to cross-sell and up-sell innovative and best quality services to customers.

In 2013 we expect EBITDA margin to decline less than in 2012, and remain above 40%, and capex to revenue to peak at around 20% (both excluding Online). We have recently increased our focus on costs and capex avoidance to improve the productivity of our investments and adjust our costs structure to the slowing growth momentum on voice. Building on Millicom’s pioneering approach to Value Added Services; we will focus on becoming a Digital leader. We will share more on our strategic priorities and mid-term ambitions at our Capital Markets Day on March 6.

The Board has decided to propose to the annual general assembly the payment of a dividend of $2.64 per share. Our dividend policy is maintained and we have the ambition to progressive growth in ordinary dividends.

At Millicom, we demand more to ensure we delight our customers at every turn. We demand more to create a culture within Millicom which is truly energising. We demand more to create greater shareholder value. We demand more to strengthen our position as digital lifestyle leaders. Demanding more helps us reach for the stars while keeping us grounded. That makes us Millicom."
