We recorded 6.2% consolidated revenue growth adjusted for nonoperational IFRIC revenues, which is in line with the top line growth guidance we provided with the markets. We maintained the strength of our profitability measured by EBITDA margin with a consolidated margin of 37.4%. We have continued to invest in our business in line with our growth prospects and diversification objectives. In the second quarter of the year, high growth part of our revenues constituted 72% of the total revenues. They were driven by mobile, broadband, and corporate data businesses. Our mobile business continued its expansion with 15% year on year revenue growth, while its consistent improvement in profitability proceeded this quarter with a 45% increase in EBITDA year on year, reaching 18% EBITDA margin for Q2. This is a 4 percentage point improvement compared to the same period of last year. Main driver of growth in mobile revenues continued to be mobile data. Our mobile data revenues increased 48% year on year on the back of our highest-in-the-market smart phone penetration, reaching 62% this quarter, and best-in-class data offers. In addition, our device selection offers our customers the best variety of high quality and affordable devices with which they can enjoy our fast and reliable network. Another factor that supported our high mobile revenue growth was the increasing ratio of postpaid subscribers in our mobile business. As of the second quarter, 50% of our subscribers are postpaid, setting the stage for us to become the first and only postpaid majority mobile operator in Turkey. Our broadband business grew 6% year on year in the second quarter despite a relatively low season for broadband. We had 68 thousand net additions in the second quarter and a 2.5% ARPU growth year on year, both of which supported the top line increase. Our fiber based customers reached 1.25 million while our footprint in fiber continued to expand, reaching homepass figures of 3.1 million in fiber to the home and building and 8.2 million in fiber to the cabinet. We had another successful quarter in our corporate data revenues, which grew 23% year on year in Q2. Our unique position in corporate data stems from our ability to deliver integrated telecom solutions in both fixed line and mobile segments. In addition to tailored solutions for different sized businesses in Turkey, our position in corporate segment is further strengthened by innovative initiatives such as Smart City and E-Health services. On TV, we initiated our first sports packages in Q2 post the acquisition of UEFA content. Subscribers will be able to watch UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches live through Tivibu Home in addition to our online platform Tivibu Go. Through our satellite platform, which went live in Q2, we cover the whole country with our TV service, which will feature the exciting games in the European cups coming up in August. While the integration of our businesses is continuing with full speed, it is encouraging to see that each part of our group businesses delivers strong results and demonstrates the potential behind incremental value generation through convergence. I would like to thank all of our stake holders for making this possible for our company. 2 Financial Highlights Türk Telekom Group QoQ YoY TL in Millions Q2 Q1 Q2 Change (%) Change (%) Revenue 3,300 3,434 3, Revenue (excluding IFRIC) 3,261 3,395 3, Net Operating Expenses excluding Depreciation and Amortization (2,047) (2,105) (2,206) Operating Profit before Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) 1,253 1,329 1,320 (0.7) 5.4 Depreciation and Amortization (470) (524) (532) Operating Profit (2.2) 0.6 Net Financial Income/ (Expense) 246 (737) (339) (54.0) NM Taxes (237) (63) (125) 98.6 (47.2) Net Profit Before Minority Interest NM (59.1) Net Profit After Minority Interest NM (58.1) Capital Expenditure Revenues Consolidated revenues increased by 6.9% YoY (up by TL 226 mn) to TL 3.5 bn in the second quarter, mainly due to 15.5% increase in mobile (up by TL 164 mn), 23.2% increase in corporate data (up by TL 66 mn) and 6% increase in broadband revenues (up by TL 54 mn).
