Operational Highlights



· Sound commercial momentum in focused areas sustained despite continued
intense competition:

o Healthy total mobile customers'growth: +2.9% year-on-year to 5 million,
with significant 56.5 thousand net additions in Q3 2012 (in comparison to 29.6
thousand in Q2). Continued sound contract trading and low churn remained the
drivers of the growth. Prepaid base reported strong growth (+29.7 thousand in
Q3 2012), driven by better trading and significant reduction in churn.

o xDSL accesses grew by 5.6% year-on-year reaching 902 thousand, with VDSL
(already over 60% of total accessible base in residential segment) helping to
manage fixed BB ARPU dilution and maintain churn.

o Decline in fixed accesses continued to decelerate: accesses down 5.2%
year-on year, with 63.3 thousand net losses in 9M 2012.

· Consolidated business revenues went down by 3.8% year-on-year reaching
CZK 12,586 million in Q3 2012 (-3.1% to CZK 37,751 million in 9M), in line
with H1 performance.

· Guided OIBDA reached CZK 5,275 million in Q3, up from 5,146 million in
Q2 (CZK 15,469 million in 9M 2012) resulting in healthy 41.9% margin^1 in Q3
(up from 40.5% in Q2) and 41.0% in 9M 2012, on the back of continuous
efficiency agenda in CZ and growing OIBDA in SK. Reported OIBDA reached CZK
5,008 million and CZK 14,690 million in Q3 and 9M 2012.

· Telefónica Slovakia maintained its strong commercial momentum reporting
19.8% year-on-year subscribers' growth (+42.0 thousand in Q3). At the same
time, it further improved its financial performance.

14^th November 2012 (ex-date on 12^th November), with payment to commence
starting on 14^th December 2012.







"I am glad that our successful commercial proposition meeting the customers'
needs is reflected in sustainedsolid subscribers' growth in the key areas,
despite continuous competitive pressures. As a result of our customer care
initiatives contract base churn remained low, while performance in prepaid
segment significantly improved in the past quarter delivering positive net
additions. Our enhanced VDSL proposition attracted more customers, which helps
us to better manage fixed broadband ARPU and sustain low churn. In addition,
we see positive impact of our recently introduced smart mobile tariffs, which
include internet in handset service in every package, and our proposition
guaranteeing best price for most selling smartphones, in growing smartphone
penetration as well as increasing number of customers with mobile internet
service. In Slovakia, we delivered another strong set of commercial and
financial results", says David Melcon, the Chief Financial Officer and the
First Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of Telefónica Czech Republic
when commenting on the operator's financial results. "Our revenue performance
in this quarter was broadly in line with that reported in the first half.
Mobile revenues reported modest deterioration on the back of worse residential
spend patterns, while revenues decline in fixed business decelerated fuelled
by increasing contribution of ICT services. OIBDA margin reached solid 41.9%,
higher than in previous two quarters, driven by permanent focus on operational
transformation and growing profitability in Slovakia", he adds.



Consolidated Financial Statements

Consolidated business revenues went down by 3.1% year-on-year to CZK 37,751
million in 9M 2012, while in Q3 the decline rate was at -3.8% reporting
total business revenues of CZK 12,586 million in the quarter, largely due to
year-on-year lower mobile revenues. Fixed business revenues in the Czech
Republic declined by 6.0% year-on-year reaching CZK 15,826 million in 9M 2012,
while in Q3 they amounted to CZK 5,242 million resulting in decelerating
decline rate to -5.3% year-on-year due to higher ICT contribution.



Mobile revenues in the Czech Republic reported a 5.2% year-on-year decline to
CZK 18,531 million in 9M 2012, while in Q3 they went down by 6.6% year-on-year
reaching CZK 6,186 million, largely on the back of lower equipment sales. At
the same time, the Company reported continuous solid mobile data revenues
growth and recorded continuous deceleration in spend dilution of its Corporate
and SMB customers, despite prevailing competitive pressure, helped by
successful O[2] Exclusive proposition, while mobile residential spend slightly
worsened. Excluding the impact of MTR cuts, the decline rate would have been
-5.9% year-on-year in the quarter.



At the same time, revenues in Slovakia continued with solid growth and
recorded a 25.0% year-on-year increase reaching EUR 141.5 million in 9M 2012
with a 21.6% year-on-year growth to EUR 48.8 million in Q3 (+33.7% and +29.6%
year-on-year in 9M and Q3 2012, excluding MTR impact).



In Q3 2012, the Company has continued in its effort to deliver efficiencies in
all areas of its operations. Total consolidated operating costs remained
broadly flat (+0.4% year-on-year) in 9M (CZK 23,690 million) and Q3 2012 (CZK
7,765 million) respectively, despite customer base growth and expansion of
business activities. Personnel expenses (excluding restructuring costs)
declined by 7.4% year-on-year in 9M 2012, while in Q3 they went down by 3.3%
as vast majority of the headcount reduction in 2012 happened already in H1
(514 employees optimization in H1 vs. 62 in Q3), while in the previous year,
the Company executed its headcount optimization program largely in H2 (439
employees reduction vs. 192 in H1). As a result, the Group's headcount was
reduced by 12.1% year-on-year to 6,314 at the end of September 2012. Marketing
expenses were broadly flat year-on-year in 9M 2012, while in Q3, they
increased over 20% year-on-year, due to different phasing of marketing
campaigns compared to the same period in 2011. 



Guided Operating income before depreciation and amortization (OIBDA)^3 reached
CZK 5,275 million in Q3 2012, the highest figure in 2012 (CZK 5,049 million in
Q1 and CZK 5,146 million in Q2), while in 9M it amounted to CZK 15,470
million. This represents an 11.7% and 7.9% year-on-year declines in Q3 and 9M
2012 respectively. At the same time guided OIBDA margin reached 41.9% in Q3,
up from 40.5% in Q1 and Q2, while in 9M 2012, it was at 41.0%. This represents
a 2.1 percentage points year-on-year decline in 9M 2012 and 3.6 percentage
points decline in Q3, largely due to different phasing of some OpEx items and
higher marketing activities as already described. Reported OIBDA reached CZK
5,008 million in Q3 and CZK 14,690 million in 9M 2012.



Depreciation and amortization charges went down by 2.5% year-on-year in 9M
2012 (-3.8% in Q3). Consolidated net income amounted to CZK 5,019 million and
CZK 1,764 million in 9M and Q3 2012, down by 13.7% year-on-year in 9M 2012.
This has been driven largely by the decline in OIBDA, which was not fully
offset by lower D&A, net financial and income tax expenses. 

Consolidated CapEx (excluding business acquisitions) reached CZK 3,965 million
in 9M 2012, up by 7.5% year-on-year (+39.5% to CZK 1,792 million in Q3). The
Company continued to direct investments into further capacity expansion and
improvement of the quality of its mobile broadband network, including
backhaul. In addition, CapEx was spent on further expansion of 3G network
coverage, including coverage of currently unserved areas on the basis of the
network sharing contract with T-Mobile. At the end of September 2012, the
Company's3G network covered close to 78% of the population. Additionally,
the Company focused its investments into upgrading its fixed broadband
networks. This allowed it to increase the maximum speed for its VDSL
proposition up to 40 Mbps since the beginning of September. This represents
another step in strengthening of its position in the highly competitive fixed
broadband market in the Czech Republic and customer experience enhancement. In
Slovakia, CapEx was largely spent on additional 3G network expansion. At the
end of September, Telefónica Slovakia covered already 52.1% of the population
with its 3G coverage.

Cash from operating activities declined by 19.9% year-on-year in 9M 2012 (but
only -9.7% in Q3), due to a decrease in OIBDA and different phasing in working
capital cash movements in H1. Cash used in investing activities increased by
6.7%. This is a result of higher proceeds on disposal of fixed assets (driven
by proceeds on disposal of 80% of shares of its subsidiary Informační linky,
a.s. in Q1 2012), which not fully compensated a modest increase in payments
for CapEx. Thus, group free cash flows decreased by 31.7% year-on-year
reaching CZK 6,998 million in 9M 2012. In addition, cash used in investing
activities in Q3 showed an impact of the obligatory temporary warranty (CZK
250 million) paid by the Company in connection with its participation in
Spectrum Auction scheduled for this year. 

The consolidated financial debt amounted to CZK 2,966 million at 30 September
2012, broadly in line with the end of 2011. At the same time, cash and cash
equivalents reached CZK 12,459 million as the Company continued to accumulate
cash for a dividend payment (CZK 27 per share) which commenced on 10 October
and for payment of the amount corresponding to the share capital reduction
(CZK 13 per share), which will commence on 14 December.





CZ Mobile Business Overview^4

In Q3 2012, the mobile business continued to report solid commercial momentum
in all areas. In respect of spend patterns, spend dilution in SMB and
Corporate segments continued to decelerate despite tough competition, helped
by value management initiatives and the O[2] Exclusive proposition, while
residential spend patterns marginally worsened impacted largely by competitive
price pressures and customers savings. In the commercial area, the Company
maintained solid subscribers' growth in the contract segment and significantly
improved performance in prepaid area. In the mobile internet area, the Company
continued in its support of smartphone sales via best price guarantee
proposition for bestselling smartphones. As a result, smartphone sales
represented already close to 72% of total handset sales in Q3 2012 and
smartphone penetration grew further reaching 25% at the end of September 2012,
up by 1.8 percentage points quarter-on-quarter.



The total mobile customer base reached 5,024 thousand at the end of September
2012, a 2.9% year-on-year increase. This performance has been driven by
sustained contract customers growth, whose number went up by 4.8% year-on-year
reaching 3,140 thousand with 26.9 thousand net additions during the quarter.
This growth continued to be supported by customers migrating from the prepaid
to the contract segment, strong customers' increase in Corporate and SMB
segments, increasing smartphone penetration and a low churn. At the end of
September 2012, contract customers accounted for 62.5% of the base, up 1.2
percentage point year-on-year. The number of prepaid customers reached 1,884
thousand at the end of September 2012, down only by 0.2% year-on-year, with a
strong positive net additions of 29.7 thousand in Q3, compared to net losses
of 7.2 and 31.1 thousand in Q2 and Q1 respectively, largely due to lower churn
and lower number of migrations to contract services as a result of successful
propositions and activities focused on improvement of customers' care leading
to higher satisfaction. 



The blended monthly average churn rate reached 1.64% in Q3 2012, down by 0.3
percentage point year-on-year as well as compared to Q2. This is a result of
continuous low contract churn, which reached 0.99% in Q3 2012 and significant
improvement in prepaid churn, which declined by 0.6 percentage points
year-on-year (-0.5 percentage points quarter-on-quarter) reaching 2.72% in Q3
2012 due to above mentioned Company's effort at enhancement of commercial
proposition and customer care. 



In terms of usage, total mobile traffic^5 carried by customers in the Czech
Republic reached 7,081 million minutes in 9M 2012, up by 6.6% year-on-year,
supported by successful propositions for both contract and prepaid customers.




In 9M 2012, mobile blended ARPU^6 was CZK 395.8, down by 7.0% year-on-year,
while in Q3 it went down 6.9% year-on-year, reaching CZK 394.5. ARPU continued
to be impacted by MTR cuts and competition. Excluding the impact of MTR cuts,
total ARPU would have declined by 5.4% year-on-year in 9M 2012 and by 6.3%
year-on-year in Q3. Continuous voice ARPU dilution driven by persisting
competitive pressures and lower residential spend evolution were the key
drivers for the majority of the decline. Contract ARPU reached CZK 528.5 in 9M
2012, down by 9.3% year-on-year and CZK 524.7 in Q3, down 8.7% year-on-year
(-7.8% year-on-year and -8.0% year-on-year in 9M and Q3 2012 excluding the
impact from MTR cuts). Prepaid ARPU decreased by 5.6% year-on-year and 6.1%
year-on-year in 9M and Q3 2012 reaching CZK 176.3 and CZK 177.0 respectively.
Data ARPU declined by 3.9% year-on-year reaching CZK 112.0 in 9M 2012 (-6.3%
year-on-year to CZK 112.4 in Q3) largely due to mobile internet and SMS/MMS
bundling in monthly fees. However pure data ARPU^7 continued to maintain a
solid growth reporting a 6.1% year-on-year improvement in Q3.



Total mobile business revenues in the Czech Republic declined by 5.2%
year-on-year to CZK 18,531 million in 9M 2012, with a 6.6% decline to CZK
6,186 million in Q3. At the same time, mobile service revenues went down by
4.8% year-on-year in 9M and Q3 2012 respectively, broadly in line with Q2
performance. Already mentioned competitive pressures leading to lower spend in
SMB and corporate segments, worse spend patterns in residential segment and
MTR cuts continued to be the key drivers for the decline. Excluding the
impact of mobile termination rate cuts, mobile service revenues would decline
by 4.1% year-on-year in Q3 2012. Despite continued growth in the contract
customer base, revenues from monthly fees increased slightly by 0.3%, reaching
CZK 6,080 million in 9M 2012. Traffic revenues decreased by 11.0% year-on-year
in 9M 2012 to CZK 4,711 million, while in Q3 the year-on-year decline it
slightly decelerated to -9.5%. Interconnection revenues went down by 13.4%
year-on-year in 9M 2012, largely impacted by MTR cuts not fully compensated by
higher incoming traffic. However, in Q3 they went down only by 3.9%
year-on-year as the MTR cut happened only in mid-September. Other revenues
(including SMS & MMS, data and other business revenues) reached in total CZK
5,285 million and CZK 1,774 million in 9M and Q3 2012, representing 1.4% and
3.7% year-on-year decrease with more SMS/MMS bundling putting pressure on
them. At the same time, revenues from mobile internet remain the key growth
driver of non-SMS data revenues (+8.8% year-on-year in Q3).





CZ Fixed Business Overview^8

In Q3 2012, the Company successfully continued addressing the demand for fixed
broadband services via its enhanced VDSL proposition, which led to solid
commercial performance of the broadband customer base and maintained same
fixed access losses seen in Q2. At the same time, revenues showed improved
year-on-year dynamics compared to Q1 and Q2 helped by higher ICT revenue
contribution. Continuous migration of existing ADSL customers to the VDSL
service helped the Company to decelerate fixed broadband ARPU dilution and
improve churn, which is relevant in a highly competitive and slowing fixed
broadband market environment. 



The total number of fixed accesses declined by 5.2% year-on-year reaching
1,519 thousand at the end of September 2012, with 63.3 thousand net losses
during 9M 2012. This represents a 6.0% reduction compared to 9M 2011 and is
largely a result of solid 23.3% year-on-year growth of naked accesses and
continuous growth of Voice-over-IP lines. 



The number of xDSL accesses reached 902 thousand at the end of September 2012,
up by 5.6% year-on-year. In respect of VDSL, 238 thousand customers have
already subscribed for the upgraded service, which represents 30% of the total
xDSL residential base and 62% of the total addressable existing base (~ 50% of
households). In Q3 2012, the number of VDSL customers grew by 31 thousand. The
total number of O2 TV customers reached 140 thousand at the end of Q3 2012,
+7.0% year-on-year, a relevant achievement in stagnant Pay TV market in the
Czech Republic.



Voice traffic generated in the fixed network went down by 13.2% year-on-year
in 9M 2012 to 990 million minutes, still impacted by fixed telephony line
losses and the fixed to mobile substitution effect.



In 9M 2012, total fixed business revenues went down by 6.0% year-on-year
reachingCZK 15,826 million, while the decline rate slowed down to -5.3%
year-on-year in Q3 to CZK 5,242 million. Revenues from traditional accesses
fell by 15.4% year-on-year reaching CZK 2,780 million in 9M 2012 due to
continuing fixed telephony line losses, while revenues from traditional voice
revenues went down by 6.7% year-on-year to CZK 4,763 million (-6.1%
year-on-year in Q3), largely due to lower revenues from communication traffic
(in line with lower voice traffic). Internet & broadband revenues were flat
year-on-year reaching CZK 4,531 million in 9M 2012, as a result of xDSL
customer growth, migration of higher value customers to VDSL and competitive
ARPU pressures. IT services and business solutions revenues went up by 4.8%
year-on-year reaching CZK 1,509 million in 9M 2012, while in Q3 the growth
rate accelerated to 9.3% year-on-year. The Company successfully continued
with penetration of standard and recurring ICT services for business customers
(Managed Services/Cloud/Security/Virtual Desktop) to mitigate dependence on
one-off projects, which shall help it to generate sustainable revenues.



Slovakia

Telefónica Slovakia delivered another strong set of commercial and financial
results in Q3, which resulted in the further strengthening of its position in
the Slovak mobile market. At the same time, its results continue to increase
their contribution to the Group's financial performance. At the end of
September 2012, the total number of customers reached 1,292 thousand, posting
19.8% year-on-year growth. In Q3 2012, their number increased by 42.0 thousand
driven largely by strong performance in the contract base supported by the
successful launch of the new tariff O[2] Paušál targeting higher value
customers. The number of contract customers grew by 37.4% year-on-year
reaching 611 thousand at the end of September 2012 (+36.7 thousand in Q3, 6.7%
more compared to Q3 2011), while the number of prepaid customers increased by
7.4% year-on-year ending up at 681 thousand. Consequently, the customer mix in
Slovakia further improved and contract customers represented an already
significant 47.3% of the total customer base, up by 6.1 percentage points
year-on-year.



In terms of financial performance, the total revenues of Telefónica Slovakia
in local currency increased by 25.0% year-on-year reaching EUR 141.5 million
in 9M 2012 (+21.6% year-on-year in Q3). Excluding the impact of MTR cuts, the
growth rates would be 33.7% and 29.6% in 9M and Q3 2012 respectively, fuelled
by customer growth, improving customer mix and the company's focus on
acquiring higher value customers. Thus revenues in Slovakia represented nearly
10% of total Group revenues in 9M 2012. At the same time, in 9M 2012, OIBDA
for Telefónica Slovakia went up by 65.4% year-on-year with a 3.9%
quarter-on-quarter growth in Q3, thus helping to support the Group's
profitability. In Q3 2012, contractARPU reached EUR 16.1, while prepaid ARPU
was at EUR 8.0.
