VimpelCom Ltd. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total operating revenue of USD 3,515 million against USD 5,024 million a year ago. Operating profit was USD 879 million against USD 924 million a year ago. Profit before tax was USD 444 million against USD 249 million a year ago. EBITDA was USD 4,396 million against USD 2,088 million a year ago. EBIT was USD 879 million compared to USD 924 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company shareholders was USD 184 million against USD 38 million a year ago. EPS were USD 0.11 per basic share compared to USD 0.05 per basic share a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was USD 764 million compared to net cash from operating activities of USD 1,168 million a year ago. Capex expenditures were USD 460 million compared to USD 735 million a year ago. Capex expenditures excluding licenses were USD 460 million compared to USD 735 million a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipment amounted to USD 500 million compared to USD 1,023 million a year ago. Purchase of other intangible assets amounted to USD 114 million compared to USD 136 million a year ago. Net debt decreased 12% quarter on quarter o to USD 17.6 billion, mainly as a result of RUB and EUR depreciation against USD, proceeds from the Algeria sale and proceeds from the Italian tower sale. Revenue and EBITDA impacted by currency headwinds. EBIT impacted by the lower EBITDA, a net pre-tax gain of USD 466 million from the tower sale in Italy and USD 98 million of impairments related to Ukraine and Armenia. EBIT, excluding the aforementioned net positive impact of USD 368 million, is USD 511 million. Profit before tax increased 81% year-on-year to USD 444 million primarily due to the refinancing in Italy and the positive effect of the weakening of ruble and euro against the US dollar, which resulted in decreased financial expenses and the positive effect from hedging, which offset foreign exchange losses as a result of local currencies depreciation. Net cash from operating activities was significantly affected by the payment of the Bank of Algeria fine of approximately USD 1.1 billion consequent to the closing of the transaction in Algeria, which contributed a total working capital outflow of USD 1.4 billion. For the first quarter of 2015, impairment loss was USD 98 million.
