VimpelCom Ltd. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2014; Reports Impairment Loss for the Fourth Quarter Ended December 31, 2014

VimpelCom Ltd. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported total operating revenue of $4,391 million compared to $5,552 million a year ago. Operating loss was $421 million compared to $3,218 million a year ago. Loss before tax was $1,016 million compared to $3,994 million a year ago. The year on year improvement was primarily the result of the lower impairments in fourth quarter of 2014, lower financial expenses as result of the refinancing of Italy and positive fair value of derivatives, partly offset by higher foreign exchange losses, mainly due to depreciation of RUB against the USD. Net loss attributable to the company shareholders was $935 million compared to $3,861 million a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was $1,398 million compared to $2,010 million a year ago. Net cash from operating activities declined 30% mainly due to the decline in underlying EBITDA, one-off interest payments in Italy partly offset by lower income tax paid. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was $869 million compared to $1,342 million a year ago. Purchase of licenses was $24 million. Purchase of other intangible assets was $141 million. EBITDA was $1,600 million compared to $1,013 million a year ago. LBIT was $421 million compared to $3,218 million a year ago. Capital expenditure decreased year on year to $1.2 billion due to depreciation of the RUB, EUR and UAH against the USD, more balanced spending throughout 2014, and the completion of 2G coverage and network modernization projects in Bangladesh in third quarter of 2014. Operating cash flow in the fourth quarter was $399 million against negative $669 million a year earlier. For the year, the company reported total operating revenue of $19,627 million compared to $22,546 million a year ago. Operating loss was $2,586 million compared to $346 million a year ago. Loss before tax was $181 million compared to $2,024 million a year ago. Net loss attributable to the company shareholders was $691 million compared to $2,625 million a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was $5,279 million compared to $6,351 million a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was $3,560 million compared to $3,955 million a year ago. Purchase of licenses was $423 million. Purchase of other intangible assets was $506 million. EBITDA was $7,970 million compared to $8,260 million a year ago. The reduction in EBITDA was mainly due to the decline in revenue, increase in frequency fees, higher network costs as well as the impact on costs of adverse currency movements. EBIT was $2,586 million compared to $346 million a year ago. Net debt was $19,992 million. LTM EBITDA adjusted was $8,020 million compared to $9,526 million a year ago. EBIT was impacted by impairment charges of $1.0 billion compared to impairment charges of $2.9 billion in last year, despite adverse local currencies against the USD in full year 2014. For the year, operating cash flow fell by 5% to $4 billion. Capex, excluding licenses, in 2014 decreased slightly to $3.9 billion. For the fourth quarter, the company reported impairment loss of $1,051 million compared to $2,906 million a year ago.
