The Supervisory Board of Telekom Slovenije, d.d., Approves Telekom Slovenije Group’s 2018 Strategy and Plan, and 2019–2022 Projection
Pursuant to paragraph 1 of Article 17 of the Regulation (EU) no 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on market abuse (market abuse regulation) and repealing Directive 2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Directives 2003/124/EC, 2003/125/EC and 2004/72/EC, Article 136 of the Financial Instruments Market Act, Rules of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange and the valid legislation, Telekom Slovenije, d.d., Cigaletova 15, Ljubljana, hereby publishes the following notification:
The Supervisory Board of Telekom Slovenije, d.d., approved Telekom Slovenije Group’s 2018 strategy and plan, and 2019–2022 projection at its 7th regular session, held on Wednesday, 6 December 2017.
Markets where the Telekom Slovenije Group is present are highly competitive, with companies rapidly consolidating at the national and international levels, making competition even fiercer. The Telekom Slovenije Group is countering these trends by focusing on key strategic policies that are based on preserving the Group’s position on the mobile services market and increasing its market share on the fixed services market, securing new revenue sources, maintaining a state-of-the-art network, consolidation on certain markets, the simplification of processes and the IT infrastructure, reorganisation, financial stability and care for quality and society.
The Group expects revenues from basic telecommunication services on the Slovenian market to continue to drop, as the market is mature and saturated. Telekom Slovenije, d.d. continues to hold the highest market share in all segments, while alternative operators are attracting new users primarily through aggressive price policies that Telekom Slovenije, d.d. is unable to pursue due to regulatory restrictions and the principles of good management. We have responded to such activities by expanding and upgrading the fibre optic broadband network, adding new plans with convergent services, providing services outside the basic telecommunications activity, and ensuring the best customer experience and providing a complete range of ICT services. We will continue with digitalisation, and transform into a lean and agile company that responds dynamically to users’ demands by optimising our processes and the IT infrastructure, and through reorganisation.
The Telekom Slovenije Group expects to generate EUR 755.3 million in revenues in 2018, EBITDA of EUR 209.8 million and a net profit of EUR 40.9 million, and plans to invest EUR 158.0 million. Achieving those objectives depends on individual consolidation activities on the Slovenian and foreign markets.
The Supervisory Board of Telekom Slovenije, d.d., also gave its approval to reappoint Borut Radi, as the director of GVO, d.o.o., for a four-year term of office to begin on 1 March 2018.
This notification will also be available on the company’s website (www.telekom.si) for at least 5 years after it is published.
