NETANYA, Israel, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Cellcom Israel concludes 2014 with free cash flow[1] of approximately NIS 1.2 billion and net income NIS 354 million[2], a 22.9% increase compared with previous year

2014 results were affected by the continued heightened competition

Nir Sztern, the Company's Chief Executive Officer commented: "We are pleased with the successful launch of "Cellcom tv" and expect to conclude the first quarter of 2015 with more than 20 thousand customers. This achievement is beyond our original recruitment expectations, and that's even before launching triple offerings."

Sztern added: "We expect 2015 will be marked by growth in the activities in the fixed-line market and Cellcom Israel is the most prepared company to create real competition in this market, through the marketing of integrated and triple packages at attractive prices."

  • Total Revenues decreased 5.7% to NIS 1,140 million ($293 million)

  • Net income decreased 46.1% to NIS 55 million ($14 million)

Commenting on the results, Nir Sztern, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, said:

"Even in this year of intense competition in the cellular market, Cellcom group continues to present good financial results, demonstrated by a free cash flow of approximately NIS 1.2 billion, net income of NIS 354 million and an increase in revenue from sales of end user equipment. We continue to take cost-efficiency measures in order to adjust our cost structure in response to heightened competition level in the market. The efficiency measures we implemented following the merger with Netvision have led to savings at an annual run rate of approximately NIS 850 million[3].

We are pleased with the successful launch of "Cellcom tv" and expect to conclude the first quarter of 2015 with more than 20 thousand customers. In comparison, during the entire year of 2014, Yes[4] recruited 31 thousand subscribers and Hot4 lost 22 thousand subscribers. In relation to the television market this is an outstanding success. This achievement is beyond our original recruitment expectations and that is even before launching triple offerings. The launch of "Cellcom tv" was also awarded 'The winning launch' prize of the Israeli Marketing Association, which was reasoned by being "a groundbreaking and innovative move."

During 2014 we prepared to create new growth engines for the group, and we expect 2015 will be marked by growth in the operation in the fixed-line market. The combination of "Cellcom tv" with the opening of the fixed-line market to competition through the wholesale market, presents an opportunity for growth in revenues, among others, through marketing triple packages at attractive prices.

The aggressive price competition in the cellular market continued to lead to erosion in revenues and to a high costumer turnover. Still, the Company managed to recruit a record number of subscribers, so that the Company's cellular subscriber base eroded this year by 4.0% only, alongside an increase in its subscriber base in the fixed-line fields.

Recently, we successfully completed the negotiations for a collective employment agreement with the employees' representatives and proved that it is possible to reach understandings, that put the employees' benefit alongside the Company's benefit. Cellcom group employees, the employees' representatives and management, are devoted, today more than ever, to the group's success. In this opportunity, I would like to thank the employees and managers of the Company for their work and great efforts this year."

Shlomi Fruhling, Chief Financial Officer, commented:

"2014 was characterized by a continued high level of competition, which led to an erosion of the Company's service revenues which is expected to continue into 2015. In order to adjust the cost structure of the Company to the high level of competition in the market, we continued to implement efficiency measures which included a voluntary retirement plan, under which 380 employees retired.

We concluded the year with a free cash flow (after investments) of approximately NIS 1.2 billion, similar to previous year. The free cash flow of the fourth quarter totaled to NIS 178 million, a decrease of 43.5% compared to the fourth quarter last year, reflecting the continued erosion of revenues and a decrease in working capital from handset sales. These trends, together with the effects of the entry into the field of television and the collective employment agreement will continue also in 2015.

In 2014, we continued to significantly strengthen the Company's balance sheet. We repaid debentures in a principal amount of over NIS 1 billion, and reduced our net debt by over NIS 850 million, to a total of NIS 2.95 billion.

In February 2015, we successfully executed an exchange in an amount of approximately NIS 1 billion of short-term debentures with long-term debentures. The purpose of the exchange was to better align the Company's forecasted results with its debt principal repayments dates. Pursuant to the exchange, we exchanged short-term debt that was due until 2017 with long-term debt that will be repaid between the years 2018-2025. We see the success of this move as a vote of confidence of the capital market in our Company and its long-term strategy.

In regards to the first quarter of 2015, as previously reported, in this quarter we will witness the impact of the entrance to the television field for the first time, with an increase in the costs of content and marketing along with a minor impact on revenues as expected in initial stages of penetration to a new field of operation and in line with the Company's business plan, and in addition, following the collective employment agreement the Company has entered, the Company is expected to record a one-time expense in the amount of approximately NIS 30 million.

The Company's Board of Directors decided not to distribute a dividend for the fourth quarter of 2014, given the continued intensified competition in the market and its adverse effect on the Company's revenues and in order to further strengthen the Company's balance sheet. The Board of Directors will re-evaluate its decision as market conditions develop, and taking into consideration the Company's needs."

Financial Review

Revenues for 2014 decreased 7.2% totaling NIS 4,570 million ($1,175 million), compared to NIS 4,927 million ($1,267 million) last year. The decrease in revenues is attributed mainly to a 10.5% decrease in service revenues as a result of the increased competition in the market, from NIS 3,985 million ($1,025 million) in 2013 to NIS 3,565 million ($917 million) in 2014. The decrease in revenues was partially offset by an increase in equipment revenues, which totaled NIS 1,005 million ($258 million) in 2014 compared to NIS 942 million ($242 million) in 2013. Netvision's contribution to total revenues totaled NIS 853 million ($219 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) in 2014, compared to NIS 933 million ($240 million) in 2013. The decrease in Netvision's contribution was mainly due to a decrease in revenues from internet services and international calling services.

The decrease in service revenues in 2014 resulted mainly from an 11.1% decrease in revenues from cellular services due to the ongoing price erosion of these services, resulting from the intensified competition in the cellular market. The decrease in service revenues also resulted from a decrease in revenues from internet services and international calling services due to intensified competition. Netvision's contribution to service revenues totaled NIS 781 million ($201 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) in 2014, compared to NIS 873 million ($224 million) in 2013.

The increase in equipment revenues in 2014 resulted from an approximately 6% increase in the number of cellular handsets sold in 2014, compared with 2013. Netvision's contribution to equipment revenues totaled NIS 72 million ($19 million) in 2014, compared to NIS 60 million ($15 million) in 2013.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 decreased 5.7% totaling NIS 1,140 million ($293 million), compared to NIS 1,209 million ($311 million) in the fourth quarter of last year. The decrease in revenues is attributed mainly to a 14.5% decrease in service revenues, which totaled NIS 835 million ($215 million) in the fourth quarter 2014 as compared to NIS 977 million ($251 million) in the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease in revenues was partially offset by a 31% increase in equipment revenues, which totaled NIS 305 million ($78 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to NIS 232 million ($60 million) in the fourth quarter last year. Netvision's contribution to total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled NIS 218 million ($56 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) compared to NIS 227 million ($58 million) in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The decrease in fourth quarter 2014 service revenues resulted mainly from a decrease in cellular services revenues, due to the ongoing erosion in the price of these services as a result of the intensified competition in the cellular market, decrease in revenues from hosting operators on the Company's communications networks, as well as decreases in revenues from internet services and international calling services, which also resulted from price erosion. Netvision's contribution to service revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled NIS 187 million ($48 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) compared to NIS 203 million ($52 million) in the fourth quarter of last year.

The increase in fourth quarter 2014 equipment revenues resulted from an approximately 22% increase in the number of cellular handsets sold during the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with the fourth quarter of 2013, as well as from an approximately 8% increase in the average cellular handset sale price in the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to the fourth quarter of last year. Netvision's contribution to equipment revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled NIS 31 million ($8 million) compared to NIS 24 million ($6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Cost of revenues for 2014 totaled NIS 2,727 million ($701 million), compared to NIS 2,990 million ($769 million) in 2013, an 8.8% decrease. This decrease is attributed to a 12.7% decrease in the cost of service revenues which was partially offset by a 3.5% increase in the cost of equipment revenues. The decrease in the cost of service revenues in 2014 compared with 2013, mainly resulted from a decrease in payroll expenses due to efficiency measures, a decrease in interconnect fees as a result of a decrease in connectivity tariffs, a decrease in cost of revenues from internet and international calling services as a result of a decrease in sales of such services, a one-time reduction of a provision for cell-sites rent expenses in the amount of NIS 44 million ($11 million) in the third quarter of 2014, as well as a one-time cancelation of a provision for communications cables expenses in the amount of NIS 22 million ($6 million) in the second quarter of 2014. Netvision's contribution to cost of revenues (excluding inter-company expenses) decreased to NIS 471 million ($121 million) in 2014 from NIS 602 million ($155 million) in 2013, mainly due to a decrease in cost of revenues from internet and international calling services as a result of a decrease in sales of such services and a decrease in payroll expenses due to efficiency measures. The increase in cost of equipment revenues mainly resulted from an increase in the cost of cellular handsets, primarily as a result of a 6% increase in the number of cellular handsets sold during 2014 as compared with 2013, which was partially offset by a decrease in the average cost of a cellular handset. Netvision's contribution to cost of equipment revenues increased to NIS 55 million ($14 million) in 2014 from NIS 47 million ($12 million) in 2013 due to an increase in the amount of equipment sales transactions with business customers.

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased to NIS 732 million ($188 million) from NIS 712 million ($183 million) in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 2.8%. This increase resulted mainly from an increase in the cost of sales of handsets, as a result of an increase in sales of such handsets, which was partially offset by a decrease in cost of revenues as a result of efficiency measures.

Gross profit for 2014 decreased 4.9% to NIS 1,843 million ($474 million) from NIS 1,937 million ($498 million) in 2013.

Selling, Marketing, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A Expenses") for 2014 decreased 13.9% to NIS 1,135 million ($292 million), compared to NIS 1,287 million ($331 million) in 2013. This decrease is primarily the result of the efficiency measures implemented by the Company, which led to a decrease in payroll expenses, rent and other expenses. The decrease in SG&A expenses also resulted from a decrease in doubtful accounts expenses resulting from a decrease in the average customer debt and increased collection efforts and from a decrease in depreciation and amortization expenses related to intangible assets attributable to the acquisition of Netvision. Netvision's contribution to SG&A expenses totaled NIS 142 million ($37 million) in 2014, including amortization expenses related to intangible assets attributable to the acquisition of Netvision, compared to NIS 188 million ($48 million) in 2013.

SG&A Expenses for the fourth quarter of 2014 decreased 16.2% to NIS 274 million ($70 million), compared to NIS 327 million ($84 million) in the fourth quarter of last year. This decrease resulted from the same factors as the decrease in the annual SG&A expenses mentioned above.

Financing expenses, net for 2014 decreased 19.5% to NIS 198 million ($51 million), compared to NIS 246 million ($63 million) in 2013. The decrease mainly resulted from a decrease in interest and linkage expenses, associated with the Company's debentures, due to a lower debt level and a lower inflation rate in 2014 compared with 2013.

Financing expenses, net for the fourth quarter 2014 increased 86.7% to NIS 56 million ($14 million), compared to NIS 30 million ($8 million) in the fourth quarter of last year.

Financing and Investment Review

Cash Flow

Free cash flow for 2014 totaled NIS 1,204 million ($310 million), similar to NIS 1,210 million ($311 million) in 2013. Cash flows from operating activities for 2014 totaled NIS 1,556 million ($400 million) similar to NIS 1,557 million ($400 million) in 2013. In 2014, the cash flow was affected by a decrease in proceeds from customers following the decrease in service revenues in 2014 compared with 2013. The decrease in proceeds from customers was partially offset by a decrease in payments to vendors, a decrease in operating expenses mainly as a result of efficiency measures implemented by the Company and a positive working capital cash flow in respect of handsets sales in previous years. Cash flows used in investing activities increased 1.7% from NIS 344 million ($86 million) in 2013 to NIS 350 million ($90 million) in 2014, primarily due to the deployment of the LTE 4 generation network, which was partially offset by a decrease in various other investments.

 Free cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2014 decreased by 43.5% totaling NIS 174 million ($45 million), from NIS 308 million ($79 million) in the fourth quarter of last year. The decrease in free cash flow is attributed mainly to the decrease in service revenues, the decrease in working capital in respect of handsets sales in previous years, as well as from the investment in the deployment of the LTE 4 generation network.

Total Equity

Total Equity as of December 31, 2014 amounted to NIS 1,092 million ($281 million), primarily consisting of accumulated undistributed retained earnings of the Company.

Investments in Fixed Assets and Intangible Assets

Forward-Looking Statements

The following information contains, or may be deemed to contain forward-looking statements (as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and the Israeli Securities Law, 1968). In some cases, you can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as "may," "might," "will," "should," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "predict," "potential" or "continue," the negative of these terms and other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions about the Company, may include projections of the Company's future financial results, its anticipated growth strategies and anticipated trends in its business. These statements are only predictions based on the Company's current expectations and projections about future events. There are important factors that could cause the Company's actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to: changes to the terms of the Company's license, new legislation or decisions by the regulator affecting the Company's operations, new competition and changes in the competitive environment, the outcome of legal proceedings to which the Company is a party, particularly class action lawsuits, the Company's ability to maintain or obtain permits to construct and operate cell sites, and other risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including under the caption "Risk Factors" in its Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2014. 

Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements contained herein are reasonable, it cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Moreover, neither the Company nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of any of these forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no duty to update any of these forward-looking statements after the date hereof to conform its prior statements to actual results or revised expectations, except as otherwise required by law.

The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Unless noted specifically otherwise, the dollar denominated figures were converted to US$ using a convenience translation based on the New Israeli Shekel (NIS)/US$ exchange rate of NIS 3.889 = US$ 1 as published by the Bank of Israel for December 31, 2014.

Use of non-IFRS financial measures

EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure and is defined as income before financing income (expenses), net; other income (expenses), net; (excluding one-time expense related to employee retirement plan) income tax; depreciation and amortization and share based payments. This is an accepted measure in the communications industry. The Company presents this measure as an additional performance measure as the Company believes that it enables us to compare operating performance between periods and companies, net of any potential differences which may result from differences in capital structure, taxes, age of fixed assets and related depreciation expenses. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for operating income, any other performance measures, or cash flow data, which were prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles as measures of profitability or liquidity. EBITDA does not take into account debt service requirements, or other commitments, including capital expenditures, and therefore, does not necessarily indicate the amounts that may be available for the Company's use. In addition, EBITDA as presented by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, due to differences in the way these measures are calculated. See the reconciliation of net income to EBITDA under "Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures" in the press release.

Free cash flow is a non-IFRS measure and is defined as the net cash provided by operating activities minus the net cash used in investing activities excluding short-term investment in tradable debentures and deposits and proceeds from sales of such debentures (including interest received in relation to such debentures) and deposits. See "Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures" below.
