Commenting on the results, Nir Sztern, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, said:
"2015 reflects the full strength of the competition effects in recent years. Alongside dealing with the competition arena and the decline in the financial indices, 2015 was a significant year in the establishment of the Group's strategy for the coming years. This was a year of breakthrough, of significant steps for our future as a communications group, offering a total value proposition to the customer. This was the year of Cellcom tv's successful launch, which revolutionized and offers an alternative to the consumer in the TV market, with over 70,000 households enjoying, as of today, the Cellcom tv experience. In 2015, the Group also began operating in the wholesale market with attractive offers to customers both in the triple play and the internet infrastructure and provider worlds. Despite the many challenges in the implementation of the reform, we are leading customer recruitment in the wholesale market with approximately 100,000 households, as of today.

Entering into the Golan Telecom acquisition agreement is another step in turning Cellcom into a leading communications group. We hope that, as was the case in many markets around the world, the transaction will be reviewed in Israel also based on relevant considerations. As we previously announced, we intend to maintain Golan Telecom as an independent company and we assure all Golan Telecom's customers that all their existing agreements will be honored.

We were able to implement our strategy in recent years as a value enhancing communications group to the customer thanks to the Group's excellent employees and managers, that engage in providing quality service to customers, and without them we would not have reached these achievements."

Shlomi Fruhling, Chief Financial Officer, commented:  
"During 2015, the Company moved to a growth path in the landline market by expanding operations with business customers, a successful Cellcom tv launch and a high customer recruitment rate for the wholesale market and the triple play offerings. Accordingly, we also recorded an increase in cost of revenues due to an increase in content costs and wholesale market communications costs. In the cellular market we have experienced a continued decline in service revenues which moderated throughout the year. We expect the level of competition in the market as characterized in 2015, to continue at the same pace in the coming quarters.

Despite the Company's entry into new areas of operation, we managed to reduce selling, marketing, administrative and general expenses of the Group, which decreased by 4.4% compared to the corresponding year, and the investments in fixed assets which amounted to NIS 396 million, a 19% decrease compared to the previous year. Subsequently, the Group is committed and continues to work to adjust its costs and investments structure to the market's condition.

 The Group continued in 2015 also to act to lower its net debt, which at the end of the year amounted at NIS 2.75 billion, compared to NIS 2.96 billion last year. Free Cash Flow totaled in 2015 to NIS 494 million, a 59% decrease compared to the corresponding year. Most of the decrease resulted from a decrease in proceeds from customers in respect of services and handsets sold in 36 installments.

The Company's board of directors decided not to distribute a dividend for the fourth quarter of 2015, given the intensified competition and its adverse effect on the Company's results of operations, and in order to strengthen the Company's balance sheet. The board of directors will re-evaluate its decision in the future in light of market developments and the Company needs."

FINANCIAL REVIEW

Revenues for 2015 decreased 8.5% totaling NIS 4,180 million ($1,071 million), compared to NIS 4,570 million ($1,171 million) last year. The decrease in revenues is attributed mainly to a 12.1% decrease in service revenues, from NIS 3,565 million ($914 million) in 2014 to NIS 3,132 million ($803 million) in 2015, as a result of the increased competition in the market. The decrease in revenues was partially offset by an increase in equipment revenues, which totaled NIS 1,048 million ($268 million) in 2015 compared to NIS 1,005 million ($257 million) in 2014 and revenues from OTT TV services launched at the end of 2014. Netvision's contribution to total revenues totaled NIS 809 million ($207 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) in 2015, compared to NIS 853 million ($219 million) in 2014. The decrease in Netvision's contribution is mainly due to a decrease in revenues from internet services and international calling services and was partially offset by a 63.9% increase in equipment revenues.

The decrease in service revenues in 2015 resulted mainly from a 14.7% decrease in revenues from cellular services due to the ongoing price erosion of these services and a decrease in subscriber base, 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 691 million ($177 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) in 2015, compared to NIS 781 million ($200 million) in 2014.

The increase in equipment revenues in 2015 resulted mainly from an approximately 63.9% increase in Netvision's end-user equipment revenues in 2015, compared to 2014 (excluding inter-company revenues). Netvision's contribution to equipment revenues totaled NIS 118 million ($30 million) in 2015 (excluding inter-company revenues), compared to NIS 72 million ($18 million) in 2014.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 decreased 8.2% totaling NIS 1,046 million ($268 million), compared to NIS 1,140 million ($292 million) in the fourth quarter of last year. The decrease in revenues is attributed mainly to a 9.3% decrease in service revenues, which totaled NIS 757 million ($194 million) in the fourth quarter 2015 compared to NIS 835 million ($214 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014, as well as from a 5.2% decrease in equipment revenues, which totaled NIS 289 million ($74 million) in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to NIS 305 million ($78 million) in the fourth quarter last year. Netvision's contribution to total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 totaled NIS 222 million ($57 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) compared to NIS 218 million ($56 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The decrease in fourth quarter 2015 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, as well as a decrease in revenues from international calling services. Netvision's contribution to service revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 totaled NIS 165 million ($42 million) (excluding inter-company revenues) compared to NIS 187 million ($48 million) in the fourth quarter of last year.

The decrease in fourth quarter 2015 equipment revenues resulted mainly from a decrease in the number of cellular handsets sold during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared with the fourth quarter of 2014, which was partially offset by an increase in Netvision's end-user equipment revenues. Netvision's contribution to equipment revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 totaled NIS 57 million ($15 million) compared to NIS 31 million ($8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Cost of revenues for 2015 totaled NIS 2,763 million ($708 million), compared to NIS 2,727 million
($699 million) in 2014, a 1.3% increase. This increase is attributed to a 0.9% increase in the cost of service revenues and a 2.6% increase in the cost of equipment revenues. The increase in the cost of service revenues in 2015 compared with 2014, mainly resulted from an increase in content costs related to OTT TV services launched at the end of 2014, a one-time reduction of a provision for cell-sites rent expenses in the amount of NIS 44 million ($11 million), as well as a one-time cancelation of a provision for communications cables expenses in the amount of NIS 22 million ($6 million), both in 2014. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in other cost of revenues expenses such as depreciation and maintenance. Netvision's contribution to cost of service revenues (excluding inter-company expenses) decreased to NIS 450 million ($115 million) in 2015 from NIS 471 million ($121 million) in 2014, mainly due to a decrease in cost of revenues from international calling services and a decrease in communications cables expenses. The increase in cost of equipment revenues mainly resulted from an increase in Netvision's equipment sales to business customers. Netvision's contribution to cost of equipment revenues increased to NIS 101 million ($26 million) in 2015 from NIS 55 million ($14 million) in 2014.

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 decreased to NIS 688 million ($176 million) from NIS 732 million ($188 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 6.0%. This decrease resulted mainly from a decrease in the cost of sales of handsets, as a result of a decrease in sales of such handsets and from a decrease in the cost of services as a result of efficiency measures, which were partially offset by an increase in content costs related to the OTT TV services launched at the end of 2014, and in Netvision's end-user equipment costs.

Gross profit for 2015 decreased 23.1% to NIS 1,417 million ($363 million) from NIS 1,843 million ($472 million) in 2014. Netvision's contribution to the gross profit for 2015 totaled NIS 258 million ($66 million) compared to NIS 327 million ($84 million) in 2014.

Selling, Marketing, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A Expenses") for 2015 decreased 4.4% to NIS 1,085 million ($278 million), compared to NIS 1,135 million ($291 million) in 2014. This decrease is primarily the result of the efficiency measures implemented by the Company, which led to a decrease in advertising expenses and other expenses as well as a decrease in depreciation and amortization expenses attributable to the acquisition of Netvision. Netvision's contribution to SG&A expenses totaled NIS 143 million ($37 million) in 2015, including amortization expenses related to intangible assets attributable to the acquisition of Netvision, compared to NIS 142 million ($36 million) in 2014.

SG&A Expenses for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased 1.5% to NIS 277 million ($71 million), compared to NIS 274 million ($70 million) in the fourth quarter of last year. This increase resulted mainly from an increase in customer acquisition commissions, which was partially offset by efficiency measures implemented by the Company in respect of other expenses.

Operating income for 2015 decreased 53.2% to NIS 310 million ($79 million) from NIS 662 million ($170 million) in 2014. Netvision's contribution to operating income3 in 2015 totaled NIS 116 million ($30 million) compared to NIS 180 million ($46 million) in 2014.

EBITDA for 2015, as a percent of revenues, totaled 20.9% down from 28.0% in 2014.

Financing expenses, net for 2015 decreased 10.6% to NIS 177 million ($45 million), compared to NIS 198 million ($51 million) in 2014. The decrease mainly resulted from a decrease in interest expenses, associated with the Company's debentures, due to a lower debt level in 2015 compared with 2014.

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 3.902 = US$ 1 as published by the Bank of Israel for December 31, 2015.

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 expenses related to employee voluntary retirement plans); 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 (including the effect of exchange rate fluctuations on cash and cash equivalents), 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.
