Consolidated Operating Revenues
Clients continued to increase in 9M12, reaching 21.2 million as of the end of September 2012, representing an increase of 1.3 million (+7%) since September 30, 2011.
The actions developed to increase the usage of value added services ("VAS"), such as innovative offers to clients and equipments sales, allowed Personal to increase consolidated revenues to third parties to P$11,608 million (+23% vs. 9M11).
Telecom Personal in Argentina
As of September 30, 2012, Personal reached 18.9 million subscribers in Argentina (+6% or 1.1 million vs. 9M11), improving its market position. It is worth noting that the overall subscriber base mix continued to improve with 33% in the postpaid segment (+12% vs. 9M11).

VAS revenues strongly increased by 35% vs. 9M11.
During the quarter, VAS usage continued to be promoted, where Personal's clients tended to acquire more sophisticated equipments with more services, thus improving its usage experience.
During 9M12, the overall traffic of voice minutes increased by 8% vs. 9M11. SMS traffic (incoming and outgoing charged messages) continued to increase, although at a slower pace of growth, due to other Internet alternatives provided by Personal. The traffic climbed to a monthly average of 5,662 million in 9M12 from 5,484 million messages in 9M11 (+3% vs. 9M11). Due to this increase in traffic and VAS usage, Average Monthly Revenue per User ("ARPU") increased to P$55.8 during 9M12 (+12% vs. 9M11).
During 3Q12, Personal continued with its strategy in terms of service convenience, through special promotions in prepaid credit recharges and new packages customized to Club Personal's members. In addition, a new platform was implemented with the objective of reaching each segment with customized benefits and improving the customer experience.
Personal extended its digital platform for customer service by using the application "Mi Cuenta Personal," available for Android's handsets, so that each client can manage its services from its handset. Moreover, Personal consolidated its position in the mobile Internet market with its proposal of daily unlimited Internet that massifies mobile Internet access.
Furthermore, Personal continued expanding its commercial network in the country by opening new commercial offices focusing in a clients´ experience model. In line with this concept, Personal launched a Black Tour, the itinerant experience centre of Personal, which visits more than 50 cities of the country with the last technology and smartphones so that clients can have their own experience.

Telecom Personal in Paraguay ("Nucleo")
Nucleo's subscriber base reached 2.3 million clients (+9% vs. 9M11). Prepaid and postpaid customers represented 82% and 18%, respectively.

Revenues generated by Measured Services totaled P$968 million, an increase of P$47 million or +5% vs. 9M11 mainly due to the incorporation of flat rate packs with local calls.

Consolidated Operating Costs
The Cost of Services Provided, General & Administrative Expenses and Selling Expenses, excluding Gains on disposal of PP&E, totaled P$13,242 million in 9M12, an increase of P$2,709 million, or +26% vs. 9M11. The increase is a consequence of higher commercial costs due to a higher volume of revenues, the inflationary effects in the general cost structure, and greater expenses related to the intense competition.
The cost breakdown is as follows:
- Employee benefit expenses and severance payments totaled P$2,368 million (+27% vs. 9M11), mainly affected by increases in salaries due to the new labor agreement reached at the beginning of 3Q12, the increase in the number of employees and the increase in salaries for non unionized employees. Total headcount at the end of the period totaled 16,778 employees (+3% vs. 9M11) (including temporary and eventual employees), 443 employees were incorporated in the mobile business and 90 employees in the fixed services, compared to 9M11.
- Taxes and fees with the regulatory authority reached P$1,454 million (+26% vs. 9M11), impacted mainly by a higher volume of revenues, an increase in turnover taxes, by higher bank debit and credit taxes and higher taxes with the regulatory authority.
- Interconnection costs and other telecommunication charges (includes TLRD, Roaming, Interconnection, international settlement charges and lease of circuits) amounted to P$1,214 million, +P$124 million vs. 9M11. This increase resulted from higher roaming charges partially compensated by savings from stimulating on-net traffic among mobile clients and consequently decrease third parties network usage costs.
- Commissions (Commissions paid to Agents, prepaid card commissions and others) totaled P$1,422 million (+31% vs. 9M11), net of capitalization of SAC of P$218 million (+33% vs. 9M11), mainly due to the increase in commissions paid to commercial agents associated with higher revenues from the sale of more sophisticated handsets with the aim of gaining fidelity from clients.
- Advertising amounted to P$475 million (+25% vs. 9M11), oriented towards supporting the commercial activity in mobile and Internet services and to strengthening the brands of the Telecom Group. A significant portion of this increase was also due to the Mobile Number of Portability campaign and Personal's brand positioning efforts.
- Cost of handsets sold totaled P$1,521 million (+31% vs. 9M11), net of capitalization of SAC of P$374 million (+20% vs. 9M11), due to an increase in high-end handsets sales and a higher number of handset upgrades (+25% vs. 9M11), performed to stimulate VAS usage. These effects resulted in the increase of the average cost of handsets.
- Fees for services, maintenance and materials amounted to $1,563 million (+26% vs. 9M11), principally due to increased efforts to improve customer services through focusing on call centers and the increase of labor related costs that are involved in these services.
- Depreciations and Amortizations reached P$1,927 million (+24% vs. 9M11). PP&E depreciation amounted to P$1,325 million (+19% vs. 9M11); SAC and services connection cost amortization totaled P$586 million (+37% vs. 9M11); and other intangible assets amortization reached P$16 million.
- Others Costs totaled P$1,298 million (+30% vs. 9M11). This increase was mainly due to general increases in public services such as electricity and water reaching P$224 million in 9M12 (+91% vs. 9M11), affected by the elimination of Government subsidies. Bad debt expenses reached P$70 million representing 1,6% of consolidated costs, while provisions expenses decreased by -40% vs. 9M11.
Consolidated Financial Results
Financial Results resulted in a gain of P$159 million, an increase of P$121 million vs. 9M11. This was mainly due to a gain in net financial interest of P$194 million in 9M12 (+P$155 million vs. 9M11) derived from a healthy financial position and to losses for FX results of P$29 million in 9M12 (vs. losses of P$3 million in 9M11) as a result of a higher depreciation of the peso.
Consolidated Net Financial Position
As of September 30, 2012, Net Financial Position (Cash, Cash Equivalents and financial Investments minus Loans) totaled P$2,697 million in cash, an improvement of P$672 million vs. Net Financial Position as of September 2011, after the cash dividend payment of P$807 million done by Telecom Argentina in May 2012.
Throughout 9M12, the Company invested P$2,187 million. This amount was allocated to Fixed Services (P$924 million) and Mobile services (P$1,263 million). In relative terms, capex reached 14% of consolidated revenues.
In the mobile business, Telecom continued its 3G network deployment with the intention of extending coverage and simultaneously increasing its capacity, through non conventional solutions that facilitate a faster deployment. Main capital expenditures in the fixed business are focused on replacing copper with fiber using FTTC technology, improving residential fixed broadband bandwidth and making new services available. Moreover, efforts to satisfy increasing data traffic and secure our backbone network are being approached in a convergent way, concerning both mobile and fixed networks.
Other Relevant Matters
On September 5th, 2012 the Secretariat of Communications (´SC´) notified Personal of the cancellation of the Public Auction to reassign the 850 and 1900 MHz frequency bands.
Moreover, the Minister of Federal Planning, Public Investment and Services has instructed the SC to propose the mechanisms and technical legal instruments to reassign the mentioned frequencies to ARSAT (a state owned telecommunications company), as well as to present a business plan for the exploitation of the frequencies , by itself or through third parties.
Personal will continue investing in the network to optimize its usage.
