(1) EBITDA is defined as Revenues minus Operating Cost and Expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization). We believe that EBITDA is a meaningful measure of our performance. It is commonly used to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance, leverage and liquidity. Nonetheless, EBITDA is not a measure of net income or cash flow from operations and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, an indication of our financial performance, an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of liquidity. Other companies may compute EBITDA in a different manner; therefore, EBITDA as reported by other companies may not be comparable to EBITDA as we report it. (2) EBITDA Margin is defined as EBITDA over Revenues.

Cable TV Services

Cable TV service revenues reached P$21,417 million in 9M18 (+42.6% vs. 9M17). This increase was mainly explained by an upselling of value added services combined with price adjustments. Cable TV subscribers totaled almost 3.5 million, while the Cable TV ARPU reached P$674.9 during 9M18, rising +26.9% vs. 9M17. Moreover, average monthly churn during 9M18 was 1.4%.

Moreover, in August Cablevisión incorporated satellite technology to its offer in Uruguay in the cities of Montevideo, Canelones and San José, following a process of technological evolution that will allow adding more high definition channels to its programming and, in the near future, new value added services.

Fixed Telephony and Data Services

During 9M18, revenues generated by fixed telephony and data reached P$13,086 million in 9M18, +36.4% vs. 9M17. The increase in fixed telephony services was mainly explained by monthly fee price increases that came into effect for both corporate and residential fixed line customers, and additionally due to the bundled offer of packs that include voice and internet services ('Arnet + Voz'), that aim to achieve higher levels of customer loyalty and churn reduction.

As a result, the average monthly revenue billed per user ('ARBU') of fixed telephony reached P$236.6 in 9M18, +62.5% vs. 9M17.

Meanwhile, Data revenues increase (services mainly offered to Corporate customers, SMEs, Government and to other operators) was mainly driven by FX rate variations that affected those contracts that were adjusted by the $/U$S exchange rate and due to the increase in the number of clients, generated in a context that evidences the growing position of Telecom as an integrated ICT provider.

In this sense, FiberCorp, Personal and Telecom presented their unified portfolio of products and services for companies. The portfolio for SMEs includes solutions for Connectivity, Communications, IoT, Cloud and Video & Media, while for Large Clients Datacenter and Security services are added to the aforementioned offer.

Internet Services

Internet services revenues totaled P$22,448 million during 9M18, +32.6% vs. 9M17. As of September 30, 2018, total broadband accesses increased to more than 4.1 million (+1.8% vs. 9M17). Additionally, broadband ARPU amounted to P$604.8 per month in 9M18 (+34.9% vs. 9M17). Moreover, the average monthly churn rate for the period was 1.9%. On the other hand, clients with service of 20Mb or higher currently represent 34% of the total customer base as of 9M18.

Consolidated Operating Costs

Consolidated Operating Costs totaled P$79,550 million in 9M18, an increase of P$16,484 million, or +26.1% vs. 9M17 (including D&A and impairment of PP&E). Continuing with the trend observed during the lasts quarters, this overall increase is below inflation levels and moreover Revenue growth, which allowed a significant increase in the Company's Operating Income before D&A and to improve its margin. This was a result of a higher level of efficiency achieved in the cost structure. Higher costs are mainly associated to the effect of higher revenues, a highly competitive environment in the mobile, cable TV and broadband businesses, the impact of higher direct and indirect labor costs generated by the operations in Argentina, the increase in costs of services contracted with suppliers, higher programming and content costs due the incorporation of broadcasting signals of football matches.

The cost breakdown is as follows:

- Employee benefit expenses and severance payments totaled P$17,596 million (+22.8% vs. 9M17), mainly impacted by increases in salaries to unionized and non-unionized employees together with the associated social security contributions. Finally, total employees at the end of 9M18 amounted to 25,775 (vs. 26,975 in 9M17).

- Interconnection and transmission costs (including TLRD, Roaming, international settlement charges and lease of circuits) amounted to P$3,203 million, +16.8% vs. 9M17. This increase is mostly explained by higher TLRD costs.

- Fees for services, maintenance, materials and supplies amounted to P$9,245 million (+12.3% vs. 9M17), mainly due to increases in fees for services, mostly related to call centers and higher professional generated by a higher level of activity fees driven mainly by new Company projects and by services linked to operational management in general. There were also higher technical maintenance costs and higher hardware and software maintenance costs due to price increases, the U$S FX fluctuations and the higher level of activity.

- Taxes and fees with regulatory authorities reached P$8,009 million (+30.2% vs. 9M17). The increase was mainly due to the growth in revenues.

- Commissions and advertising (Commissions paid to agents, prepaid card distribution commissions and others) totaled P$6,333 million (+28.8% vs. 9M17). The increase is mostly due to higher fees paid in favor of commercial channels and collection fees.

- Cost of handsets sold totaled P$5,370 million (+9.1% vs. 9M17); this increase was mainly associated with an increase in the average unit cost, partially offset by a decrease in the quantities sold.


- Programming and content costs totaled P$7,144 million (+56.5% vs. 9M17), largely due to the incorporation of the cost of signals to broadcast live football matches of the first division of the Argentine Football Association, price increases and fluctuation of the P$/U$S exchange rate.

- Depreciation, amortization and impairment of PP&E amounted P$15,252 million (+27.6% vs. 9M17). Depreciations of PP&E totaled P$12,184 million, amortizations of intangible assets reached P$2,799 million, while the losses of PP&E reached P$191 million and the impairment of PP&E P$78 million. The higher charge is mostly due to a greater amortization and depreciation of PP&E and intangibles, corresponding to higher values ??allocated to the aforementioned assets resulting from the acquisition method under IFRS 3.

- Other Costs totaled P$7,398 million (+40.7% vs. 9M17), of which bad debt expenses reached P$1,990 million (+52.6% vs. 9M17), and whose increase is mainly due to the impact generated by the application as of the FY2018 of IFRS 9, as well as other operating costs that totaled P$5,408 million (36.7% vs. 9M17).

Net Financial Results

The Net Financial Results (including Financial Costs on Debt and Other Financial Results, net) showed a loss of P$47,218 million, compared with a loss of P$2,281 million in 9M17. The result was mainly due to FX losses of P$45,864 million (compared with a loss of P$1,387 million in 9M17), mostly due to the strong depreciation of the peso during the 9M18, followed by net interest losses of P$1,908 million (representing a greater loss of P$1,858 million vs. 9M17), which are partially offset by gains on investments of P$1,491million (that generated greater earnings of P$1,517 million vs. 9M17).

Consolidated Net Financial Debt

As of September 30, 2018, net financial debt position (cash, cash equivalents plus financial investments and financial NDF minus loans) totaled P$67,901 million,
increasing when compared to the consolidated net financial debt position as of December 31, 2017 (calculated as the sum of consolidated net financial debt positions of Telecom Argentina and Cablevisión, which was P$9,580 million).

Capital Expenditures

During 9M18, the Company invested P$24,046 million, increasing approximately 49.5% from the sum of the parts of Telecom Argentina's and Cablevisión's CAPEX as of 9M17, focusing on projects that maximize the network capacity and on the development of products and services that contribute to address the customer's needs that today demand for connectivity and data availability. Moreover, transmision and transport networks has been extended to unify the differents access technologies, reconverting the copper fixed networks into fiber or coaxial-fiber hybrid networks, in order to face the the increaseing services demand from mobile and fixed clients. Likewise, significant investments have been made in the charging, billing and relationship systems with customers. The Company aims to improve the capacity and coverage of its networks, which is key factor for the transformation towards convergent services with international quality standards, but also to leverage the content business, with Flow as an integral content platform and entertainment center, whose competitive advantages and differential features place it above other platforms. In relative terms, CAPEX reached 24.2% of consolidated revenues.

As part of its infrastructure deployment strategy, during the last months Telecom has made several agreements in the interior of the country and in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area, in order to expand its access network and improve the speed and capacity of mobile connections, thus boosting the navigation experience for the clients. Among the most relevant agreements are those reached with the city of Santa Fe (Santa Fe province), the province of Jujuy, and the municipalities of Ezeiza and Lomas de Zamora (Buenos Aires metropolitan area).
