4Q17 and 2017 HIGHLIGHTS

 
                                                                              

Stabilization of operations with cost efficiency, higher margins and operational improvements in 2017

 

In 2016 and 2017, the restructuring process on several fronts enabled the Company to stabilize its operation:

·

Management’s priorities were quality improvement, digital transformation, cost control, cash management and debt restructuring with the approval of the Judicial Reorganization. Important results on these fronts have been preparing Oi for a new investment cycle.

Initiatives designed to increase operational efficiency and improve customer experience resulted in consistently better quality and operational indicators.

·

Infrastructure upgrade, network capacity expansion and preventive actions designed to increase productivity and improve customer service quality, as well as service and process digitalization, created synergies for the Company.
 

·

As a result, Oi recorded an improvement in customer satisfaction in 2017, with continuous reductions in ANATEL (-23.0% y.o.y.) and Small Claims Court (JEC) (-46.3% y.o.y.) complaint indicators.

The intensification of the digital program enabled efficiency gains and a better customer experience, with process automation (robotization and artificial intelligence) and increased digitalization of sales and customer service (e-care, e-billing and e-commerce).

Cost reduction due to increased operational efficiency came to R$ 1.5 billion in 2017, while routine EBITDA totaled R$ 6.2 billion, 2.3% higher than the estimate in the Judicial Reorganization Plan.

Oi’s cash position closed 2017 at R$ 7.0 billion, in line with the Judicial Reorganization Plan’s Report, which projects a cash position of R$ 6.188 billion at the end of 2018. 

The approval of the Judicial Reorganization Plan by a substantial majority will allow Oi to reduce its debt by over R$ 35 billion, enabling us to resume the investment cycle.

Structural fronts have stabilized the operations and the Company is now preparing to begin a new growth cycle through the acceleration of investments funded by the capital increase.

·

The additional CAPEX plan funded by the capital increase includes annual investments of R$ 7 billion for the coming years, with strategies for the mobile and fixed line network supporting our business transformation, growth and sustainability.

(1) In 4Q16, the Company revised and changed the criteria for segmenting revenues and revenue generating units (RGUs) among the various business units (BUs), as it believes this new breakdown better reflects how the businesses are managed. Historical revenue and RGU figures were adjusted in order to reflect this change. To see the reclassified historical data, please refer to the Additional Information section of this document.

 

In 4Q17, consolidated net revenues totaled R$ 5,828 million (-7.8% y.o.y. and -2.3% q.o.q.). Net revenues from Brazilian operations (“Brazil”) came to R$ 5,782 million, down 2.3% from the previous quarter and 5.4% from 4Q16, while net revenues from international operations (Africa and East Timor) totaled R$ 46 million, virtually in line with the previous quarter and down 78.3% from 4Q16. The year-on-year decline was due to the reduction in the interest held by one of our companies in the capital stock of the Namibian telecom operator Mobile Telecommunications Limited in January 2017, as disclosed to the market on January 31, 2017.

In 2017, consolidated net revenues totaled R$ 23,790 million, down 8.5% from 2016. Net revenues from Brazilian operations totaled R$ 23,557 million in 2017, 6.4% less than in 2016, while net revenue from international operations came to R$ 233 million, down 72.1% from 2016.

 

BRAZIL

 

Net revenues from the Brazilian operations totaled R$ 5,782 million in 4Q17, down 5.4% from 4Q16 and 2.3% from 3Q17. The annual performance was due to the combination of: (i) the cut in the regulated interconnection (MTR, TU-RL and TU-RIU) and fixed-to-mobile (VC) tariffs; (ii) the natural downward trend in fixed voice traffic; and (iii) the decline in recharge volume, the recharger base in the prepaid segment and B2B revenues, due to the economic downturn and the higher unemployment rate compared with 4Q16. B2B revenues were also impacted by the judicial reorganization process, will be explained later on. On the other hand, continuous year-on-year growth in pay-TV revenues from the Residential segment and data and postpaid + control revenues from the Mobility segment partially offset these negative impacts in the year.

The sequential decline in net revenues from Brazilian operations was mainly due to the effect of the annual rate increase in 3Q17, which impacted churn in 4Q17, affecting both Residential and Mobility postpaid revenues, partially offset by higher data revenues and pay-TV revenues from the Residential segment in 4Q17.

Total net service revenues, which exclude handset revenues, stood at R$ 5,722 million in 4Q17 (-5.4% y.o.y. and -2.4% q.o.q.), while total net customer revenues, which exclude handset and network usage revenues, came to R$ 5,517 million (-5.3% y.o.y. and -2.8% q.o.q.). In 2017, total net service revenues came to R$ 23,328 million, 6.5% less than in 2016, while total net customer revenues amounted to R$ 22,559 million, down 5.7% from 2016. These changes were also caused by the above-mentioned reasons.

Historical revenue and RGU figures were adjusted in order to reflect this change. To see the reclassified historical data, please refer to the Additional Information section of this document.

 

In 4Q17, net revenues from the Residential segment totaled R$ 2,269 million, down 2.2% from 3Q17 and 2.0% lower than in 4Q16. In the annual comparison, net revenues fell 2.0%, mostly as a result of a shrinking customer base, lower voice traffic and the annual cut in the regulated interconnection (MTR, TU-RL and TU-RIU) and fixed-to-mobile (VC) tariffs, partially offset by growth in pay-TV revenues (+24.0% y.o.y.). The sequential decline in revenues was due to the decline in the customer base, intensified by the annual rate increase of service plans in 3Q17, which had a negative impact on churn in 4Q17 and accelerated the erosion of gains arising from the rate increase and other initiatives, such as the results of migration and plan adjustments in certain customer segments. 

In 2017, net revenues from the Residential segment totaled R$ 9,171 million, 2.2% less than in 2016, due to lower fixed voice and interconnection revenues, partially offset by higher broadband and pay-TV revenues.

Oi closed 4Q17 with 15,885 thousand RGUs in the Residential segment, down 1.5% from 3Q17 and 3.3% from 4Q16. The annual and sequential declines were mainly due to the reduction in the fixed line base, driven by: (i) a natural market trend and (ii) the combination of two rate increases during the year.  The first increase was due to the decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) to levy ICMS tax on subscriptions that do not include allowances and the subsequent pass-through of this tax to customers’ bills in the first half of 2017, and the second was caused by the annual rate increase of service plans in 3Q17. Nevertheless, the Company’s gross adds climbed 4.6% over 4Q16, and annual gross adds were 14.3% higher than in 2016.

Residential ARPU

Residential ARPU totaled R$ 81.3 in 4Q17, up 5.3% on 4Q16 and 0.2% on 3Q17, driven by an upturn in pay-TV ARPU (+7.2% y.o.y. and +1.4% q.o.q.), as well as growth  in convergent offers, with continuous increase in the number of households with more than one Oi product (+2.6 p.p. y.o.y. and +0.5 p.p. q.o.q.).

Fixed line

Oi ended 4Q17 with 9,233 thousand fixed line customers in the Residential segment (-7.2% y.o.y. and -2.5% q.o.q.), driven by the slowdown in fixed line gross adds (-1.1% y.o.y. and -14.3% q.o.q.).

As a result of the Company’s sales efforts focused on higher profitability offers, the share of low-end offerings in fixed line gross adds accelerated its downward trend in 4Q17, falling 10.3 p.p. from 4Q16 and 4.2 p.p. from 3Q17, while bundle revenues climbed 43.7% over 4Q16 and 7.5% over 3Q17. With a little over 2.0 million customers at the end of 4Q17, Oi Total convergent offerings continued to grow, accounting for 22.9% of the fixed line base at the end of the quarter, with 20.7% more customers than in 3Q17.

In addition to playing an important role in the strategy to increase profitability in this segment, convergent offers help build customer loyalty by increasing the number of households with more than one Oi product. At the end of 4Q17, Oi Total Residential (3P)  had a churn rate 36.6% lower than the one recorded by the standalone offering, while the Oi Voz Total (OVT) offer, which still accounted for 9.9% of the fixed line base in the segment, recorded a churn rate 29.7% lower than that of the standalone offering.


 
 

OPERATING RESULTS

                                                                

Continuing with the efforts initiated in 1Q16 to promote the organic migration from the previous convergent offer, Oi Conta Total (OCT), to Oi Total, 53.2% of gross adds of Oi Total Solução Completa (4P) in 4Q17 were former OCT (3P) customers. Oi Total and OCT together accounted for 25.4% of the fixed base in 4Q17, a significant increase of 9.0 p.p. over 4Q16 and 3.5 p.p. over 3Q17.

In line with the market trend of offering customers plans featuring unlimited minutes, Oi expanded unlimited fixed plans in the fixed line base, especially Oi Total offerings, reaching 44.2% of the fixed line customer base in 4Q17, 9.4 p.p. more than in 4Q16 and 2.9 p.p. more than in the previous quarter.

Broadband

Oi ended 4Q17 with 5,156 thousand fixed broadband RGUs in the Residential segment (-0.6% y.o.y. and -1.0% q.o.q.). Even in this adverse scenario, broadband gross adds moved up 8.6% over 4Q16, but fell 8.6% from 3Q17. Despite this slowdown, annual gross adds were 15.7% higher than in 2016.

As part of the strategy to increase profitability through convergence, Oi has been focusing on structural network investments in order to enable the sales of high-end offers, featuring higher broadband speeds. VDSL technology (broadband with speeds of up to 35 Mbps) has been boosting Oi Total sales, increasing the share of high-end offers featuring higher speeds in the base. Oi’s broadband penetration in households with an Oi fixed line has been recording consistent growth, reaching 55.8% in 4Q17 (+3.7 p.p. y.o.y. and +0.8 p.p. q.o.q.), while the share of low-end offers in broadband gross adds continued to decline (-5.0 p.p. y.o.y. and -1.8 p.p. q.o.q.).

As a result of network investments, the average broadband base reached 8.3 Mbps, an increase of 21.7% over 4Q16 and 4.7% over 3Q17. The share of RGUs with speeds starting at 5 Mbps increased 8.1 p.p. over 4Q16 to 78.2%, while the share of  RGUs with speeds starting at 10 Mbps grew 11.4 p.p. to 58.4% and the share of RGUs with speeds starting at 15 Mbps rose 11.4 p.p. to 24.2% in the same period. It is worth mentioning that the average speed of  broadband gross adds, which exceeded the mark of 10 Mbps in 3Q17, reached 10.7 Mbps in 4Q17 (+13.7% y.o.y. and +3.5% q.o.q.). In 4Q17, 71.6% of gross adds had speeds starting at 10 Mbps (+9.3 p.p. y.o.y.) and 45.9% had speeds starting at 15 Mbps (+11.8 p.p. y.o.y.).

In July 2017, the Company launched Oi Total Play, a pioneering offer in the Brazilian market that has a value proposition for broadband and reinforces Oi’s strategies of promoting digital transformation and expanding convergent residential services. Oi Total Play combines a fixed line with unlimited calls to any fixed line phone, up to 15 mega broadband, a Wi-Fi modem and extensive video content, including on-demand options, that can be accessed by various devices using the Oi Play platform, without the need to subscribe to a pay-TV package. The fourth-quarter results show that, on average, more than 10% of new Oi Total Play customers purchased paid content, 50% of whom accessed the wide range of films, series, sports and cartoons available on the platform in the first month after acquiring the service. In addition, the Oi Total Play portfolio helped increase by 24% the share of 100% new Oi customers, i.e. those who did not even have a fixed line, in the customer acquisition mix.

Pay TV

Oi closed 4Q17 with 1,496 thousand pay-TV RGUs in the Residential segment, recording growth in both annual and
sequential terms for the seventh consecutive quarter, up 16.0% on 3Q16 and 3.3% on 3Q17. Oi TV has been directly contributing to growth in
Oi Total sales and base, fueling the success of the convergence strategy in the Residential segment.

Oi TV’s gross adds were 9.0% higher than in 4Q16 and 10.3% lower than in 3Q17, while the churn rate fell 0.2 p.p. and 0.4 p.p., respectively, in the same comparisons. The increase in gross adds and the reduction in the churn rate supported the upward trend of net adds in the annual comparison, totaling 206 thousand RGU net adds in 2017. In the sequential comparison, despite the decline in gross adds, the lower churn rate contributed to the 47 thousand RGU net adds in the fourth quarter.   

Oi TV’s penetration in households with Oi fixed line continued to grow, reaching 16.2% in 4Q17 (+3.2 p.p. y.o.y. and +0.9 p.p. q.o.q.). The share of high-end offers in Oi’s pay-TV sales mix continued to increase, moving up 0.5 p.p. over the same period in 2016, while the share of high-end offers in the pay-TV customer base increased 3.6 p.p. to 30.9%. Growth in high-end pay-TV sales, driven by the healthy performance of Oi Total convergent offers, has been supporting the increase in pay-TV ARPU (+7.2% y.o.y. and +1.4% q.o.q.).

(1) In 4Q16, the Company revised and changed the criteria for segmenting revenues and revenue generating units (RGUs) among the various business units (BUs), as it believes this new breakdown better reflects how the businesses are managed. Historical revenue and RGU figures were adjusted in order to reflect this change. To see the reclassified historical data, please refer to the Additional Information section of this document.
(2) Excludes handset and network usage revenues.
(3) Includes postpaid plans, Oi Controle, bundled mobile services and 3G (mini-modem).

Net revenues from the Personal Mobility segment totaled R$ 1,887 million in 4Q17, down 2.9% from 4Q16 and 2.7% from 3Q17. The sequential reduction was mainly due to the impact of the annual rate increase in the postpaid segment as of July 2017, influencing the churn rate in 4Q17, combined with the negative effect of seasonality on the prepaid segment in 4Q17, caused by the fact that the fourth quarter has fewer business days, reducing recharge volume compared to 3Q17, with a direct impact on revenues. The annual decline was due to: (i) the downturn in voice revenues, mainly driven by the reduction in prepaid recharge volume as a result of the country’s high unemployment rates and (ii) lower network usage revenues, following the annual cuts in MTR interconnection tariffs.

In 4Q17, customer revenues, which exclude interconnection and handsets, totaled R$ 1,693 million, down 2.2% from 4Q16 and 3.9% less than in 3Q17. Maintaining an upward trend, customer revenues from the postpaid + control segment (excluding long-distance revenues) continued to grow, climbing 4.6% over 4Q16.  The annual increase in customer revenues was virtually offset by the 3.2% decline in prepaid revenues (also excluding long-distance revenues) in the period. Compared to 3Q17, customer revenues fell chiefly due to the effects of the rate increase in the postpaid segment and the fourth-quarter seasonal decline in prepaid recharge, as explained above.

Data revenues continued their upward trend, reaching R$ 1,038 million (+7.4% y.o.y. and +0.1% q.o.q.) and accounted for 61.3% of total customer revenues in the quarter (+5.5 p.p. y.o.y. and +2.4 p.p. q.o.q.). In line with the market trend of migration from voice services to data, Oi has been offering increasingly high data allowances, reaching up to 30GB in postpaid offers, as well as resources that enable conversion between minutes and data for Oi Livre and Oi Mais Controle in the prepaid and control segments, respectively.


 
 

OPERATING RESULTS

                                                            

Network usage revenues totaled R$ 135 million in 4Q17, 9.3% more than in 3Q17, due to higher incoming traffic volume, as a result of the plans offering unlimited minutes available on the market Network usage revenues fell 13.4% from 4Q16, mainly due to the regulated MTR cuts. In February 2016, interconnection tariffs (MTR) declined to R$ 0.09317, R$ 0.10309 and R$ 0.11218 in Regions I, II and III, respectively.  In February 2017, these tariffs fell to R$ 0.04928, R$ 0.05387 and R$ 0.06816 in Regions I, II and III, respectively. In February 2018, these same tariffs fell to R$ 0.02606, R$ 0.02815 and R$ 0.04141. ANATEL approved the following future cuts for 2019: R$ 0.01379, R$ 0.01471 and R$ 0.02517 in Regions I, II and III, respectively.

Handset revenues totaled R$ 60 million in 4Q17 (+2.1% y.o.y. and +9.8% q.o.q.); smartphones accounted for almost 100% of sales and 82% of the handsets sold were 4G, whose penetration in the base increased 21.0 p.p. over 4Q16.

Oi closed 4Q17 with 36,648 thousand RGUs in the Personal Mobility segment, down 8.1% from 4Q16 and 7.5% from 3Q17.  In 4Q17, Oi recorded 2,978 thousand net disconnections, comprising 88 thousand net disconnections in the postpaid segment and 2,890 thousand net disconnections in the prepaid segment (versus 156 thousand net disconnections in 3Q17). The increase in prepaid net disconnections in 4Q17 was in line with a strict disconnection policy for inactive customers, designed to reduce fee payments and preserve the Company’s cash.

Oi’s mobile customer base (Personal Mobility + B2B) reached 38,964 thousand RGUs in 4Q17, 36,648 thousand of which in the Personal Mobility segment and 2,316 thousand in the B2B segment. Gross adds in the Personal Mobility segment totaled 4.5 million, while net disconnections came to 2,969 thousand in 4Q17.

Prepaid

The prepaid customer base closed 4Q17 with 29,917 thousand RGUs (-9.3% y.o.y. and -8.8% q.o.q.). The annual comparison was mostly due to the SIM card consolidation movement observed in the market, the still slow recovery in the country’s macroeconomic environment and an increase in disconnections of inactive customers. The sequential base decline was mainly caused by the disconnection of inactive customers.

Even in a delicate macro scenario, recharge per business day edged up 1.1 p.p. over 3Q17, although recharge volume fell 1.6% in the quarter because the fourth quarter had fewer business days than third quarter.

In order to attract customers and provide a better user experience, the Company also offers innovative solutions for the prepaid segment, such as Oi Livre, which features more extensive data allowances and the all-net model, and accounted for 66% of the prepaid customer base at the end of 4Q17 (+2.7 p.p. q.o.q. and +20.8 p.p. q.o.q.). Since the end of 2Q17, Oi Livre began offering a feature that allows customers to choose whether they will use voice minutes or data directly on the Minha Oi app, with no exchange limits or additional costs.  As a result, prepaid ARPU continued to grow this quarter, moving up 7.5% over 4Q16 and 1.5% over 3Q17, driven by the increase in data revenues.  In addition, at the end of 4Q17, Oi Livre’s average ticket was 14.2% higher than those of other offers, underlining the contribution of offers featuring data solutions to improving the base profile.

Postpaid

Oi closed the quarter with 6,731 thousand RGUs in the postpaid + control segment (-2.1% y.o.y. and -1.3% q.o.q.), accounting for 18.4% of the total Personal Mobility customer base, 1.1 p.p. up on 3Q17. 

Postpaid revenues (excluding long-distance revenues) moved up 4.6% over 4Q16, contributing to the 5.3% annual increase in postpaid revenues (excluding MTR). Compared to the previous quarter, ARPU fell 4.9%, chiefly due to the decline in revenues in the period, as explained above.

Oi Mais and Oi Mais Controle, the main offers in the postpaid + control segment, feature extensive data and minute allowances, enabling customers to call any operator anywhere in the country at competitive prices. These offers boosted sales and contributed to the increase in ARPU of gross adds in 4Q17 (+11.4% y.o.y. and +1.0% q.o.q.). At the end of 4Q17, Oi Mais and Oi Mais Controle accounted for 61% of the total postpaid + control base (versus 55% at the end of 3Q17).

2G, 3G and 4G LTE Coverage 

Oi’s 2G coverage reached 3,407 municipalities at the end of 4Q17 (corresponding to 93% of the country’s urban population), while 3G coverage reached 1,603 municipalities (+8.1% y.o.y.), or 81% of the Brazilian urban population. 

At the end of 4Q17, 4G LTE coverage reached 813 municipalities, or 73% of Brazil’s urban population, 10 p.p. more than in 4Q16.

Oi works in partnership with other operators to share the 3G/4G network in order to optimize investments and reduce costs while seeking to continuously improve the quality of services and customer experience. In this regard, in late February 2018, Oi entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with TIM Participações S.A., beginning negotiations to solve old disputes and starting a new cycle of infrastructure sharing plans, in line with other current partnerships in the Brazilian telecom market. In order to meet the growing demand for data, Oi has also been focusing its efforts on improving its own 3G and 4G network capacity and coverage quality so as to allow consistent growth of data traffic in the network and equip us to achieve consistent improvements in ANATEL’s network quality metrics.

Mobile ARPU

In 4Q17, mobile ARPU stood at R$ 16.2, 4.7% higher than in 4Q16 and virtually in line (+0.6%) with the previous quarter.  Excluding interconnection revenues, mobile ARPU increased 5.5% over 4Q16 and remained virtually flat (-0.3%) compared with 3Q17.

In 4Q17, net revenues from the B2B segment totaled R$ 1,559 million (-12.9% y.o.y. and -2.3% q.o.q.). The decline in B2B revenues was due to: (i) lower voice traffic, following the natural market trend; (ii) the cut in regulated interconnection (MTR) and fixed-to-mobile (VC) tariffs; (iii) the slowdown in the country’s economic activity, with impacts on corporate and government customers, who tried to reduce costs, and small and medium enterprises, which are being downsized or closing; and (iv) the Company’s judicial reorganization process, which made it difficult for the Company to enter into new agreements throughout 2017. 


 
 

OPERATING RESULTS

                                                                            

Even in this adverse scenario, Oi remains focused on increasing profitability in the B2B segment, investing in improving the quality of its products and services, offering innovative products, digitalizing its services and adjusting offers to customers’ needs. As a result of constant improvements in the quality of  services, we saw an increase in customer satisfaction, measured by the consistent improvement in operational quality indicators in Large Companies (Corporate + Wholesale) and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). In the Corporate segment, the Company continued investing in innovative IT and information security solutions and service digitalization in order to meet customers’ needs and increase non-voice revenues. Thanks to these initiatives, non-voice B2B revenues already accounted for more than 60% of total revenues, while IT revenues in the B2B segment rose 24.4% over 4Q16. In the SMEs segment, Oi has been launching convergent offers focused on portability at prices that are both attractive for customers and sustainable for the Company, helping improve ARPU of gross adds and customer profitability.

The Company recorded 6,512 thousand RGUs in the B2B segment in 4Q17, falling 1.6% from 4Q16 and remaining in line with 3Q17. In the annual comparison, despite the base reduction, disconnections are slowing down (-104 thousand RGUs in 4Q17 vs. 4Q16, -140 thousand RGUs in 4Q16 vs. 4Q15 and -539 thousand RGUs in 4Q15 vs. 4Q14), thanks to operational improvements focused on increased efficiency and quality. It is also worth noting that the B2B mobile, broadband and pay-TV customer base grew slightly compared to the previous quarter and that the mobile base also increased in the annual comparison.

Corporate

Corporate was the segment most heavily impacted by the deterioration in the Brazilian macro environment and the public sector crisis, which affected large private, mixed-economy and government customers, who needed to reduce the scope of their activities and renegotiate agreements. In addition, the Company’s judicial reorganization also created obstacles to the acquisition new corporate customers, due to uncertainty dating back from before the approval of the Judicial Recovery Plan (in December 2017) related to the debt restructuring and the Company’s priorities, inhibiting new customers from entering into long-term agreements with Oi.

At the same time, the Corporate segment has been prioritizing the provision of high value-added alternative services in order to reduce their dependence on traffic revenues and increase non-voice revenues. The segment has been concentrating sales in high-margin services, including advanced data, Internet of Things (IoT), IT (Datacenter, Oi Smart Cloud, Colocation, Hosting), Big Data & Analytics and cybersecurity solutions, in line with the Company’s strategy of digital transformation. As a result, non-voice service revenues accounted for over 70% of Corporate revenues, 0.5 p.p. more than in 4Q16, driven by growth in IT revenues, up 25.3% on 4Q16. Still on the digitalization front, throughout 2017, Oi worked to migrate from printed to digital bills, as a way to simplify payment for customers and reduce costs, thus generating gains for the Company. By the end of 4Q17, 60% of the total printed pages of Large Corporations (Corporate + Wholesale) had already been converted.

As a result of the focus on improving the operational service quality, Oi continues improving its indicators in the Large Companies segment, with a year-on-year decline of 7.1% in the average time until installation and 35.3% in billing complaints.  

SMEs

The slowdown in the Brazilian economy also strongly impacted the SMEs segment, with a reduction in revenues and the customer base. In order to mitigate this external adverse impact, Oi has been focusing on improving operational indicators, launching offers better suited to customers’ needs, the broadband upselling strategy and digitalization, in order to increase customer loyalty and profitability, as well as the customer experience.

As a result of the Company’s efforts to improve the quality of services, Oi continued to record better operational and quality indicators in the SMEs segment. At the end of 4Q17, the average time until installation fell 22.4% from 4Q16, while billing complaints declined 49.6% in the same period.

In 3Q17, Oi launched a new portfolio of mobile offers for SMEs, with more benefits to customers, without changing the strategy of offering competitive prices. These offer updates include (i) unlimited minutes in all postpaid plans; (ii) a more extensive voice allowance and unlimited national on-net traffic in the Controle plan; (iii) increase in the data allowance of the Oi Mais entry plan from 5GB to 6GB; and (iv) highly competitive prices in the sale of multiple accesses (over 50). These new offers were designed to meet customers’ needs and help attract high-quality gross adds, increasing ARPU of the base and gross adds. Together with the portfolio update, the Company has been expanding its sales channels for SMEs, increasing the salesforce both in telesales and physical stores in order to support gross add growth. Oi managed to increase the store salesforce by 18.1% between 3Q17 and 4Q17. 


 
 

OPERATING RESULTS

                                                                      

This segment’s main offer is Oi Mais Empresas, featuring mobile plans with 4G data, unlimited minutes and fixed lines at a fixed monthly fee (flat fee model), allowing increased cash flow predictability, which adds to its appeal. At the end of 4Q17, this offer represented 50% of the fixed line customer base (+4.0 p.p. q.o.q.) and 47% of the mobile customer base (+4.0 p.p. q.o.q.) of this segment.

This offer also includes the Oi Mais Empresas app, which features a fully digital customer service channel that allows customers to contract plan upgrades, make bill complaints and request bill copies and repairs, among others, all via smartphone, without the need to contact our call center. More than 390 thousand small and medium enterprises have signed up for the new offering portfolio and are benefiting from the app, which has a user satisfaction level of 93%.

In 4Q17, consolidated routine opex, including international operations, totaled R$ 4,576 million, in line with 4Q16 (+0.2%) and 5.0% higher than in 3Q17.

Routine opex in the Brazilian operations totaled R$ 4,482 million in 4Q17, up 1.1% on 4Q16 and up 3.7% on 3Q17. Considering inflation (IPCA) of 2.95% in the last twelve months, this result corresponded to a decrease of 1.8% in real terms compared to 4Q16. In 2017, routine opex in Brazilian operations came to R$ 17,367 million, a reduction of 7.7% in nominal terms or 10.3% in real terms from 2016.

It is important to highlight that this reduction in costs and expenses occurred in a diligent manner, planned so as not to compromise the quality of Oi’s activities and services, as underlined by the improvement in operational and quality indicators, with a direct impact on customer satisfaction levels.

Personnel

Personnel expenses in Brazilian operations totaled R$ 2,749 million in 2017, stable in relation to the R$ 2,750 million in 2016, even considering the impacts related to the Collective Agreement on salaries and projects that culminated in the internalization of labor, thus increasing personnel expenses, but which have brought quality improvement and reduction in the Company's total costs. This result was achieved through initiatives that increased efficiency in some areas, as well as strict cost control related in personnel expenses.

In 4Q17, personnel expenses totaled R$ 829 million, +31.6% versus 4Q16 and +23.2% versus 3Q17. These increases are mainly due to: i) continued structuring of internal teams to leverage strategic projects of the Company, in addition to the internalization of services rendered by third parties, with the purpose of improving productivity and quality in critical processes; ii) increases in provisions for payments of variable compensation related to the fulfillment of operational, financial and quality goals established for 2017 and foreseen in a collective bargaining agreement signed with the unions.

Interconnection

Interconnection costs in Brazilian operations came to R$ 192 million in 4Q17, down 34.3% from 4Q16, chiefly due to the interconnection (MTR, TU-RL and TU-RIU) tariff cuts in February 2017. In the sequential comparison, interconnection costs climbed 7.7%, due to the increase in off-net traffic volume, as a result of the offers based on the all-net model.

Third-party Services


 
 

OPERATING RESULTS

                                                                           

In 4Q17, costs and expenses related to third-party services in Brazilian operations totaled R$ 1,483 million, down 3.3% from 4Q16 and down 4.5% from 3Q17. These declines were mostly due to lower spending on legal
advisory and consulting services and lower call center expenses in 4Q17, partially offset by higher content acquisition (TV and VAS) and sales commission expenses. It is important to point out that the reduction in consulting and call center expenses was the result of several efforts designed to increase efficiency, including the customer service quality model and the
Cuidar do Cliente (Caring for the Customer) program, both of which were implemented by Oi in order to improve customer service quality and processes. The results of these initiatives are underlined by continuous improvement in several indicators, such as an 8.9% drop in customer service costs, a 22.8% decline in the number of repeated calls and a 7.8% increase in customer satisfaction compared with 4Q16.

Network Maintenance Services

Network maintenance service costs and expenses in Brazilian operations totaled R$ 298 million in 4Q17, 10.8% higher than in 4Q16 and 8.7% lower than in 3Q17. The increase over 4Q16 was mainly due to the insourcing of technical support call center operations in 2017 and contractual adjustments in the period.

The sequential reduction in network maintenance service costs and expenses was due to a lower number of incidents, thanks to initiatives focused on preventive actions and productivity improvements, which have been increasing the efficiency of field operations. As a result, the Company has been recording significant improvements in the quality of services, expressed by indicators such as average waiting time for problem resolution (-9.3% y.o.y.), rework rate within 30 days (-19.2% y.o.y.), average time until installation (-11.8% y.o.y.) and complaints to ANATEL for technical reasons (23.0% y.o.y.).

Handset Costs/Other (COGS)

Handset costs in Brazilian operations reached R$ 62 million in 4Q17, R$ 9 million less than in 4Q16 and R$ 17 million more than in 3Q17.

Marketing

Marketing expenses totaled R$ 128 million in 4Q17, down 12.2% from 4Q16 and up 10.7% on 3Q17. The year-on-year reduction was due to a decline in campaign activity between 4Q16 and 4Q17. The sequential increase was due to the intensification of campaigns for Oi Total and the prepaid segment, as well as higher institutional marketing expenses.

Rent and Insurance

Rent and insurance expenses in Brazilian operations totaled R$ 953 million in 4Q17, down 13.0% from 4Q16 and 11.6% from 3Q17, mainly due to lower expenses related to right-of-way and pole, tower and equipment.

Provision for Contingencies

The provision for contingencies in Brazilian operations totaled R$ 145 million in 4Q17, 11.4% and 20.1% higher than in 4Q16 and 3Q17, respectively, basically due to a fine imposed by ANATEL in 4Q17 related to previous years, offset by the lower number of new claims in the JEC (Small Claims Court).

Provision for Bad Debt

The provision for bad debt came to R$ 223 million in 4Q17 (+35.4% y.o.y. and +28.7% q.o.q.). These variations are mainly due to the recognition of provision for bad debt related to dealers in 4Q17.

(1) 3Q17, 2Q17, 1Q17, 4Q16 and 2016 data were adjusted as explained in the Disclaimer section of this document.

 

In 4Q17, consolidated routine EBITDA totaled R$ 1,299 million, falling 26.1% from 4Q16 and 19.1% from 3Q17. In 2017, consolidated routine EBITDA stood at R$ 6,244 million, down 6.8% from 2016.

Routine EBITDA from Brazilian operations amounted to R$ 1,300 million in 4Q17, a decline of 22.4% from 4Q16 and 18.6% from 3Q17, due to the reduction in revenues from Brazilian operations in the period, combined with higher costs in 4Q17. The routine EBITDA margin from Brazilian operations was 22.5% (-4.9 p.p. y.o.y. and -4.5 p.p. q.o.q.). In 2017, routine EBITDA from Brazilian operations totaled R$ 6,190 million, a decline of 2.4% from 2016, accompanied by a margin of 26.3%, 1.1 p.p. higher than in 2016.

Routine EBITDA from international operations (Africa and East Timor) totaled -R$ 1 million in the quarter, versus R$ 81 million in 4Q16 and R$ 9 million in 3Q17. This variation is due to higher costs in 4Q17 is due to higher expenses with consulting and third-party services, together with the reduction in the interest held by one of Oi companies in the capital stock of the Namibian telecom operator Mobile Telecommunications Limited in January 2017, in accordance with the Notice to the Market disclosed on January 31. In 2017, routine EBITDA from international operations totaled R$ 54 million, versus R$ 357 million in 2016.

As disclosed via Material Fact on March 28, 2018, the judicial reorganization process, with the approval and homologation of its Plan, and the commitment to the adequacy of the treatment of the accounting information and the quality of its disclosure to the market led the Company to discuss with the external audit details about the accounting recognition of certain assumptions of the Plan, and its consequences on the opening balance of 2016 and on the Company's financial statements for the fiscal years ended 2016 and 2017. In this sense, part of the accounting adjustments resulting from this adequacy affected the Company's results for 2017. With respect to EBITDA, these adjustments are being treated as non-routine items and refer mainly to the provision of regulatory liabilities, assets impairment test result (including the goodwill), write-offs related to judicial deposits, among others. The net amount of these adjustments in 4Q17 is negative in R$ 3,496 million, generating a negative accounting EBITDA in Brazil of R$ 2,149 million.

In 4Q17, the Company’s consolidated investments, considering international operations, totaled R$ 1,840 million, up 35.1% from 4Q16 and 37.0% from 3Q17. Capex in Brazilian operations came to R$ 1,835 million, versus R$ 1,358 million in 4Q16 and R$ 1,339 million in 3Q17. In 2017, the Company increased its consolidated annual investments by 16.0% compared to 2016, totaling R$ 5,687 million, fueled by the 18.3% growth in investments in Brazilian operations, which totaled R$ 5,629 million in the period.

In 2017, Oi increased its investments, focusing in infrastructure and network core, as well as expanded its IT services. As a result, Oi was able to increase the robustness, quality and capacity of the network core, ensuring a more efficient operational performance and promoting consistent improvements in service quality and customer experience, thereby creating value for the business.

As a result of this strategy, network investments in Brazilian operations came to R$ 4,643 million in 2017, corresponding to around 82% of total investments, while investments in IT improvements accounted for 11% of the total.

Consolidated routine operational cash flow (routine EBITDA minus Capex) was a negative R$ 542 million in 4Q17, versus a positive R$ 364 million in 4Q16 and a positive R$ 259 million in 3Q17. Routine operational cash flow from Brazilian operations was a negative R$ 535 million in the quarter, versus a positive R$ 318 million in 4Q16 and a positive R$ 258 million in 3Q17. These declines were due to lower routine EBITDA in 4Q17 compared with 4Q16 and 3Q17, combined with the expansion of investments, in line with the Company’s Capex commitments.


 
 

OPERATING RESULTS

                                                                          

In 2017, consolidated routine operational cash flow came to R$ 557 million (-69.0% versus 2016), while routine operational cash flow from Brazilian operations totaled R$ 560 million in 2017 (-64.6% versus 2016). In 2017, the decline in operational cash flow was basically due to the increase of investments in the period.

 

Depreciation/Amortization

Depreciation and amortization expenses came to R$ 1,316 million in 4Q17 (-2.3% y.o.y. and +4.7% q.o.q.). In 2017, depreciation and amortization expenses fell 6.8% from 2016.

In 4Q17, Oi S.A. recorded a net financial income of R$ 1,854 million, versus net financial income of R$ 45 million in 3Q17 and a net financial expense of R$ 707 million in 4Q16.

The q.o.q performance was mainly due to the financial income recorded under "Other Financial Revenues / Expenses" of R$ 4,559 million, which refers to the adjustment to present value of the revision of the calculation of the provision for contingencies of administrative and judicial proceedings with ANATEL, calculated based on the best estimate of future cash outflow, according to the terms of payments agreed upon in the Judicial Reorganization Plan.

This financial income was partially offset by “Net FX Result”, which presented a financial expense due to the impact of the exchange rate in 4Q17, with the Real depreciating 4.42% against the Dollar and 6.05% against the Euro. As a result, the Company recorded a foreign exchange loss on debt denominated in foreign currencies. In addition, the increase in “Net Interest” expenses in the quarter were mainly due to the foreign exchange loss on interest on debt denominated in foreign currencies in the period, partially offset by lower CDI rate and IPCA inflation compared with 3Q17.

In the annual comparison, the higher net financial result also reflected the impact of the financial income generated in the revision of the criteria for calculating the provision of regulatory contingencies with ANATEL. This was partially offset by the depreciation of the Real against the Dollar (+1.50%) and the Euro (+15.44%) in 2017, as the Company did not have derivative financial instruments and was thus exposed to exchange rate fluctuations.

In 4Q17, the Company's operating earnings (loss) before the financial result and taxes (EBIT) was a loss of R$ 3,513 million, versus a loss of R$ 2,101 million in 4Q16 and earnings of R$ 348 million in 3Q17. The annual decline in EBIT was mostly due to non-recurring operating costs and expenses (Routine + Non-routine) in 4Q17 (-13.4% versus 4Q16), as well as the 7.8% decline in revenues in the period. In the sequential comparison, the absence of non-recurring costs and expenses in 3Q17 accounted for most of this variation, together with lower revenues in 4Q17 compared with 3Q17.

In 4Q17, the Company recorded income tax and social contribution expenses totaling R$ 2,257 million, versus expenses of R$ 2,000 million in 4Q16. Despite this negative impact, the positive financial result of R$ 1,854 million, compared with a financial expense of R$ 707 million in 4Q16, offset the effect of income tax and social contribution and Oi’s consolidated net loss fell R$ 892 million between 4Q16 and 4Q17. Compared with 3Q17, the reversal of consolidated net earnings into a consolidated net loss was due to the combination of higher EBIT and income tax and social contribution revenues in 3Q17, versus higher EBIT and expenses recorded with income tax and social contribution in 4Q17, which were partially offset by higher financial income in 4Q17 compared with the previous quarter.

Oi S.A. ended 4Q17 with consolidated gross debt of R$ 54,620 million, R$ 2,793 million more than in 3Q17. Compared with the end of 2016, consolidated gross debt increased R$ 6.429 million.

Both the sequential and the annual increases were mainly due to interest accrual and the depreciation of the Real against the Dollar and the Euro in both periods, as explained earlier. It is worth noting that, on December 20, 2017, as per the Material Fact disclosed on that date, the creditors of the Company and its subsidiaries Oi Móvel S.A., Telemar Norte Leste S.A., Copart 4 Participações S.A., Copart 5 Participações S.A., Portugal Telecom International Finance BV and Oi Brasil Holdings Coöperatief U.A. ("Oi Companies"), approved the Judicial Reorganization Plan, which had not been ratified and published by the end of 2017.  As a result, for accounting and disclosure purposes, the balances of loans and financing recorded in the table above do not reflect the new negotiated debt.

At the end of 4Q17, net debt stood at R$ 47,621 million, R$ 3,512 million more than in 3Q17. The increase in net debt was chiefly due to higher gross debt, as previously explained, combined with the 9.3% sequential reduction in cash, impacted by payments related to regulatory obligations in the period and payments to creditors as a result of the Creditors Settlement Program. Net debt grew R$ 7,279 million over 4Q16, due to the increase in gross debt, despite positive operational cash generation in the period.

Historical Reclassified Net Revenue and Revenue Generating Units (RGUs)

 

In 4Q16, the Company revised and changed the criteria for segmenting revenues and revenue generating units (RGUs) among the various business units (BUs), as it believes this new breakdown better reflects how the businesses are managed. Historical revenue and RGU figures were adjusted in order to reflect this change. The historical reclassified data is shown in the tables below:

Pursuant to this preliminary result, it appears Qualified Bondholders holding bonds in the aggregate principal amount of US$ 8,017,620,999.17 (or the equivalent in reais or euros) have made recovery elections with respect to the credits represented by their respective bonds as provided in Clauses 4.3.3.2 et seq. of the Plan. The potential dilution for existing shareholders resulting from the future distribution of PTIF Shares and the future issuance of new common shares and subscription warrants, in the context of the capital increase approved at the Board of Directors’ meeting held on March 5, 2018, would be approximately 71%. This percentage is subject to (i) the results of an Exchange Offer to be made to those Qualified Bondholders who have made valid recovery elections upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions set forth in the Plan, and (ii) the results of the exercise of the preemptive rights by Oi’s current shareholders, and assumes that all such credits will  
be paid pursuant to Clause 4.3.3.2 of the Plan and that all bonds with respect to which valid recovery elections have been made are surrendered in the Exchange Offer.

The accrued accounting effects that was recorded in the Company’s Shareholders’ Equity of 2017 was approximately R$ 21 billion. Of this amount, the main accounting items to was recognized are: (i) adjustment on the amount of the provision of deferred income tax recorded given projected future earnings; (ii) a write-off of assets related to judicial deposits; (iii) a write-off of the goodwill recorded due to the merger of Telemar Participações S.A. (“TmarPart”) with and into the Company; and (iv) revision of the criteria used to calculate the provisions for regulatory liabilities.

The aforementioned accounting effects resulted in negative shareholders’ equity as of December 31, 2017. The value of the shareholders’ equity will become positive in 2018 due to the expected adjustments in 2018 resulting from the recognition of the fair value of the Company’s new debt pursuant to the approved and confirmed Plan.
