Strong 2015 For Maxis

  • Customers attracted to leading data network experience and worry-free usage
  • No. 1 in 4G LTE, coverage at 71% of population, widest in the country
  • Steady Q4 in price-focused, competitive environment


Highlights:

Year-on-year (yoy):

  • Service revenue grew 3.8% to RM8,539 million from RM8,229 million a year ago, driven by solid prepaid and improved core postpaid performance
  • Solid prepaid revenue growth; up 6.2% yoy to RM4,184 million from RM3,940 million on the back of rising data usage and bigger share in the migrant segment
  • Core postpaid revenue grew 2.7% to RM3,657 million from RM3,560 million - strong adoption of MaxisONE plan continued with 623k customers on board, resulting in stable ARPU and making postpaid revenue relatively insensitive to the decline in voice and SMS

  • Profit After Tax (PAT) grew to RM1,960 million from RM1,943 million, after adjusting for accelerated depreciation due to network modernisation as well as unrealised forex losses and reversal of contract obligation
  • Declared a fourth interim dividend of five sen per share, bringing full year pay-out to 20 sen per share

 

Q4 2015 against Q4 2014:

  • Service revenue grew 3.2% to RM2,160 million from RM2,094 million despite price-focused competition
  • Solid EBITDA excluding unrealised forex impact, at RM1,121 million against RM1,034 million
  • PAT grew 7.2% to RM477 million as compared to RM445 million

Comment by Morten Lundal, Chief Executive Officer, Maxis Berhad:

“2015 was a winning year for us. We grew both in revenues and profits, year on year, and won market shares. Our modernised network now covers nearly 90% of population while our 4G LTE network has more than doubled to 71% of population coverage, making us the leader with the fastest and widest in the country. All in all, our intense focus on unmatched customer experience and to provide the best network for data is rewarded with happier customers. We have the highest customer satisfaction we have ever seen in various channels and our customer complaint level is now at its lowest in a decade. These are indeed proud achievements for us. The first phase of our transformation of becoming a high performing mobile company is more or less done. Now we have a strong foundation to push ahead with the second phase of our transformation of becoming the preferred choice for digital experience seekers. I am truly positive to what lies ahead of us and the increased empowerment we could offer individuals, homes and organisations.”
