Kyivstar remains the clear market leader in a volatile and challenging economic and political market. The Company has been able to improve churn, grow its customer base and increase service revenue YoY in 1Q15.

Total revenue increased 5% YoY to UAH 3.1 billion, driven by growth in mobile service revenue, in part offset by declining fixed-line service revenue. Mobile service revenue grew 7% YoY to UAH 2.9 billion as a result of increased international incoming revenue, positively impacted by FOREX, as well as strong growth of mobile data revenue of 16% YoY to UAH 281 million. The growth in mobile data revenue was driven by increasing smartphone penetration, now at 25%, new data offers and the implementation of a regional approach in daily data usage pricing. Mobile voice, guest roaming, VAS and messaging revenue declined due to more conservative customer spending behavior and lower rates of tourism in Ukraine, as well as the negative impact from switching off the network in Crimea in August 2014.

Kyivstar´s mobile customer base increased 2% YoY to 26.1 million, driven by YoY churn improvement and good customer acquisition primarily due to the Company’s high quality and stable mobile network. The Company has reported 4 consecutive quarters of churn improvement, showing a decline of 7 percentage points YoY to a healthy annualized level of 22%. Mobile ARPU increased 4% YoY to UAH 36.
