EUR at the end of the quarter. The highest and lowest share prices during the
reporting period were 6.40 EUR and 4.03 EUR respectively. The turnover for the

BUSINESS ACTIVITIES

Management commentary: The Group's sales revenues in the second quarter were
primarily impacted by regulations (European Union regulations applied on the
mobile sector) and the economic downturn (reduction of sales of goods and
changes in consumer behavior). Due to the efficiency plans in all subsidiaries
the decrease in EBITDA is smaller than in Sales and EBITDA margin has increased
year-to-year.

Sales revenues, operating costs, and profit
The Group's sales revenues in the third quarter of 2009 reached 85.7 million EUR
(3rd quarter 2008:
100.1 million EUR). The decrease in sales revenues resulted
primarily from the reduction in the sales volumes of telecommunications and IT
merchandise and a drop in revenues from call services and international
interconnection services.
The mobile communications segment's consolidated turnover for the third quarter
was 51.5 million EUR, decreasing 16% compared to the third quarter of 2008 (3rd
quarter 2008: 61.7 million EUR). The reason for the decrease in total revenues
was basically a reduction in revenues from call services caused by a drop in
retail prices, which was partially compensated by the growth of volumes for
mobile data communications and subcontracting services. During the third
quarter, a decrease was also experienced in revenues received from the retailing
and wholesaling of telecommunications merchandise compared to a year ago, which
was caused by changes in consumer behavior. In addition, the call minutes
initiated by the customers and the number of call minutes entering the EMT
network decreased by 4% compared to the third quarter of 2008, which resulted
from the customers' wish to limit consumption.
By the end of the third quarter of 2009, the following applied to the EMT client
base: the number of contractual clients had not decreased and remained at 484
thousand; since the entire market had contracted, the number of pre-paid card
users decreased by 33 thousand, declining to 260 thousand. EMT assesses its
market share of active SIM cards to be 47%. The estimated penetration of active
cards in Estonia is 119%.
EMT successfully continued to offer its new MinuEMT (MyEMT) mobile and Internet
package, whereby customers can choose the volumes of the three basic mobile
communications - calls, text messages, and Internet - that he or she wishes to
use. The MinuEMT package includes very favorable prices and personalized
discounts based on the customers' history with EMT. The sale of MinuEMT services
has progressed well and a total of 45 thousand private and business clients have
subscribed.
Based on a 26 March 2009 decision by the Competition Board, as of 1 July 2009, a
maximum interconnection tariff of 0.087 EUR per minute, instead of 0.088 EUR per
minute, came into force for AS EMT, Elisa Eesti AS and Tele2 Eesti AS, as well
as ProGroup Holding OÜ. The maximum rate for interconnection fees to be
established for the periods 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011 and 1 July 2011 to 30
June 2012 will be announced by the Competition Board at least 2 months before
the beginning of the corresponding period, but pursuant to the decision, the
decrease or increase in the interconnection fees to be applied shall not be more
than 10%.
As of 1 July 2009, the following price obligations, which apply to the
Community's internal roaming services (euro tariffs), came into force for mobile
communications operators in the European member states based on Regulation no.
544/2009 of the European Parliament and Council dated 18 June 2009 (which
amended
EU Regulation no. 717/2007 that deals with roaming in public mobile
phone networks within the borders of the Community): the call minute prices
decreased at both the wholesale (0.26 EUR per minute) and retail level
(outgoing calls 0.43 EUR per minute, incoming calls 0.19 EUR per minute);
maximum fees were implemented for SMS texting (wholesale 0.04 EUR and retail
0.11 EUR), as well as wholesale prices for data communications services (1
EUR/1MB). In addition, as of 1 July 2009, the fees for roaming calls will be
calculated by the second (except during the first 30 seconds of the call
initiation fee).
The broadband services segment's consolidated turnover reached 49.9 million EUR
in the third quarter. Compared to the same period of the previous year, the
decrease of revenues in the broadband services segment totaled 12%. The decrease
in turnover was related primarily to a reduction in the sales volumes of
telecommunications and IT goods as well as a reduction in minute volumes of call
services and international interconnections services. As a result of the drop in
volumes, retail sales revenues decreased by 36%, and the revenues earned from
end consumers for domestic call services decreased by 15%, due to the general
drop in minute volumes in the Estonian market. The turnover for international
call services decreased by 24%, which is primarily related to a reduction in the
minute volumes for international calls initiated from mobile networks. Due to
the drop in the minute volumes for international call transit, the turnover for
international interconnection services decreased in the third quarter by 24%
compared to the previous year. At the same time, the revenues earned from the
monthly fees for triple-play and data communications solutions increased by 8%
compared to the previous year.
As the result of successful marketing campaigns, the number of Elion IP and
cable-TV customers increased by 6,000 in the third quarter reaching 94.4
thousand as of 30 September (30 September 2008: 75.4 thousand). Elion assesses
that the company's market share in the cable broadcast market increased by 1% in
the third quarter to 30% at the end of September (30 September 2008: 26%).
As of 1 October, Elion digital TV's basic Estonian and Slavic packages were
supplemented by 20 channels, of which four are totally new channels (Discovery
Investigation, Nat Geo Music, Life TV, and RTV). The other 16 channels that were
added to the basic packages are popular channels transferred from theme
packages, which were previously available for an additional fee.
At the end of September, Elion introduced a hyper-fast Internet service, which
has quickly become popular among the customers. During the first week, more than
200 users subscribed to the service and 25,000 people checked on the
availability of the service in their homes. Elion's hyper-fast Internet, with a
monthly fee of
6.33 EUR, provides download speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s and
upload speeds of up to 20 Mbit/s. This additional
service is available to
Kodulahenduse customers, whose current Internet download speeds are up to 12
Mbit/s,
and in whose apartment buildings a fiber-optic network has been
installed. Currently, there are 100,000 households in apartment buildings with
the technical requirements for Elion's hyper-fast Internet in all of Estonia's
largest cities.
The total number of Elion's customers with permanent Internet connection
increased by 1,700 connections during the quarter, reaching 176.8 thousand by
the end of September (30 September 2008: 171.9 thousand). The company's
assessment is that Elion's market share of the permanent Internet connection
market in Estonia has not changed, and continues to be 54%.
By the end of the third quarter, the number of Elion's total means of
communication totaled 460 thousand
(30 September 2008: 471 thousand
interfaces). The reduction in the number of total means on communication
resulted from an expected reduction in the number of telephone connections in
the private and business segments, as well as a reduction in the number of pay
phones throughout Estonia.
Elion assesses its market share for call minutes initiated in the fixed network
to be 79% (September 2008: 80%). The market share for local call minutes is 81%
(September 2008: 82%), 68% for international calls (September 2008: 67%) and 70%
for call minutes made to mobile phones (September 2008: 71%).
In the telecommunications and IT goods market, Elion increased its market share
in the third quarter in the field of audio-video goods from 12.5% to 16.8%.
Despite very competitive prices, Elion was able to maintain its position as the
market leader in the field of IT goods (a market share along with AS EMT, its
affiliated company, of 29%).
In August, the Competition Board completed its proceeding regarding the fees
established for Elion's fixed line services and rental of copper pairs, by
acknowledging their legality.
The IT services segment's sales revenues in the third quarter of 2009 reached
3.6 million EUR (3rd quarter 2008: 4.7 million EUR). Compared to the same period
in the previous year, the sales revenues decreased by 23%, whereas the sales
revenues for IT merchandise decreased by 58%; the sales revenues for
project-based services increased by 48%; and the sales revenues for permanent
services decreased by 6%. The increase in revenues from project sales compared
to last year was affected by the IT Koolituskeskuse OÜ Group's data being
recognized in the consolidated sales revenues of the IT services segment in
2009, while on the other hand, project sales revenues decreased in connection
with the sale of the software development and financial software business to AS
Helmes at the end of June 2009. If we examine this field of activity separately,
the sales revenues for services in the field of document management and
archiving increased by 8% and the sales revenues for IT training and
consultation decreased by 21% compared to the third quarter of last year.
In the third quarter, the general downward trend continued in the IT market.
Numerous procurements have been postponed and the results of completed
procurements have been cancelled. A certain positive impact can be felt from the
activation of EU Structural Fund financing. At the same time, the wave of
company bankruptcies and liquidations is gathering speed. Yet, the volume of
doubtful receivables in the IT services segment has remained at the same level
compared to the end of the second quarter of this year.
The turnover of merchandise sales for infrastructure solutions was significantly
lower for the third quarter than for the same period of the previous year (0.7
million EUR vs. 1.8 million EUR). The reason is the general decline in the IT
market. Currently, all companies in the IT sector that deal with the sale of
merchandise are noticing the same downward trend. The summer period, which was
accompanied by a decrease in turnover (23%) compared to the second quarter, also
had an impact.
In the project business, several important contracts were signed in the third
quarter with the ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) and ISKE
(a three-level baseline protection system for information systems) fields of
activity, including projects to introduce IncidentMonitor software. Continuing
work on document management projects is progressing with several customers.
Several important service contracts were concluded in the field of document
management (ERGO Insurance, Border Guard Administration, etc.).
In the field of permanent services, the company has focused on export to Russia
in the third quarter, which resulted in several new contracts for permanent
services being signed. In the third quarter, an equipment
hosting contact was
also concluded with Telefonica Wholesale Services. In addition AS MicroLink
Eesti applied for export supports from Enterprise Estonia and received a
positive answer.
The operating costs of the Eesti Telekom Group decreased by 15% in the third
quarter of 2009 compared to the same period in 2008, reaching 51.3 million EUR
(3rd quarter 2008: 60.1 million EUR).
The operating costs in the mobile communications segment decreased by 12%
compared to the third quarter of 2008, reaching 33.0 million EUR (3rd quarter
2008: 37.4 million EUR). The greatest decrease was in operating costs related to
retailing and wholesaling, which corresponds to the drop in the turnover from
merchandise sales. A decrease was also experienced in interconnection costs
based on a slight drop in call volumes and a small price decrease and also in
operating costs resulted from the efficiency projects.
The operating costs in the broadband services segment decreased during the last
quarter by 15% compared to the same period in 2008, reaching 34.7 million EUR
(3rd quarter 2008: 40.8 million EUR). Most of the reduction in operating costs
resulted from a drop in direct sales costs, which was related to decreases in
retail sales volumes, international interconnection services, and call minute
volumes. A significant impact on the decrease in operating costs also resulted
from the efficiency projects initiated last year, which are related to
reductions in personnel costs, maintenance costs of buildings and network
resources, transport costs, office costs and marketing costs.
The operating costs in the IT services segment decreased in the third quarter by
37% reaching 2.9 million EUR (3rd quarter 2008: 4.6 million EUR). The operating
costs for the quarter were affected on the one hand by almost 0.3 million EUR of
increased costs that accompanied the consolidation of the IT Koolituskeskus
(Training Center), and on the other hand, by the fact that the costs related to
the software development and financial software business that was sold at the
end of June are not included in this year's third quarter. Also, the lower sales
turnovers were accompanied by significantly lower purchasing costs for
merchandise and both of the Group's companies have succeeded in reducing other
operating costs (including a reduction of 37% in the other operating costs of
MicroLink Eesti as an independent company and 61% by the IT Koolituskeskus).
The Eesti Telekom Group EBITDA decreased in the third quarter of 2009 by 14%
compared to the same period in the previous year, reaching 34.6 million EUR (3rd
quarter 2008: 40.2 million EUR). The EBITDA in the mobile communications
services segment decreased by 24% in the third quarter compared to the same
period of last year. In the third quarter, the EBITDA for the broadband segment
has decreased by 3% compared to the same period of last year, reaching 15.4
million EUR (3rd quarter 2008: 15.8 million EUR). The EBITDA for the IT services
segment in the third quarter of 2009 was 0.8 million EUR (3rd quarter 2008: 0.1
million EUR). The Group's EBITDA margin in the third quarter of 2009 was 40.4%,
which was slightly higher from the corresponding margin for the same period of

of the GSM network, a developmental priority was the implementation of
technologies to support high-speed mobile data communications. The majority of
data communications usage by EMT customers occurs in the
3G network, which
enables the use of high-quality and rapid Internet connections at speeds
approaching those of ADSL at conveniently manageable prices. Since EMT is the
only operator in Estonia that provides EDGE data communications throughout its
GSM coverage area, then investments in new base stations is primarily directed
at expanding external and internal 3G coverage in cities and towns. At the same
time, the constant improvement of the GSM network continued. Investments into
fixed assets in the broadband services segment totaled 12.4 million EUR (9
months of 2008: 16.7 million EUR). The principal part of the capital investments
was related to the development of network resources (core and fiber-optic cable
networks), the improvement and expansion of the availability of the
triple-service packages, and the fulfillment of regulation-based requirements.
In the first nine months of 2009, the IT services segment invested 0.4 million
EUR into fixed assets (9 months of 2008: 0.9 million EUR).
Under the leadership of the Estonian Association of Information Technology and
Telecommunications Companies (ITL), the Ministry of Economic Affairs and
Communication and the telecommunications companies have agreed to develop a 100
Mbit/s capacity Internet network by 2015. The name of the project for the
development of a new generation Internet network is EstWin. During the first
stage of the EstWin project, a basic communications network comprising 6,640
kilometers of fiber-optic cable and 1,400 network connection locations will be
installed. In the second stage of the project, the operators will connect an
access network for consumers to the basic network. The estimated cost of the
entire project is up to 383.5 million EUR, with the government planning to use
95.9 million EUR from various European structural funds to cover the
government's obligations for the development of the basic network. In order to
realize the EstWin project, the largest companies in the information technology
and telecommunications sector founded the Estonian Broadband Development
Foundation or ELA Foundation in the third quarter, for the purpose of developing
the basic infrastructure required for the installation of a new generation
broadband network in Estonia's rural areas by end of 2015. The founders of the
ELA Foundation include Elion, EMT, Elisa, Tele2, Televõrk, Levira, Eltel,
and
Ericsson. Kalev Reiljan, Elion's Technology Director, was elected Chairman of
the ELA Foundation Supervisory Board.
The Eesti Telekom Group cash flow used in financing activities totaled 93.1
million EUR in the first nine months, of which 92.6 million EUR was used to pay
dividends to the AS Eesti Telekom shareholders
(9 months of 2008: 93.1 million
EUR and 92.6 million EUR respectively) and 0.4 million EUR was paid to minority
shareholders (Serenda Invest OÜ minority shareholders) (9 months of 2008: 0.5
million EUR).
