CEO comment:
"We noted promising financial indications during Q2 in what remain challenging market conditions. This quarter's record customer intake of 1,511, 000 again reflects sustainable interest in our services and provides a good basis for earnings growth in the second half of the year. It also demonstrates that our company enjoys diversified growth: Tele2 Kazakhstan has now surpassed Tele2 Russia when it comes to the rate of increase of customers. Our strong financial position means that we are able to pursue our growth strategies without compromising service. We continue to exploit the opportunities in the widespread move from voice to data in a profitable manner. Maintaining our focus on developing an ever more valuable business model for data services is central to strategy. Consequently, we will manage the migration from prepaid to postpaid services with innovative pricing models designed to keep and develop our loyal customer base."

Financial highlights
Net sales amounted to SEK 11,064 (10,078) million corresponding to a growth of 10 percent in the quarter. EBITDA in Q2 2012 amounted to SEK 2,715 (2,809) million, equivalent to an EBITDA margin of 25 (28) percent.

Strong customer intake in market area Russia
In Q2 2012, Tele2 Russia added 693,000 (720,000) customers leading to a total customer base of 21.6 (19.7) million. EBITDA amounted to SEK 1,199 (1,115) million, equivalent to an EBITDA margin of 37 (39) percent.

Sustained mobile revenue growth in market area Nordic
Mobile revenue in Sweden grew by 6 percent, as customer demand for smartphones and data services increased further during the quarter. This trend was enhanced by a temporary marketing campaign during the months of March and April. As a result of increased marketing spend, the EBITDA margin was negatively affected. Tele2 Norway performed well during the quarter, with increased focus on moving traffic on to its own network, leading to robust EBITDA margin development.

Significant operational progress in market area Central Europe & Eurasia
During the quarter, Tele2 Kazakhstan completed the roll-out and commercial launch in the country, resulting in a customer intake of 759,000 (355,000). The total customer base amounted to 2.5 (0.7) million. The Baltic countries drove further cost cutting in the quarter, maintaining their firm EBITDA margin development.

Robust margin development in market area Western Europe
Tele2 Netherlands maintained a stable EBITDA margin compared to same period last year, despite tough market conditions in the consumer and business segments. Both Tele2 Austria and Tele2 Germany continued their stable operational development thanks to a combination of innovative product offers and tight cost control.
