Orri Hauksson, CEO:

"From the first two quarters of the year, revenues, EBITDA and EBIT are now increasing significantly. External cost increases have been rapid in recent seasons, and we have barely managed to keep income growth in line with increased expenses. The third quarter of this year was more profitable than before, which is often the case but that change is especially noticeable now, in addition to the fact that EBITDA grows slightly year-on-year, and EBITDA grows slightly year-on-year. We are still in the middle of the amortization process of our increased investments from the past two years, primarily due to contracts for popular TV content and new technologies with a short amortization period. In the long term, those investments will benefit the company, but have taken EBIT down significantly in recent quarters. The bottom has now been reached and EBIT has resumed its growth curve.

We have made numerous changes to our product offering during the year which seem to have met consumer needs well. Increasingly, Icelandic consumers are choosing to buy the complete range of products from their telecommunications and television service providers that suits them, instead of hand-selecting each service element. In the case of Síminn, the number of packages sold has increased by 10% during the year, but the number of individual products such as internet services has decreased. The number of mobile customers has increased rapidly recently, both within and outside the package, and roaming income has grown somewhat with the number of tourists.

Overall, rapid and varied income development is taking place due to internal and external changes, which in turn has produced more versions than before of the transactions that households have with Síminn. Some households have thus reduced their bill, while others have chosen larger packages and added products. Síminn's biggest benefit in this product development is that we now meet more diverse needs than before, and not least for younger target groups than before.

Síminn’s TV service is an example of a product that appeals more and more to younger audiences, but also to the solid core that has been in the business for a long time. Viewership has increased rapidly again, but only after the end of the pandemic did the amount of time people spent in front of the TV drop significantly. New viewing records are being set week after week, but the series about the band IceGuys, which has received an average of ten thousand plays per day since the first episode aired last October 6, is in the forefront. Foreign series, children's content and football also have their loyal viewers.

There is more of all the above ahead, especially high-quality Icelandic series until Christmas. Síminn is also involved in an exciting development project with HSÍ, which is the first of the Icelandic sports associations to sell access to the sport without intermediaries to viewers through Síminn's system. In this project, artificial intelligence plays a big role and is therefore extremely exciting for Síminn as a technology company. After the end of the year, on the other hand, it will be interesting to see how the production of television content develops in the world, but labor disputes in Hollywood could temporarily reduce the supply of new programs from this mainstay of the entertainment industry.

Financial technology and the use of Síminn's revolving card Léttkort are growing the fastest of all the company's product categories. Loans at the end of October will amount to almost ISK three billion on the residential market. Companies that do business with Síminn have, just like households, increased the number of services they acquire from Síminn. The electronic order book for purchasing authorizations is the fastest growing part of Síminn’s fintech services in the corporate market now. The system alone does not generate huge income for Síminn yet, but it is a good basis for further product offerings to companies.

Advertisements are also a rapidly growing product, as in our case they are based on viewing figures in real time from the target groups that the advertiser has set out to reach. Social media has long offered such precision online, while television has been a much less focused platform, until now.

There will be further news about the changed and strengthened revenue generation at Síminn. Mainly, such changes will increase the number of service lines offered by Síminn, but older products will also be discontinued. One can mention the analog telephone system, which has been useful to citizens for decades. From the beginning of next year, landline calls in Iceland will be based only on the internet unit IP. In addition to internal projects of that nature, it will be important in the coming months for Símann - as well as other Icelandic companies - that our economic system ends its turbulent journey on a favorable path again."
