VimpelCom highlights enhanced strategy for creating value and 2013 - 2015 objectives at Analyst & Investor Day

AMSTERDAM, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "VimpelCom Ltd." ("VimpelCom", "Company" or "Group") (NYSE: VIP), a leading global provider of telecommunications services, will today present its enhanced business strategy, the Value Agenda 2013 – 2015, at the Company's annual Analyst & Investor Day in London.

VimpelCom's objectives* for the period 2013 - 2015 are:

  • Revenue and EBITDA CAGR of around mid-single digit;
  • Net Debt / EBITDA below 2x by the end of 2015; and
  • Capex / Revenues, excluding licenses, below 15% in 2015.

The Company will indicate annual cash flow improvements of USD 2 billion from operations and of between USD 0.6 billion and USD 0.9 billion from finance optimization by the end of 2015. The Company will also confirm its intention to make dividend payments of at least USD 0.80 per common share per annum between 2012 and 2014, assuming not more than 1,628 million common shares issued and outstanding and barring unforeseen circumstances**.

Jo Lunder, Chief Executive Officer of VimpelCom, comments:

"We have made significant progress on a number of our objectives since announcing our first Value Agenda at our Analyst & Investor Day in November of 2011, including mid-single digit revenue and EBITDA growth and improvement in both Capex/revenue and leverage.  Our performance is driven by the successful execution of our strategy at both the Group level and across each of our Business Units.  In Russia, we have achieved improved operational performance. In Italy, we have driven continued market outperformance with solid margins. In Asia & Africa we have improved profitable growth. In Ukraine, we have successfully migrated to bundles. And in CIS, we have driven double digit growth."

"Looking ahead as we enhance our Value Agenda for 2013-2015, our focus remains on delivering excellence to our 212 million customers. We will be a mobile-focused company with a selective presence in fixed-line aimed at delivering improved net cash from operating activities.  We have implemented a passionate, performance oriented culture with a key focus on operations and execution at the business unit level. At the Group level, we remain a lean organization focused on value creation through performance management, portfolio management, financial structure optimization, and shared services such as roaming and procurement.  As a Group, VimpelCom offers a truly unique combination of mature, strong cash-generating companies and solid emerging growth opportunities."

During the event, VimpelCom's leadership team will provide a detailed strategy for the execution of its enhanced Value Agenda 2013-2015 at the Group level, as well as within its Business Units. This Value Agenda, which is focused on increasing Net Cash from Operating Activities, has four main pillars:
- Profitable Growth – driving revenue growth that leads to enhanced profitability by focusing on gaining share in mobile data revenues and capitalizing on areas such as Mobile Financial Services and partnerships with OTT players;
- Customer Excellence – creating a superior customer experience, optimizing distribution and developing superior pricing capabilities by offering smart pricing in bundles, among other strategies;
- Operational Excellence – focusing on cost efficiency programs throughout the entire organization; and
- Capital Efficiency – reducing Capex to revenues over time by deploying capital more efficiently through increased network sharing, continued business portfolio optimization and optimizing capital structure.
