StarHub Reports 2011 First Quarter Results, Net Profit Jumped 62%

It seems that StarHub is growing, that is based on the numbers they released. With the launch of Next Gen NBN, StarHub now offers two options for high-speed broadband access – MaxOnline for cable broadband and MaxInfinity for fibre broadband.

StarHubStarHub Ltd announced its results for the quarter ended 31 March 2011. Total operating revenue improved to S$558 million while service revenue was higher at S$531 million. The Group’s EBITDA grew 35% to S$160 million from S$118 million previously. Profit before taxation was at S$86 million year-on-year (YoY) and net profit after tax grew 62% to S$69 million. Free cash flow at S$132 million was 10% higher compared to last year’s S$120 million. Cash capital expenditure was 15% lower at S$41 million compared to the same period last year.

  • Net Profit After Tax Jumped 62% To S$69 Million
  • EBITDA Grew 35% To S$160 Million
  • Interim Quarterly Dividend Of 5.0 Cents Per Share

Financial and Business Highlights

Fixed Network services revenue registered the highest growth for the quarter at 5% YoY. This was followed by Mobile revenue at 3%. In terms of total revenue mix, Mobile continued to be the major contributor at 53%. Pay TV, Broadband, Fixed Network Services and Sales of Equipment contributed 16%, 11%, 15% and 5% respectively to the revenue mix.

  • Mobile revenue increased 3% to S$296 million, contributed mainly by a higher post-paid subscriber base and a higher post-paid ARPU. Post-paid mobile services revenue grew 5% to S$231 million, accounting for 78% of the Mobile revenue mix. Post-paid ARPU increased S$1 to S$72, while pre-paid ARPU decreased S$3 to S$20.
  • Pay TV revenue decreased 10% to S$92 million. The lower revenue was mainly due to the reduction in the Sports group’s monthly subscription price from S$25 to S$12 in June 2010 and a lower sports subscriber base post BPL. This also resulted in a lower Pay TV ARPU YoY at S$49. Customer base increased to 542,000 and the churn rate remained low at 1.1%.
  • Broadband revenue grew to S$60 million, compared to a year ago. For the quarter, the S$45 ARPU was primarily due to the higher mix of customers on lower speed price plans and promotional offers. The MaxOnline customer base increased 4% to 425,000.
  • Fixed Network revenue increased 5% to S$84 million YoY due to higher revenue from both Data & Internet and Voice services. Data & Internet services revenue, which contributes 84% to the Fixed Network revenue mix, grew to S$70 million, while Voice services revenue grew to S$13 million YoY. This was primarily due to higher subscription of local voice services and increased interconnection revenue from international carriers.
  • The quarter’s marketing initiatives continued to encourage customers to take up multi-services. As a result, the percentage of total Hubbing households that subscribed to any two or more StarHub services went up to 56% YoY. Triple-service households grew to 203,000 from a year ago.

“We have delivered a good set of results in the first quarter of 2011 against the same quarter in 2010,” said Mr Neil Montefiore, CEO of StarHub. “The smartphone revolution continues with over 70% of our post-paid customers using them. Despite intense competition, we are very pleased with the growth in our pay TV base. Our Fixed Network business has also put up a strong performance with the higher take-up of Data & Internet services. As the Next Gen NBN continues to roll out, we see opportunities for growth, particularly in the corporate sector.”

Outlook for FY2011

Based on the current outlook, we maintain our Group’s 2011 operating revenue growth YoY to be in the single digit range and Group EBITDA margin as a percentage of service revenue to be about 30%. The total capex payments in 2011 are expected not to exceed 13% of operating revenue. In view of the projected profitability and cash flow in 2011, cash dividend payout remains at 5 cents per ordinary share per quarter.

Dividend

Following the close of the Company’s Annual General Meeting on 15 April 2011, the Company declared a final dividend of 5 cents per share on a one-tier tax exempt basis in respect of the financial year ended 31 December 2010. The dividend will be paid on 6 May 2011.

The Company declares an interim dividend of 5 cents per ordinary share for 1Q-2011.

    Ihre Möse ist ausgeleiert, ihre Schenkel und ihr Gesicht sind runzlig, die Haare sind grau – auch der Muschi, wenn du nicht eine rasierte alte Muschi vor dir hast -, und beim Blowjob können viele der Frauen über 60 vorher das Gebiss heraus nehmen, damit dein Schwanz es ihrem Mund auch richtig schön kuschlig weich hat.

      Wonder if it would be possible to round up some crime scene photos of raped and murdered women and publish them with the caption, &q9o&;Shouldnt#3u;t these women have been allowed to carry a gun?"
