15 November 2019 Despite all the hustle in the telecom space, BHARTI surprised with 7% QoQ EBITDA growth to INR88.6b (10% beat without adjusting for Ind-AS 116 impact). Particularly, India mobile EBITDA trended higher (+3% QoQ) for the third consecutive quarter, led by stable domestic wireless revenue (+1% QoQ) despite seasonal weakness. SG&A; costs were down INR6b in the quarter. Moreover, net finance cost declined 9% QoQ to INR29.1b, led by the recent deleveraging efforts. The big dampener this quarter was INR307b exceptional charge toward AGR liability (license fee/SUC) and Africa pre-IPO investor indemnity, which led to a net loss of INR228.3b. loss was at INR11.2b versus our estimate of a net loss of INR14b. Moderating capex intensity down nearly 40% from FY19 to a meager INR88.4b in 1HFY20 (20% below our estimate) coupled with declining debt (excluding AGR liability) led to a reduction in interest cost.

24 September 2019 The impact from downtrading and the minimum recharge plans has largely played out in the subscriber and ARPU trends. Notably, even post the roll out of the minimum recharge program, the company has retained 50-60m of the total 100-120m low-ARPU (i.e. INR10-15) subscribers, which has driven a 3-4x rise in ARPUs. This apart, tariff upgrades (some minor tweaks in price plans/validity) and Airtel Thanks are contributing to incremental ARPUs. Even though the second quarter is seasonally weak, BHARTI is likely to benefit from TTSL merger revenue contribution and network cost efficiencies (incremental EBITDA margin at 70%). In contrast to fears, the company has witnessed only limited churn post RJios recent Jio fiber launch (35-40% of recent plan renewals were annual). In fact, the recently launched Xstream website and app (rebranded version of Airtel Thanks) offer wide content, which should further increase FTTH subscriber stickiness.

Bharti Airtel (Bharti) seemed to have ticked all the right boxes, notwithstanding continued challenges on pricing in the industry. We note that Q4FY19 marked a return of Indian wireless growth (on a like-to-like basis) after almost 12 quarters, clearly signifying wireless revenue has finally stabilised. The recent rights issue, Africa stake sale and proposed IPO are likely to provide the interim cash flow support as well as leverage breather, till the industry pricing improves from here. With comfortable leverage levels, relative to peers, post rights issue and Africa monetisation, Airtel...
