This excerpt taken from the MTA 6-K filed Feb 24, 2009.
EBITDA was up by 10.0% to HUF 268.4 bn, with an EBITDA margin of 39.9%. Group EBITDA excluding investigation-related costs, severance payments and accruals increased by 1.9% year-on-year. (Investigation-related costs came to HUF 5.4 bn in 2008 against HUF 5.7 bn in 2007; severance payments and accruals were HUF 8.5 bn in 2008, and, including a portion attributable to contractual termination expense of key managers, reached HUF 27.5 bn in 2007.) EBITDA without these special influences increased by 1.9% and EBITDA margin was 41.9% in 2008 compared to 40.9% in 2007. The savings generated from the headcount reduction are reflected in the improved profitability, which was also helped by the reversal of provisions related to fixed to mobile traffic revenues in the amount of HUF 8.5 bn in the second quarter of 2008.


·                  Profit attributable to equity holders of the company (net income) increased by 54.6%, from HUF 60.2bn (EUR 239.4 m) to HUF 93.0 bn (EUR 370.2 m). Besides higher EBITDA, the increase was also due to lower depreciation and amortization expenses in 2008. Depreciation expenses decreased due to the extension of the useful life of certain network assets during 2008.
