The Telekom Slovenije Group will withstand the forecast of a continuing decline in revenues through a range of new, superior quality services, by reducing all types of costs, by searching for synergies between associated companies and through the consolidation of individual markets. The Strategic Business Plan of the Telekom Slovenije Group for the period 2015 to 2019 defines the Group’s future development and strategic policies. A summary is published on the Company’s website.
Key strategic policies of the Telekom Slovenije Group for the period 2015 to 2019
- Consolidation on individual markets
The Telekom Slovenije Group’s strategy is to be the leader in Slovenia and in terms of market share a profitable alternative operator on markets outside of Slovenia.
- Maintaining the number of users in Slovenia
Like the majority of incumbent operators in Europe, Telekom Slovenije is faced with a declining number of users as the result of stiffer competition and regulation. We will maintain the number of users while maintaining the highest possible level of profitability: through cross-sales of services, the development of new services and new subscriber models, through differentiation and a range of exclusive content, by improving the user experience, by providing standardised cloud computing services. We will also offer business users a comprehensive range of ICT services that will focus on individual vertical markets.
- New revenue sources at Telekom Slovenije
The Group will search for opportunities for growth in revenues in the following areas: mobility (e-call service in the event of a traffic accident and vehicle telematics), connected home services (safe and secure home), security (security ecosystems), financial services, energy and healthcare.
- Growth in number of users and EBI TDA in South-Eastern Europe
All subsidiaries in South-Eastern Europe will continue to optimise costs, which will have a positive impact on EBITDA. Future growth in the latter will derive primarily from growth in the scope of operations. In Kosovo, Ipko will increase the number of mobile users and market share by exploiting the opportunities presented by the 3G network, through the expansion of geographical coverage and by offering services that will continue to be the best on the market.
- Financial stability
The Telekom Slovenije Group will achieve financial stability by ensuring a long-term sustainable structure of financing, by fulfilling financial commitments in loan agreements, through the effective management of working capital, by investing cash in line with risk criteria for investments, and by maintaining an appropriate level of liquidity reserves.
- Restructuring of personnel
The Group will ensure the optimal number of employees, taking into account the needs of the work process at
individual companies, and will optimise labour costs.
Quality is the primary advantage of the services provided to users by Telekom Slovenije Group companies. We will continue to ensure continued development and provide a range of the most state-of-the-art services and solutions.
- Social responsibility
The Telekom Slovenije Group actively identifies opportunities where it can contribute to the development of the social and economic environment through its knowledge and financial and other sources. The principles of sustainable development will continue to be built into our operations, products, services and content, while we will responsibly manage the economic, social and environmental impacts of our operations.
