Hutchison Telecom Reports First Quarter Unaudited Key Perfor


HONG KONG, May 8 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hutchison Telecommunications International Limited ("Hutchison Telecom"; "the Group"; SEHK: 2332; NYSE: HTX;) today announced its unaudited key performance indicators and consolidated net profit attributable to equity holders for the quarter ended 31 March 2007.

The Group continued to see a growth trend in the customer base across all its operations. Excluding India, the total customer base grew to 6.6 million during the quarter, up from approximately 6.3 million at the end of the previous quarter and 5.7 million at the same time last year. The Group's operations in Sri Lanka and Ghana more than doubled their respective customer base over the last year whilst both Hong Kong and Israeli operations reported continued growth in their 3G customer base to over 818,000 and 333,000 respectively at the end of the quarter.

The Group also reported first quarter consolidated net profit attributable to equity holders of HK$220 million.

During the quarter the Group launched service in both Vietnam and Indonesia, two high growth markets with low mobile penetration and favourable demographics and economics. The operations enjoyed successful launches and are marketing voice and data services that have been well received and are gaining traction in both markets.

Hutchison Telecom announced on 12 February that it had entered into an agreement to sell its interest in the Hutchison Essar Group to Vodafone. Upon the completion of the transaction, Hutchison Telecom will become one of the best capitalised telecom companies in the region, which will put it in a strong position to take advantage of new business opportunities as they arise.

Dennis Lui, Chief Executive Officer of Hutchison Telecom said: "Hutchison Telecom has enjoyed an eventful and successful first quarter of 2007. The launch of service in both Indonesia and Vietnam was well received and our existing operations have delivered another quarter of solid growth, resulting in a set of encouraging operational data. We expect to close the transaction with Vodafone, after which we will be one of the best capitalised and most strategically positioned telecom companies in Asia. "
