For the financial year 2006 Telekom Austria Group expects operating revenues to rise by approximately 5% and adjusted EBITDA to increase by about 10%. Although depreciation and amortization charges are expected to be marginally higher due to the consolidation of Mobiltel, Telekom Austria anticipates that operating income and net income will rise by approximately 20%.

* Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairment charges, dividend income, equity in earnings of affiliates, other non-operating income/expense, minority interests and the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles. This equals operating income before depreciation, amortization and impairment charges.
