MOSCOW, Russia (March 10, 2005) — Golden Telecom, Inc. (“Golden Telecom” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: “GLDN”), a leading facilities-based provider of integrated telecommunications and Internet services in major population centers throughout Russia and other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (“CIS”), today announced its financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2004. 

 

During the financial year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2004, Golden Telecom demonstrated growth in each of its lines of business including continued growth in consolidated revenues, operating income, and net income.  The Company’s consolidated revenues rose 62% to $584.0 million compared to $360.5 million in the financial year ended December 31, 2003.  Compared to 2003, Golden Telecom’s net income rose 17% in 2004 to $64.8 million from $55.4 million in 2003.  In the fourth quarter of 2004, consolidated revenues were $159.2 million, which was an increase of 43% from $111.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2003.  Additionally, operating income in the fourth quarter of 2004 was $23.4 million, an increase of 39% from $16.8 million in the same quarter in 2003.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Alexander Vinogradov, Chief Executive Officer and President of Golden Telecom, said, “We are extremely pleased with our results in 2004.  It was a great year for Golden Telecom with continued growth across the board in revenues, operating income, and net income increases over last year. Despite being faced with challenges that spanned from the integration of recently acquired companies to the continued changes in the regulatory and telecommunications environment in Russia and Ukraine, we were able to remain focused on growing our various lines of business, enhancing customer service, and concluding the integration of Comincom and Combellga, our largest acquisition to date. As of December 1, 2004, the legal integration has been completed and we will continue to focus on achieving synergies from our newly combined operations.” 

 

Mr. Vinogradov went on to add that, “Besides the increase in revenues, operating income, and net income in 2004, there were other notable achievements.  In September 2004, the Company celebrated the five-year anniversary of its IPO and direct listing on the NASDAQ National Market in the United States.  Also, in 2004, Golden Telecom paid its first dividend in its history to shareholders.  Even after capital and operating expenditures, three acquisitions, and payment of four dividends totaling $29 million, we ended the year with a robust cash balance and only $200,000 of long-term debt.  Furthermore, we are fortunate to have the addition of three experienced and skilled Senior Vice-Presidents to our management team and, as a result, feel well positioned to achieve our objectives going forward.”

Financial Performance in 2004 and Operations:

 

In 2004, all of our lines-of-businesses continued to benefit from strong macroeconomic factors exhibited in the markets in which we operate.  Russia experienced record foreign currency inflows as a result of strong commodity prices and continuing high demand for industrial and consumer goods.  In addition, Russia saw its credit rating upgraded to investment grade by Standard & Poor’s and Fitch Ratings.  Moody’s maintained its investment grade rating.  Ukraine continued to benefit from a strong economy as demonstrated by its robust real GDP growth of 12% in 2004, up from 9.4% in 2003.

In Business and Corporate Services, our largest line-of-business, year on year revenues increased to $324.8 million from $188.9 million in 2003, an increase of 72%.  The total number of contracts in the Business and Corporate Services segment increased from 97,639 at year-end 2003 to 162,728 contracts at year-end 2004, an increase of 67%.  Revenues increased year-on-year in our largest line of business due to the integration of Comincom and Combellga into Golden Telecom and the continuing demand for our wireline telecommunication solutions from a large number of existing and new corporate customers across the geographic markets. 

 

In the Carrier and Operator Services line-of-business, year-on-year revenues increased to $198.9 million from $128.5 million in 2003, an increase of 55%.  The increase is mainly due to higher traffic volumes from our existing customer base as we continue to expand the number of available destinations where we land our traffic.  As stated previously, wholesale margins continue to trend downward as demonstrated by a decline in operating margin in this segment from 20.7% in 2003 to 14.1% in same period in 2004.  Total customer contracts increased from 900 contracts at year-end 2003 to 1,618 contracts at year-end 2004, an increase of 80%. 

 

In the Consumer Internet line-of-business, year-on-year revenues increased to $45.5 million from $30.8 million in 2003, an increase of 48%.  The number of dial-up internet access subscribers grew from 363,545 at year-end 2003 to 413,351 at year-end 2004, an increase of 14%, while average monthly revenue per subscriber increased from $8.39 in 2003 to $9.03 in 2004, an increase of 8%.  The growth in subscribers in this business is attributable mainly to increased demand for Internet services in Russia.  

 

In the Mobile line-of-business in Ukraine, year-on-year revenues increased to $15.8 million from $13.9 million, an increase of 14%.  The number of total active cellular subscribers grew from 40,026 at year-end 2003 to 57,490 year-end subscribers in 2004, an increase of 44%.  This growth in 2004 was mostly driven by more subscribers using our prepaid calling plans. 

 

The Company reported an increase in points of presence at year-end 2004 and the total customers and contracts in each line-of-business increased from the third quarter of 2004 as well as from the end of 2003.  The following table summarizes some key Company and customer statistics:

Dividends:

 

In February 2005, the Board of Directors declared a first quarter dividend of $0.20 per share to shareholders of record as of March 17, 2005, and payable on March 31, 2005.  With regard to cash flow and the Company’s balance sheet Senior Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Brian Rich, added, “Golden Telecom continues to maintain a healthy cash balance.  In 2004, our cash flow from operations exceeded our property, plant, and equipment, including intangibles, cash outlays by $30.5 million.  After paying $29.0 million in cash dividends throughout 2004, $15.5 million in cash on acquisitions, and spending $114.6 million on the purchase of fixed and intangible assets, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $53.7 million as of December 31, 2004, a decrease of $11.5 million or 18% from December 31, 2003.  With virtually no long-term or short-term debt and strong cash flows, Golden Telecom is in an excellent financial position, and continues to be well positioned to take advantage of the opportunities in 2005 and beyond. ”

 

Regulatory:

 

On January 1, 2004, the new law “On Telecommunications’ (the ‘New Law’), came into effect in Russia.  While most of the supporting regulations to the New Law have not been enacted and implemented, there are  key areas in which Golden Telecom believes it may potentially be affected relating to licenses for international long distance traffic, voice over IP traffic, and  interconnect pricing.  Additionally, the New Law creates a Universal Service Charge calculated as a percentage of some portion of revenue which is intended to improve telecommunication services in rural areas.  Other areas in which the New Law may impact the Company relate to assignment of number capacity, public network construction, and settlement rates. 

 

In Ukraine, the impact of the “CPP” rules (“calling party pays” rules) that were implemented in the 2003 Ukrainian Law on Telecommunications prohibiting telecommunication operators from charging their end user customers for incoming calls was fully recognized by the Company in 2004, and as a consequence, some of our product margins were lower than the margins earned in 2003 before the CPP rules were implemented.  However, Golden Telecom Ukraine continued to perform well by increasing year-on-year revenues 45% to $64.5 million in 2004 from $44.5 million in 2003.  Additionally, in August 2004, the State Committee on Communications established new license conditions covering such items as the re-issuance of existing fixed-voice licenses, however, the exact impact of this legislation on our business cannot be estimated until further guidance is handed down by the State Committee.

 

Looking Forward:

 

With respect to 2005, the Company continues to see growth opportunities organically, through select acquisitions and through development of new product lines.  While our research indicates the telecommunications sector growth in business segments in the Moscow and St. Petersburg markets of fixed telecommunications services will continue to grow, we believe that the bulk of our growth will come from the key regions of Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Ekaterinburg, Ufa, Krasnoyarsk, Khabarovsk,and Vladivostok.  Based on this expected growth in the regions, the Company has been implementing its regional strategy and will continue to do so in 2005 through increased investment in last mile, and as part of Golden Telecom’s network infrastructure development, through the continued construction of the inter-city fiber optic link being built in conjunction with VimpelCom.  This fiber optic link from Moscow to Ufa through Nizhny Novgorod and Kazan is expected to be operational in the second half of 2005.  To date, the line has been completed from Moscow to Noginsk, with various other segments under construction.  Michal Cupa, Senior Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, remarked, “This expansion along our heavy traffic and high cost routes will allow Golden Telecom to connect our operations in the European part of Russia to this backbone network, and in the short to medium-term, this project will reduce transmission costs.  Furthermore, this line, in conjunction with our high capacity backbone from Moscow to St. Petersburg, ensures that we have thorough coverage along our highest traffic routes.” 

 

Mr. Cupa went on to comment, “The expansion of our network infrastructure also fits within our regional expansion strategy.  Golden Telecom believes that the future telecommunications growth in Russia and the CIS is within the major regional population centers, and our acquisition strategy over the past year demonstrated the Company’s commitment to expanding to those population centers. ”

 

With respect to capital expenditure levels in 2005, the Company expects that these expenditures, as a percentage of revenues, will remain consistent with 2003 and 2004 expenditures.

Notes to data for Golden Telecom:

 

1.        EBITDA is defined as operating income plus depreciation and amortization. This measure is not defined by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and is a measure of a company performance commonly used in the telecommunications industry, but should not be construed as an alternative to operating income/(loss) determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of operating performance or as an alternative to cash from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP as a measure of liquidity. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income is included in this press release.

 

2.        MCT Corp. is not included in the operating data shown.

 

3.        Dial-up Internet subscribers is the number of users (or logins) who have logged on to the system during the month in question, regardless of whether they are enabled or disabled at month end. It specifically excludes “on-trial” users, free users and internal users.
