Margins reflected the investments that we are making in both our existing and new businesses, a number of which impacted the reporting period for the first time. We gained audience and market share in the majority of our markets, and also added more net subscribers to the Viasat platform than in recent quarters. The launch of new channels; the repackaging of our Nordic pay-TV offering; increasing penetration in Russia; the establishment of the joint venture in Ukraine; and the new agreement signed with Canal Digital in Norway, are all strategic developments intended to enable us to continue to grow sales at double digit percentage rates and further improve profitability levels moving forward.” “We commenced the share buy-back programme at the end of the quarter, which confirms our ongoing commitment to optimizing the Group’s capital structure, whilst maintaining the flexibility to continue to expand our operations. Cash flow generation is healthy and our return on capital employed has remained at over 30%. The Group is therefore well-positioned to take advantage of investment opportunities and structural market changes as they arise.” For further information, please visit www.mtg.se, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact: Hans-Holger Albrecht, President & CEO tel: +46 (0) 8 562 000 50 Mathias Hermansson, Chief Financial Officer tel: +46 (0) 8 562 000 50 Matthew Hooper, Investor & Analyst Enquiries tel: +44 (0) 7768 440 414 Bert Willborg, Press Enquiries tel: +44 (0) 791 2280 850 The information in this Interim Report is that which Modern Times Group MTG AB is required to disclose under the Securities Exchange and Clearing Operations Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.
