Paris, July 31, 2014 - Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced its second quarter 2014 results, reporting revenues of Euro 3,279 million, growing 0.7% year-on-year at constant exchange rates and comparable perimeter (except as otherwise mentioned, all revenue variations are at constant exchange rates and perimeter, with accounting of Enterprise as a discontinued operation as of Q1 2014 and LGS as deconsolidated as of Q2 2014). Revenues for the Group excluding Managed Services, reflecting the termination or restructuring of loss-making contracts, grew 5.0% year-on-year. This was largely driven by a very strong quarter in wireless, notably with LTE roll-outs in China and US.

Gross margin reached 32.6% of revenues in the quarter, improving by 140 basis points year-on-year. This improvement was essentially driven by cost savings. The gross margin improved sequentially by 30 basis points, as improved profitability in several business lines and continuous improvement in fixed operation costs, more than offset the dilutive impact on gross margin of roll-outs in China.

Fixed costs savings reached Euro 94 million in Q2 2014, bringing the total to date to Euro 572 million. In particular, SG&A expenses decreased by 13.9% compared to Q2 2013. The ratio of SG&A expenses to revenues declined by 130 basis points to 12.1% in Q2 2014 compared to Q2 2013.

Adjusted operating income reached Euro 136 million in the quarter, or 4.1% of revenues, trebling compared to Euro 45 million in Q2 2013, or 1.3% of revenues. The profitability of our Access segment continued to improve, reaching positive territory at Euro 11 million in Q2 2014.

Segment operating cash flow was Euro 96 million in Q2 2014, versus Euro (41) million in Q2 2013. This improvement of Euro 137 million was driven mainly by an increase of the Access segment operating income. Free cash flow was Euro (205) million in the quarter and improved by Euro 42 million year-over-year.

As reported, the Group showed a net loss (Group share) of Euro (298) million in Q2 2014, or Euro (0.11) per share. The improvement of Euro 587 million compared to Q2 2013 is mainly explained by a Euro (552) million impairment charge in Q2 2013, while higher level of operating income was partially offset by higher restructuring charges and the accelerated amortization of issuance fees ahead of the secured loan repayment.

In early June we issued two convertible bonds, a zero coupon maturing in 2019 and a 0.125% coupon maturing in 2020. The aggregate proceeds of approximately Euro 1.15 billion will be used to fully reimburse in August the senior secured credit facility outstanding tranche, due 2019. In early July, we repurchased Euro 210 million of the 2016 Notes, halving the outstanding amount due at maturity. With all maturities until 2017 being reimbursed or prefinanced, we now have completed our target to reprofile Euro 2 billion over the Shift Plan horizon.

At June 30, 2014, the Group’s overall Pensions and OPEB exposure indicated a surplus of Euro 814 million compared to a surplus of Euro 666 million at March 31, 2014.

We also announced today our intent to explore the capital opening of our subsidiary Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks (ASN) through an IPO, in order to finance the reinforcement of its leadership in telecom submarine systems and its diversification into the Oil & Gas market, to increase its visibility and to optimize capital allocation. Alcatel-Lucent will retain the majority of the ownership. Subject to market conditions, this capital opening is targeted to take place in the first half of 2015.

Commenting on the second quarter results, Michel Combes, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent, said: “I am proud of the very significant improvement achieved in the second quarter which demonstrates the fourth consecutive quarter of consistent delivery under the Shift Plan. With the upcoming reimbursement of the secured loan and the subsequent recovery of the full ownership of its patents, Alcatel-Lucent recaptures the full control of its destiny and can close the first step of its transformation. The Group can now embark on the second chapter of its turnaround story: innovate, transform and grow while keeping intact the commitment of returning to positive free cash flow in 2015.”

Wireless Access revenues were Euro 1,299 million, an increase of 28.1% year-on-year. Growth in the second quarter was mostly driven by strong performance in LTE which more than doubled compared to the year-ago quarter, led notably by the US and China. This growth was partially offset by continued declines in 2G and 3G technologies, which represented less than 25% of our wireless access revenues in Q2.

 

 

LTE overlay wins in the second quarter include a frame agreement with Telenor Group as well as America Movil in the Dominican Republic.

 

 

New small cell announcements included being named as a reference supplier at Vodafone as well as contracts with Denmark’s TDC and Uruguay’s Antel, bringing our total to 71 customers.

Fixed Access revenues were Euro 521 million in Q2 2014, an increase of 2.9% from Q2 2013. Ongoing trends continued, as both copper and fiber technologies continued to show strong performance, with notable growth in Europe and in Asia-Pacific outside of China.

 

 

2 new VDSL2 vectoring customers were announced during the quarter, bringing our total to 22.

 

 

A new broadband speed record of 10 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) was set by Bell Labs using traditional copper telephone lines and a prototype XG-FAST technology.

 

 

Our Gigabit Express solution was launched in North America, based on our flagship 7360 ISAM FX platform, to help service providers rollout gigabit networks.

Managed Services revenues were Euro 77 million, decreasing by 62.8%, reflecting our strategy to terminate or restructure loss-making contracts.

Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements, in particular with regard to product demand being as expected, of which a continued significant growth in some of our activities (and in particular those to which we have decided to focus our resources), our ability to close on any announced divestitures, in particular the divestment of our Enterprise businesses, as well as obtain the price we estimated by a given date for those remaining activities we want to divest (or other types of transaction where we do not remain the sole capital owner), to improve our level of free cash-flow, or to achieve all the goals of our Shift Plan, including headcount reduction, product mix and site rationalization, to exit unprofitable contracts and markets at a reasonable cost, as well as lead in nascent technologies such as cloud, streamline the organization and broaden the customer base. These risks and uncertainties are also based upon a number of factors including, among others, our ability to realize the full value of our existing and future intellectual property portfolio in a complex technological environment (including defending ourselves in infringement suits and licensing on a profitable basis our patent portfolio), our ability to operate effectively in a highly competitive industry and to correctly identify and invest in the technologies that become commercially accepted, demand for our legacy products and the technologies we pioneer, the timing and volume of network roll-outs and/or product introductions, difficulties and/or delays in our ability to execute on our other strategic plans, our ability to efficiently co-source or outsource certain business processes (in particular with regard to our finance and human resources functions) and more generally control our costs and expenses, the risks inherent in long-term sales agreements, exposure to the credit risk of customers or foreign exchange fluctuations, reliance on a limited number of suppliers for the components we need as well as our ability to efficiently source components when demand increases, the social, political risks we may encounter in any region of our global operations, the costs and risks associated with pension and postretirement benefit obligations, our ability to avoid unexpected contributions to such plans and to convert US pension liabilities into a one-time lump-sum payment in a cost-effective manner, changes to existing regulations or technical standards, existing and future litigation, compliance with environmental, health and safety laws, our ability to procure financing for our operations at an affordable cost, and the impact of each of these factors on our results of operations and cash. For a more complete list and description of such risks and uncertainties, refer to Alcatel-Lucent’s Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2013, as well as other filings by Alcatel-Lucent with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as required under the US federal securities laws and the rules and regulations of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Alcatel-Lucent disclaims any intention or obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the distribution of this presentation, whether as a result of new information, future events, developments, changes in assumptions or otherwise.

ADJUSTED PROFORMA RESULTS

In the second quarter, the reported net loss (group share) was Euro (298) million or Euro (0.11) per diluted share (USD (0.15) per ADS) including the negative after tax impact from Purchase Price Allocation entries of Euro 8 million.

In addition to the reported results, Alcatel-Lucent is providing adjusted results in order to provide meaningful comparable information, which exclude the main non-cash impacts from Purchase Price Allocation (PPA) entries in relation to the Lucent business combination. The second quarter 2014 adjusted net loss (group share) was Euro (290) million or Euro (0.10) per diluted share (USD (0.14) per ADS).

As our net result was a loss, stock-options and performance shares plans had an anti-dilutive effect; as a consequence, potential shares linked to those instruments were not taken into account in the dilutive weighted average number of shares or in the calculation of diluted loss per share.

Convertible bonds had an anti-dilutive effect; as a consequence, potential shares linked to those instruments were not taken into account in the dilutive weighted average number of shares or in the calculation of diluted income per share.
