BELLEVUE, Wash. - July 30, 2015 - T-Mobile US, Inc. (NYSE: TMUS) today reported second quarter 2015 results reflecting continued strong momentum, industry-leading growth, and continued low churn. The Company again outperformed the competition in both customer and financial growth metrics. T-Mobile generated 2.1 million total net customer additions, marking the ninth consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has delivered over one million total net customer additions. Additionally, the Company delivered 14% total revenue growth and 25% growth in adjusted EBITDA compared to the second quarter of 2014.

"While the carriers continue to use gimmicks to confuse consumers, T-Mobile continues to listen to customers and respond with moves that blow them away," said John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile. "On top of adding 2.1 million new customers in the second quarter, we delivered 14% year-over-year revenue growth and 25% year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth. Overall, I think our results speak for themselves."

Operational and Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter 2015
T-Mobile continued to deliver strong customer growth and ended the second quarter of 2015 with 58.9 million total customers. In the second quarter of 2015, T-Mobile added 2.1 million net new customers, including branded postpaid net customer additions of 1.0 million, comprised of phone net customer additions of 760,000 - expected to be the highest in the U.S. wireless industry once again - and mobile broadband net customer additions of 248,000.

Branded postpaid phone churn was 1.3% in the second quarter of 2015, down 16 basis points year-over-year and essentially flat sequentially. The year-over-year improvement in churn reflects ongoing improvements in the Company’s network, customer service, and the overall value of its offerings in the marketplace, resulting in increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.

T-Mobile’s branded prepaid net customer additions were 178,000 in the second quarter of 2015, which represents a significant improvement both year-over-year and sequentially. Branded prepaid to branded postpaid migrations were 175,000 in the second quarter of 2015, down from 195,000 in the first quarter of 2015.

Total device sales, including both branded postpaid and prepaid customers, were 8.3 million units in the second quarter of 2015, of which total smartphone sales were 7.4 million units.

In addition to strong customer growth, T-Mobile delivered outstanding financial results. In the second quarter of 2015, the Company expects to again report the fastest year-over-year revenue growth in the industry for both service and total revenues. Service revenues for the second quarter of 2015 grew by 12.0% year-over-year, primarily due to rapid growth in the Company’s customer base. On a sequential basis, service revenues grew by 5.6% primarily due to higher branded postpaid phone ARPU and growth in the customer base. Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, service revenues in the second quarter of 2015 increased by 3.7% sequentially.

T-Mobile’s total revenues for the second quarter of 2015 grew by 13.8% year-over-year and 5.2% sequentially. The increase was due to continued growth in both service revenues and equipment revenues, which grew by 19.7% year-over-year and 3.5% sequentially.

Branded postpaid phone Average Revenue per User (ARPU) increased sequentially by 3.8% to $48.19, driven primarily by the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash in the first quarter of 2015. On a year-over-year basis, branded postpaid phone ARPU declined 2.3%. Excluding the impacts of Data Stash, branded postpaid phone ARPU in the second quarter of 2015 increased by 1.0% sequentially.

Branded postpaid Average Billings per User (ABPU) was a record $63.29 in the second quarter of 2015, up 5.9% year-over-year and 3.9% sequentially. The increase was primarily due to growth in Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) billings.

Branded postpaid Average Revenue per Account (ARPA) was $113.50 in the second quarter of 2015, up 6.0% year-over-year and 5.1% sequentially. The increase was due to growth in branded postpaid service revenues as well as an increase in the number of branded postpaid customers per account.

Branded postpaid Average Billings per Account (ABPA) amounted to a record $152.31 in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 15.6% year-over-year and 5.0% sequentially. The increase was due to growth in EIP billings as well as an increase in the number of branded postpaid customers per account.

Branded prepaid ARPU increased by 1.8% year-over-year and 0.1% sequentially to $37.83.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was $1.8 billion, up 25.2% year-over-year and up 30.9% sequentially. Year-over-year, the increase was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base combined with strong cost control, especially in cost of services, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses. Sequentially, the increase was primarily due to higher service revenues and decreased losses on equipment sales, partially offset by higher SG&A expenses. Excluding the impacts of Data Stash, Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2015 increased by 21.3% sequentially. The Adjusted EBITDA margin was 30% for the second quarter of 2015, up from 26% in the second quarter of 2014 and 24% in the first quarter of 2015.

Net income amounted to $361 million, a strong improvement from a loss of $63 million in the first quarter of 2015 and down from net income of $391 million in the second quarter of 2014. Earnings per share (EPS) in the second quarter of 2015 was $0.42 compared to EPS of $0.48 in the second quarter of 2014 and a loss per share of $(0.09) in the first quarter of 2015. The year-over-year decrease in net income and EPS was primarily due to gains on disposal of spectrum licenses of $747 million recognized in the second quarter of 2014, partially offset by a decrease in income tax expense primarily due to the impact of income tax benefits for several discrete items recognized in the second quarter of 2015. T-Mobile expects EPS to be positive for all the remaining quarters and the full-year of 2015.

J.D. Power Recognizes T-Mobile for Customer Care
On July 30, 2015, J.D. Power recognized T-Mobile for its leadership in Customer Care Performance, awarding the Company the highest ranking among full service wireless providers in the J.D. Power 2015 Wireless Customer Care Full-Service Study - Volume 2. Regaining the highest ranking reinforces T-Mobile’s track record as an organization with a strong focus and commitment to providing an outstanding customer experience whether you call in, come in to the store, or access online.

Un-Carrier Delivering Results
Since launching Un-carrier in 2013, T-Mobile has disrupted the wireless industry with innovations such as no annual service contracts, equipment installment plans, the JUMP!® device upgrade program, free international data roaming, Contract Freedom, T-Mobile Test Drive, Music Freedom, Wi-Fi Un-leashed, Data Stash, and Business Un-leashed. Over the past month, the Company introduced a series of Un-carrier Amped announcements that extend the lineup with:

JUMP! On Demand: T-Mobile updated its JUMP! program to enable customers to have a low monthly payment that covers the cost of leasing a new device and the freedom to swap it for a new one up to three times in twelve months with no extra fee.
Mobile without Borders: T-Mobile’s Simple Choice plan now extends coverage and calling across the United States, Canada and Mexico at no extra charge. The upgrade makes Simple Choice the first and only wireless plan to span the entire continent.
10 GB for All: T-Mobile updated its Family Plan program to enable qualifying family plan customers to get 10 GB of 4G LTE data at a great rate. Plans start at $100 per month for two lines, each with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE data, and each additional line is $20 per month. For a limited time, the fourth line is free.
Amping Music Freedom and iPhone®: T-Mobile updated its Music Freedom program by adding Apple Music to its list of services that stream free on T-Mobile. In addition, every customer who gets a new iPhone 6 with JUMP! On Demand™ this summer can lock in the promotional price of $15 per month and simply swap it for the next comparable iPhone, if they upgrade before the end of the year. Lastly, all customers who get a new iPhone 6 with JUMP! On Demand will have exclusive priority access among T-Mobile’s customers to the next iPhone.

Network Expansion and Capital Expenditures
T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network - America’s Fastest - now covers 290 million people and the Company is targeting coverage of 300 million people by year-end 2015. T-Mobile is rapidly deploying Wideband LTE, while at the same time rolling out 4G LTE on its 700 MHz A-Block and 1900 MHz PCS spectrum. Wideband LTE is currently available in 212 market areas and is expected to be available in more than 250 market areas by year-end 2015. The Company continues to deploy its 700 MHz A-Block spectrum with major market launches in Miami, Denver, Baltimore, Kansas City, Austin, and West Palm Beach during the second quarter of 2015, bringing the overall total to 141 market areas.

Cash capital expenditures reflect T-Mobile’s continued investment in the expansion of its 4G LTE network. In the second quarter of 2015, cash capital expenditures were $1.2 billion, up from $982 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $940 million in the second quarter of 2014.

MetroPCS Combination
On July 1, 2015, T-Mobile decommissioned the CDMA portion of the MetroPCS networks in Dallas, New York, Miami, and the remaining Florida markets, officially completing the shutdown of the MetroPCS CDMA network. 100% of the MetroPCS spectrum has now been re-farmed and integrated into the T-Mobile network.

Total decommissioning costs for the CDMA network shutdowns amounted to $34 million in the second quarter of 2015. The Company expects to incur additional network decommissioning costs in the range of $350 to $450 million with substantially all the costs to be recognized throughout the rest of 2015.

2015 Outlook Guidance
T-Mobile expects to drive further customer momentum while delivering strong growth in Adjusted EBITDA. With the success of its Simple Choice plan and the continued evolution of the Un-carrier strategy, branded postpaid net customer additions for 2015 are now expected to be between 3.4 and 3.9 million, an increase from the previous guidance range of 3.0 to 3.5 million.

For the full-year of 2015, T-Mobile expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $6.8 to $7.2 billion, unchanged from previous guidance despite the increase in branded postpaid net customer additions guidance.

Cash capital expenditures for 2015 are expected to be in the range of $4.4 to $4.7 billion, also unchanged from previous guidance.

T-Mobile’s financial guidance for 2015 excludes any benefit from the impact of JUMP! On Demand. The Company intends to disclose the aggregate non-cash impact from JUMP! On Demand and Data Stash in future quarters. In the second quarter of 2015, there were no significant impacts to financial results from JUMP! On Demand and Data Stash.

Gains on disposal of spectrum licenses may not agree to the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss) primarily due to certain routine operating activities, such as insignificant or routine spectrum license exchanges that would be expected to reoccur, and are therefore included in Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA - Earnings before interest expense (net of interest income), tax, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and expenses not reflective of T-Mobile's ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA divided by service revenues. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure utilized by T-Mobile's management to monitor the financial performance of its operations. T-Mobile uses Adjusted EBITDA internally as a metric to evaluate and compensate its personnel and management for their performance, and as a benchmark to evaluate T-Mobile's operating performance in comparison to its competitors. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA to measure its ability to provide cash flows to meet future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements, and to fund future growth. T-Mobile believes analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate overall operating performance and facilitate comparisons with other wireless communications companies. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income from operations, net income, or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

CUSTOMER METRICS
Branded Postpaid Customers
Branded postpaid net customer additions were 1,008,000 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 1,125,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 908,000 in the second quarter of 2014. This marked the fourth consecutive quarter in which branded postpaid net customer additions were greater than one million, a clear indicator of the continued success of the Un-carrier initiatives and strong uptake of promotions for services and devices.
T-Mobile is expected to again lead the industry in branded postpaid phone net customer additions with 760,000 in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 991,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 579,000 in the second quarter of 2014. Branded postpaid phone gross additions in the second quarter of 2015 declined by 9% on a sequential basis, but were up 9% year-over-year. T-Mobile is expected to have captured all of the industry’s postpaid phone growth in the second quarter of 2015.
Branded postpaid mobile broadband net customer additions were 248,000 in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 134,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 329,000 in the second quarter of 2014.
Branded postpaid phone churn was 1.32% in the second quarter of 2015, down 16 basis points compared to 1.48% in the second quarter of 2014 and up two basis points compared to 1.30% in the first quarter of 2015. The year-over-year improvement reflects ongoing improvements in the Company’s network, customer service, and the overall value of its offerings in the marketplace, resulting in increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Branded Prepaid Customers
Branded prepaid net customer additions were 178,000 in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 73,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 102,000 in the second quarter of 2014. The higher level of branded prepaid net customer additions in the second quarter of 2015 was driven by successful promotions for services and devices and slightly lower sequential customer migrations from branded prepaid to branded postpaid.
Migrations to branded postpaid plans reduced branded prepaid net customer additions in the second quarter of 2015 by approximately 175,000, down from 195,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and up from 85,000 in the second quarter of 2014.
Branded prepaid churn was 4.93% in the second quarter of 2015, up 31 basis points from 4.62% in the first quarter of 2015 and up 43 basis points from 4.50% in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially and year-over-year, the increase in churn was principally due to ongoing competitive activity in the marketplace.


Total Branded Customers
Total branded net customer additions were 1,186,000 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 1,198,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 1,010,000 in the second quarter of 2014. This was the sixth consecutive quarter in which branded net customer additions surpassed the one million milestone.

Wholesale Customers
Total wholesale net customer additions were 886,000 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 620,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 460,000 in the second quarter of 2014.
MVNO net customer additions were 919,000 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 479,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 235,000 in the second quarter of 2014.
M2M net customer losses were 33,000 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to net customer additions of 141,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 225,000 in the second quarter of 2014.

Total Customers
Total net customer additions were 2,072,000 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 1,818,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and 1,470,000 in the second quarter of 2014. This was the ninth consecutive quarter in which total net customer additions exceeded one million. It was also the fourth time in the last six quarters in which total net customer additions exceeded two million.
Since the launch of its first Un-carrier initiative nine quarters ago, T-Mobile has added more than 16 million total customers.
T-Mobile ended the second quarter of 2015 with more than 58.9 million total customers.

NETWORK
Network Modernization Update
T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network now covers 290 million people, up from 275 million at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and 233 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014.
The Company is targeting a total 4G LTE population coverage of 300 million people by year-end 2015. During 2015, the Company expects to add one million square miles of territory under its 4G LTE coverage.
Wideband LTE, which refers to markets that have bandwidth of at least 15+15 MHz dedicated to 4G LTE, is currently available in 212 market areas and is now expected to be available in more than 250 market areas by year-end 2015. Customers in Wideband LTE markets are regularly observing peak speeds in the 70 Mbps range, with maximum real-world speeds in excess of 145 Mbps.

Network Speed
T-Mobile has the fastest nationwide 4G LTE network in the U.S. based on download speeds from millions of user- generated tests. This is the sixth consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has led the industry in average download speeds.
In the second quarter of 2015, T-Mobile’s average 4G LTE download speed was 18.5 Mbps compared to Verizon at 18.2 Mbps, AT&T at 14.8 Mbps, and Sprint at 10.6 Mbps.




6


Spectrum
At the end of the second quarter of 2015, T-Mobile owned an average of 84 MHz of spectrum across the top 25 markets in the U.S. The spectrum is comprised of an average of 10 MHz in the 700 MHz band, 30 MHz in the 1900 MHz PCS band, and 44 MHz in the AWS band.
The Company expects to participate in future FCC spectrum auctions including the broadcast incentive auction.




7


A-Block Update
T-Mobile owns 700 MHz A-Block spectrum covering 190 million people or approximately 60% of the U.S. population and approximately 70% of the Company’s existing branded customer base. The spectrum covers 9 of the top 10 market areas and 24 of the top 30 market areas in the U.S.
Approximately 98% of the population covered by the Company’s A-Block spectrum is free and clear and ready to be deployed or will be ready for deployment in 2015. That is up from approximately 50% at the time of the original A-Block spectrum purchase from Verizon in the first quarter of 2014.
T-Mobile has deployed its 700 MHz A-Block spectrum in 141 market areas. New launches in the second quarter of 2015 included the cities of Miami, Denver, Baltimore, Kansas City, Austin, and West Palm Beach. The Company plans to continue to aggressively roll-out new 700 MHz sites with new launches planned for Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, and Sacramento in 2015, among others.

METROPCS
On July 1, 2015, T-Mobile officially completed the shutdown of the MetroPCS CDMA network with the decommissioning of the CDMA portion of the MetroPCS networks in Dallas, New York, Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa. Since the close of the business combination in May 2013, nearly 9 million legacy MetroPCS customers have been migrated to the T-Mobile network.
100% of the MetroPCS spectrum on a MHz/POP basis has now been re-farmed and integrated into the T-Mobile network, compared to 80% at the end of the first quarter of 2015.
Total decommissioning costs for CDMA network shutdowns were $34 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $128 million in total decommissioning costs in the first quarter of 2015. The sequential decrease in total decommissioning costs was primarily due to the timing of the CDMA network shutdowns. Typically, there is a lag of approximately 3 to 6 months between network shutdown and the recognition of decommissioning costs and realization of synergies.
The Company expects to incur additional network decommissioning costs in the range of $350 to $450 million with substantially all the costs to be recognized through the rest of 2015. Network decommissioning costs primarily relate to the acceleration of lease costs for decommissioned cell sites and are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA.

UN-CARRIER INITIATIVES
At the end of the second quarter of 2015, 93% of the branded postpaid customer base was on a Simple Choice plan, up from 92% at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and 80% at the end of the second quarter of 2014.
At the end of the second quarter of 2015, 11.3 million customers were enrolled in the JUMP! program, up from 10.3 million at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and 6.7 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014.

Un-carrier Updates
JUMP! On Demand: On June 28, 2015, T-Mobile updated its JUMP! program to enable customers to have a low monthly payment that covers the cost of leasing a new device plus the freedom to swap their leased device for a new one up to three times in twelve months with no extra fee. Under this program, at lease inception, devices are transferred from inventory to property and equipment. Devices are then depreciated to their estimated residual value. Revenues associated with the leased devices are recognized over the term of the lease.
Mobile without Borders: This program, launched on July 15, 2015, expands the benefits of T-Mobile’s Simple Choice plan by extending coverage and calling across the U.S, Canada, and Mexico at no extra charge. The upgrade makes Simple Choice the first and only wireless plan to span the entire continent.
10 GB for All: On July 15, 2015, T-Mobile updated its Family Plan program to enable qualifying family plan customers to get 10 GB of 4G LTE data at a great rate. Plans start at $100 per month for two lines each with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE data and each additional line is $20 per month. For a limited time, the fourth line is free.
Amping Music Freedom and iPhone®: On July 28, 2015, T-Mobile updated its Music Freedom program by adding Apple Music to its list of services that stream free on T-Mobile. In addition, every customer who gets a new iPhone 6 with JUMP! On Demand™ this summer can lock in the promotional price of $15 per month and simply swap it for the next comparable iPhone, if they upgrade before the end of the year. Lastly, all customers who get a new iPhone 6 with JUMP! On Demand will have exclusive priority access among T-Mobile’s customers to the next iPhone.

T-Mobile financed $1.697 billion of equipment sales on EIP in the second quarter of 2015, up 14.4% from $1.483 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 26.5% from $1.342 billion in the second quarter of 2014. The sequential and year-over-year increase was due to higher gross customer additions, growth in devices financed through EIP, including customers choosing to JUMP!, and a higher average price per device sold.
Customers on Simple Choice plans had associated EIP billings of $1.393 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 7.8% from $1.292 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 72.0% from $810 million in the second quarter of 2014.
Total EIP receivables, net of imputed discount and allowances for credit losses, were $5.114 billion at the end of the second quarter of 2015 compared to $4.842 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and $3.583 billion at the end of the second quarter of 2014. The $272 million sequential increase in total EIP receivables, net in the second quarter of 2015 was higher than the sequential increase of $152 million in the first quarter of 2015, and reflects growth in devices financed through EIP.
The Company continues to expect that the growth in total EIP receivables, net will moderate significantly in 2015 compared to 2014.




12


 
CUSTOMER QUALITY
EIP receivables classified as Prime were 52% of total EIP receivables at the end of the second quarter of 2015, flat from the prior quarter and down one percentage point compared to the end of the second quarter of 2014.
Total bad debt expense and losses from the factoring arrangement was $156 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $169 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $164 million in the second quarter of 2014. Year-over-year, total bad debt expense and losses from the factoring arrangement as a percentage of total revenues decreased 37 basis points. Sequentially, total bad debt expense and losses from the factoring arrangement as a percentage of total revenues decreased 26 basis points, primarily due to a non-recurring impact from a change to the factoring arrangement in the first quarter of 2015.

REVENUE METRICS
Branded Postpaid Phone ARPU
Branded postpaid phone ARPU was $48.19 in the second quarter of 2015, up 3.8% from $46.43 in the first quarter of 2015 and down 2.3% from $49.32 in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially, the increase in branded postpaid phone ARPU was primarily due to the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash recognized in the first quarter of 2015. Year-over-year, the decrease was primarily due to dilution from continued growth of customers on Simple Choice plans and promotions targeting multiple phone lines, including the “4 for $100” offer.
Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, branded postpaid phone ARPU increased 1.0% sequentially.

Branded Postpaid ABPU
Branded postpaid ABPU was a record $63.29 in the second quarter of 2015, up 3.9% from $60.94 in the first quarter of 2015 and up 5.9% from $59.79 in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially, the increase in branded postpaid ABPU was primarily due to the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash recognized in the first quarter of 2015 and growth in EIP billings on a per user basis. Year-over-year, the increase was primarily due to growth in EIP billings on a per user basis, offset in part by lower branded postpaid phone ARPU.
Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, branded postpaid ABPU increased 1.7% sequentially.





14


Branded Postpaid Customers per Account
Branded postpaid customers per account was 2.43 at the end of the second quarter of 2015, compared to 2.39 at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and 2.23 at the end of the second quarter of 2014. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily a result of service promotions targeting multiple phone lines, including the “4 for $100” offer, and increased penetration of mobile broadband devices.

Branded Postpaid ARPA
Branded postpaid ARPA was $113.50 in the second quarter of 2015, up 5.1% from $108.04 in the first quarter of 2015 and up 6.0% from $107.11 in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially, the increase in branded postpaid ARPA was primarily due to the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash recognized in the first quarter of 2015 and an increase in the number of branded postpaid customers per account. Year-over-year, the increase was primarily due to higher regulatory program revenues and an increase in the number of branded postpaid customers per account, partially offset by dilution from continued growth of customers on promotions targeting multiple phone lines, including the “4 for $100” offer.
Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, branded postpaid ARPA increased 2.1% sequentially.




15


Branded Postpaid ABPA
Branded postpaid ABPA was a record $152.31 in the second quarter of 2015, up 5.0% from $145.03 in the first quarter of 2015 and up 15.6% from $131.81 in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially, the increase in branded postpaid ABPA was primarily due to the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash recognized in the first quarter of 2015, growth in EIP billings, and an increase in the number of branded postpaid customers per account. Year-over-year, the increase was primarily due to growth in EIP billings and an increase in the number of branded postpaid customers per account.
Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, branded postpaid ABPA increased 2.8% sequentially.

Branded Prepaid ARPU
Branded prepaid ARPU was $37.83 in the second quarter of 2015, essentially flat from $37.81 in the first quarter of 2015 and up 1.8% from $37.16 in the second quarter of 2014. Year-over-year, the increase in branded prepaid ARPU was primarily due to an increase in data attach rates.

REVENUES
Service Revenues
T-Mobile is expected to again lead the industry in year-over-year service revenue growth in the second quarter of 2015. This would mark the fifth consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has led the industry in year-over-year service revenue growth.
Service revenues were $6.144 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 5.6% from $5.819 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 12.0% from $5.484 billion in the second quarter of 2014. The year-over-year service revenue growth of 12.0% was an acceleration in the growth rate of three percentage points compared to the first quarter of 2015.
Sequentially, the increase in service revenues was primarily due to growth in the Company’s customer base from the continued success of T-Mobile’s Un-carrier initiatives and strong customer response to promotional activities targeting families as well as the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash recognized in the first quarter of 2015.
Year-over-year, the increase in service revenues was primarily due to growth in the Company’s customer base from the continued success of T-Mobile’s Un-carrier initiatives as well as the success of the MetroPCS brand, partially offset by lower branded postpaid phone ARPU.
Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, service revenues increased 3.7% sequentially.




17


Equipment Revenues
Equipment revenues were $1.915 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 3.5% from $1.851 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 19.7% from $1.600 billion in the second quarter of 2014.
Sequentially, the increase in equipment revenues was primarily due to a higher average revenue per device sold, partially offset by a decrease in the number of devices sold.
Year-over-year, the increase in equipment revenues was primarily due to an increase in the number of devices sold, including higher device upgrade volumes.

Total Revenues
T-Mobile is expected to again lead the industry in year-over-year total revenue growth in the second quarter of 2015.
Total revenues were $8.179 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 5.2% from $7.778 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 13.8% from $7.185 billion in the second quarter of 2014.




18


 
OPERATING EXPENSES
Cost of Services
Cost of services was $1.397 billion in the second quarter of 2015, essentially flat compared to $1.395 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and down 3.9% from $1.453 billion in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially, increases in cost of services due to the network expansion and 700 MHz A-Block build out were largely offset by lower lease expense. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to network synergies realized from the decommissioning of the MetroPCS CDMA network.

Cost of Equipment Sales
Cost of equipment sales was $2.661 billion in the second quarter of 2015, down 0.7% from $2.679 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 20.1% from $2.215 billion in the second quarter of 2014. The sequential decrease was primarily due to a decrease in the number of devices sold, offset in part by a higher average cost per device sold. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in the number of devices sold, including higher device upgrade volumes.




19


Selling, General and Admin. (“SG&A”) Expenses
SG&A expenses were $2.438 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 2.8% from $2.372 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 13.3% from $2.151 billion in the second quarter of 2014. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher employee-related expenses associated with an increase in the number of retail, administrative and customer support employees to support the growing customer base and higher commissions. Additionally, an increase in promotional costs contributed to the year-over-year increase.




20


 
ADJUSTED EBITDA
T-Mobile is expected to again lead the industry in year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth in the second quarter of 2015.
Adjusted EBITDA was $1.817 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 30.9% from $1.388 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and up 25.2% from $1.451 billion in the second quarter of 2014.
Sequentially, the increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base, decreased losses on equipment sales, and the impact of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash recognized in the first quarter of 2015, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses associated with customer growth.
Year-over-year, the increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base and lower cost of services, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses associated with customer growth.
Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2015 was impacted by the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash of $3 million, compared to the $112 million non-cash net revenue deferrals in the first quarter of 2015. Excluding the impacts of the non-cash net revenue deferrals for Data Stash, Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2015 increased 21.3% sequentially.
Adjusted EBITDA margin was 30% in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 24% in the first quarter of 2015 and 26% in the second quarter of 2014.




21


NET INCOME AND EARNINGS PER SHARE
Net income was $361 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to a net loss of $63 million in the first quarter of 2015 and net income of $391 million in the second quarter of 2014. The sequential increase in net income was primarily due to higher operating income in the second quarter of 2015. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to gains on disposal of spectrum licenses of $747 million recognized in the second quarter of 2014, partially offset by a decrease in income tax expense primarily due to the impact of income tax benefits for discrete items recognized in the second quarter of 2015, including recent changes in state and local income tax laws and the recognition of certain federal tax credits.
Earnings per share was $0.42 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to a loss per share of $(0.09) in the first quarter of 2015 and earnings per share of $0.48 in the second quarter of 2014.
T-Mobile expects to report positive earnings per share for all the remaining quarters and the full-year of 2015.


CAPITAL EXPENDITURES
Cash capital expenditures for property and equipment were $1.191 billion in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $982 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $940 million in the second quarter of 2014. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily due to the timing of network spend in connection with T-Mobile’s modernization program and the build out for the 4G LTE on the 700 MHz A-Block and 1900 MHz PCS spectrum.




22


FREE CASH FLOW
Beginning in the second quarter of 2015, T-Mobile will report Free Cash Flow, which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less cash capital expenditures, and cease reporting Simple Free Cash Flow, which is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less cash capital expenditures. T-Mobile believes that Free Cash Flow provides a more complete representation of the cash available to pay debt and provide further investment in the business.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $1.161 billion in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $489 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $970 million in the second quarter of 2014.
Free Cash Flow was a loss of $30 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to a loss of $493 million in the first quarter of 2015 and Free Cash Flow of $30 million in the second quarter of 2014. Sequentially, the improvement in Free Cash Flow was due to higher operating income and increases from changes in net working capital, partially offset by higher cash capital expenditures. Year-over-year, the decrease was primarily due to decreases from changes in net working capital and higher cash capital expenditures, partially offset by higher operating income.
Adjusted Free Cash Flow was $73 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to a loss of $422 million in the first quarter of 2015 and Adjusted Free Cash Flow of $35 million in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted Free Cash Flow excludes decommissioning payments related to the one-time shutdown of the CDMA portion of the MetroPCS network from Free Cash Flow.
The Company continues to expect that Free Cash Flow will be positive for the full-year 2015.




23


CAPITAL STRUCTURE
Net debt, excluding tower obligations, at the end of the second quarter of 2015 was $19.7 billion.
Total debt, excluding tower obligations, at the end of the second quarter of 2015 was $22.4 billion and was comprised of short-term debt of $0.4 billion, long-term debt to affiliates of $5.6 billion, and long-term debt of $16.4 billion.
The ratio of net debt, excluding tower obligations, to Adjusted EBITDA for the trailing last twelve month (“LTM”) period was 3.1x at the end of the second quarter of 2015 compared to 3.3x at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and 3.4x at the end of the second quarter of 2014.
The Company’s cash position remains strong with $2.6 billion in cash at the end of the second quarter of 2015. The cash balance declined in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the end of the first quarter of 2015 due primarily to a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities related to the timing of vendor payments.




24


 
GUIDANCE
T-Mobile expects to drive further customer momentum while delivering strong growth in Adjusted EBITDA.
With the success of T-Mobile's Simple Choice plan and the continued evolution of the Un-carrier strategy, branded postpaid net customer additions for full-year 2015 are now expected to be between 3.4 and 3.9 million, an increase from the previous guidance of 3.0 to 3.5 million.
For full-year 2015, T-Mobile expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $6.8 to $7.2 billion, which is unchanged from previous guidance despite the increase in branded postpaid net customer additions guidance.
Cash capital expenditures for full-year 2015 are expected to be in the range of $4.4 to $4.7 billion, which is unchanged from previous guidance.
T-Mobile’s financial guidance for full-year 2015 excludes any benefit from the impact of JUMP! On Demand. The Company intends to disclose the aggregate non-cash impact from JUMP! On Demand and Data Stash in future quarters. In the second quarter of 2015, there were no significant impacts to financial results from JUMP! On Demand and Data Stash.
