2 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica The absolute share of revenues and OIBDA of LatAm is around 50% but, per subscriber, it is much lower than Europe’s Sources: Telefonica annual reports Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12Page 2

3 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica Telefonica has been scrapping its dividend policy since December 2011 Dec’11May’12Jun’12Jul’12 “TEF hopes to raise 2 Billion EUR in O2 Germany IPO, and another 2 Billion EUR in partial sales of [14] carriers in Mexico, Chile and Central America.” “TEF is also expected to sell travel agency Rumbo in Spain, and Atento Call Center.” “TEF cuts its dividend from 1.75 EUR for 2012 and 2013, to 1.5 EUR for 2012 and 1.60 EUR for 2013, in an effort to keep its Net Debt between 2 and 2.5 x OIBDA.” “TEF resume dividend payments in 2013, but at half of the 1.50 EUR that was foreseen in Q3, 2011 for 2012.” TEF expects to “save 6.8 Billion EUR.” “TEF sell back a 4.56 percent stake in China Unicom.” “TEF will still hold a 5 percent stake […] and does not expect to sell any more China Unicom shares for at least 12 months.” Sources: Telefonica press reports, The New York Times, The Financial Times, Yahoo! Financials Page 3Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

4 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica Indeed, despite of some improvement, TEF has halved its DPS forecast … Evolution of Telefonica’s Dividend Policy (DPS in euros) SHAREHOLDERS 1.5 (as of Dec’11) 1.6 (as of Dec’11) 0.75 (as of Jul’12) 0.75 (as of Jul’12) 26.7% 15.9% 100% Sources: Telefonica press reports  In 9M’12, TEF more or less stabilized its Net Income, obtaining 2.1 bn, vs. 2.7 in 9M’11 and 8.8 in 9M’10  TEF doubled its 4Q11 Net Income w.r.t. the first 9 months of the same year (compared with 26.7% in , and 15.9% in 2010)  In 9M’12, TEF more or less stabilized its Net Income, obtaining 2.1 bn, vs. 2.7 in 9M’11 and 8.8 in 9M’10  TEF doubled its 4Q11 Net Income w.r.t. the first 9 months of the same year (compared with 26.7% in , and 15.9% in 2010) Page 4Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

5 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica … with TEF‘s leverage ratio being among the highest in the industry Although Telefonica ranks fourth worlwide in terms of OIBDA, after China Telecom, Verizon and AT&T, its Net Financial Debt is 21% higher than its most immediate competitor, AT&T SHAREHOLDERS 12-Months Net Financial Debt / OIBDA at March 31st, 2012 (Net Debt in millions of euros) Sources: CNBC, NYSE, NASDAQ Page 5Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

6 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica Indeed, TEF Net Debt has been increasing steadly since 2009 … With a definitely decrease in OIBDA, the yearly guidance for Telefonica Net Debt (< 2.35x) is sort of a mirage at the end of the first semester of 2012 SHAREHOLDERS  If net commitments related to workforce reduction in Spain were considered, the leverage ratio in 1H12 would stand at 2.85 x  The evolution with respect to FY11 can be explained, on the one hand, by shareholder remuneration not fully compensated by the debt reduction in Colombia due to the merger of the Colombian subsidiaries  If net commitments related to workforce reduction in Spain were considered, the leverage ratio in 1H12 would stand at 2.85 x  The evolution with respect to FY11 can be explained, on the one hand, by shareholder remuneration not fully compensated by the debt reduction in Colombia due to the merger of the Colombian subsidiaries 12-Months Net Financial Debt / OIBDA Sources: Telefonica annual reports Page 6Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

7 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica … worsened by a decrease in Free Cash Flow (*) FINANCIALS Evolution of Telefonica’s Financial Cash Flow (FCF in millions of euros, FCF per Share in euros) Indeed, because the Free Cash Flow is decreasing, there are three options out: decreasing the spending, stop paying dividends and / or increasing the debt of the company  The FCF per Share at 1H12 has halved the one at 1H11, so the dividend per share at the end of 2012 would have to be halved as well, from 1.60 EUR to 0.80 EUR, very close to the value that Telefoncia has provided for the new dividends policy Sources: Telefonica annual reports * The amount of cash that is left for finacnial commitments, like dividends Page 7Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

8 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica TEF’s debt depends heavily on the short term FINANCIALS The current economic situation in Europe is forcing the European Telcos to depend more on the short- term debt, and plan ahead less than their US counterparts 12-Months share Short- and Long- term Debt and Cash at March 31st, 2012 Sources: CNBC, NYSE, NASDAQ Page 8Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

9 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica That’s why TEF has been focusing on a strict control of CapEx EFFICIENCY Sources: Telefonica annual reports * (OpEx + CapEx exspectrum / Revenues Evolution of the Efficiency Ratio *, CapEx / Revenues and OpEx / Revenues Most of the efficiency increase efforts are been concentrated on the control of the CapEx in 1H12 (below the 2012 guidance so far in the 1H) Page 9Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

10 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica Supplies and Provisions decrease, Subcontracts and Taxes increase Notes: 1 Energy & real estate, mobile sites, external contractors, NOC, handset costs and MTRs, customer care, commercial activity, other 2 Recurrent (wages, SS, pensions), non-recurrent (restructuring, Fundacion Telefonica) 3 Leasing, advertising, bad debt provisions, taxes Evolution of the Operational Expenditures (OpEx) OpEx has been growing 11.98% from 2009 to 2011, but has decreased so far in H1, 2012, with all components down, except an increase in costs in Subcontracts and Taxes Non Personnel 1 Personnel 2 Other 3 Bad Debt Provisions Taxes Supplies Subcontracts EFFICIENCY Page 10Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

11 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica Efficiency gets better, but revenue generation slows down EFFICIENCY Revenue Growth vs. Efficiency Ratio,  The only region where the revenues grow consistently since 2009, is LatAm, although this has not made the Group revenue growth in to keep up with the one in  The evolution at the end of 2012 remains to be seen  The only region where the revenues grow consistently since 2009, is LatAm, although this has not made the Group revenue growth in to keep up with the one in  The evolution at the end of 2012 remains to be seen Sources: Telefonica annual reports All in all, and because of the control in CapEx, the better Group efficiency in 2011, despite of Spain’s, is needed to counteract the revenue growth decrease in resp Page 11Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12

12 Financial Analysis Update of Telefonica Conclusion  TEF are determined to increase the health of their current financial status  Because of this, CapEx is severely under control, non-strategic asset diversification is the rule, and the pressure on OpEX is expected to increase substantially  But TEF benefit from a strong geographical diversification, and is recognized by the industry for that, with an important exposure to the growing Latin American markets (>50% of OIBDA)  TEF efforts are focused at becoming more competitive, more efficient and regain momentum in Spain and the UK  In LatAm, Brazil is expected to drive the business of TEF  TEF are determined to increase the health of their current financial status  Because of this, CapEx is severely under control, non-strategic asset diversification is the rule, and the pressure on OpEX is expected to increase substantially  But TEF benefit from a strong geographical diversification, and is recognized by the industry for that, with an important exposure to the growing Latin American markets (>50% of OIBDA)  TEF efforts are focused at becoming more competitive, more efficient and regain momentum in Spain and the UK  In LatAm, Brazil is expected to drive the business of TEF Page 12Analysis Update of TEF at 1H12
