HAITONG BANK CHIEF ECONOMIST KONRAD KSIEZOPOLSKI

 

I view Asseco's Q4 results as neutral. The group showed higher-than-expected revenues but EBIT and net results were below expectations, although divergences are not substantial.

 

Impairment tied to [Korean telecom] KT was expected, so it is not a negative surprise.

 

At the consolidated level, cash flow was very similar to last year's. Cash generation improved.

 

Dividend recommendation at last year's level was expected.

 

I think that the market will focus today on 2017 outlook comments from the conference, taking into account the stagnation in public sector and the fact that several important contracts expire.
