Telstra's CAPEX to Sales Ratio at 14.2%

Telstra's revenue for full fiscal year 2012 increased by 1.1%, or AUS $275 million, to $25,368 million. EBITDA increased by 0.8% or $83 million to $10,234 million.

"We have seen two years of significant customer growth as our strategy continues to bear fruit. This has translated into strong financial results despite tough domestic and international economic conditions," Chief Executive Officer David Thodey said today.

Some highlights for the full year:
  • The CAPEX to sales ratio was 14.2%, with capital expenditure of $3,591 million
  • added 1.6 million domestic mobile customers, to a total of 13.8 million;
  • added 203,000 retail fixed broadband customers, to a total of 2.6 million;
  • added 336,000 customers on bundled plans, to a total of 1.4 million;
  • added 475,000 Hong Kong mobile customers, to a total of 3.5 million.
  • Telstra’s 4G network build accelerated during the year and now covers approximately 40% of Australia’s population. Customers have activated more than 375,000 4G devices since launch.
  • Telstra’s domestic mobile business generated more than one third of revenue. Telstra has added more than three million new mobile customers over the past two years. Mobile revenue growth of 8.5% was achieved while margins increased by three percentage points to 36%.
  • Growth in retail broadband partly offset declines in wholesale revenues, which included the impact of regulatory access determinations. Fixed line revenue decline was steady at 6.1%. 06-Aug-12
