Baghdad (independent) ... Said gignhaimr CEO, Zain Group to acquire neighboring telecommunications companies may also be an important means to allow for the Zain Group to become a provider of integrated services, and to expand into new service areas, adding "during the next three to five years!! move more in that area, adding that for Zain Iraq seems on its way to summon the strength to move, the company is preparing to publicly traded shares in the Iraqi stock exchange during the year 2014, as it's already established local company based Iraq to implement initial public offering.

Asked in an interview with gignhaimr magazine "Combs" Middle East and North Africa and seen by the (independent) "we are interested in expansion? The answer is definitely Yes, "but it should be strategic and financial sense, so we will not we behind acquisitions, mobile communications operators: given, I want first to make sure it's in the Middle East and North Africa, and the most current opportunities exist in North Africa".

Say gignhaimr to acquire neighboring telecommunications companies may also be an important means to allow for the Zain Group to become a provider of integrated services, and to expand into new service areas, adding "during the next three to five years!! move more in that area, it is true that there are a lot of regulatory hurdles but we are aware that anything that moves in the direction of services M2M and IP, and data services, there will be no voice in the next 10 years.

And all the services are data services at 100 percent and we want to move in that direction, and there are a lot of things that can be done in the areas of fiber optics, and mobile content, services, etc.

Gignhaimr believes that it is particularly important in the mobile telecommunications market experiencing growing revenue contraction voice calls and text messaging, because of the proliferation of so-called OTT services, also believes it is important for the Zain Group to build an expanded platform allows customers to access to services anytime, anywhere and through any device.

Through the pursuit of revenue through data services, regard gignhaimr as the group will be able to offset declines in revenue from voice services, and revenue from text messages, the regressions that affect the entire telecommunications industry.

I think logically adds that we can continue to grow our revenue, not necessarily directly from voice services, and data services to existing clients, but also by neighboring businesses and areas not explored fully.

Data services plan

And reflected the importance of data services in the second quarter of the Zain Group, in fact, the data services revenue growth at an annual rate of 24 percent, excluding revenue from text messaging services and value added services, the net income of broadband mobile broadband contributed 13 percent of total revenue collection services during the second quarter.

If you calculate the income text messaging services and value added services, data services are contributed by 21 percent of the total revenue of the Zain Group.

Gignhaimr said that the growth in revenue from non-voice services was a reflection of effective investment in broadband networks, especially in the area of infrastructure networks-LTE (LTE), which are networks that contributed only on future consolidation processes, but also allow digital content services more effectively.

Gignhaimr added that there is considerable scope for growth in data services, especially bearing in mind that Iraq has not given a third generation license.

In the context of the recent investments in networking, gignhaimr noted that Zain launched LTE networks already in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain, as well as 3 g and 3.5 G, 2.4 G high speed in all countries except Iraq.

Even in Iraq, the Group's network has been updated so that it is ready to offer 3 g services, once you get the license and spectrum, and earlier this year, Zain has succeeded in securing access to additional financing after signing with 7 banks worth $700 million.

Gignhaimr says that this credit facility is used for several purposes, including investment in network development.

He gignhaimr if you look at the net margin debt at the level of 0.85, and this means that we have prepared at a reasonable level of debt, and so we have room to accommodate more debt, but it is not specified for a particular thing.

Gignhaimr said that Zain Group intends to pump large investments in their networks, stating that it did not have any problem when it comes to investing in capital expenditures, say the last few years may have seen some decline in investments in Iraq, specifically during the years 2010 and 2011, but this situation is changing, and we invest heavily over the last 18 months, so I don't see any problem in any aspect of investment, we have free cash flows.

Customer segments

In line with the plans of the Zain Group to increase their revenue from data services, the Group also will seek to explore broader segments of customers, allowing them to offer more specialized. As regards investments in this segment, the group signed a cooperation agreement with Oracle for business analysis, the Group began publishing new platforms for this purpose.

Say gignhaimr to get an in-depth look at customer segments and attempting to identify the different segments in which we want to pursue, is one of the best things you can be any operator.

There is another key to enable the provision of certain target audiences Services packages, as well as the OSS and the BSS, Zain is also considered carefully, says gignhaimr, the group is currently seeking to adopt a comprehensive policy for all affiliates.

"We focus too much on the side of the BSS services during the current year, plus aggregate billing and business intelligence, noting that the group currently selected for the publication of a new CRM system, and it expects to make a decision within the next few months.

The Zain Saudi Arabia en route to improvement, thanks to the restructuring of its debt, the company now seems to have become the area to grow and develop, and what happened was that in June, the company obtained an extension of the time limit to pay the $2.3 billion dollars owed by facilitating the murabaha, under the company extended the maturity of murabaha loan for 5 years, and renewal to 31 December 2018.

The horrors of the vagaries of currency exchange

Zain Group's results for the first half of 2013, it was clear that its operations in the Sudan (Zain) affected the overall results of the group, as a result of the depreciation of the currency, and in reality the negative fluctuations in the exchange rate for the currency in the Republic of the Sudan, has cost the company about $347 million in revenue, and $150 million in EBITDA and $80 million in net profits.

A clear impact on group results, the Group's revenue for the second quarter of $1.1 billion, reversing a decline of 9 percent from the second quarter of 2012, but if you exclude the impact of currency fluctuations, revenue was $1.3 billion, reflecting a growth of 5 percent.

But not all news from Zain Sudan carrying such challenges, there is a new communication Tax Act was introduced in the Republic of the Sudan in mid June 2013 and is the law which abolished the 30 percent levied income tax for 3 years. The law was applied retroactively from 1 January 2013.

But when you look beyond matters relating to currency exchange rate fluctuations, giginhaimr insists that the Group's operation in Sudan, coherent and powerful. Says our core business in a reasonably strong, growing at a rate of 8 to 10 percent annually on the basis of the local currency, as a company with a good performance.

For Zain Iraq seems on its way to summon the strength to move, the company is preparing to publicly traded shares in the Iraqi stock exchange during the year 2014, as it's already established local company based in Iraq to carry out initial public offering.

Describes gignhaimr Zain Iraq is a very important part of the group, adding that the company contributes 40 percent of the total revenue of the Group and 31 percent of its total client base. Gignhaimr believes that the Iraqi market important market we expect to achieve further growth.

And the Iraqi market to tremendous growth potential, given the low broadband penetration rates, in addition to the relatively low penetration of mobile communication in General. Zain has recently expanded its network in Iraq for Kurdish areas in the North.

It is scheduled to be awarded licences (3G) soon, there is also great potential for growth in broadband (broadband). The company has invested more than $4.5 billion so far in Iraq, expected revenues IPO expected to exceed $1 billion.

In view of the group as a whole, the gignhaimr is keen to encourage collaboration and integration between the Group companies in the best expertise and capacity, to achieve this group seeks to hold discussion forums on important issues such as the value added services and business services and finance, are forums in which senior officials of the companies of the group to share and exchange of views on challenges and best practices.

Say giginhaimr we try to find the capacity increase of partnership and complementarity between our companies strive to create areas of excellence, while the gignhaimr is keen to assist in the transfer of experience between group companies, it also serves to add some functional areas functional task group level.

One of those areas is the customer experience. He will bring a great but I just brought a new head of customer experience management, noting that customer experience is one of the most important strategic pillars for the Zain Group.

We are starting the implementation of initiatives President will contribute to shaping how we work through them together internally to improve customer service.

AsiaCell opened at 23 ... now at 18 (am I wrong?) .... Hyped up IPO's aren't what they used to be ... choose the quiet ones ... harder to find but make for real returns.
