Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE.DE)Q1 2014 Earnings CallFormatted Report08-May-2014QUESTION AND ANSWER SECTIONFrederic E. BoulanAnalyst, Nomura International PlcQFirstly , a question on y our assets in Europe, Tim, I think y ou mentioned this morning unsatisfactory progress in acouple of assets, Poland, Holland. Can y ou discuss y our options here, and also about EE, how do y ou think aboutthis asset, considering the absence of fix ed there and the entry of BT in the consumer market later in the y ear?And, secondly, on the U.S. consolidation, John Legere was on the tape last week say ing consolidation was a matterof when and not if. So if y ou seek out meaningful sy nergies in a combination with another asset, would y ou readyto share the antitrust risk by not requiring significant [indiscernible] (25:18)? And also if y ou can walk us th roughy our thoughts on monetization of y our stake going into lock-up expiry at the end of this y ear v s. other options, andin particular, how y ou think about the AWS three auctions in that contex t? Thank y ou v ery much.Timotheus HöttgesChief Executive Officer, Deutsche Telekom AGAThank y ou, Fred. So let me start with the assets in Europe. Look, I think Thomas’ and my ambition is always to bev ery clear and not alway s making a dog and pony show on quarter results, but ev en v ocal about, let’s say ,challenges which we are facing. That was the reason that we were addressing this issue on the Netherlands and aswell in Poland. By the way , I think the net add numbers on the mobile side weren’t as high as we ex pected. Wewant to see more share on the marketplace; especially in Poland against the Orange we were facing quad -playoffers in that market.We ev en had a little bit less momentum on tests and on other things because we took some promotions out of thebusiness to improve the profitability. And in the Netherlands I think we hav e changed a little bit the logic of thiscontract support here. So, with this, I think the market ambition should be a little bit higher for our teams in thisregion. That has nothing to do that we are now questioning the port folio position of these two assets. It’s anoperational topic which we’re going to address throughout the y ear.With regards to the U.S. consolidation, when, not if, and ready to share the risks and how could we monetize ourstake here with the ex piry of the lock-up, and what are our thoughts on the upcoming spectrum auction – that ishow I understood y our question, Fred – I think the first thing is we are v ery happy how our U.S. business isdev eloping. We said last time, first what y ou hav e to do to turn around the business is infrastructure. We built thisinfrastructure of 200mm POPs, which we now increased to 250mm. With the LTE proposition, we said we hav esomething to sell in the marketplace.Now, we gained, ov er the last four quarters, big-time customers. Now the big-time customers, as a first step, iscreating revenues, and for the first time this quarter we are able to show you the increase on an organic lev el thatwe hav e increased 4.5%. Now, the logical consequence is that now FCF and EBITDA is th e consequence of thiscustomer growth, which will help us to self-fund further growth in the U.S. business. So this is becoming a selffunding platform, which is creating more momentum in the marketplace.So far, we are v ery proud of what we’re doing. Esp ecially if y ou look to the design of some of the EE shops or if y oulook to the branding of Sprint, they are copy -pasting what we are doing and try ing to do that, so I think themomentum of our proposition is unbroken, and therefore whatever we do, we do i t for creating additional v alue in1-877-FACTSET www.callstreet.com11Copyright 2001-2014 FactSet CallStreet, LLC

Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE.DE)Q1 2014 Earnings CallFormatted Report08-May-2014the U.S. market. There is no pressure. There is no hurry for selling a business at that point in time. We hav e a self funding platform which is nicely dev eloping.That said, correct, we will hav e an ex piry of the lock-up by the end of the y ear, so that we are open to sell some ofthe stock here; and, right, there’s even a lot of speculation with regard to spend. I do not want to put oil into thefire on that one in this conference call, but I reiterate what I’v e said alwa y s. We are open to create the supermav erick. I think to really create v alue in the market at a higher speed with a better network, with ev en morespectrum, a combination, for instance, with one of the play ers, would make a lot of sense to create a supermav erick against AT&T, against this bifurcated market in the U.S.So, therefore, if there would be an opportunity , it would be [indiscernible] (29:56). But y ou ev en know that theFCC and the DoJ make their statements. They want to keep this environment open for four players. I could alwayssay , look, y ou could say, if y ou want that, what are, let’s say , then the prerequisites from a spectrum policy , fromreserv ed spectrum, and from adv antages to compete with these two big play ers.This is something which we’re going to see next week because the FCC is set to propose pro -competitive spectrumauction rules for the nex t y ear’s 600 megahertz incentiv e auctions. I ev en hav e heard that there might be aspectrum reserv ation for smaller carriers. Let’s see what we will hear at the 1 5th of May on that subject. So,therefore, it is too early to say something on how it’s developing, but we have a v ery good momentum at that pointin time. With regard to the spectrum auction, we are waiting for the design which is coming , and we plan toparticipate in the auction nex t y ear.Frederic E. BoulanAnalyst, Nomura International PlcQTim, thank y ou v ery much.Thomas DannenfeldtChief Financial Officer, Deutsche Telekom AGAThe third question, I think, was on EE and the perspectives on BT entering the market here on the mobile side. Ithink, first of all, what Tim mentioned on the U.S. is true for the EE as well. It’s about v alue creation. Last y ear wec
