Revenue

Chunghwa's total revenue for 2007 increased by 7.8% year-on-year to NT$200.9 billion, of which 31.2% was from fixed-line services, 36.7% was from mobile services, 24.5% was from Internet and data services, and the remainder was from handset sales and consolidated revenue for SENAO.

Chunghwa's strong annual results were led by the consolidation of revenue from the Company's acquisition of SENAO, continued Internet & data revenue growth, and solid mobile business results. At NT$49.2 billion, Internet and data revenue in 2007 was 5.8% higher than in 2006, driven by continued total broadband subscriber growth and broadband speed upgrades. This growth was partly offset by an ADSL tariff adjustment that took effect on April 1, 2007. Mobile revenue increased by 1.0% in 2007 to NT$73.7 billion, mainly due to growing mobile subscriber numbers and significant mobile VAS revenue growth. Fixed-line revenue decreased by 0.6% year-on-year to NT$62.6 billion for 2007. The Company attributes this decrease to sustained mobile substitution, which resulted in a 0.1% local revenue decrease and a 6.6% domestic long distance revenue decrease. The fixed-line revenue decline was partially offset by a 2.4% increase in international long distance revenue, primarily attributable to significant revenue growth from international prepaid calling cards and the Company's wholesale business.

For 4Q 2007, total revenue was NT$52.4 billion, a 10.1% increase over the same period last year. Of this, 31.8% was from fixed-line services, 34.5% was from mobile services and 23.8% was from Internet and data services; the remainder is primarily attributable to the consolidation of NT$11.4 billion in revenue from SENAO beginning in 2Q 2007.

Costs and expenses

For 2007, total operating costs and expenses increased year-on-year by 6.2% to NT$138.1 billion, primarily due to NT$8.7 billion in subsidiary operating costs and expenses. The increase of operating costs from subsidiary was offset by the parent company's lower personnel expenses resulting from a smaller number of employees participating in the incentive retirement program, and a 27.4% reduction in handset subsidy expenses. At NT$39.4 billion, the Company's 2007 depreciation and amortization expense was 3.2% lower than 2006.

For 4Q 2007, total operating costs and expenses increased year-on-year by 11.1% to NT$37.5 billion, with most of the increase due to operating costs and expenses from the acquisition of SENAO.

Income tax

The Company's income tax for 2007 was NT$14.5 billion, a 4.8% decrease compared to NT$15.3 billion for 2006. This was mainly due to the decreased tax expense provision, which partially offset the income tax on undistributed earnings.

EBITDA and net income

EBITDA for 2007 increased by 5.2% year-on-year to NT$102.3 billion, resulting in an EBITDA margin of 50.9%, down from 52.2% for 2006. The EBITDA margin decline was derived from lower subsidiary EBITDA. Net income for 2007 was NT$49.5 billion, an increase of 17.5%. The strong increase in net income is primarily attributable to mobile and Internet and data revenue growth, effective cost controls within the parent company and a decreased tax expense.

Capex

Capital expenditures totaled NT$25.1 billon for 2007, of which 76% was for wire line (including fixed-line and Internet and data), 21% was for mobile equipment, and the remainder was for other investments.

Cash Flows

Net cash flow from operations decreased by 12.9% to NT$87.3 billion, as compared to NT$100.2 billion in 2006. This was primarily due to the increase in income tax payments. As of December 31, 2007, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled NT$76.2 billion.

Businesses Performance Highlights:

Internet and Data Services

-- Total HiNet subscribers decreased 5.2% year-on-year due to the

separation of 350k Prepaid Card subscribers from the total HiNet

subscriber base in May 2007. This decline was partially offset by

strong HiNet FTTB subscription growth, with 348k net additions over

the year bringing the total HiNet FTTB subscriber number to 528k on

December 31, 2007.

-- Overall, the Company had 4.25 million broadband subscribers

(including ADSL and FTTB) at the end of 2007, a 5.3% increase in

total broadband subscriptions compared to the end of 2006. By the end

of 2007, the number of ADSL and FTTB subscriptions with a service

speed of greater than 8 Mbps reached 1.21 million, representing 28.5%

of total broadband subscribers.

-- As of the end of 2007, Chunghwa had 394k MOD subscribers, a solid

58.3% year-over-year increase, with 37k new subscriptions added

during the fourth quarter 2007 alone.

-- Total Data revenue were NT$11.5 billion in 2007, a 5.4% increase

compared to 2006. This was primarily attributable to continued

revenue growth from the MOD, HiLink and IDC businesses, and the

consolidation of NT$578 million of Chief Telecom revenue.

Mobile Services

-- As of December 31, 2007, Chunghwa had 8.70 million mobile

subscribers, slightly up quarter-on-quarter by 0.5% compared to

statistics published by the NCC, at the end of 2007, the Company's

positions were 34.5% and 40.3%, respectively.

fourth quarter, with the 14.9% rise boosting the total number of 3G

subscribers to 2.29 million on December 31, 2007. At the end of 2007,

3G ARPU was 63% higher than that of 2G.

-- Mobile VAS revenue for 2007 was NT$5.2 billion, posting an 24.2%

increase year-on-year, with SMS revenue up 28.6% and mobile internet

revenue up 42%.

market position, with fixed-line subscribers totaling 12.95 million.

Recent Updates
