Telefónica Deutschland acquires 90 MHz spectrum in 5G spectrum auction

As part of the 5G frequency auction which just concluded in Germany, Telefónica Deutschland acquired a total of 90 MHz spectrum at a total cost of EUR 1.425 billion. The acquired spectrum breaks down as follows:

- 2 paired blocks in the 2.1 GHz band

- 7 unpaired blocks in the 3.6 GHz band

Including the spectrum already owned, Telefónica Deutschland now has mobile spectrum of ~310 MHz (through 2025) and thus a highly competitive frequency position overall.

The Federal Network Agency will formally allocate the spectrum with effect of 1 January 2021 for 1 block of the 2.1 GHz spectrum and 1 January 2026 for the other 1 block. The 3.6 GHz spectrum will be made available gradually over the next few years and fully from 2022 onwards. All of the acquired spectrum will mature in 2040.

Due to its physical propagation characteristics, the newly acquired spectrum will be initially used to supply urban areas and industrial sites with 5G, delivering high data rates and low latency times. 5G technology also enables much more effective capacity management, so that network performance and overall capacity will increase as the standard becomes more widespread.

Consumers will benefit from 5G as the availability of related devices increases in the market. Until then, German mobile customers will also benefit from improved mobile broadband coverage through the ongoing intensive rollout of 4G.

Already in 2018, Telefónica Deutschland completed its network consolidation and connected an additional 6,700 LTE stations; LTE population coverage stands now at around 90%. We intend to continue with our intense rollout effort with another 10,000 additional LTE sites by year-end 2019.

In addition, we will continue to roll out fibre in the backhaul by means of a variety of co-operations. We confirm our target of reaching ~70% of fibre penetration in the backhaul by 2022.

We fully expect to continue to benefit from our successful integration effort between 2015 and 2018. Having proven our execution ability, we look forward to building on these achievements and our established market position. We are now entering the next chapter of our transformation journey in the form of our Digital4Growth programme between 2019 and 2022. We will continue to work relentlessly to becoming Germany's Mobile Customer and Digital Champion.

Finally, we confirm our full-year outlook for 2019, our mid-term guidance including a Capex envelope of approximately EUR 1bn and our dividend policy of a high payout ratio to FCF.

Aves One AG: Kursziel 13,60 €

Die Aves One AG ist auch in der Corona-Krise als Bestandshalter von langlebigen Logistik-Assets mit langfristigen Mietverträgen gut aufgestellt. Das Unternehmen hat als Guidance einen Umsatz und ein EBITDA mindestens auf Vorjahresniveau verkündet. Unseres Erachtens sollte dies auch ohne Zukäufe gut machbar sein, da die im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr 2019 erworbenen Assets bereits zu einer höheren Umsatzbasis führen sollten. Auf Basis unseres DCF-Modells haben wir ein Kursziel in Höhe von 13,60 € ermittelt und vergeben ein KAUFEN-Rating.
