BMI View: We maintain our core forecast for the Bulgarian telecommunications market and have not made significant revisions in this quarterly update. We retain our view that there will be very limited organic growth in mobile market subscription figures out to 2020. The market will witness growth in terms of 3G/ 4G uptake as data usage surges in the country and this trend is expected to continue throughout the course of our forecast period. Mobiltel's recent acquisition of fixed services provider Blizoo will further boost the operator's competition with fixed services giant Vivacom. This will benefit consumers, as the introduction of a wider range of products and services over faster networks will be available. Telenor, the third player in the market, will have to become more dynamic in terms of competition and product offerings. We do not presently see any real opportunities for the new fourth mobile operator, Max Telecom.

The new owner also agreed to clear off the EUR400mn debt from the company's balance sheet. The deal was ratified in January 2016 and will allow the company to bundle a broad range of services together.
