Having already won the contract in Q2'2021 to broadcast all games of the top national league until 2027, the sports broadcaster will also present more than 150 live games of the world's best and most glamorous ice hockey league from the beginning of October. With this strengthening of the MySports Pro package, Sunrise UPC is continuing to drive the channel's success story forward. Since the channel started broadcasting in 2017, MySports has been able to increase the number of subscribers for the Pro offer by around 30% annually. ?

Financial results

Sunrise UPC's Q3 revenue of CHF 762.5 million on an adjusted basis is in line with the previous year. This is mainly due to growth in consumer mobile revenues from increased postpaid service revenues and the B2B wholesale mobile business. The individual businesses contributed differently to the overall result in Q3'2021: mobile CHF 316.4 million (+2% YoY), fixed (including Internet, TV and phone) CHF 310.1 million (-2,2% YoY) and B2B CHF 130.7 million (+0.9% YoY).

The Adjusted EBITDA increased by +3.3% YoY on an adjusted basis to CHF 303.7 million. This includes CHF 3.4 million of costs to capture2). Quarter-on-quarter improvement in the Adjusted EBITDA of CHF 32 million was supported by higher revenues, mainly from the consumer mobile segment, and lower costs due to synergies.

The rebased Adjusted EBITDA less P&E Additions3) increased by +13.1% YoY on an adjusted basis. This was the case despite the negative impact caused by CHF 24.1 million costs to capture2) and was driven by strong continued growth in the customer mobile segment, lower costs due to synergies and reduced capex investment.

New terms of employment, uniform pension fund plan and commitment to complete reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030

Sunrise UPC continued its rapid integration and, in close cooperation with the syndicom trade union, concluded the new employment conditions and announced the harmonized pension fund plan to be valid as of January 1, 2022.?

Liberty Global is continuing its commitment to more sustainability and energy efficiency, with a focus on energy consumption, CO2 emissions and avoidance of e-waste. Liberty Global and its subsidiary Sunrise UPC have therefore pledged to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions directly or indirectly produced by the company (scope 1 and 2) down to zero by 2030. Looking ahead, the goal is to sustainably avoid even the indirect emissions that arise over the course of the entire value chain (scope 3). The company intends to present a detailed plan for reaching this last goal around the middle of next year.

1) Rebase results are consistent with those as presented by our parent company. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as supplement to, and not a substitute to U.S.GAAP measures included in our parent company's financial statements, please see the UPC Holding Q3 2021 fixed income release for definitions and reconciliations as applicable.

2) Costs to capture generally include incremental, third-party operating and capital related costs that are directly associated with integration activities, restructuring activities, and certain other costs associated with aligning an acquiree to our business processes to derive synergies. These costs are necessary to combine the operations of a business being acquired (or joint venture being formed) with ours or are incidental to the acquisition. As a result, costs to capture may include certain (i) operating costs that are included in Adjusted EBITDA, (ii) capital related costs that are included in property and equipment additions and Adjusted EBITDA less P&E Additions and (iii) certain integration related restructuring expenses that are not included within Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA less P&E Additions. Given the achievement of synergies occurs over time, certain of our costs to capture are recurring by nature, and generally incurred within a few years of completing the transaction.

3) Based on a comment from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission SEC, Liberty Global has changed the previously used term ?OFCF? to ?Adjusted EBITDA less property and equipment (P&E) Additions? from Q3'21.
