Business Description: iiNet Limited (IIN) is a DSL Internet Service Provider (ISP) supporting 1.7 million broadband, telephony, mobile and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) services to a range of residential, regional and corporate customers across Australia.
Strategy Analysis: IIN will continue its commitment to ADSL broadband, supported by the installation of its own DSLAMs, which provides a lower cost base than its competitors. Despite the National Broadband Network, rollout of its own DSLAMs will continue on a selective basis. Other strategies include: Brand launch campaigns for brand awareness, customer service and additional products such as VoIP, internet package and IPTV.
iiNET reported NPAT of $31.94m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $473.6m, up 30% from the same period last year. The increase in revenue was attributable to the following: continued expansion of the services provided to existing residential and business broadband customers; the acquisition of the TransACT Group on 30 November 2011; and the acquisition of Internode on 31 January 2012. Diluted EPS was 19.7 cents compared to 9.5 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $71.66m compared to $22.74m last year. The interim dividend declared was 8.0 cents compared with 6.0 cents last year.
