The company also expects a reduction of fees from tougher competition in the mobile segment. / Neutral, our model predicts the decrease in revenues from mobile termination charges by about 20 percent to 2.04 billion.

The improvement is said to generate additional savings and improved margins should also help the planned projects in the IT services segment in the second half. / Neutral, decrease in OIBDA margin in 1H12 was larger than we originally anticipated, however, in accordance with the indication of management waiting for a better 2H12 /.
