Comments from José María Álvarez-Pallete, Chairman and CEO:

"Third quarter results reflected the solid execution of the main strategic priorities set for the year. Thus, our organic growth is consistent and sustainable, highlighting the improvement in revenue growth trends and the increased OIBDA, despite the negative impact of the new regulation in Europe. Additionally, transformation remained key and the focus on digitalisation amongst the Company's different operating areas has contributed to increase our differentiation and become more efficient, and will enable us to pave a new way to interact with our customers through cognitive intelligence while improving resource allocation. Finally, we continued strengthening our balance sheet position with a clear advance in de-leveraging the Company thanks to growing cash-flow generation".

 - Reconciliation included in the 
  excel spreadsheets. 
 Notes: 
 - 2016 and 2017 reported figures include hyperinflationary adjustments in Venezuela in both 
  years. 
 - OIBDA and OI are presented before brand fees and management fees. 
 - Telxius financials are fully reported in Other Companies & Eliminations in T. Group since 
  1 January, 2017, reflecting the final integration into Telxius of the mobile communications 
  towers transferred from T. España, T. Deutschland, T. Brasil and T. Hispanoamérica 
  segments and the international submarine fiber optic cable (which was already being reported 
  within Other Companies and Eliminations). As a consequence, 2017 reported figures for these 
  segments follow the same criteria. In addition, 2016 segment results have been revised to 
  reflect the different dates of asset integration into Telxius, affecting T. España (since 
  1 January, 2016), T. Deutschland (since 1 May, 2016), T. Brasil (since 1 April, 2016) and 
  T. Hispanoamérica (T. Perú since 1 April 2016 and T. Chile since 1 May 2016). Organic 
  y-o-y changes on segments reflect all the charges related to the towers transferred to Telxius 
  since 1 January 2016. The results of the segments do not include intra-group capital gains 
  resulting from the transfer of towers to Telxius. 
 - Organic criteria: Assumes constant exchange rates as of 2016 (average FX in 2016), excludes 
  the impact from hyperinflation in Venezuela in both years and considers constant perimeter 
  of consolidation. In OIBDA and OI terms, excludes write-downs, capital gains/losses from the 
  sale of companies, tower sales, material non-recurring impacts and restructuring costs. CapEx 
  also excludes investment in spectrum.
