With the growth of all financials indicators we strengthened the leadership position in all market segments and consolidated the overall telco market. We also made our regional move and delivered successful results in doing business outside of the domestic market. During the previous five years HT also became one of the largest investors in Croatia, as well as one of the most significant employers, contributing through its operations to the overall development of the country.
