Fitch Rating: 5G Spectrum Win Trims Rating Headroom at Thailand-Based AIS Stcoks—19 Feb 20

Bangkok--19 Feb--Fitch Ratings

Thailand's largest mobile telco, Advanced Info Service Public Company Limited (AIS; BBB+/AA+(tha)/Stable), should have sufficient rating headroom to absorb 5G licences and investments, says Fitch Ratings. AIS has emerged as the biggest winner of the 5G spectrum auction held on 16 February 2020, with 700MHz (2x5MHz), 2.6GHz (100MHz) and 26GHz (1200MHz) spectrum.

Fitch expects AIS's FFO adjusted net leverage to increase to 1.6x in 2020 and 1.5x and 2021, from 1.4x in 2019, assuming the company funds the THB42.1 billion in spectrum payments entirely by debt. However, leverage should remain below our 2.0x threshold above which we would consider negative rating action. In addition, the spread of spectrum payments over a 10-year period should ease immediate pressure on the company's cash flow.

The auction saw aggressive bids by Thai telcos, which drove the spectrum cost of the 700MHz band to USD0.8/MHz per capita, or 95% more than the reserve price. Meanwhile, bidding competition for mid-band 2.6GHz and high-band 26GHz 5G spectrum was moderate, with the final price ending at around 5% above the reserve price. Fitch believes the high demand for 700MHz spectrum was due to the flexible terms on spectrum usage, in light of its tech-neutral policy, which allows telcos to use 700MHz spectrum for 4G services.
