Letter from the Chairman of the Board of Management

Dear shareholders,

Dear friends of the Company,

2020 was a complicated, stressful, and demanding year to say the least. Even now, we must continue to physically distance from other people where once we sought social togetherness. We wear masks as we go about our daily activities, limit our contact with other people to the bare minimum, and many of us are working from home. Week after week, the situation is putting enormous strain on us all.

But while the effects of the coronavirus pandemic are causing many businesses to feel the pinch, Deutsche Telekom is prospering. Even better: 2020 was a record-breaking year for us, with the highest revenue in our Company's history. I believe there are two main reasons for this:

1. We help in the crisis. Because people want to stay in touch and businesses want to keep working. Without our stable networks, many businesses would have struggled with the transition to remote working.

2. Our employees. Our tech teams, who are out in the field visiting customers at home, looking into their lines or activating fast internet in the street cabinets. The people in the shops serving our customers. And everyone else also working for our success, whether from home or the office. To them, I would like to say a huge thank you for their valuable contribution under such difficult circumstances. Because it is all thanks to them that we remain an anchor of stability throughout the pandemic with infrastructure that society can rely on, day in, day out.

Let's take a look at the situation at our Company right now. After all, the past twelve months were game-changing for Deutsche Telekom, irrespective of coronavirus.

Our net revenue took on a whole new dimension. That is no exaggeration. For the first time ever, we broke the 100-billion-euro revenue barrier in a single financial year. This is an historic achievement. The additional revenue from the business combination with mobile carrier Sprint in the United States was a decisive factor. But we are also growing organically. Our earnings were also up, both in the United States and in business on this side of the Atlantic. Adjusted EBITDA AL (i.e., adjusted EBITDA taking account of depreciation of right-of-use assets and interest expenses on lease liabilities) was right on the mark for 2020. Free cash flow AL was well above our guidance. The figures now presented demonstrate very clearly that Deutsche Telekom is still on a growth course. And we want to keep it that way.

In the United States, the underpinnings are already in place: following the business combination with Sprint, our U.S. subsidiary T‑Mobile US is now well-positioned to capture the #1 spot on the most important mobile communications market worldwide. The new T‑Mobile US joins the two major rivals Verizon and AT&T in the big league, shattering the duopoly previously enjoyed by these two companies. Not only are we quickly closing the gap to our competitors, but we have already outstripped AT&T in terms of customer numbers and mobile service revenues. The business combination has significantly improved our spectrum holding. Today, we already cover more than 100 million people in the United States with super-fast Ultra Capacity 5G alone. We are set to reach up to 200 million U.S. citizens with coverage in this spectrum band by the end of 2021 and thus offer them exactly what they expect of us: the best 5G network nationwide. That is THE basis for taking forward our successful Un-carrier strategy.

Offering the best-quality networks is and remains our ambition - both in the United States and in Europe. And we are willing to invest record amounts every year to make this happen, pouring EUR 17 billion primarily into our global networks in the year just ended, and EUR 5.5 billion of this in Germany alone.

For a long time, our stated goal was to become the Leading European Telco. We have now not only achieved this goal, but were able to further consolidate and extend our position even given the difficult market environment and the negative impact of coronavirus in 2020. Against this backdrop, we are particularly proud to have enhanced the value of our brand, too. Our Magenta T is worth almost 30 % more today than it was just one year ago. A brand value of USD 51.1 billion puts us ahead of other venerable companies, such as Volkswagen and BMW, and 23rd in a global ranking - directly behind Disney.
