Over the past three years, we have transformed our companies into digital operators and demonstrated that emerging markets are in fact an exciting growth opportunity for global investors. Our aspirations from 2023 through 2027 set the bar higher as we aim for 16%-19% CAGR growth in our Group revenues, 19%-22% CAGR growth in our Group EBITDA and close to USD 1 billion in equity free cash flow generation. As our investors will hear at our Capital Markets Day, we are optimistic about the potential of our markets, and confident in the foundations that we built with our digital operator strategy to capture wallet share. Furthermore, we are also set to unlock greater growth opportunities with augmented intelligence as we launch our AI1440 focus, said Kaan Terzioglu, VEON Group CEO. We remain focused on turning this operational success vision into investor value with further steps in delayering our business and enhancing the accessibility of our assets to local investors.
