  • 2. Operational Highlights In terms of number of access, the Company estimates that its market share at the end of the second quarter of 2002 was 64%. The Penetration rate in the region at the end of June 2002 was estimated in 10.3%, compared to the Penetration rate in Brasil of approximately 17.9% (30.4 million lines). In June 26, 2002, the 3rd operator (Telemar PCS – Oi), started to offer wireless services, but it’s to early to asses the impact they have had in our concession area. Tele Nordeste Celular was able to determine that since the beginning of Oi’s operations, they have only managed to obtain prepaid clients. As of June 30, 2002, Tele Nordeste Celular’s operating companies had 1,842,299 clients, of which 747,754 (40.6%) were post-paid clients and 1,094,545 (59.4%) were prepaid clients. Commercial activities during the second quarter of 2002 resulted in the consolidated gross addition of 146,786 clients, of which 118,218, or 80.5%, were prepaid and 28,568, or 19.5% were post-paid. Consolidated net additions during the second quarter of 2002 totaled 33,593 clients, all prepaid, as a result of the disconnection of 13,358 clients due to non-payment, with objective to reduce the company’s bad debt expense. Excluding theses users, the consolidated net additions for the quarter totaled 46,951 clients. Since the beginning of the year, consolidated gross addition were 293,629 clients, of which 239,074, or 81.4% were prepaid and 54,555, or 18.6% were post paid. Consolidated net additions during the first semester of 2002 were 84,639 clients, all prepaid. During the second quarter of 2002, bad debt was 3.5% of gross revenue, compared to 4.1% during the first quarter 2002, and 4.2% during the second quarter of 2001. In the first semester of 2002, bad debt was 3.8% of gross revenue, compared to 4.5% for the same period of 2001. The Corporate clients base has been continuously increasing, mostly due to the “Intelligent Network”, one of the most important tools used to promote this type of growth. The Intelligent Network is a new concept in mobile business communications. It is a service designed for companies that permits the creation of groups of users, promotes the improvement of the mobile communication and permits the control of generated and received calls. During the second quarter of 2002, we launched a Mother’s Day Promotion with special offers, offering low prices on handsets and special tariffs plans, retaining the customer for at least twelve months in the network. To keep investing in the creation of mechanisms that give our customer benefits and comfort, TIM SHOP was lunched as the first E-commerce site in the region. The TIM SHOP is one more point of contact between TIM and their customers, given its easy and fast access. The customer whose accesses TIM’s website: www.timnordeste.com.br can purchase all handsets models and choose between prepaid and post-paid systems by using a credit card. The handset will be delivered within 72 hours in the main cities and within five days in the country. As a way to further improve customer service through the Call Center, the company launched a Campaign called TIM Combate. This campaign involves client retention and those call center attendants that retain the most customers and achieve set goals win prizes. Also, during Korea/Japan World Cup, TIM Net.com provided news such as “behind the scenes” and facts about previous World Cups as well as statistics from the games. The site also provided www.timnordeste.com.br 2

These reductions when compared to the last quarters of 2001, were due to the increase of prepaid clients to our customer base.
