Key regulatory and accounting changes in the 3Q06
Elimination of the Bill & Keep system
With the introduction of the SMP (Personal Mobile Service) as of 2000, Anatel created
the partial Bill & Keep concept, signifying that in calls between mobile operators in the
same registration area (local), one operator is only obliged to pay to the other the
VUM (interconnection rate) if traffic exceeds 55% of the total exchanged traffic.
On July 14, 2006, Anatel (through the Resolution 438) completely eliminated the B&K
system, meaning that mobile company now have to pay termination charges on each
local call to other mobile company.
Anticipated Expenses (Handset Subsidies Deferment)
Starting on the third quarter of 2006, and retroactive to the beginning of 2006, the
Company’s Management decided to change the accounting treatment related to the
subsidies granted on postpaid handset sales, which started to be deferred and
amortized in accordance with the minimum period stipulated in the contract signed by
clients (12 months) so as to better reflect the post-paid segment performance (in the
past, the subsidiaries recognized these costs of subsidized sales directly in the
results). The nominal contractually stipulated fine for the clients that decide to cancel
their subscription or to change to a prepaid handset before the determined period is
higher than the average granted subsidy in each handset sold.

material fact, which are available at our Investor Relations website:

Message from Management
Even in such a highly competitive market as Brazil’s, TIM Participações recorded yet
another quarter of profitable growth.
Our client base grew by 31.1%, from 18.3 million in the third quarter of 2005, to 24.1 million
at the end of September 2006, anticipating the end-of-year target. Net service revenues
moved up 38.4% in the same period, resulting in annual growth of more than 20%,
excluding the impact of the elimination of the Bill & Keep system in the quarter. In addition,
increasing gains in scale led to impressive EBITDA growth of 57% (after deducting the
non-recurring results and the impacts of the Bill & Keep elimination). Net income stood at
R$20.3 million, versus the net loss of R$ 308.4 million recorded in the same three
months last year, thanks to the substantial improvement in operating results.
It is worth pointing out that, right from the beginning; TIM Participações has always invested
heavily in network quality and expansion, systems development, technological upgrading, and
brand strengthening, in order to conquer client satisfaction. As a result, our service platform,
billing systems and call centers are totally integrated and we are the only mobile
telephony company with a nationwide presence. This gives us greater flexibility when it
comes to developing and launching new services and has allowed us to adopt a more aggressive
strategy in the high value segments. We possess a vast portfolio of corporate solutions
and we currently head the business segment.
In 2006, TIM was awarded “Top of Mind”, in view of being the first mobile phone company
remembered by the interviewees in the research conducted by Instituto Datafolha. Moreover,
the Company was also awarded “Best Mobile Phone Operator and Leading Company
in the Mobile Phone Sector in 2006” by Anuário Telecom. Such awards evidence the
power of its brand.
The Company always strives to come up with pioneering products. We were the first
operator to launch BlackBerry, international roaming and special pre-paid plans
(TIM+25 and TIM+5) for high-value clients. More recently, we launched TIM CASA, a
pioneering service in Brazil that complements pre and postpaid plans, which
transforms mobile handsets into house phones.
Yet again, the quarter’s numbers confirm that we are on the right path to sustain
shareholder value creation, while conquering the recognition and satisfaction of our

Operating and Financial Performance
On March 16, TIM Participações S.A. Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting approved the merger
of all TIM Celular S.A.’s shares into TIM Participações S.A., turning the company into a wholly-
owned subsidiary of TIM Participações S.A.. For the purposes of making year-on-year
comparisons, therefore, pro-forma financial statements were drawn up as if the merger had
occurred on January 1st, 2005.
19.8% The Brazilian market closed September/06 with 95.9 million clients, 19.8% up on
market the 80.0 million registered in September/05. National penetration reached 51.2%,
growth in and continues to show potential growth, especially when compared with other countries in
the last 12 Latin America.
Total market net additions in the quarter came to 4.1 million, compared to 4.5 million
in the same period of the previous year. The Company added 1.7 million new clients to
its base in the 3Q06, consolidating its substantial share of sector growth (42.5%
incremental market share).
Market The Company ended the third quarter with 24.1 million clients, 31.3% up year-on-year, and
Share: a market share of 25.1%, versus 22.9% in the 3Q05. The postpaid base grew by
25.1% in the 35.4% in the last twelve months, outperforming the national average. As a result,
3Q06 these clients now account for 20.5% of the total client base, versus 19.9% in the same period

At the end of the quarter, 89.4% of TIM Participações’ clients were using GSM
TIM: the technology. TIM’s GSM coverage reached 91.5% of the country’s urban population, serving
largest GSM 2,394 cities. All municipalities with GSM also have access to GPRS, while 456 have the
additional benefit of EDGE technology. These innovations facilitate access to and encourage
clients to use data and multimedia services, leading to strong VAS revenue growth.
In the 3Q06, the monthly average churn rate reached 2.6%, below the 2.7%
reported in the 3Q05 and stable when compared to 2Q06’s rate, evidencing very
positive results in the high value segment.
4 / 16
TIM once again proved to be a pioneer in innovative telecom technologies. The
Company, in line with its leadership on innovation, recently launched TIM Casa, a
revolutionary concept unprecedented in Brazil, which transforms mobile handsets
into house phones.
In this quarter, TIM continued to offer its commemorative date promotions. As the
Company maintains a nationwide presence, but adopts regional commercial
strategies, it launched two campaigns featuring bonuses in minutes for local intra-
network calls, called “Tarifa Zero” and “Prediletos” (free calls to three TIM
numbers). Such promotions have allowed TIM to leverage on different market
opportunities and to substantially reduce subsidies on prepaid handsets.
The “TIM +25” and “TIM +5” plans, targeting high-value prepaid clients, and the “TIM Chip
Only” promotion, which grants bonuses for recharges made within 48 hours of activation,
continued to fuel the number of prepaid additions.
TIM Participações maintained its strategy of encouraging the use of value-added
services (VAS), which complement the service plans in all segments. In the
quarter, the Company boosted content download (Monophonic and Polyphonic
Sounds, Crazytones and Wallpapers) via their points of sale, so as to turn them
into VAS sales channels. One of the quarterly highlights in the data segment was the TIM
WEB Móvel promotion, designed to meet demand for wireless internet access, especially from
small and medium-sized businesses, and increase the use of data in this segment. In addition,
Nosso Link, which allows clients to sign up for data packages, was extended to the consumer
segment in order to boost the use of data services, especially TIM Connect Fast.
The corporate segment has been the main driver of postpaid growth. The Company
is the leader in mobile telephony solutions for this segment, with more than 2 million
clients and an approximate market share of 30%.
The Company’s marketing strategy has been extremely successful, chiefly due to
efforts on the client acquisition and retention front, backed by continuous
innovation, Customer Profiling Management, customized offers and specialized
sales channels geared to small and medium-sized companies and large

Nota: (1) Consolidated data
Continuous Gross service revenues in the 3Q06 totaled R$ 3.2 billion, 38.0% up year-on-year,
service primarily due to the solid expansion of VAS and voice revenues, in turn pushed up by the
revenue increase in the subscriber base and higher traffic volume.
After taxes and other discounts, net service income stood at R$2.4 billion, versus
R$1.7 billion in the 3Q05, a 38.4% increase year-on-year. Excluding the impact of the Bill
& Keep elimination, revenues would post year-on-year growth of 20.7%, still higher than the
20.0% expansion recorded in the previous quarter.
Gross VAS revenues stood at R$ 217.0 million, 58.4% more than in the 3Q05, confirming the
growth potential of value-added services. A more detailed breakdown of this item shows the
outstanding performance of our pioneering services (MMS, GPRS, downloads, etc) which jointly
accounted for 39% of these revenues, 3 p.p. higher year-on-year.
Gross handset sale revenues totaled R$ 535.3 million, down 3.2% year-on-year.
Sales volume fell by 24.8% (from 1.9 million in 3Q05 to 1.4 million in 3Q06), which evidences
the Company’s focus on reducing its participation in the handset sales market, while
increasing its focus on promotions to the prepaid segment centered on usage and the SIM
Card offer, with “TIM Chip Only”, for example. It is important to note that the quarterly
handset mix has changed due to a big increase in the sales of mid-range and high-end
phones, which include a greater range of options (tri-Band, MP3, MMS, GPRS, EDGE, infra-red,
Bluetooth, browsers, internet, e-mail, Java, etc.), in turn increasing innovative VAS revenues.
6 / 16
The sales of MMS-enabled handsets grew by 69% in the period, while sales of those equipped
with Java and a built-in camera moved up by 75% and 133% respectively.
Net handset-sale revenues, deducting taxes and other discounts, stood at R$351.5
million in the 3Q06, or 6.3% down on the same quarter last year.
Eliminating Average revenue per user (ARPU) in the 3Q06 totaled R$ 34.4 million, 13.9% up
the Bill & on the 2Q06. Eliminating the effects of the extinction of the Bill & Keep system on
revenues, ARPU would reach R$30.0, stable when compared to the 2Q06 (R$30.2
stable QoQ million), demonstrating the high quality of the customers acquired in this quarter.
Operating Costs and Expenses
Network and interconnection costs stood at R$ 815.1 million, versus R$418.1 million
nnection cost in the 3Q05. The upturn in costs in the period was chiefly due to re-introduction of full
impacted by interconnection regime in July 14 when the Company began to pay interconnection charges on
Bill & Keep each mobile to mobile local call to other operators, and to the substantial increase in traffic
elimination (+36.5%). Excluding the impact of the elimination of the Bill & Keep system,
network and interconnection costs would have totaled close to R$ 498.0 million
The cost of goods sold – basically comprising cell-phone sales – totaled R$335.2
million. The quarter-over-quarter and year-on-year reduction was the result of: (i)
the deferral of the postpaid handset subsidies relative to the first nine months,
which amounted R$ 135.9 million; and (ii) the reduction in prepaid subsidies
accompanied by the pushing of the SIM Card sales, with the “TIM Chip Only”
promotion for prepaid handsets.
It is important to mention that the deferral of handset subsidies applies solely to
the postpaid segment, in which clients sign an agreement to remain with the
operator for at least 12 months and are fined in case of cancellation.
Selling and marketing expenses came to R$559.1 million, 7.1% and 4.6% less
than in the 3Q05 and 2Q06, respectively, primarily due to a less aggressive handset
pricing, partially offset by more acquisitions in the postpaid segment.
Subscriber acquisition costs (SAC) stood at R$ 146, 5.2% and 13.1% lower than in
SAC : strong the 3Q05 and 2Q06, respectively, largely due to the Company’s policy of drastically
handset reducing subsidies on prepaid handset sales, which accounted for 79.6% of the
subsidies quarter’s gross additions.
General and administrative expenses (G&A) - excluding depreciation, amortization
and personnel expenses - totaled R$ 98.9 million, 0.8% down quarter-over-quarter and
12.9% less year-on-year, thanks to reduced outsourcing expenses, in line with the Company’s
strategy of controlling fixed costs and expenses tightly.
Personnel expenses amounted to R$ 153.7 million, versus R$ 130.9 million in the
3Q05 and R$ 149.1 million in the 2Q06, pushed up by interim staff increases, in turn
caused by improved customer service and client relations, as well as pre and post-sales
Bad debt expenses totaled R$ 126.3 million, accounting for 3.4% of total gross
revenues versus 3.6% in the 3Q05 and 3.5% in the 2Q06.
7 / 16
Other net operating revenues came to R$ 19.0 million, versus R$7.7 million in the
3Q05. Other operating revenues basically comprise fines paid by clients related to past due
payments or service cancellations, unpaid dividends, etc. and are partially offset by expenses
with provisions for contingencies and various taxes on financial transactions. It is worth
noting that the reduction over the 2Q06 was due to the booking of R$ 52.3 million
from the recovery of PIS and COFINS taxes, following a judicial verdict in favor of
the subsidiary TIM Nordeste S.A.
Third-quarter EBITDA (operating result before net financial expenses, excluding depreciation
and amortization) totaled R$ 676.7 million, accompanied by an EBITDA margin of
24.6%, 7.9 pp up year-on-year.
In this quarter EBITDA was impacted by the deferment of postpaid handset
subsidies and by the elimination of the Bill & Keep system:
Excluding the non-recurring deferral of handset subsidies, pro-forma EBITDA for the
quarter came to R$540.7 million (+54.0% over the 3Q05) with a margin of 19.7%;
excluding the impact of the Bill & Keep system elimination, adjusted EBITDA, for a
comparison purpose, would be R$552.0 million, with a margin of 22.6% (+5.9 pp YoY)
Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding both the above-mentioned impacts, confirms
our efforts to combine strong top-line growth with healthy margin expansion.

Depreciation and amortization expenses amounted to R$ 577.8 million, 18.4%

infrastructure expansion and improvement. This figure included R$ 62.0 million relative to the
TIM Nordeste S.A. and TIM Celular S.A. concessions, which expire in 2013 and 2016,
8 / 16
EBIT (operating result before interest and taxes) stood at R$98.9 million, a R$235.8
million improvement over the negative R$136.9 reported in the 3Q05. The EBIT
margin was 3.6% positive, up by 10.1 p.p. year-on-year.
Excluding the re-classification of handset subsidies and the elimination of the Bill
& Keep system, the EBIT for the quarter would be negative by R$25.5 million, a R$
111.4 million improvement when compared to the same quarter of last year.
Net Financial Result
Net financial expenses totaled R$79.9 million for the quarter, 36.5% higher than the negative
R$125.7 million reported in the 3Q05, primarily due to the reduction in financial costs average
and the improved results from exchange rate variation.
On September 30, 2006, gross debt stood at R$ 2.882 billion, 1.3% down on the
R$ 2,919 billion recorded at the end of the previous quarter, mostly comprising long-
term loans and financing from the BNDES (National Development Bank) and the BNB (Banco
do Nordeste do Brasil). Cash and cash equivalents amounted to R$ 1.1 billion, mainly
made up of highly liquid financial investments.
Positive At the close of the third quarter, the Company’s net debt (total debt less cash and cash
operating equivalents) totaled R$ 1.8 billion, remaining stable over the previous three months. Free
cash flow operating cash flow was R$147.3 million positive, a significant improvement on
the 1Q06 (-R$1.25 billion), 2Q06 (-R$39 million) and 3Q05 (-R$124.6 million).
Net income for the quarter totaled R$20.3 million, a R$322.3 million improvement
over the net loss of R$308.4 million loss recorded in the same period last year,
thanks to the higher operating result and the positive impact of the deferral of handset
subsidies relative to the first nine months, totaling R$135.9 million. On a normalized basis,
excluding the re-classification of handset subsidies, the net loss for the quarter
would be R$115.6 million, still evidencing a substantial improvement over the
same quarter of last year.
Third-quarter investments amounted to R$ 374.4 million, 44% of which allocated to
the expansion and improvement of the GSM network’s capacity and quality. Thanks to strong
traffic growth (+36.5% year-on-year), 20% of capex went to developing and improving IT
systems and 36% to the comodato program, part of the Company’s expansion and loyalty-
building strategy for the corporate segment and others.
