Total operating expenditure in 2010 increased by 35% (BDT 970 Crore) from 2009 mainly due to higher subsidy (BDT 455 crore), commissions (BDT 116 Crore), SIM card and cost of device (BDT 108 Crore), rent, electricity and maintenance cost (BDT 90 Crore) and revenue sharing (BDT 43 Crore). EPS of 2010 (BDT 7.93) was lower than that of 2009 (BDT 12.08), yet it is considered reasonable in the competitive environment where SIM tax has restricted EPS growth.
