Yours was the best answer given; nonetheless, I did not use operate because the author of the contract is using operar and explotar within the same context and sentences; as a result, I went the literal route by using exploit and used preposition from instead of for, as in the sentence direct operating losses from competing services.

Thanks to all colleagues who took a crack at this one!
