The price range has been set at USD 10.50 to USD 13.00 per global depositary

commence on 12 December.

Kcell’s market capitalization is valued at approximately USD 2.1 billion to
USD 2.6 billion on the basis of the price range.

“We are very pleased to have come this far in the process. Kcell is an
important part of our global operations and one of the most successful
subsidiaries of TeliaSonera. A listing of Kcell will create value for our
shareholders through higher liquidity and visibility, as well as through a
retained long-term strategic control,” says Lars Nyberg, President and CEO.

The offering consists of a sale by TeliaSonera of 50 million shares, including
the GDRs, representing 25% of Kcell’s share capital.

TeliaSonera’s effective economic ownership of Kcell is currently 86.9% and
following a successful IPO would be estimated to 61.9%.
