 Telenor : Large mobile services contract signed with Federation of Norwegian
                          Agricultural Co-operatives

Fornebu, January 16th 2013 - Telenor has won the contract to supply mobile
services to AgriKjøp. The agreement is worth NOK 180 million over three years.

AgriKjøp is a joint purchasing organisation for the companies in the
Federation of Norwegian Agricultural Co-operatives, consisting of around 100
different member companies, including subsidiaries. The contract is an
extension to an existing framework agreement with Telenor. It includes greater
standardisation and simplification of services provided, along with increased
functionality for member companies.

"AgriKjøp consists of a variety of different companies, from major industrial
concerns to small companies, who have different needs and challenges. The new
agreement gives the companies a simpler solution with a package of voice and
data services, and also facilitates the use of other communications solutions
from Telenor and their partners. At the same time, the agreement means less
administration and reduced costs for our member companies," says Gunnar
Vandvik, Director for Agreements and System Development at AgriKjøp AS.

In addition, AgriKjøp and Telenor intend to add new services to the present
telephony framework, including the unified communications service 'Telenor
Samordnet kommunikasjon' and Lync.

New Opportunities for Cooperation "AgriKjøp is an exciting and important
customer that challenges Telenor in many areas and this agreement opens up new
opportunities for cooperation. We are very pleased to be part of the continued
efforts to add value to the members of the Federation of Norwegian
Agricultural Co-operatives through delivering services that strengthen their
market competitiveness," says Bjørn Ivar Moen, Telenor Norway's manager of the
business market.

"A long term agreement over three years gives us the opportunity to
concentrate our efforts on offering good solutions and consultancy that are
valuable for the individual member companies," says Moen.
