TELUS anticipates its common shares will commence trading on NYSE February 4 
VANCOUVER, Jan. 31, 2013 /CNW/ - As previously announced, TELUS' 
court-approved exchange of its non-voting shares for common shares on a 
one-for-one basis will become effective at 12:01 a.m. (PDT) on February 4, 
The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has now confirmed that it anticipates TELUS 
common shares will commence trading under the symbol "TU" at the start of 
trading on February 4, 2013 (previously announced as on or about February 5). 
Non-voting shares will be delisted from the NYSE before the opening of trading 
on February 4, 2013. TELUS anticipates its non-voting shares will be delisted 
from the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), at the close of business on or about 
February 8, 2013. The additional common shares issued in exchange for TELUS' 
non-voting shares will be listed on the TSX at open of business on or about 
February 11, 2013 and commence trading under the symbol "T," the same symbol 
under which common shares currently trade. 
Computershare will mail DRS advice forms representing the new common shares to 
the holders of record of non-voting shares as of February 13, 2013, shortly 
after that date. Non-voting shares will be common shares at the effective time 
and holders of certificates formerly representing non-voting shares do not 
need to take any further action as the DRS form advice will represent the 
total number of common shares received upon the exchange. This will allow 
shareholders to hold their new common shares in "book-entry" form without 
having a physical share certificate.
