TELUS share exchange effective today

Common shares start trading on NYSE 
VANCOUVER, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - The exchange of TELUS' non-voting shares for 
common shares on a one-for-one basis pursuant to a court-approved plan of 
arrangement became effective at 12:01 a.m. PT today. 
TELUS' non-voting shares were delisted from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) 
before the market opened and its common shares commenced trading under the 
symbol "TU" at the start of trading today. TELUS currently 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 and the common shares 
issued today in exchange for the non-voting shares will commence trading on 
the TSX on or about February 11, 2013. 
Registered shareholders who hold certificates formerly representing non-voting 
shares do not need to take any further action. A DRS (Direct Registration 
System) advice form will be mailed to registered shareholders and represent 
the total number of common shares received upon the exchange. This will allow 
registered shareholders to hold their new common shares in "book-entry" form 
without having a physical share certificate. 
TELUS expects its agent Computershare will mail the DRS advice forms to 
registered shareholders of former non-voting shares on February 13, 2013. 
Registered shareholders who want to sell or transfer such shares and have not 
yet received their DRS advice should contact Computershare by telephone at 
1-800-558-0046 (toll-free in North America), (514)-982-7129 (outside of North 
America) or by email at Beneficial holders who have 
questions concerning when their account will reflect the common shares 
exchanged today for their non-voting shares should contact their investment 
advisor or stock broker.
