MegaFon and VEON complete the division of Euroset

Moscow, Russian Federation (26 February 2018) — Public Joint Stock Company “MegaFon” (LSE: MFON), a pan-Russian operator of digital solutions (“MegaFon” or the “Company”), and VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ: VEON, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON), a leading global provider of connectivity and internet services headquartered in Amsterdam and serving more than 240 million customers, announce the completion of the transactions aimed at ending their Euroset joint venture, which operates the largest chain of mobile telecom retail outlets in Russia (“Euroset”).

The agreement to end the joint venture was announced earlier at: https://corp.megafon.com/investors/news/capital_market_releases/20170712-0830.html. As a result of the transactions required to effect this, MegaFon has acquired PJSC VimpelCom’s 50% interest in Euroset, resulting in MegaFon owning 100% of Euroset, including all its assets and liabilities. At the same time, PJSC VimpelCom, the Russian subsidiary of VEON, has acquired half of Euroset’s retail stores amounting to approximately 1,800 stores, and will pay RUB 1.25 billion, subject to certain adjustments, as its share of Euroset’s outstanding obligations.

Sergey Soldatenkov, CEO of MegaFon, said: “We highly appreciate our partnership with VEON in Russian retail over the last five years. We believe that our division of the Euroset assets will allow our companies to follow our own strategies in retail, resulting in optimization of mobile distribution in Russia. MegaFon already owns an extensive mono-brand retail network. Accordingly, we will continue to pursue our own retail strategy focused, inter alia, on retention of our presence in multi-brand retail network. We believe we will be able to benefit from using that channel to acquire high-value digital clients and maximize the life-time value of our subscribers through improved quality of service and digital products based on better understanding of the client’s needs.”
