MegaFon’s long-term foreign and local currency issuer credit ratings downgraded by S&P Global

Moscow, Russian Federation (29 August 2018) — Public Joint Stock Company “MegaFon” (LSE: MFON), a pan Russian operator of digital opportunities (“MegaFon” or the “Company”), announces that its long-term foreign and local currency issuer credit ratings have been downgraded to “BB+” from “BBB-” with a “Stable” outlook by S&P Global rating agency (“S&P”).

The rating action follows the announcement by MegaFon Investments (Cyprus) Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, regarding the results of its tender offer to purchase for cash issued and outstanding ordinary shares of MegaFon and Regulation S and Rule 144A Global Depositary Receipts as previously announced at: https://corp.megafon.com/investors/news/capital_market_releases/20180823-1301.html.

S&P lowered its long-term issuer credit ratings on MegaFon since the tender offer is mostly debt-financed which, coupled with higher investments in 2018, led to an increase in the Company's debt.
