MegaFon announces changes in the holding structure by its major shareholder

Moscow, Russian Federation (8 August 2018) — Public Joint Stock Company “MegaFon” (LSE: MFON), a pan-Russian operator of digital opportunities (“MegaFon” or the “Company”), has been notified by USM Holdings Limited, the Company’s major shareholder, which indirectly owns a 56.32% interest in MegaFon, about the simplification of the chain of ownership for the said interest.

Previously, USM Holdings Limited, a legal entity, incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Cyprus, held its interest in MegaFon through a number of intermediary companies, most of which were formed or registered in offshore locations, with the immediate holder of the MegaFon shares being a company incorporated in the Russian Federation, namely, AF Telecom Holdings LLC. USM Holdings Limited has now informed the Company that it has transferred its 100% stake in AF Telecom Holdings LLC to USM Holding Company LLC, a company incorporated in the Russian Federation.

Accordingly, as a result of the transaction, the ultimate beneficial owners of MegaFon now hold their interests in MegaFon through two Russian companies, rather than through a network of offshore companies.
