TeliaSonera AB's subsidiary Sonera Corporation applies for de-listing of
its share and 1999A warrant from the Helsinki Exchanges

The Board of Directors of Sonera Corporation has today decided to apply
for removal of the company's share (HEX: SRA1V) and 1999A warrant from
the main list of the Helsinki Exchanges.

The application for removal of the company's share has been submitted to
Helsinki Securities and Derivatives Exchanges, Clearing House Ltd.
Consequently, the Sonera share and 1999A warrant may be transferred to
the surveillance list. The removal of the share will be effected
subsequent to TeliaSonera AB having acquired ownership to all
outstanding shares of Sonera Corporation and the listing committee of
Helsinki Securities and Derivatives Exchanges, Clearing House Ltd having
decided to remove the share from the list.

It is the intention that the application for removal of the company's
1999A warrant will be submitted so that the share and 1999A warrant may
be removed from the list simultaneously.

The de-listing of the Sonera share from the Helsinki Exchanges is
expected to take place by mid-April.
