TeliaSonera propose change of auditors

TeliaSonera propose change of auditors

In May 2003, the board of directors of TeliaSonera launched an audit
tender process. The aim was to choose one audit firm, best qualified, to
take the audit responsibilities in the TeliaSonera group. Invited to
tender were Deloitte&Touche, Ernst&Young, KPMG and
PricewaterhouseCoopers.

After an extensive process, lead by the audit committee of the board of
TeliaSonera, the board has decided to propose to the shareholders, at
the Annual General meeting to be held on April 28, 2004, to elect
PricewaterhouseCoopers as auditor of TeliaSonera.

The two main shareholders of TeliaSonera, the Swedish and Finnish
States, representing totally 64.4 percent of the shares and votes in
TeliaSonera, have informed that they support the proposal.

The audit committee of the board of TeliaSonera consists of Tapio
Hintikka, Caroline Sundewall and Eva Liljeblom.
