Information on investigations at TeliaSonera’s Kazakh operator Kcell

Today Kcell’s board announced that initial investigations have revealed that a number of the Company’s external supplier contracts were entered into in breach of the Company's own internal policies and procedures. To date there has been no indication that any of the matters under investigation will have any material effect on the Company's balance sheet or on its results of operations. The content of the announcement can be viewed as a concrete result of TeliaSonera’s expressed focus on strengthening the corporate governance and internal control of its majority-owned Eurasian operations.

Kcell is listed on the stock exchanges in London and Almaty. See Kcell’s site at for more information.
