VEON finalizes sale agreement to exit Russia Amsterdam, 13 September 2023 12:45 CET - VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ: VEON, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON), a global digital operator that provides converged connectivity and online services ( the Company ), today announces that it has agreed with the buyer, owned by certain senior members of PJSC Vimpelcom management team, amendments to the sale and purchase agreement in connection with the sale of its Russian operations. The agreed amendments have no material impact on the economic terms of the original transaction announced on 24 November 2022.

With the amendments to the sale agreement, the entire consideration for the sale will be satisfied by transferring the VEON Holdings Bonds acquired by PJSC VimpelCom to a wholly owned subsidiary of VEON Holdings, which will hold such notes until their cancellation or maturity. U.S. and other regulatory approvals have been received for the transfer of approximately 95% of such VEON Holdings Bonds, which will be transferred immediately prior to the closing of the sale. The remaining VEON Holdings Bonds will be transferred as soon as the outstanding regulatory approval is in place, which may occur post-closing. The Company expects all formalities necessary for the closing of the sale to be completed ahead of the 13 October maturity of VEON Holdings October 2023 bonds.

VEON Group CEO Kaan Terzioglu commented: I am pleased with the progress we have achieved in our exit from Russia despite the complexities of the transaction. Our exit strategy is the optimal solution for all our stakeholders - our customers, employees, creditors and investors world-wide. I would like to thank our stakeholders for their patience and continued support.
