Extraordinary General Meeting
Tele2 AB (publ) today announced that the Company's Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of shareholders held today in Stockholm voted to support the resolution on the offer of reclassification of Class A shares into Class B shares.
The EGM approved the Board of Directors' proposal to resolve that holders of Class A shares shall be entitled to reclassify their Class A shares into Class B shares, upon which time one Class A share shall be eligible for reclassification into one Class B share. Applications for reclassification shall be made between 26 August 2009 and 31 December 2009. The reclassification request may include some or all of the shareholder's Class A shares and should either state the number of Class A shares that shall be reclassified, or the fraction (stated in percentage with no more than two decimals) of the total number of votes in the company that the Class A shareholder wants to hold after the reclassification. An application for reclassification shall be made in writing to the Board of Directors, which will thereafter handle the issue of reclassification.
Such a request shall be made on a special form which is available on Tele2's website (www.tele2.com) or may be ordered from Linklaters Advokatbyrå AB per e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, by telephone +46 8 665 4120 or in writing to the following adress: "Reclassification Tele2", Att: David Lillo, Linklaters Advokatbyrå AB, Regeringsgatan 67, P.O.
