It has come to the attention of Tele2's management that a rumour that Tele2 will make a bid for Millicom is currently being circulated in the markets.
It has also been claimed that Tele2 representatives have been calling analysts to sound out their reaction towards a potential bid for Millicom by Tele2.
These rumours are without foundation and are completely untrue.
