Kim Ignatius, Executive Vice President and CFO, leaves TeliaSonera

Kim Ignatius, Executive Vice President and CFO of TeliaSonera AB, is leaving his
current position after eight years with the company to take up a similar
position outside TeliaSonera.

“The past eight years in the company have been exciting and rewarding. I see my
new position as an interesting opportunity to utilize and build on the
experience from telecommunications, but also as a chance for further personal
development. While I am now returning to Helsinki and my family, I would like to
send my sincere thanks to all my colleagues at TeliaSonera,” says Kim Ignatius.

“Kim Ignatius has made important contributions to TeliaSonera in a time of major
changes. I highly appreciate our cooperation and therefore, I can only regret
that he has now decided to leave the company. I wish Kim all the best in his new
position,” says Lars Nyberg, President and CEO of TeliaSonera AB.
