In connection with its 4 for 5 SETs offering (the “Offering”) of 418,839,316 new ordinary
shares (the “Offer Shares”) at an issue price of 0.61 per Offer Share (the “Issue Price”),
Versatel Telecom International N.V. (“Versatel”) today announces the pricing and
placement of the offering of the Offer Shares that were issuable upon the exercise of
transferable subscription entitlements (“SETs”) by eligible holders of SETs but have not been
subscribed for during the exercise period (the “Rump Offering”).
The definitive number of Offer Shares included in the Rump Offering has been determined to
be 12,892,744 new ordinary shares (the “Rump Shares”). No Rump Shares were placed in a
private placement with institutional and professional investors. Tele2 Finance B.V. (“Tele2
Finance”) has therefore acquired 12,892,744 Rump Shares at 0.70, as previously agreed
between Tele2 Finance and Versatel pursuant to the commitment agreement.
Excess Amount, Closing and Settlement
Under the terms of the Offering, the following payments shall be made:
· each eligible holder of a SET that was not exercised at the end of the SET exercise
period will be entitled to receive 0.072 for each unexercised SET reflected in such
holder’s securities account; and
· each shareholder which held our ordinary shares at 17:40 hours (Central European
Time) on 14 February 2007 (the “Record Date”) but was ineligible to be granted
SETs (assuming compliance by such person with the selling and transfer restrictions
described in the prospectus dated 15 February 2007, the “Prospectus”) will be
entitled to 0.072 for each SET that such shareholder would have been granted but
for such shareholder’s status as a shareholder ineligible to be granted SETs.
These amounts will be distributed as soon as practicably possible after the closing of the
Offering and will be credited through the facilities of Euroclear Nederland, Euroclear and
Clearstream Luxembourg. Payments will be made in Euro only, without interest and after
withholding of any applicable taxes.
Allotment of the Offer Shares will take place today. Payment and delivery is expected to
occur on Tuesday 6 March 2007. Trading in the Offer Shares is expected to commence on
Eurolist by Euronext Amsterdam on Tuesday 6 March 2007.
As described in the Prospectus, the Offering will give rise to a recalculation of the current
conversion price of Versatel’s outstanding 3.875% convertible notes due 2011. The new
conversion price and its effect on the fully diluted ownership of Tele2 Finance, is to be
announced upon closing of the Offering.

Tele2 en KPN misschien samen verder??? Ze doen al zaken op digitale TV en dan is KPN gelijk af van die lastige concurrent die lage vaste telefoontarieven aanbied en klanten afsnoept.
