I. The Management Board of Netia SA (“Company” or “Netia”) (WSE: NET), Poland’s largest alternative provider of fixed-line telecommunications services, hereby presents the draft resolution to be presented for the shareholders’ vote at the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders to be held on February 11, 2009 (Annex 1).
II. According to Code of Best Practice for WSE Listed Companies, the Management Board of Netia hereby presents the justification of the resolution:
Justification of the resolution concerning merger of the Company with its wholly-owned subsidiary Tele2 Polska Sp. z o.o.:
The merger of Netia SA and its wholly owned subsidiary Tele2 Polska Sp. z o.o. is a part of the ongoing process of internal consolidation of Netia subsidiaries (the “Netia Group”).
