Netia Holdings S.A. holds Ordinary Shareholders' Meeting

WARSAW, Poland - June 18, 2002 - Netia Holdings S.A. (Nasdaq: NTIAQ, WSE: NET), Poland's largest alternative provider of fixed-line telecommunications services, announced today that its Ordinary Shareholders' Meeting held on June 18, 2002 (i) approved the Management Board's report and financial statements for the 2001 financial year, (ii) appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers Sp. z o.o. as its expert auditor to examine the financial statements for the 2002 financial year, (iii) approved the remuneration granted in 2001 and later to members of the Supervisory Board and (iv) re-adopted certain shareholders' resolutions from the March 12, 2002 Extraordinary General Shareholders' Meeting.

Netia re-adopted the resolutions regarding the issuance of series "H" shares, previously adopted by the Extraordinary General Shareholders' Meeting on March 12, 2002 in connection with the Company's ongoing restructuring. Pursuant to Polish law, a resolution increasing the Company's share capital may not be filed with the registry court later than six months after its adoption. Re-adoption of these resolutions therefore extends the time during which the share capital increase can be registered. Arrangement proceedings in connection with Netia's restructuring were opened in Poland on May 15, 2002.
