Digi Communications NV: We will challenge the Bucharest Tribunal’s decision

BUCHAREST, Romania, 16-Jan-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — In connection with the investigation triggered by the Romanian National Anti-Corruption Directorate (“DNA”), which we have previously disclosed to the market and to our investors in the initial public offering prospectus dated 26 April 2017, in the supplemental prospectus dated 8 May 2017, as well as in the subsequent public reports, the Company would like to inform its investors and the market that, based on the information published on the official platform of the court on 16 January 2019, on 15 January 2019, the Bucharest Tribunal convicted RCS & RDS S.A. (the Company’s subsidiary in Romania – “RCS&RDS”) in connection with the offence of money laundering for which the court applied a criminal fine in the amount of lei 1,250,000. The Bucharest Tribunal’s decision also decided on the confiscation from RCS&RDS of an amount of Euro 3,100,000 plus lei 655,124 and it maintained the seizure over the two real estate assets first instituted by the DNA.

Integrasoft S.R.L. was convicted in connection with the offence of accessory to money laundering for which the court applied a criminal fine of lei 700,000. Mr. Bendei Ioan was convicted to a 4 years imprisonment sentence in connection with the offence of accessory to money laundering resulting from his capacity of director of Integrasoft S.R.L.

Mr. Serghei Bulgac (Chief Executive Officer and President of the board of directors of RCS&RDS), Mr. Mihai Dinei (member of the board of directors of RCS&RDS), as well as Mr. Alexandru Oprea(former Chief Executive Officer of RCS&RSD) were acquitted in connection with all the accusations brought against them by the DNA.

In the same case file, Mr. Dumitru Dragomir was convicted to a 4 years imprisonment sentence in connection with the offences of receiving of bribe and accessory to money laundering, Mr. Bădiță Florin Bogdan (director of Bodu S.R.L.) was convicted to a 4 years imprisonment sentence in connection with the offences of accessory to the receiving of bribe and to money laundering, the company Bodu S.R.L. was convicted in connection with the offences of accessory to the receiving of bribe and money laundering, while Mr. Bogdan Dumitru Dragomir was acquitted in connection with all the accusations brought against him by the DNA.

The decision also abolishes the joint-venture agreement from 2009 concluded between RCS&RDS and Bodu S.R.L., as well as all the agreements concluded between RCS&RDS, Bodu S.R.L. and Integrasoft S.R.L. in 2015 and 2016.

We deem the Bucharest Tribunal’s decision to be profoundly unjust, incorrect and ungrounded. This decision is neither final nor enforceable.

We will challenge this decision to the Bucharest Court of Appeal immediately. We trust that the Bucharest Tribunal issues its written decision within a reasonable timeframe, for a timely judgement of the case in the appeal, and that no further deferral is perpetrated.

We strongly restate that RCS&RDS, Integrasoft S.R.L. and their current and former officers have acted appropriately and in compliance with the laws, as we have argued since the beginning of this investigation. We express our belief in the justice in Romania and our trust that this case will be rightfully rebutted in the appeal.

Digi Communications N.V. to convert 1,200,000 class A shares held by the Company in treasury into an equal number of class B shares

BUCHAREST, Romania, 15-Jan-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — The Company would like to inform the market and its investors that, on 14 January 2019, the Board of Directors of the Company decided to convert 1,200,000 class A shares held by the Company in treasury into an equal number of class B shares (the “Conversion”). The Conversion performed in accordance with article 5 from the Company’s articles of association was duly recorded with the Dutch trade register with effect on 14 January 2019. Given the difference in the nominal value between a class A share (Euro 0.1) and a class B share (Euro 0.01) of the Company, in accordance with article 5 (4) from the Company’s articles of association, the Conversion resulted in a decrease by Euro 0.09 in nominal value per class A share subject of the Conversion (in total – Euro 108.000). This amount will be added to the general equity reserves of the Company. The Conversion will also need to be duly recorded with the Financial Supervisory Authority and with the Central Securities Depository in Romania.

The class B shares resulting from the Conversion will be used by the Company (in addition to the existing treasury class B shares and to the class B shares repurchased through the ongoing buy-back program) for the purpose of the several ongoing Company’s subsidiaries employees and managers stock option plans having a vesting period as follows: the stock option plan involving the Romanian employees, directors and officers of RCS & RDS S.A. and of other Romanian subsidiaries of the Company (with an estimated vesting calendar between – December 2018 – November 2019, with the majority of shares vesting during January – February 2019); the stock option plan involving the employees and officers of the Spanish subsidiary of the Company and an additional stock option plan involving a limited number of directors and managers of RCS & RDS S.A.

DIGI: our Romanian subsidiary RCS & RDS S.A. paid over LEI 1.2 billion for taxes and contributions to local and state budgets in 2017

BUCHAREST, Romania, 08-Jan-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — We would like to inform the market and our investors that, on 29 December 2018, an Emergency Government Ordinance no 114/2018 (the “GEO 114/2018”) establishing, amongst others, certain budgetary and tax measures was published in the Romanian Official Gazette. The GEO 114/2018 sets an increased monitoring tariff of 3% applied to the turnover of telecommunications operators meant to finance the activity of the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications of Romania (ANCOM). The prolongation of the exploitation period for the existing mobile communications licenses will be subject to the payment of 4% applied to the turnover generated from the mobile telephony operations in the year prior to the extension multiplied with the number of years for which the license validity period is prolonged. The further grant of the new mobile communications licenses will be subject to the payment of a percentage of either 2% or 4% applied to the turnover generated from the mobile telephony operations in the year prior to the grant date multiplied with the number of years corresponding to the validity period of the license. Also, the fines applicable for regulatory breaches in connection with the telecommunications sector in Romania were increased significantly.

The GEO 114/2018 additionally increased the level of the corporate tax applied to licenses owners operating energy or gas activities in Romania to 2% applied to the turnover generated from the respective energy or gas activity. In the public announcements made at the adoption of the GEO 114/2018, the Romanian Government’s representatives stated that the additional taxation would be caused by the “incorrect behaviour” of the telecommunications operators. We are of the opinion that these allegations have no legal, tax or economical basis, and that the decision to introduce these new taxes is ungrounded and discriminatory.

In connection with RCS & RDS S.A.’s activity, our Romanian subsidiary („Digi | RCS&RDS”), we express the following: Out of the turnover of approximately LEI 3.3 billion registered in 2017, Digi | RCS&RDS paid during the same year more than 1/3 (meaning over LEI 1.2 billion) for: taxes and contributions to the state budget, to the central authorities and to the local budgets; amounts due to state owned companies and other similar entities; and also it performed multiple payments to various public and private entities based on mandatory legal requirements. In connection with the income tax assessed by Digi | RCS&RDS, we must recall that, since 2007 until 2017, Digi | RCS&RDS invested more than EURO 2 billion for the development of a highly advanced fixed and mobile telecommunications network based on optical fibre. These investments were made to the benefit of millions of customers who enjoy today the best quality services at very advantageous prices. These investments performed by Digi | RCS&RDS (and which were subject of amortization) have implicitly determined the reduction of the taxable basis, in full compliance with the tax legislation.

In our view GEO 114/2018 is prejudicial to the development of the telecommunications and energy industries in Romania as it materially increases, without proper consultation and without any serious justification, the fiscal burden on businesses in these sectors, thus potentially restricting the ability to make further investments and affecting clients. We will be further evaluating the impact of GEO 114/2018 on our business and take those measures that are deemed necessary.
