Magyar Telekom announces the termination of an investigation related to the internal investigation
Budapest March 21, 2011 Magyar Telekom (Reuters: MTEL.BU and Bloomberg: MTELEKOM HB), the leading Hungarian telecommunications service provider announces that the Hungarian National Bureau of Investigation terminated its investigation related to the internal investigation.
By resolution dated March 1, 2011, delivered to the Company on March 21, 2011, the Hungarian National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) terminated its criminal investigation against unknown perpetrator(s) regarding an alleged misappropriation of funds relating to payments made in connection with the independent internal investigation into certain contracts entered into by members of the Magyar Telekom Group and related matters as well as the possible misuse of personal data of employees in the context of the independent internal investigation. Pursuant to the resolution of the NBI, the criminal investigation was terminated because, based on the results of the investigation, it could not be established that criminal acts had been committed and further pursuing the investigation was not expected to produce any result.
As previously disclosed, U.S., Hungarian, Macedonian and Montenegrin governmental authorities have commenced investigations into certain of the Companys activities that were the subject of the internal investigation. These governmental investigations are continuing, and the Company continues to cooperate with these investigations. Governmental authorities could seek criminal or civil sanctions, including monetary penalties and/or disgorgement, against the Company or its affiliates, which could have a material effect on the Companys financial position, results of operations or cash flows, as well as require additional changes to its business practices and compliance programs. The Company cannot predict or estimate when any of these governmental investigations will be concluded, what the final outcome of these investigations may be, or the impact, if any, they may have on the Companys financial statements or results of operations.
