Request for judicial review of the final judgement regarding the resolutions of the 2010 General Meeting
Budapest November 8, 2011 Magyar Telekom (Reuters: MTEL.BU and Bloomberg: MTELEKOM HB), the leading Hungarian telecommunications service provider announces that, in the lawsuit relating to the resolutions of the general meeting held on April 7, 2010, the minority shareholder plaintiffs filed a request for judicial review of the final judgment of the Metropolitan Court of Appeal.
As previously disclosed, two Hungarian minority shareholders filed a lawsuit against the Company on May 6, 2010, requesting the Court to render ineffective the resolutions passed by the general meeting of the Company held on April 7, 2010. The Metropolitan Court dismissed the claim in its first instance judgment; subsequently, in its final judgment announced on May 31, 2011, the Metropolitan Court of Appeal upheld on the merits the first instance judgment, as requested by the Company. Accordingly, the judgment rejecting the minority shareholder plaintiffs claim became binding.
Today, the Company took delivery of a request for judicial review submitted by the minority shareholder plaintiffs, in which they request, as an extraordinary remedy, that the Supreme Court annul the final judgment of the Metropolitan Court of Appeal.
The Company believes that the request for judicial review is unfounded. The Company will take all necessary actions to defend against the request in the judicial review procedure.
We cannot fully exclude that the Company will be required to take corporate actions in connection with this proceeding. Also, we cannot provide any assurance that this matter would not have other adverse effects on the Company that are not currently foreseeable.
