150/2010 Notification on start of proceedings regarding DPTG claim - Orange Polska

Pursuant to art. 5, clause 1, item 8 of the Decree of the Minister of Finance of 19 February 2009 on current and periodic information disclosed by issuers of securities and conditions for recognising as equivalent information required by the laws of a non-member state (Journal of Laws of 2009 No. 33, item 259, with amendments) the Management Board of Telekomunikacja Polska S.A. (“TP S.A.”, “ Company”) hereby informs that it has been notified of start of proceedings in the District Court in Warsaw with regards to the Danish Polish Telecommunications Group (‘DPTG’) claim.

On December 22, 2010; TP S.A. was notified by the District Court in Warsaw that DPTG has filed a motion in the above-mentioned court to ascertain enforceability and obtain an enforceability clause with regards to the partial decision issued by the Arbitration Tribunal in Vienna (Austria) on August 24, 2010 (notified to TP S.A. on September 3, 2010); as reported by the Company in the current report 104 dated September 3, 2010.

The court hearing with regards to this matter is scheduled for March 9, 2011.

As previously reported by the Company, the total amount due to DPTG according to the above-mentioned partial decision for the period from February 1994 to June 2004 (‘phase I’) after currency conversions amounts to approximately DKK 2,946mn (approx €396mn), or PLN equivalent of 1,568mn.

The Company intends to undertake all necessary legal actions and present the Court with appropriate argumentation in order to resist the ascertainment of enforceability of the partial decision issued by the Arbitration Tribunal. In the opinion of TP S.A.’s management, the above-mentioned award should not obtain the ascertainment of enforceability due to numerous faults upon its issuance. Moreover, in the opinion of TP S.A.’s management, enforceability of the above-mentioned award would be against the basic principles of the Polish public policy.
