Media statement from Bharti Airtel Limited
New Delhi, May 6, 2008: Further to the statement issued yesterday that Bharti Airtel Limited (Bharti) has entered into exploratory discussions with MTN Group Ltd., Bharti would like to clarify that it has not made any offer to acquire the whole or part of MTN. Therefore, the speculation around a bid by Bharti in a section of the media is incorrect and misleading. Details of any transaction will be released promptly, if and when, the parties reach agreement.
As a responsible listed company, Bharti will continue to uphold the highest levels of transparency and corporate governance.
