Copenhagen, 12 November 2018: DKT Finance ApS (the "Issuer") announces today that it has launched an asset disposition offer (the "Offer") inviting holders of its outstanding euro-denominated 7.000% Senior Notes due 2023 and dollar-denominated 9.375% Senior Notes due 2023 (together, the "Notes") to tender their Notes for purchase by the Issuer at 100% of the principal amount thereof (plus accrued and unpaid interest) for cash of up to €271 million (equivalent), in connection with the previously announced completion of the divestment of Get AS by TDC A/S ("TDC"). TDC has prepaid borrowings under its Term Loan B facility (the "TLB") (including all of the USD denominated tranche of the TLB) by approximately €1,847 million (equivalent) (and will make a further prepayment of €150 million) thereby reducing total reported net leverage at the TDC level.

The Issuer expects to pay the consideration payable pursuant to the Offer on the purchase date which will be no later than the fifth business day following the expiration of the offer.
The Issuer has engaged Global Loan Agency Services Limited to act as information agent (the "Information Agent") in connection with the Offer.
