Orascom Telecom Holding S.A.E. (“Orascom Telecom” or “OTH”) announces that after exceeding the 1 million subscriber mark required in its management contract signed with the Republic of Lebanon in January 2009, OTH has been awarded an extension to the management contract of Alfa, one of the two Lebanese mobile telecommunications operators, for a period of 6 months ending on 31 July 2010.

Under this contract, OTH receives a monthly sum of USD 2.5 Million in addition to 8.5% of total revenues. Out of these amounts Orascom Telecom Holding is liable to cover all the operational expenses (OPEX) of the network and is entitled to keep the remainder as management fees.

“We’re happy with the achievements made in the Lebanese mobile market through our management of Alfa during the past year, and are hoping to secure a presence for OTH within the long term plans of the Republic of Lebanon for its mobile communication market” said Khaled Bichara, Orascom Telecom’s CEO.
