VEON Granted Extension by Nasdaq for 20-F Filing

Amsterdam, 13 June 2023 – VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON), a global digital operator that provides converged connectivity and online services, (“VEON” or the “Company”), confirms that Nasdaq has accepted the Company’s plan submitted May 8,2023 to regain compliance in connection with the delayed filing of its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022. Nasdaq has granted the Company an exception, enabling it to regain compliance with the listing rules by filing its 2022 20-F by October 30, 2023.

VEON had previously reported that it would be delayed in its filing of 2022 20-F due to extraordinary circumstances in 2022; and announced that it had received notice from Nasdaq that it was not in compliance with the timely filing requirements for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). The Company’s plan to regain compliance, shared with Nasdaq in the days following the notice, was accepted by the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market, which granted the Company an exception for delayed filing.

The Company confirms that, as previously announced, it continues to work diligently together with its independent external auditor in order to complete and file its 2022 20-F as soon as possible.
