VimpelCom Mulls Dividend

VimpelCom could pay an additional $250 million in dividends for the 2010 financial year, which would bring the entire payment to $850 million, the company said.

VimpelCom decided in November to pay interim dividends at $0.46 per American Depositary Receipt (one ADR equals a common share), which put the entire dividend payment at $600 million.

According to terms set in the agreement for the acquisition of Wind Telecom from Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris, VimpelCom will pay up to $850 million in dividends for 2010. The current owners of Wind, including Sawiris, will not have the right to receive those funds.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
