The Tender Offers are made on the terms and subject to the conditions
set forth in the Tender Offer Memorandum dated 30 November 2016
(capitalized terms used in this announcement without definition have
the meanings specified in the Tender Offer Memorandum). The Tender
Offers will expire at 5:00 pm NYT on 6 January 2017 (the "Expiration
Deadline"). As Notes were tendered at the Early Tender Deadline in an
amount exceeding the Maximum Offer Amount of $300 million, no Notes
tendered after the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for
purchase.

All 2020 Notes and all 2021 Notes with a bid price below the Clearing
Price validly tendered and not withdrawn on or before the Early
Tender Deadline have been accepted for purchase. 2021 Notes with a
bid price at the Clearing Price validly tendered and not withdrawn on
or before the Early Tender Deadline have been prorated as described
in the Tender Offer Memorandum; resulting in a proration factor of
0.3068. All 2021 Notes not accepted for purchase have been rejected
from the Tender Offers and will be returned to holders.

Noteholders who validly tendered their Notes by the Early Tender
Deadline and whose Notes have been accepted for purchase (subject to
proration) will receive the Early Tender Consideration per $1,000
principal amount of Notes accepted, in an amount equal to the sum of
the Accrued Interest plus (i) in respect of the 2020 Notes, the
Purchase Price plus the Early Tender Premium (as indicated above), or
(ii) in respect of the 2021 Notes, the Clearing Price (as indicated
above), which includes the Early Tender Premium. Settlement of the
Notes accepted for purchase is expected to occur on or about 16
December 2016.

Subject to applicable law and as further described in the Tender Offer
Memorandum, Millicom, in its sole discretion, may extend, amend,
waive any condition of or terminate the Tender Offers at any time,
including by increasing the Maximum Offer Amount or the Auction Cap.
The Tender Offers are subject to certain conditions described in the
Tender Offer Memorandum, and no consideration will be paid if the
conditions are not satisfied or waived. Notes that are not validly
tendered and/or not purchased will remain outstanding.

This press release is qualified in its entirety by the Tender Offer
Memorandum. This press release will also be posted on the website of
the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

The tender agent for the Tender Offers is Citibank N.A., London
Branch. Any questions or requests for assistance or copies of Tender

This press release is for information purposes only and does not
constitute an offer to purchase nor the solicitation of an offer to
sell any of the securities described herein nor shall there be any
offer or sale of such securities in any jurisdiction in which such
offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The Tender Offers are
being made pursuant to the Tender Offer Memorandum, which sets forth
the complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offers. Noteholders
can obtain copies of the Tender Offer Memorandum from the tender
agent or the dealer managers. Noteholders are urged to read the
Tender Offer Memorandum carefully before making any decision with
respect to their Notes.

Any individual or company whose Notes are held by a broker, dealer,
bank, custodian, trust company or other nominee must contact such
entity and instruct such entity, as the holder of such Notes, to
tender their Notes in accordance with the customary procedures of
Euroclear, Clearstream or DTC, as applicable. If any holder is in
any doubt as to the action it should take, it is recommended for such
holder to seek its own financial and legal advice, including as to
any tax consequences, immediately from its stockbroker, bank,
manager, solicitor, accountant or other independent financial or
legal adviser. The Tender Offers are not being made to, nor will
Millicom accept tenders of Notes from, holders in any jurisdiction in
which it is unlawful to make such an offer or solicitation. None of
Millicom, the dealer managers, the tender agent nor the trustee for
the Notes makes any recommendation as to whether Noteholders should
tender their Notes in response to the Tender Offers or at what bid
prices holders of the 2021 Notes should tender their Notes.

Certain statements in this press release, including those describing
the completion of the Tender Offers, constitute forward-looking
statements. These statements are not historical facts but instead
represent only Millicom's belief regarding future events, many of
which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside

possibly materially, from the anticipated results indicated in these
statements.
