Netherlands), who are hereinafter called "the clients". The announcement by
Schönherr Rechtsanwälte GmbH is as follows: 

"On behalf of our clients and with reference to the notification dated
16.01.2014 we notify you in accordance with sec 91a para 6 Austrian Stock
Exchange Act ("SEA") about a change in major shareholdings in Telekom Austria
Aktiengesellschaft (ISIN: AT0000720008), Lassallestrasse 9, 1020 Vienna
("Telekom Austria AG" or "Issuer"):

Carso Telecom B.V. is a company established under Dutch Law which is via
Sercotel controlled by América Móvil as defined in sec 92 no 4 SEA: Sercotel is
a wholly-owned subsidiary of América Móvil and Sercotel holds 100 % of the
shares in Carso Telecom.

Hitherto América Móvil directly held 7,935,700 shares with voting rights issued
by Telekom Austria AG corresponding to 1.7914 % of the voting rights in the
Issuer as well as indirectly via Carso Telecom 96,940,174 shares with voting
rights issued by Telekom Austria AG corresponding to 21.8827 % of the voting
rights in the Issuer. Therefore, América Móvil directly and indirectly hitherto
held a total of 104,875,874 shares with voting rights issued by Telekom Austria
AG corresponding to 23.674 % of the voting rights in the issuer.

Furthermore, Carso Telecom concluded a conditional share purchase agreement with
Inmobiliaria Carso, S.A. de C.V. and Control Empresarial de Capitales, S.A. de
C.V. (the "Sellers") on 14.01.2014 to acquire a total of 13,901,000 shares with
voting rights issued by Telekom Austria AG corresponding to 3.1379 % of the
voting rights in the Issuer. This conditional acquisition was notified on
16.01.2014. Regulatory approval was granted on 11.03.2014 and therefore the
transaction could be completed on 13.03.2014. Thus, Carso Telecom
unconditionally acquired 13,901,000 shares with voting rights issued by Telekom
Austria AG from Inmobiliaria Carso, S.A. de C.V. and Control Empresarial de
Capitales, S.A. de C.V.on 13.03.2014. This acquisition results in a disclosure
obligation according to sec 91a para 6 SEA and in a total of voting rights
attributable to Carso Telecom and América Móvil pursuant to sec 91 and 92 SEA as
follows: 

Carso Telecom according to sec 91 SEA 110,841,174 / 25.0206 %; América Móvil
according to sec 91, 92 SEA 118,776,874 / 26.8119 %. 

After such acquisition Carso Telekom is holding 110,841,174 shares with voting
rights issued by Telekom Austria AG corresponding to 25.0206 % of the voting
rights in the Issuer and thus has crossed the 25 % threshold of voting rights in
the Issuer; América Móvil is directly (sec 91 para 1 SEA) and indirectly (sec 92
no 4 SEA) holding 118,776,874 shares with voting rights issued by Telekom
Austria AG corresponding to 26.8119 % of the voting rights in the Issuer and
thus has crossed the 25 % threshold of voting rights in the Issuer."
