According to NASDAQ rules, Vimpelcom should present a correction plan within 60 calendar days.
On May 1, VimpelCom notified the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) it would not be able to timely present the mentioned report because of the investigation initiated by the US Department of Justice and SEC as well as the prosecutor of the Netherlands in mid-March in relation to the holding’s operations in Uzbekistan.
