Cellcom Israel Ltd. Announces Receiving a Petition in Regards to Airtime Charging Units in Calling Plans.NETANYA, Israel, December 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cellcom Israel Ltd. , announced that on December 3, 2007, the Company was served with a petition which was filed with the Israeli High Court of Justice. The petition was filed against the Israeli Minister of Communications, the Director General and the General Counsel of the Ministry of Communications office and another cellular operator. The Company and one other cellular operator were joined as formal respondents. The petition seeks to retroactively apply the amendment to the cellular operators' general license, effected September 2007, which prevents the cellular operators from offering subscribers calling plans using airtime charging units other than the basic airtime unit. Alternatively, the petition seeks to retroactively cancel any charges which may be imposed on subscribers when transferring, before the lapse of a predetermined period, to calling plans based on the basic airtime unit.
At this preliminary stage, the Company is unable to assess the petition's chances of success.
For additional details see our report on Form 6-K dated November 8, 2007 under "Other developments during third quarter and subsequent to balance sheet date - Change in Charging Units".
