Discussion Regarding Beneficial Ownership

From the receipt deadline for applications (17 September 2013) until the deadline for the final payment on winning bids, any discussions regarding an addition or a significant change of beneficial ownership involving two bidders or any of their affiliates or associates, would fall into the area of prohibited discussions and would be considered contrary to the auction rules. It is therefore incumbent on all applicants to ensure that their affiliates and associates are aware of and abide by the rules, as stated in Section 5.4.2 — Discussion Regarding Beneficial Ownership of the Licensing Framework for Mobile Broadband Services (MBS) — 700 MHz Band.
