8 8 © VimpelCom Ltd 2012 TMS – Implementation process (1/2) 1.Global kick-off meeting March 2012 – jointly with BELLIN – paint the bigger picture / policy in which the TMS fits – not a stand alone project 2.Create clear (local) ownership and responsibility – GT / RTCs / OpCos / IT 3.RTC relationship managers at GT level, key users in RTCs, single point of contact with BELLIN (top-down approach) 4.Step-wise implementation – cash and debt first, the rest later 5.Staff-up for initial phase of (centralized) static data entry - interns 6.Add all bank accounts in tm5 – 1,300 accounts globally – replace excel based reporting with tm5 based reporting 7.Ongoing training of key users in RTCs and some key OpCos through webex 8.Progress reporting to all teams on the project in general, motivate the laggards

11 11 © VimpelCom Ltd 2012 Treasury Management System - Lessons 1.Keep it simple - ease of use & access is key for TMS to work for VIP 2.Align (with IT early), involve and communicate 3.Consultants do add value in speeding up the selection process; implementation can (and should) be done yourself 4.Know what you want, focus on what you need; nice-to-haves add complexity; will come later when people are familiar with the basics 5.Celebrate successes and recognize role model behavior – create we 6.Demonstrate solutions for those that present issues 7.Creating customized user manual is time consuming but essential Key statistics after 6 months: 1,300 bank accounts and all Treasury deals in tm5 180 users in 18 countries 500 entities / counterparties Global consolidated Treasury reporting from tm5
