Our results reflect improvements in macroeconomic conditions in our major markets, the consolidation of Kyivstar, as well as our efforts to drive further growth and improve the quality of our subscriber base. With annual revenues of more than $10 billion, almost $5 billion of OIBDA and $1.7  billion of net income, we continue to maintain a strong financial position."Mr. Izosimov continued, "Russia remains the focal point for us and we are implementing a comprehensive program aimed at accelerating our growth momentum in the robust and profitable Russian market. We continue to strengthen our competitive position and drive growth by prioritizing network expansion, further developing our marketing capabilities and working on distribution optimization and pricing efficiency. We have already begun to see the benefits of these efforts."He added, "Our Ukrainian business, after the consolidation of Kyivstar, delivered very good results as we regained market share, while sustaining our margins and cash flow generation ability. The synergies from integration have thus far exceeded our forecasts and overall we are happy with the development of our operations in Ukraine."   Mr. Izosimov concluded, "Today, we stand at a defining moment for VimpelCom. The combination with Wind Telecom recently approved by our shareholders will expand our growth platform and help to secure the advantages of greater scale and scope. Strategically, in a dynamic industry environment, we are now better positioned to capture additional growth as the industry focus shifts from voice to data. As we look ahead, we are confident this combination will be increasingly attractive for all our stakeholders and will unlock additional value within the next 24 months."Russia - Business Context, Operations and Financial ResultsDuring the last quarter of the year, the Russian market demonstrated a modest post-crisis recovery while the Russian telecom market continued to grow and offer attractive opportunities in both the  voice and data segments.  The competitive situation remained intense, especially in the mobile segment.  In these circumstances, Russia, our largest business unit, reported an increase of 5.3% in net operating revenues in 2010 as compared to 2009 with growth accelerating towards year end. Revenue growth in 4Q10 as compared to 4Q09 was 9.7%,  driven by progress in both the mobile and fixed line segments.Operating highlights in Russia:As throughout  2010 we  grew slower than the Russian telecom market, our key priority has been to accelerate growth and better exploit existing market opportunities.  As a result of our active sales campaigns, the number of subscriptions increased 2.2% for both 4Q10 and  the full year, reaching a record 52 million at year-endMobile quarterly revenue increased 10.0% over 4Q09 and 6.4% for the full year, with growth from subscribers and usage translating into revenue growth. This was further supported by incremental data revenues and revenue from sales of handsets and other equipment, which  contributed 5.0% to quarterly growth over 4Q09 and 2.3% to total annual growthFixed line revenue increased 8.3% in 4Q10 vs. 4Q09 to end the year up 0.2% as compared to 2009. The consumer segment continued to show very strong performance with FTTB revenue growth of 34.6% vs. 4Q09 and 18.7% quarter-on-quarter in 4Q10Our 2010 total data revenue, including mobile and FTTB, reached 18 billion rubles, a 27% increase year-on-yearIn 4Q10, consolidated fixed and mobile OIBDA margin for Russia  declined to 43.4% from 47.0% in 3Q10, reflecting seasonality, as well as   a shift in traffic mix, higher volume of devices sold and increased marketing spendTo accommodate rapidly growing demand for our services in 2010 we more than doubled investments and returned to our normal investment levels with a Capex to sales ratio of 19.2% vs. 8.1%  in 2009. This affected our ROIC, which we nevertheless maintained at the targeted level of over 30%.We expect the economic recovery in Russia to continue with support from rising oil and gas prices.  Against this backdrop, we plan to  pursue  rapid network development and enhanced marketing programs to deliver strong targeted return on invested capital going forward.RUSSIA (RUR millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10 /4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Net operating revenues64,55258,8199.7%64,2840.4%247,923235,4385.3%Adjusted OIBDA28,02627,9500.3%30,244-7.3%114,621116,882-1.9%Adjusted OIBDA margin, % 43.4%47.5%47.0%46.2%49.6%SG&A 17,94816,8056.8%17,2634.0%67,76662,3198.7%  including Sales & Marketing Expenses6,5955,86212.5%6,0578.9%23,21220,01316.0%  including General & Administrative Costs11,35310,9433.7%11,2061.3%44,55442,3065.3%SG&A percentage27.8%28.6%26.9%27.3%26.5%Capital expenditures24,8429,778154.1%11,715112.1%47,63119,123149.1%ROIC, %30.9%32.2%32.2%30.9%32.2%*  Mobile and fixed revenues for all periods were adjusted; see definition of reportable segments in Attachment A.** Adjusted MOU is calculated for mobile subscriptions excluding mobile broadband subscriptions using USB modems.RUSSIA REVENUES* (RUR millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10 / 4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Net operating revenues64,55258,8199.7%64,2840.4%247,923235,4385.3%Mobile 53,82848,92110.0%53,8040.0%207,338194,9366.4%including data revenue3,6193,01120.2%3,19613.2%13,02110,46424.4%Fixed-line10,7249,8988.3%10,4802.3%40,58540,5020.2%Business segment4,8574,7731.8%4,8041.1%18,75420,851-10.1%Wholesale3,8863,5569.3%3,985-2.5%14,93013,8667.7%Residential 1,9811,56926.3%1,69117.1%6,9005,78419.3%including FTTB revenue 1,4641,08834.6%1,23318.7%5,0563,78833.5%RUSSIA OIBDA DEVELOPMENT* (RUR millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10 /4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Adjusted OIBDA Total28,02627,9500.3%30,244-7.3%114,621116,882-1.9%Mobile 24,99325,085-0.4%27,130-7.9%103,084103,908-0.8%Fixed-line3,0332,8655.9%3,114-2.6%11,53712,974-11.1%Adjusted Total OIBDA margin, %43.4%47.5%47.0%46.2%49.6%Mobile, % 46.4%51.3%50.4%49.7%53.3%Fixed-line, % 28.3%28.9%29.7%28.4%32.0%RUSSIA OPERATING DEVELOPMENT4Q 104Q 094Q 10 /4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Mobile operationsSubscriptions  ('000)52,02050,8872.2%51,6150.8%52,02050,8872.2%including mobile broadband subscriptions1,9271,03885.6%1,50028.5%1,9271,03885.6%MOU, min228.4217.74.9%222.12.8%218.5211.43.4%Adjusted MOU**, min235.5221.46.4%227.83.4%224.0214.74.3%ARPU, RUR332.6316.95.0%342.5-2.9%328.2319.62.7%Fixed-line operationsFTTB subscriptions ('000)1,35897139.9%1,19313.8%1,35897139.9%FTTB ARPU, RUR383.9392.9-2.3%357.97.3%368.0394.9-6.8%Ukraine - Business Context, Operations and Pro-forma Financial Results*In Ukraine, the economy showed improvement during 2010 as GDP returned to growth and was up 4.2% in real terms, while inflation slowed to around 10%. In the telecom market, the mobile segment remained flat due to reduced mobile termination rates. For the full year, our Ukraine business unit delivered solid results with consolidated revenue declining by just 0.3% on a pro-forma basis, in line with market trends.  Revenues improved in the second half of the year with underlying growth of 3.4% year-on-year in 4Q10, when taking into account a one-off adjustment to 4Q09 Kyivstar revenues, related to interconnection fees.The integration of our Ukrainian operations continues to progress well with independently validated synergies of approximately $52 million in 2010, exceeding our initial targets. Approximately 70% of these savings came from optimization of Capex, further supported by revenue synergies and savings in SG&A. Operating highlights in Ukraine:Our marketing activities in mobile continued to focus on promoting high usage and unlimited tariffs. This has led to an increase in MOU and ARPU, simultaneously lowering  churn.  Our active customer base year-on-year resumed growth, up 1.5% to 24.4 million at 2010 year-end while ARPU increased by 0.7% over 4Q09 and by 1.3% for the full yearWe added 52,306 broadband subscriptions in the quarter, increasing the total base by 143.5% over 4Q09 and delivering on our ambitious plans to become the #1 alternative broadband operator in Ukraine. Residential fixed (mainly FTTB) revenue showed 140.9% growth compared to 4Q09 and 104.4% growth for the full yearMobile revenue increased 1.7% over 4Q09 and 0.2% for the full year despite a significant reduction in mobile termination rates of approximately 20%, intense price-based competition and proliferation of free on-net tariffsSG&A costs for the full year were 0.2% below 2009 despite increases in traffic volumes, a five fold increase in frequency fees and high inflation. This is the result of our ongoing operational excellence program and synergy initiatives.  Strong profitability was reflected in a consolidated OIBDA margin increase of 1.6 percentage points in comparison with 4Q09 and 1.5 percentage points increase in comparison with full year 2009 due to synergies, ongoing cost management and lower mobile termination ratesCapital expenditures were up 38% for the full year of 2010 to support the growth in mobile traffic and active broadband rollout. We continue to invest in the development of our current mobile network and we also see the development of our FTTB networks as a priority.* Ukraine reporting segment includes operations of Kyivstar, URS and GTI.  "Pro forma basis" means that the numbers are presented assuming that the business combination with Kyivstar had taken place on January 1, 2009UKRAINE PRO-FORMA (UAH millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10/4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Net operating revenues3,198.33,174.90.7%3,365.4-5.0%12,488.912,521.9-0.3%Adjusted OIBDA1,709.11,643.94.0%1,913.2-10.7%6,695.56,529.42.5%Adjusted OIBDA margin, % 53.4%51.8%56.8%53.6%52.1%SG&A 944.1898.35.1%873.58.1%3,578.13,586.5-0.2%  including Sales & Marketing Expenses176.2220.1-19.9%167.35.3%668.7788.9-15.2%  including General & Administrative Costs767.9678.213.2%706.28.7%2,909.42,797.64.0%SG&A percentage29.5%28.3%26.0%28.6%28.6%Capital expenditures584.0421.038.7%403.344.8%2,005.31,453.737.9%UKRAINE PRO-FORMA REVENUES (UAH millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10/4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Net operating revenues3,198.33,174.90.7%3,365.4-5.0%12,488.912,521.9-0.3%Mobile 3,064.83,013.61.7%3,239.4-5.4%11,945.211,926.90.2%Fixed-line 133.5161.3-17.2%126.06.0%543.8595.1-8.6%Business segment77.782.5-5.8%74.93.7%299.4329.8-9.2%Wholesale25.266.1-61.9%27.2-7.4%146.7217.5-32.6%Residential 30.612.7140.9%23.928.0%97.747.8104.4%UKRAINE ACTUAL (UAH millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10/4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Net operating revenues3,198.3384.7731.4%3,365.4-5.0%9,384.11,582.1493.1%Adjusted OIBDA Total1,709.160.82711.0%1,913.2-10.7%5,007.4281.41679.5%Net income/(loss) attributable to VimpelCom Ltd.514.1(214.4)587.3-12.5%1,275.1(703.1)UKRAINE PRO-FORMA OPERATING DEVELOPMENT 4Q 104Q 094Q 10/4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Mobile operationsSubscriptions  ('000)24,39024,0341.5%25,057-2.7%24,39024,0341.5%MOU, min456.6379.120.4%433.25.4%430.9320.034.7%ARPU mobile, UAH40.340.00.7%42.6-5.4%39.839.31.3%ARPU mobile, US$5.15.02.0%5.4-5.6%5.05.00.0%Fixed-line operationsBroadband subscriptions ('000)266.1109.3143.5%213.824.5%266.1109.3143.5%Broadband ARPU, UAH38.244.7-14.6%38.00.6%41.057.2-28.3%Broadband ARPU, US$4.85.6-14.3%4.80.0%5.27.3-28.8%CIS - Business Context, Operations and Financial Results*In 2010, net operating revenues in the CIS grew substantially, increasing 17% year-on-year driven by organic growth in major CIS markets, as well as the consolidation of our operations in Kyrgyzstan from 1Q10. The consolidated CIS OIBDA margin remained strong at 47.1%, in line with our targeted level of high 40's. Operating highlights in CIS:CIS mobile subscriptions grew to 15.6 million, representing a substantial increase of 37.7% year-on-year and 5.6% quarter-on-quarter as a result of the launch of new data products and an increase in the number of  sales channels In 4Q10, net operating revenues in the CIS continued to demonstrate considerable growth of 23% as compared with the same period in 2009. On a quarter-on-quarter basis net operating revenues grew 0.3%, despite the traditional seasonal decline in 4Q10The consolidated CIS OIBDA margin in 4Q10 remained strong at 44.3%, reflecting seasonal factors, 3G launch in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, higher sales and advertising costs due to competition in all markets. Despite two massive start-ups (FTTB and 3G), the annual consolidated CIS OIBDA margin of 47.1% remained in line with our targeted high level of profitabilityBroadband subscriptions increased 23.4% quarter-on-quarter, primarily driven by the development of our broadband operations in Armenia and KazakhstanCapex for the CIS markets increased substantially both year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter to support our network expansion, which is mainly focused on increasing mobile penetration and investments in fixed networks.CIS OPERATIONS (US$ millions)4Q 104Q 094Q 10/4Q 093Q 104Q 10/3Q 10201020092010/2009Net operating revenues362.0293.523.3%361.00.3%1,354.01,155.817.1%Adjusted OIBDA160.3144.510.9%176.0-8.9%637.8578.310.3%Adjusted OIBDA margin, % 44.3%49.2%48.8%47.1%50.0%SG&A110.778.041.9%94.617.0%374.5299.824.9%  including Sales & Marketing Expenses31.521.447.2%26.220.2%97.376.926.5%  including General & Administrative Costs79.256.639.9%68.415.8%277.2222.924.4%SG&A percentage30.6%26.6%26.2%27.7%25.9%Capital expenditures256.157.1348.5%78.3227.1%437.4106.9309.2%ROIC, %10.8%10.8%10.8%10.8%10.8%Mobile subscriptions ('000)15,61211,33737.7%14,7825.6%15,61211,33737.7%including mobile broadband subscriptions32.5-n/a20.360.1%32.5-n/aBroadband fixed-line subscriptions ('000)91.836.5151.5%74.423.4%91.836.5151.5%* CIS operations include operations in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan (since 1Q10), Tajikistan, and Georgia.

Adjusted OIBDA, previously referred to as EBITDA or OIBDA by OJSC VimpelCom, is defined as operating income before depreciation, amortization and impairment loss.  Our management uses adjusted OIBDA and adjusted OIBDA margin as supplemental performance measures and believes that adjusted OIBDA and adjusted OIBDA margin provide useful information to investors because they are indicators of the strength and performance of the Company's business operations, including its ability to fund discretionary spending, such as capital expenditures, acquisitions and other investments, as well as indicating its ability to incur and service debt. In addition, the components of adjusted OIBDA include the key revenue and expense items for which the Company's operating managers are responsible and upon which their performance is evaluated.  Adjusted OIBDA also assists management and investors by increasing the comparability of the Company's performance against the performance of other telecommunications companies that provide OIBDA or EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) information. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially inconsistent effects between periods or companies of depreciation, amortization and impairment loss, which items may significantly affect operating income between periods. However, our adjusted OIBDA results may not be directly comparable to other companies' reported OIBDA or EBITDA results due to variances and adjustments in the components of OIBDA (including our calculation of adjusted OIBDA) or calculation measures.  Additionally, a limitation of adjusted OIBDA's use as a performance measure is that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues or the need to replace capital equipment over time. Reconciliation of adjusted OIBDA to net income, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, is presented in the supplementary file FinancialOperatingQ42010.xls on our website at http://vimpelcom.com/ir/financials/results.wbp except annual amounts presented below in the reconciliation tables section.Adjusted OIBDA margin is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure.  We calculate adjusted OIBDA margin as adjusted OIBDA divided by net operating revenues, expressed as a percentage.  Reconciliation of adjusted OIBDA margin to net income as a percentage of net operating revenues, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, is presented in the supplementary file FinancialOperatingQ42010.xls on our website at http://vimpelcom.com/ir/financials/results.wbp except annual amounts presented below in the reconciliation tables section.ARPU (Monthly Average Revenue per User) is calculated by dividing service revenue during the relevant period, including roaming revenue and interconnect revenue, but excluding revenue from connection fees, sales of handsets and accessories and other non-service revenue, by the average number of subscriptions during the period and dividing by the number of months in that period. Broadband subscriptions are the customer contracts that served as a basis for revenue generating activity in the three months prior to the measurement date, as a result of activities including monthly internet access using FTTB, xDSL and WiFi technologies as well as mobile internet access  via USB modems using 3G/HSDPA technologies.Capital expenditures (Capex) - purchases of new equipment, new construction, upgrades, software, other long lived assets and related reasonable costs incurred prior to intended use of the non current asset, accounted at the earliest event of advance payment or delivery. Long-lived assets acquired in business combinations are not included in capital expenditures.CIS Geographic Segment for the purpose of VimpelCom's reporting includes our operations in the following countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Armenia and Georgia. Starting from the second quarter 2010 OJSC VimpelCom's operation in Ukraine was included into a separate reporting segment together with Kyivstar and reported on a pro-forma basis for all periods starting from the first quarter of 2010.Free cash flow is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure and is calculated as net income plus depreciation and amortization minus capital expenditures for the reported period (a quarter or a year, respectively). The Company believes that free cash flow provides useful information to investors because it is an indicator of our company's operational and financial performance and represents our ability to generate cash to maintain or expand our asset base. The Company also refers to free cash flow in determining its dividends. Free cash flow should not be considered in isolation as an alternative to operating cash flow or any other measure of the company's cash flows management.General and administrative costs (G&A) include salaries and outsourcing costs, including related social contributions required by law; stock price-based compensation expenses; repair and maintenance expenses; rent, including lease payments for base station sites; utilities; other miscellaneous expenses, such as insurance, operating taxes, license fees, and accounting, audit and legal fees.Households passed are households located within buildings, in which indoor installation of all the FTTB equipment necessary to install terminal residential equipment has been completed. SEA Geographic segment ? VimpelCom's operations in South-East Asia, which include operations in Cambodia and VimpelCom's respective equity in net results of operations of its Vietnamese associate entity GTEL-Mobile JSC ("GTEL-Mobile"). Mobile subscriptions are SIM-cards registered in the system as of a measurement date, users of which generated revenue at any time during the three months prior to the measurement date. This includes revenue coming from any incoming and outgoing calls, subscription fee accruals, debits related to service, outgoing SMS, Multimedia Messaging Service (referred to as MMS), data transmission and receipt sessions, but does not include incoming SMS and MMS sent by VimpelCom or abandoned calls. VimpelCom's total number of mobile subscriptions also includes SIM-cards for use of mobile Internet service via USB modems.Mobile services are wireless voice and data transmission services excluding WiFi.MOU (Monthly Average Minutes of Use per User) is calculated by dividing the total number of minutes of usage for incoming and outgoing calls during the relevant period (excluding guest roamers) by the average number of mobile subscriptions during the period and dividing by the number of months in that period.Net debt is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure and is calculated as the sum of interest bearing long-term debt and short-term debt minus cash and cash equivalents and long-term and short-term deposits. The Company believes that net debt provides useful information to investors because it shows the amount of debt outstanding to be paid after using available cash and cash equivalent and long-term and short-term deposits. Net debt should not be considered in isolation as an alternative to long-term debt and short-term debt, or any other measure of the company financial position. Reconciliation of net debt to long-term debt and short-term debt, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, is presented below in the reconciliation tables section.Reportable segments ? The Company identified Russia mobile, Russia fixed-line, CIS, Ukraine and All other reporting segments based on the business activities in different geographical areas. Although Georgia is no longer a member of the CIS, consistent with VimpelCom's historic reporting practice VimpelCom continues to include Georgia in its CIS reporting segment. Mobile lines primarily include activities for the providing of wireless telecommunication services to the Company's subscribers and other operators; fixed-line primarily includes all activities for providing wireline telecommunication services, broadband and consumer Internet. Intersegment revenues are eliminated in consolidation.ROCE is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure and is calculated as operating income for the last twelve months divided by the sum of net debt, total equity and redeemable noncontrolling interest calculated as an average of the quarter-end balances for the last four quarters. The Company believes that ROCE (return on capital employed) provides useful information to management of our company and investors because it is an indicator of our company's operational performance and represents a return on employed capital at the end of each reported period. Calculation of ROCE on the basis of U.S. GAAP financial measures is presented in the reconciliation tables section below (Attachment B).ROIC is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure and is calculated as operating income for the last twelve months divided by the sum of property and equipment, licenses, intangible assets, goodwill, software and frequency permissions as reflected on the balance sheet as of the end of the period. The Company believes that ROIC (return on invested capital) provides useful information to management of our company because it is an indicator of our company's operational performance and provides a useful indication of how profitably our company used its resources in each reportable segment over the reported period. Calculation of ROIC on the basis of U.S. GAAP financial measures is presented below in the reconciliation tables section below (Attachment B).Sales and marketing costs (S&M) include marketing, advertising and dealer commissions expenses.Ukraine segment ? Due to change in the reporting structure of VimpelCom and in line with intentions made public by the Company in the previous quarter, Ukraine was considered to be a separate reporting segment apart from the CIS and includes the operations of VimpelCom's indirect Ukrainian subsidiaries Closed Joint Stock Company "Ukrainian Radio Systems" ("URS") and "Golden Telecom" Limited Liability Company ("GT LLC")), as well as Kyivstar.VAS (value added services) includes short messages ("SMS"), multimedia messages ("MMS"), caller number identification, call waiting, data transmission, mobile Internet, downloadable content and other services.Voice revenue ? for the purpose of press-release voice revenue includes voice revenue generated by our subscribers, roaming revenues generated by our subscribers and guest roamers and interconnect revenue. In our annual report and annual report on Form 20-F we report each of these types of revenues separately.SOURCE VimpelCom Ltd.For further information: Alexey Subbotin, VimpelCom, +31 20 79 77 200 (Amsterdam), +7 495 9545888 (Moscow), Investor_Relations@vimpelcom.com, or Mateo Millett, FD, +1-617 897-1533, mateo.millett@fd.com
