In addition, following up on the Company's communication of 26 November 2019, the Company informed the Argentine Securities Commission and the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange that on 11 December 2019, the court resolved that the claim filed by one of the Company's shareholders, Mr. Daniel Burgueño, in re "Burgueño Daniel v. Executive Branch - Argentine Securities Commission on ordinary proceeding" (File No. 33763/2019) be deemed responded by the Company.  The claim seeks a declaration by the court that the Company is not under an obligation to launch a tender offer to acquire shares as a result of the change of control that occurred in Telecom Argentina S.A., pursuant to Resolution No. 779/2018 of the Argentine Securities Commission (especially Article 32(k)), which implements Law No. 26,831 (as amended by Law No. 27,440).  Said Resolution No. 779/2018 excludes companies from the obligation of launching a mandatory tender offer in certain cases of change of control that occur as a result of a merger, subject to certain conditions.  In its response to Mr. Burgueño's claim, the Company agreed with the interpretation made by Mr. Burgueño of applicable law.  As of the date hereof, these proceedings are still ongoing and subject to a decision by the applicable court.
