TDC A/S

Delisting from NYSE



New York Stock Exchange delisting and material non-compliance with
New York Stock Exchange corporate governance standards


 TDC A/S today requested the New York Stock Exchange to delist its
American Depositary Shares ("ADSs"), evidenced by American Depositary
Receipts, each representing one-half of one ordinary TDC share, par
value DKK 5, from the New York Stock Exchange effective at a later
date.

Furthermore, TDC filed an application with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission for withdrawal of its ADSs and its ordinary
shares from listing on the New York Stock Exchange and from
registration pursuant to Section 12(d) of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934.

This decision has been taken following the acquisition of 88.2% of
TDC's shares by Nordic Telephone Company ApS in a tender offer that
expired on January 20, 2006.

In addition, following the extraordinary general meeting in TDC A/S
held on February 28, 2006, the Board of Directors of TDC does not
include directors that satisfy the "independence" standards under the
New York Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Standards. TDC is
therefore unable to comply with Subsection 303A.06 of the New York
Stock Exchange Listed Company Manual, which requires that the Company
have an audit committee, each member of which satisfies the
independence standards of the New York Stock Exchange. The Board of
Directors of TDC has therefore decided not to form an audit committee
for the time being. As a result, TDC is in material non-compliance
with the New York Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Standards
applicable to foreign private issuers.
