Delisting of Alcatel-Lucent shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange
Paris - Tokyo – Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) announced today that, on October 29, 2008, its Board of Directors approved the delisting of its ordinary shares listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE).

The Company will submit the application for the delisting of the listed securities to the TSE. When the TSE decides the delisting, the Company’s shares will be allocated to the “liquidation post” which is the post of the TSE through which shares that have been determined to be delisted are traded until the delisting is completed. The Company’s shares will officially be delisted one month after such decision.
The delisting will not have any impact on business activities of Alcatel-Lucent in Japan.
