The Opening Bell Ceremony will take place at 9:30 am EDT ( 3:30 pm CEST) at the NASDAQ MarketSite in the heart of Times Square in New York City and will be broadcast live on the seven-story NASDAQ tower.

Jo Lunder commented "We are delighted to join NASDAQ and ring the Opening Bell and celebrate the listing of VimpelCom.
