BCE Regains Full Ownership of - Reduces Ownership in Bell

    MONTREAL, Feb. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - BCE Inc. announced today that it has
regained full ownership of the portal which will be transferred
from Bell Globemedia into Bell Canada. As a result of this and other
transactions announced today, BCE will reduce its ownership level in Bell
Globemedia from 70 per cent to 68.5 per cent.
    "The portal is a key component of Bell Canada's Internet
offering," said Michael Sabia, CEO of BCE Inc. and Bell Canada. "As the role of
a portal evolves from one of providing search functions to one of providing
integrated, easy-to-use communication tools it is critical that continued
development and ongoing management of the portal be more closely
tied to our Sympatico access services."
    Bell's high-speed Internet service now has more than 1.1 million customers
while the portal is currently the most popular Canadian Web
destination for Canadians, welcoming some 6 million unique users per month.
    "The combination of Canada's leading portal with the Internet access
services provided by Bell is an important differentiator in our strategy to
successfully compete in the highly competitive race for broadband services to
the home. The portal and access services together can more simply provide
customers with the applications they want and the customer support they need
from a single trusted source," said Mr. Sabia.
    Bell Globemedia will continue to provide content services to the Sympatico
site under commercial agreements.
    BCE and Woodbridge will each invest a total of $50 million in new common
equity of Bell Globemedia in order to provide a stable financial base from which
it can operate autonomously. Half of this equity, $25 million each, will be from
the conversion of shareholder advances made in 2002. The remaining $25 million
of equity per shareholder will be in the form of cash contributions.
    As a result of the transfer of the portal into Bell Canada and the
additional equity invested by the two shareholders, BCE's ownership will be
reduced to 68.5 per cent.
    Mr. Sabia concluded, "With the changes announced today, Bell Globemedia's
focus is clearly on its two primary businesses, print and broadcast, and on
driving performance and improving profitability in these operations."

    BCE is Canada's largest communications company. It has 25 million customer
connections through the wireline, wireless, data/Internet and satellite services
it provides, largely under the Bell brand. BCE's media interests are held by
Bell Globemedia, which features some of the strongest brands in the industry -
CTV, Canada's leading private broadcaster, and The Globe and Mail, the leading
Canadian daily national newspaper. As well, BCE has extensive e-commerce
capabilities provided under the BCE Emergis brand. BCE shares are listed in
Canada, the United States and Europe.
