TELUS Announces Odd Lot Sell Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 17, 2015) - TELUS announced today it is initiating an odd lot selling program for eligible holders of 99 or fewer common shares of TELUS Corporation.

The program benefits shareholders who hold 99 or fewer shares, and want to sell their shares without paying brokerage commissions, avoiding fees that could be a material percentage of their proceeds. Additionally, it allows a participant who does not already have a brokerage account the ability to sell their shares without the inconvenience of opening one.

The program is open to registered and beneficial TELUS shareholders who reside in Canada and own 99 or fewer shares as of the record date of September 16, 2015. The program will run until December 15, 2015, unless otherwise extended, and will operate through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) in compliance with the TSX's policy of Odd Lot Selling and Purchase Arrangements. The program is not available to citizens or residents of the United States or any other U.S. person.

TELUS has arranged for Computershare Investor Services Inc. (Computershare) to manage the program and facilitate the sale of the shares on the market. Qualification details and questions regarding the program should be directed to Computershare by calling toll free from within Canada at 1-800-558-0046.
