Mason Capital Management LLC ("Mason") today issued the following statement in response to the press release issued today by TELUS Corporation (TSX:T; TSX:T.A; NYSE: TU) regarding the reports issued on April 23, 2012, by Institutional Shareholder Services ("ISS") and Glass Lewis & Co. ("Glass Lewis") regarding the proposal by TELUS to convert all of its non-voting shares into voting shares on a one-to-one basis:

"TELUS' claims of ISS and Glass Lewis support are premature. ISS and Glass Lewis did not have the benefit of the reasons for voting against TELUS' proposed share reorganization, which Mason publicly announced yesterday. Glass Lewis has retracted their report and ISS will review our analysis and rationale and update their recommendation accordingly. In addition, TELUS' announcement that it is now offering cash for retail shareholder votes in favor of their plan only demonstrates that the right to vote has real value."

Mason Capital is a New York based investment fund with offices in New York, London and San Francisco and has been in business since 2000. Mason Capital has a long history of investing in Canada. It is the largest shareholder and is represented on the board of directors of ATS Automation Tooling Systems, a TSX-listed company.
