SelectCore to Launch International Mobile Top-Up

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2010) - SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SCG), a provider of prepaid telecom and prepaid financial solutions is pleased to announce that the company will be launching international mobile top-up service on its PrepaidONE platform this March. SelectCore will be one of the first companies in Canada to offer this service through its nation-wide retail network of convenience and grocery stores.

Following the growing trend of global money remittance, international mobile top-up allows Canadian immigrants to stay connected with their friends and family abroad by purchasing mobile airtime on their behalf here in Canada. The recipient instantly receives a text message notifying them that their account has been topped-up in their local currency. 

SelectCore will offer airtime top-up for more than 70 mobile operators in over 50 countries around the world including Tigo, Claro, Telcel, Digicel, Vodafone and Orange to name a few. Together, these operators represent a market of nearly 400 million prepaid mobile subscribers worldwide.

"Offering international top-up allows us to reach beyond our domestic market to generate a new source of revenue" commented Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore "There has been a growing demand in the US market, and we expect similar adoption here, in one of the world's most ethnically diverse countries"
