Mobivity, a Leading Cloud-Based Mobile Marketing Provider

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - Mobivity, a Leading Cloud-Based Mobile Marketing Provider

CommerceTel Corporation (OTCBB: MFON), an award-winning provider of proprietary mobile marketing technologies and solutions, announced today that it has acquired Mobivity (http://www.mobivity.com/). This marks CommerceTel's second acquisition in less than 30 days.

"We continue to execute on our strategy of acquiring and integrating complementary mobile marketing businesses. We plan to provide enterprises, brands and agencies with a high quality one stop shop of technologies," said Dennis Becker, CEO. "Our first two acquisitions, TxtStation (closed April 1) and Mobivity, are expected to increase our revenues by over 150%. In addition, this allows us to cross sell CommerceTel's technology to Mobivity's and Txtstation's existing client base."

More than 20 million mobile engagements have been facilitated via the Mobivity SMS solution. CommerceTel plans to enhance the feature set of the solution by adding its award-winning technology so that Mobivity clients can expand their mobile marketing strategy. CommerceTel's lower cost network operating infrastructure is also expected to streamline Mobivity's operating systems and make for a more competitive and profitable service. With thousands of unique visitors seeking mobile marketing services online, the combination of CommerceTel's technology and Mobivity's easy-to-use platform is expected to greatly increase the two companies' combined customer base.

"We believe in CommerceTel's vision and are pleased with the opportunity to be a part of a bigger play in growing the mobile marketing industry," said Greg Harris, CEO of Mobivity. "Combining our business with CommerceTel's resources and technology makes us a more competitive player in this rapidly growing space."

The terms of the transaction are more fully described by CommerceTel in a report on Form 8-K previously filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
