Contec and Danet Join Forces to Deliver Mobile Services to Africa

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - Contec Innovations (TSX VENTURE:BUZ), a mobile service provider, and Danet GmbH, a leading German consulting and information technology service firm, today announced a licensing and revenue sharing agreement to deliver mobile data and managed content services to the African marketplace. Specific details of the first consumer offering will be provided at the time of launch, anticipated to be in the first half of 2008.

"Danet, with tremendous expertise in both telecom and managed services arenas, is a fine partner to support the delivery of robust services to telecommunications operators," says Don Lay, President and CEO of Contec Innovations. "This partnership will service the growing market demand in Africa for mobile web and data services."

Danet has licensed Hornet™, Contec's mobile data infrastructure solution to deliver a broad range of revenue-generating mobile data and content services for the mobile operator. The scalable, carrier-class platform, which Danet operates in a secure hosted environment, supports the rapid development and roll-out of new mobile data services. "We have chosen Hornet because of its great flexibility for integration within an existing mobile network environment and its extended capabilities to launch content, communication and office services with short time to market," says Andreas Klinger, VP Rating & Billing Solutions for Danet.

The terms of the agreement provide Contec with both direct service fee revenue and revenue-sharing income based on mobile subscription uptake. Danet is responsible for fulfilling systems integration and ongoing service delivery operations.
