                               DataSMS Holdings Plc ("the Company")
                                            Contract Win

The Board of DataSMS Holdings Plc is pleased to announce a contract win for the supply of their
Tag n go Swift-e child safety wristbands ( to The Co-operative Travel.

After a successful trial of the wristbands in the north east region The Co-operative Travel are to
make the Swift-e available in all of their 550 branches. The sale of the wristbands via the
branches will form part of a 3 year strategy to further increase the Co-operative Travel's market
share in family holidays.

During the remainder of 2008 the wristbands will be offered free as a promotion to anyone booking
a family holiday through any of the high street branches where a minimum of 2,000 wristbands will
be ordered and delivered by the end of August.

From January 2009 the wristbands will be sold to customers booking a family holiday as an
additional travel option in all 550 branches.  This will amount to an initial order for at least
37,000 wristbands to stock all branches generating revenue of £111,000.  Ongoing revenue will then
be generated as the stock is replaced as the bands are sold.

The contract is for an initial 12 months with renewal options for years 2 and 3 built in and is
expected to generate significant revenues in future years if renewed.  This is the largest
contract the Company has entered into since the Tag n go Swift-e child safety wristbands were
launched in September 2007.  By securing an order of this magnitude with a major retailer like The
Co-operative Travel it further endorses the effectiveness of the Tag n go product in the market
place and it is hoped that this will assist in ongoing discussions with other major retailer's.

The Directors of the issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
