"We are thrilled with these record financial results," said Marius Silvasan, CEO of TelePlus.

"The wireless prepaid industry will grow to $32 billion by 2008 and management has positioned TelePlus as a key player in the MVNO arena. With very strong fundamentals, a resilient management team and a clear vision for the future, TelePlus is poised to continue providing sustained value to its shareholders," added Silvasan. "All the elements are now in place for TelePlus to deliver strong top line revenues in excess of $30 million for 2006," commented Silvasan.
