Viper Networks, Inc. (VPER) Announces $10 Million Institutional Funding Commitment

TROY, MI--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - Viper Networks, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VPER), a telecommunication network operations and technical management company, announces that it has secured an institutional funding commitment with a private equity firm based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for $10,0000,000 (U.S. dollars) with an option for an additional $5,000,000.

This non-dilutive, debt financing is a direct obligation of the company's previously announced India Joint Venture with Cirilium India Pvt. Ltd. and not Viper Networks, Inc. Upon repayment, the investor will retain a minority interest in the India Joint Venture. The financing will be funded in $2,500,000 traunches and will be used for equipment, expanding routes and working capital.

As a condition of this recent arrangement, Viper Networks has made available one seat on its Board of Directors, to be filled at the institutional investor's discretion.

Commenting on the debt financing commitment, Farid Shouekani, President of Viper Networks, Inc., said, "The funding transaction announced today is a powerful validation of the company's licenses, technology and business strategy, especially at a time when the pressure is on telecom operators to generate new income and reduce capital expenditures. We are particularly delighted that they have decided to play a key role in taking Viper Networks to the next stage of our development. We believe that the real value of their involvement represents significantly more than their debt financing commitment. The firm's proactive contribution to the management and future direction of our company is a very exciting prospect indeed, given its highly successful track record with its portfolio companies."
