Flint Telecom to Use Ireland as Base to Address the Growing Mobile Remittance and Debit Card Market in Europe and Middle East

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - 06/07/11) - Flint Telecom Group, Inc. (OTC.BB:FLTT - News) ("Flint Telecom" or the "Company"), an international telecoms technology and services organization, announced today that it plans to expand its debit card and mobile remittance operations to Europe and the Middle East by enhancing the Company's existing resources in Ireland. By growing existing operations in Ireland, Flint Telecom aims to provide prepaid debit cards and mobile remittance technology and services to European and Middle Eastern mobile operators, banks and other program sponsors in the region in the second half of 2011.The market for mobile remittance services and prepaid debit cards continues to experience rapid adoption and growth. Juniper Research ("Juniper"), a leading international research firm, recently forecast that, based on gross transaction values driven principally from migrant workers based in developed countries, the international mobile money transfer market will be worth in excess of $65 billion by 2014. Juniper also expects North America and Western Europe to be the main remittance sending regions by that time.Mobile phones provide a new remittance channel with greater reach than traditional methods. Mobile phones now significantly outnumber ATMs, giving mobile operators a level of reach far greater than money transfer providers and banks, and therefore, are uniquely positioned to solve the access problem and drive costs down to levels that open the formal remittance channel to users that would otherwise seek informal methods of remittance. The Irish office is tasked with developing relationships with banks and mobile operators in the region and to strengthen links with our growing number of partner banks in India and Vietnam.Vincent Browne, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Flint Telecom, commented, "I am obviously very pleased to announce enhancement of our operations in Ireland, my home country. Despite the downturn, Ireland, as a key member of the European Union, continues to punch above its weight with regard to attracting foreign investment given its access to European markets, educated and experience workforce and to its firm commitment to low corporation tax. We already have a strong team in Ireland with years of international sales and market development experience that we will leverage to grow our mobile remittance business in these geographies. While we do not expect any revenues from this office in 2011, we are taking the steps now to establish ourselves in these markets, at no additional cost to the group, to establish ourselves as a key player in these markets."About Flint Telecom Group, Inc.Flint Telecom Group Inc. is an international Telecoms Technology Organization with a portfolio of companies that deliver VoIP and wireless communications and prepaid financial products and services globally.
