"2009 was an exciting and profitable year for m-Wise. Given the challenges imposed by the downturn in the global economy and the hazards of currency fluctuations, m-Wise continued on its path of sustainable growth and ended 2009 with a profit," stated Mati Broudo, co-founder and executive chairman of m-Wise.

"In the past year we continued to expand our presence in the Americas, we increased volume of sales in the US, expanded our relationships with our clients and engaged new key players in the entertainment industry, such as Fox Mobile Group, Universal Records and Warner Music. In addition, we have also strengthened our position in the growing field of mobile marketing and executed mobile marketing campaigns for companies like Kodak and WPP's Burson Marsteller agency.

We are on track with our strategic plan to establish m-Wise as a market leader and key provider of mobile services in Latin and Central America markets. We view Brazil as a key market for m-Wise and as such, we are excited by the prospects of our first new local presence in the continent. We plan to expand our presence in other Latin American markets as well, such as Mexico and Argentina. Other exciting news demonstrating the capabilities of our technology is a signed contract with Digicel Group of mobile carriers, who selected the m-Wise platform to deliver mobile content services in 26 Caribbean, Central and Latin American markets.

2009 was a significant year for m-Wise as we have been able to emphasize our unique position as an off-deck mobile marketing and mobile entertainment service provider. We have significantly enhanced the underlying technology of our content management and delivery platform and applied numerous improvements that significantly minimizes time-to-market for entertainment companies, content store-fronts and mobile marketing campaigns.

2009 was also an important year in the evolution of mobile entertainment as improved mobile networks and mobile devices became a clear phenomena. We foresee the expansion of mobile video and other rich media services due to improved mobile bandwidth and the growth of wide screen mobile devices. As a result of these favorable market conditions, we expect to see in 2010 more and more businesses looking to establish services and expand their presence in the mobile world. The m-Wise platform is designed to provide these businesses a one-stop-shop and cost effective industrial grade solution for the delivery of all types of digital content, to any device, across multiple geographical regions.

We are confident that we are in a unique position to profit from the growth of the mobile industry, we will continue to expand the reach of our business and our path of profit and growth," concluded Mr. Broudo.
