Mobiltek clinches systems integration contracts in China

MUMBAI: The US-headquartered Mobiltek Corporation, a global player in interactive mobile value-added services and mobile television services, has secured two new systems integration contracts from two additional telecommunications services providers in China.

Under the terms of the first agreement, Mobiltek has been selected to modify, localize, install and implement a telecommunications system for SMS television. The second agreement calls for Mobiltek to modify, localize, install and implement a telecommunications system for a mobile payment platform. Both contracts include the relevant licensed software and hardware applicable to the U.S. telecom market, said an official statement.

Mobiltek also will be responsible for marketing the services provided in both systems to the US domestic market, and retains the system resale rights in the United States which includes the rights to 80 percent of all gross revenues generated from those sales.

For the period of thirty-six months, the agreements are projected to generate $736,000 in fixed fee revenues for Mobiltek and may represent additional revenues once Mobiltek begins marketing the new services in the Uniated Sttes. The names of the new clients were not disclosed due to signed confidentiality agreements with both client companies, the release added.

"Mobile value-added services are already becoming a major growth industry in China with a meteoric increase in new users that is projected to continue for years to come," said Mobiltek CEO George Moy. "With our established client relationships and a strong pipeline of potential new clients, Mobiltek is ideally positioned to capitalize on this growth and create value for our current shareholders."

China's Ministry of Information reported in May that the Chinese mobile subscriber base has grown to 358 million users nationwide, up from 334 million (revised) at the end of 2004 and well on its way to surpassing the projected growth rate of 17 percent for the year.
