Combined Company Provides Most Complete Solution for Mobile Web, Apps and Content on Any Wireless or Internet-Connected Device

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey and GUILDFORD, England, February 7, 2011 - Antenna Software (, Inc., enabling
business transformation and consumer engagement through intelligently
designed mobile applications, today announced it has acquired mobile internet
software company Volantis Systems Ltd ( The
combination of Antenna's proven mobile apps technology with the ability now
to harness the power of the mobile internet, uniquely positions the company
as a complete, end-to-end mobile solutions provider for enterprises and
carriers. This strategic acquisition makes Antenna the market leader for
mobility solutions that address the needs of all users across all
internet-connected mobile devices - from smartphones and tablets through to
browser-enabled feature phones.

"According to a recent IDC forecast, in 2011 half of all web users are
going to be mobile web users, and by 2014 we estimate they will have
downloaded 76.9 billion apps," said Nick McQuire, IDC's Research Director for
EMEA Enterprise Mobility. "It's clear that no company can afford to have just
a mobile website strategy or just a mobile apps strategy. As such, the
combined experience and capabilities of Antenna and Volantis make them well
positioned to take advantage of the way in which the mobile internet is
developing on a global scale."

Operating under the Antenna brand, the combined company will continue to
provide full support of Volantis' products to its current customers,
prospects and partners through its existing teams in the Volantis offices in
Guildford, Seattle, Krakow, Pune and Hong Kong -strengthening Antenna's
global presence, particularly across Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The addition of Volantis' complementary technology allows Antenna to
immediately offer its customers a significantly broader range of mobile web
solutions, including the underlying architecture for mobile commerce and
enterprise app stores. This adds to Antenna's already robust on-demand (SaaS)
Antenna Mobility Platform(TM) (AMP ( offering, which powers
the company's suite of mobile business and consumer applications.

"This is truly a watershed moment for Antenna that takes us closer to our
vision of being the mobile platform for the Global 1000," said Jim Hemmer,
President and CEO of Antenna. "With Volantis as part of the Antenna family,
our customers can go to a single provider for all their mobility needs. Our
mobile solutions not only manage the complex requirements of the workforce
but also the mobile demands of millions of consumers who want to interact
with a brand on the go across myriad devices. In a highly fragmented channel,
Antenna creates order out of chaos and delivers a consistent and compelling
mobile experience to all."

Volantis brings to Antenna a wealth of carrier and enterprise customers,
including T-Mobile, 3, Telenor, Garanti Bank and Reliance Capital. The
Volantis customer portfolio deepens Antenna's already robust carrier
portfolio and extends the company's vertical offerings across the financial
services, retail, travel, transport, media and entertainment industry

"Volantis has spent the past decade developing a best-of-breed solution
for the mobile internet," said Mark Watson, former CEO and Co-Founder of
Volantis. "Our goal has always been to make the mobile web as accessible as
possible to enterprises and consumers, with the most robust technology to
support the solution. Joining with Antenna will allow us to continue to
invest in the development of our technology while co-innovating as part of
the Antenna team to help drive success for the combined company going
