DUBAI, UAE, January 18, 2011 - Carl Tack has recently joined Delta Partners as a Managing Partner and
the Head of Corporate Finance, based in Dubai. Carl Tack has 25 years of
investment banking experience, much of it in the international telecoms
sector, and he is widely respected for the integrity of his advice to clients
in large and complex transactions.

Prior to Delta Partners, Mr. Tack was a Vice Chairman, Investment Banking
at Deutsche Bank and global co-head of their telecoms investment banking
team, based in London. He began his career as a corporate lawyer, with
Kirkland & Ellis in Chicago, and worked in various corporate finance
positions at Salomon Brothers and Merrill Lynch before joining Deutsche Bank.

"Delta Partners is the leading management advisory and investment firm
across emerging markets and one of our goals is to enhance our current
service offering with a high impact corporate finance advisory practice. Our
focus will be on economic value enhancement for our clients through the
provision of integrated strategic, operational and financial advice across
the value chain. We are delighted that Carl Tack has joined the firm in this
important role" said Victor Font, Group Managing Director in Delta Partners.

"Most investment bankers provide their clients with good advice on how to
get deals done, but poor advice on which deals to do and more broadly how to
create value for their shareholders. The history of Telecoms M&A in
particular is not a good one from a shareholder value perspective. At Delta
Partners, we offer our clients transactional and non-transactional advice
that will help them create and protect shareholder value, and we expect
regularly to advise our clients not to pursue transactions which cannot be
structured to accomplish this objective. Our firm will continue to prosper
with our clients and their shareholders, and not at their expense" added Carl

Mr. Tack has also served as an Executive in Residence at London Business
and as a Lecturer in Finance at Imperial College London. Carl is an
American / British national and holds a J.D. from The University of Chicago
Law School as well as a BA in Economics from The College of William and Mary.
