Retirement of Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Synchronica, an international developer and provider of mobile device management and synchronization solutions, announces the retirement from today of Allan Jonnes as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director. A further announcement will be made in due course regarding Mr. Jonnes' already identified replacement, who has agreed to join the Company as soon as he is free of existing contractual commitments, expected to be in no more than two weeks' time. This planned succession is directly in line with Synchronica's strategy of strengthening the Board with international software and mobile industry specialists who can help the Company achieve its worldwide sales and distribution goals.

The new CFO, who comes from the software industry, was instrumental in listing his previous employer's business on AIM and in successfully completing subsequent fund raisings, as well as establishing the company's wholly owned development and support base in India and building the business, organically and by acquisition, from 1m to 6m turnover.

Carsten Brinkschulte, Synchronica CEO commented: 'I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Board to thank Allan Jonnes for all his support especially through my appointment as CEO and the recent company restructure. He leaves behind sound financial systems which will serve us well in the future.'

'I look forward to formally welcoming our new CFO shortly. His appointment forms a key part of our commitment to cultivate a comprehensive team, both at Board and operational level. This will enable Synchronica to take full advantage of the growing mobile technology market in which we operate and to enhance what the Board believes is a unique position and compelling business model.'

Synchronica has previously announced that Preliminary Results for the year to 31 December 2005 will be released on 25th April and the CEO and newly appointed CFO will attend shareholder meetings thereafter.
