OnRelay Closes Series D Financing Round to Accelerate International Expansion

London, 17 July 2007 – OnRelay, a pioneer in Fixed Mobile Integration, announces the closure of its Series D finance round. The round was lead by NW Brown and included significant participation from a number of existing OnRelay investors.

Commenting on the investment, Max Bautin of NW Brown who will be joining OnRelay’s board following the investment said: “We are delighted to have led this round of funding for OnRelay. I have known the Company and its founders for a few years and have been struck by both the capabilities and disruptive potential of its product, the quality of its management team and their achievements to date. The Company is already generating substantial revenues and has an impressive client and partner list including Tier 1 operators and Fortune 500 businesses. OnRelay is currently at the forefront of the converged next generation Mobile IP PBX market, a market it is estimated will be worth $15 billion in 2012, with crucially the only known system that allows a mobile to completely replace a deskphone while maintaining full functionality.”

“I am very pleased to have closed this large round of financing after a successfulf first half year. The funds will be used to extend our international expansion into North America and further into Europe and to continue to invest heavily in maintaining our product leadership,” says Marie Wold, OnRelay President & CFO. “We are also earmarking a significant war-chest for IPR protection,” she continues, “the FMC market is heating up, and we make no secret of our view that there is really only one way to implement Mobile PBXs well, and OnRelay holds the patents on the system architecture and call flow methods to do this.”

OnRelay is a profitable, independent software vendor headquartered in the United Kingdom. OnRelay’s global position in the Mobile PBX space has recently been recognised by the WCA, which short-listed OnRelay CEO, Ivar Plahte, as the Most Influential Person in Telecoms for 2007. Previously this year, OnRelay President and CFO, Marie Wold, was shortlisted for the First Women Awards in UK, further testifying to OnRelay’s thought leadership in the fixed mobile arena.
