GLOBALIVE NAMED ONE OF CANADA'S BEST MANAGED COMPANIES FOR SEVEN STRAIGHT YEARS

Success attributed to innovative and entrepreneurial corporate culture

TORONTO, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - Globalive Communications Corp., a leading provider of next generation telecommunications solutions globally, was recognized as a Platinum Club Member by Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies; this is Globalive's seventh consecutive year being recognized as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies, leading to this prestigious designation as a Platinum Club Member.

"To be recognized as a Platinum Club Member is a remarkable achievement and rewards Globalive's seven consecutive years qualifying as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies," said Ezio D'Onofrio, Globalive's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Globalive's success has always been founded on its innovative and entrepreneurial culture, which continues to flourish thanks to our incredibly talented and committed team."

In 2009, despite an unprecedented global economic crisis, Globalive experienced its most impressive year of innovation and growth on record. In late 2008 and early 2009, Globalive began its largest and most exciting venture to date by cracking an oligopolistic market - Canada's wireless industry. Throughout the tumultuous year that followed, Globalive continued to introduce new products and services within existing business segments, and launched WIND Mobile, Canada's newest national wireless carrier. WIND Mobile opened its operations in the GTA in late December 2009 and now has service in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa. WIND Mobile has introduced many new wireless innovations to the marketplace including unlimited price plans with no system access fees - offering true value to Canadians and most recently HD (High Definition) Voice.

Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, National Post and Queen's School of Business and established in 1993, the Best Managed award is a national program recognizing Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applications are reviewed by an independent judging panel that evaluates how companies address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
