Montec Holdings Inc. announces acquisition of telecom management services business from Yak Communications



    MONTREAL, June 5 /CNW/ - Montec Holdings Inc. ("Montec" or the "Company")
(TSX-V: MTE), a holding company focused on acquiring and developing a
diversified portfolio of high-growth technology companies, today announced its
subsidiary Datex Billing Services Inc. ("Datex") has acquired the telecom
expense management services business of Contour Telecom Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Yak Communications (Canada) Corp. ("Yak Communications").
Contour is an outsourced provider of telecom management services including
consolidated billing, sophisticated cost management and robust reporting.
    The acquired business is synergistic to Datex's activities and brings
diversification to Datex's billing and customer management services. The
acquired business has many Fortune 1000-type clients that will enhance Datex's
presence and service offering to tier-one companies. This transaction moves
Datex into the much larger enterprise market, whereas Datex has dealt almost
exclusively in the carrier market niche up to now. Datex also secures a
revenue stream as Contour has been a Datex client for the past four years.
Additionally, this acquisition brings to Datex a number of highly experienced
telecom personnel which reinforce Datex's internal operational capacities.
    "We think that this new business unit dovetails into the Datex model of
outsourced customer management and billing services and we are delighted to
bring to Datex a number of Fortune 1000 clients that can benefit from Datex's
years of telecom experience. Our first task will now be to ensure the
successful integration of this division's activities to Datex; an operational
plan has already been deployed to that effect," said Jim Dawson, president of
Datex.
    "This acquisition perfectly fits Montec's business plan of buying
profitable companies that will create additional synergies within the group,"
said Myer Bentob, President and Chief Executive Officer of Montec Holdings
Inc.
