("Vyke" or the "Company")


Discretionary working capital facility


Vyke Communications plc (AIM: VYKE), the mobile Voice over Internet Protocol provider, announces that following the successful conclusion of discussions with BLS Telecom LLC ("BLS") as announced on 30 September 2010, it has entered into a discretionary working capital facility with BLS (the "Working Capital Facility").


The terms of the Working Capital Facility enable Vyke to drawdown up to US$ 500,000 in tranches, subject to BLS's discretion. Interest will accrue on any sums advanced to Vyke under the Working Capital Facility at the rate of 8% per annum and will be payable on the date the repayment of the Working Capital Facility in full. Subject to earlier repayment as a result of certain specified events of default, including if Mohammad Asif (or another director appointed by Bonjour Europe Limited ("Bonjour") under the joint venture agreement entered into between Bonjour and Vyke on 11 July 2010 (the "Joint Venture Agreement")) ceases to be the CEO of Vyke or the Joint Venture is terminated, the Working Capital Facility is repayable on 17 February 2011.


Given BLS's relationship with the Company, the Working Capital Facility is considered to be a related party transaction pursuant to Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies. The Company's directors (with the exception of Leonard Carone, Sumeet Bhatt and Bob Passantino who are each senior managers of BLS), having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, Allenby Capital Limited, consider that the terms of the transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.


Mohammad Asif, Chief Executive of Vyke, said: "We are delighted that the Board of BLS continues to show its commitment to Vyke further demonstrating its belief that Vyke has an attractive platform through which BLS intends to direct telecoms traffic. We have now concluded extensive and successful testing of these services.  Bonjour (through BLS and its affiliates) is determined to deliver on its obligations under the joint venture agreement and Vyke looks forward to being in a position to provide further updates to the market at the appropriate time."
