Logicalis acquires Cibercall in Colombia and Ecuador

Datatec Limited ("Datatec", "the Group" or "the Company", JSE/AIM: DTC) the
international Information and Communications Technology (ICT) group, announces
that its subsidiary Logicalis has acquired the Colombian and Ecuadorian
operations of Cibercall S.A. ("Cibercall", the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition
will be made by Logicalis' 60% subsidiary Promon Logicalis Latin America
Limited. The cash consideration has not been disclosed.



The Acquisition further builds Logicalis' presence in Latin America, combining
Cibercall's local market knowledge and strong customer relationships, with
Logicalis' existing ICT solutions portfolio, technical expertise and sound
financial position. Cibercall's main vendor partner is Cisco Systems, and this
acquisition strengthens the already strong Logicalis-Cisco relationship.



Cibercall's solutions portfolio includes implementation, support, training,
help-desk and managed services. Cibercall has 45 employees and achieved
unaudited revenues in excess of $12 million in its financial year ended 31
December 2011.



Jens Montanana, Datatec's Chief Executive commented:



"Cibercall's solution offering and skill base is highly complementary to
Logicalis' and we are delighted to have completed this transaction.

"This acquisition extends Logicalis' Latin American footprint and will enable
the business to pursue a broader range of commercial and telecoms customer
opportunities in the region. Notably, it also provides significant presence in
South America's third largest economy."
