Board of Directors has approved an additional authorization of $25 million for
future share repurchases.

“This increased share repurchase authorization demonstrates TeleTech's ongoing
commitment to driving higher shareholder returns,” said Kenneth Tuchman,
TeleTech’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our strong balance sheet and

shareholders via our buyback program.”

2012, there was a remaining authorization of $26.5 million under a previously

(including statements about future financial and operating performance) are
forward-looking statements based on TeleTech's current expectations. Actual
results and events in future periods could differ materially from those
projected in these forward-looking statements because of a number of risks and
uncertainties including: achieving estimated revenue from new, renewed and

our growth plans, including the successful integration of acquired companies
and the sales of new products; the possibility of lower revenue or price
pressure from our clients experiencing a business downturn or merger in their
business; greater than anticipated competition in the customer management
industry, causing adverse pricing and more stringent contractual terms; risks
associated with losing or not renewing client relationships, particularly
large client agreements, or early termination of a client agreement; the risk
of losing clients due to consolidation in the industries we serve; consumers’
concerns or adverse publicity regarding our clients’ products; our ability to
find cost-effective locations, obtain favorable lease terms and build or
retrofit facilities in a timely and economic manner; risks associated with
business interruption due to weather, fires, pandemic, or terrorist-related
events; risks associated with attracting and retaining cost-effective labor at
our delivery centers; the possibility of asset impairments and restructuring
charges; risks associated with changes in foreign currency exchange rates;
economic or political changes affecting the countries in which we operate;

bodies; and new legislation or government regulation that adversely impacts
