MINDEN, Nev., Jan. 10, 2013
MINDEN, Nev., Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Spare Backup, Inc. ("Spare
Backup") (OTCQB: SPBU), a provider of data backup and security software for
smartphones, tablets and PCs, announced today that Turkcell and Spare Backup
have begun the launch of a progressive rollout of Spare Backup's mobile backup
and security tools to Turkcell's 35 million mobile subscribers.
The launch will commence with Turkcell's flagship stores and will eventually
be available throughout their 1,200 exclusive Turkcell sales points. With its
35.2million subscribers as of September 30, 2012, Turkcell is not only the
leading communications and technology company in Turkey, but also and it is
the first and only Turkish company ever to be listed on the New York Stock
Exchange (NYSE) as well as Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE) since July 11, 2000.
Turkey has the 16^th largest economy in the world and a young population of 75
million, half of who are aged under 30. These demographics, coupled with a
rapid migration of mobile customers to 3G, provide a significant opportunity
for Spare Backup in its partnership with Turkcell.
The Spare Backup services will be actively marketed to Turkcell subscribers
through multiple channels. Spare Backup is providing a dedicated support team
of up to ten individuals over the next twelve months who will assist on
location with in-store promotions, sales training and activations.
Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup, Inc., stated, "We are excited to begin the
launch phase with Turkcell as we have spent months gearing up for what we
believe is a game changer for our company. Turkcell is the leader operator in
Turkey and through this partnership we gain access to tens of millions of
customers including their rapidly growing 3G subscriber base. We believe the
successful rollout of our products via this Turkcell launch will serve as a
model to the mobile telecommunication industry and quickly lead to additional
launches with other Telco's across the globe. We are leaving no stone
unturned in our efforts to make this an unconditional success."
