Distribution Agreement With MGCE Boosts Mitel's Opportunities in French Market

PARIS, April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a
leading provider of cloud and premises-based unified communications and
collaboration (UCC) solutions, today announced it has signed a distribution
agreement with MGCE, one of France's biggest telecommunications distributors.
With this agreement MGCE is certified to distribute Mitel's IP telephony and
unified communications applications to its resellers, enhancing Mitel's
ability to grow its addressable market in France.

The combination of MGCE's distribution power and brand name with Mitel's
solutions ideally position both companies for growth.

"The agreement with MGCE is a logical extension to our go-to-market model in
France," said Lionel Hovsepian, vice president sales for Southern and Eastern
Europe at Mitel. "We have an existing distribution agreement with Arrow
Enterprise Computing Solutions (ECS) to serve the IT and VMware channels and
now, with MGCE, we are also able to address the French voice channel. I am
very pleased to expand our channels with the addition of MGCE, who has such an
established reputation in the French telecom market."

In addition, the agreement opens up significant new French purchasing groups
to Mitel.

"It is a pleasure to add Mitel as a key supplier to MGCE. With its solid
reputation in unified communications, we will be able to offer our customers
more choice and innovation," said Eric Andrea, MGCE Managing Director. "We are
