SAN FRANCISCO -- April 12, 2013

Velti (NASDAQ: VELT), the leading global provider of mobile marketing and
advertising technology, and BlueKai, today announced a mobile data
partnership. As a result of the partnership, brands and agencies using
BlueKai’s Data Activation System now have new access to Velti’s extensive
mobile marketing data, allowing them to more precisely target consumers on
mobile devices.

BlueKai powers the world's most interconnected data marketplace and serves as
the de facto standard for open and transparent audience data-driven targeting.
Through this partnership, BlueKai will license data collected by Velti, on
select publisher sites, providing marketers, brands and agencies with the
ability to increase campaign reach and targeting while reducing waste on
ineffective mobile spend. The aggregated data gives marketers valuable
consumer insights, improving campaign relevance and consumer engagement and
acquisition.

“This partnership brings together the world’s leading mobile and online data
companies to give marketers a way to identify qualified mobile audiences at
scale based on real consumer signals,” said Cory Treffiletti, BlueKai’s SVP of
Marketing. “With this partnership, we are bringing a level of transparent
targeting and depth to mobile that marketers have come to expect in online.”

BlueKai’s Data Activation System allows advertisers and marketers to create
target audiences based on a combination of in-depth first-party and
third-party audience data and activates them for all online marketing
activity. Partners can accurately target campaigns to these audiences across
third-party ad networks and exchanges and measure with accuracy which
campaigns performed the best across segments and channels to refine their
media buys and ad creatives over time. Velti’s Mobclix Exchange, through which
BlueKai will access Velti’s data, is the largest real-time bidding mobile ad
exchange platform and currently delivers 30 billion monthly impressions. The
Exchange has access to data from 35,000 app publishers and 300 million unique
mobile devices and the BlueKai Data Exchange currently has over 85 million
unique users available to power more effective mobile marketing.

“Together we’re creating an industry-leading mobile opportunity for brands,
agencies, publishers and anyone who wants to tap into targeted mobile
advertising,” said Steve Bair, Velti’s VP of Strategic Partnerships. “With
access to this data, partners can better understand their customers, maximize
ad campaign performance and drive sales.”

BlueKai has also enhanced its mobile technology stack by creating the BlueKai
Mobile Privacy Guard, a proprietary technology that ensures consumer anonymity
without compromising any value to the marketer. Based on noise injection
techniques, which are used in various fields to protect anonymity, BlueKai's
Mobile Privacy Guard will substitute random noise with value-added
recommendations.

Both Velti and BlueKai have privacy policies that were designed to ensure that
mobile consumer privacy remains protected at all times. The partnership will
continue to maintain consumer anonymity without compromising any value to the
marketer. For more information regarding Velti’s privacy policy visit:
