  Phone and SEQR

Business Wire

STOCKHOLM -- April 25, 2013

Seamless (STO:SEAM), listed on Nasdaq OMX, has entered into an agreement with
Q-Park, Sweden’s largest private operator of car parks with over 1,500
facilities from Luleå in the north to Malmö in the south. Initially, the
agreement means that users will be able to use their mobiles to pay for
parking via SEQR at selected parking facilities in the Stockholm area. Paying
for parking with SEQR is quick and easy, and the user can also extend the
parking time directly via the mobile, without needing to return to the car
park.

Responsible for approximately one million car parking spaces in ten European
countries, Q-Park holds a very strong position. In Sweden, Q-Park is
responsible for approximately 300 000 parking spaces. Its services range from
individual parking services, with rental of parking spaces and parking
surveillance, to overall responsibility for entire parking facilities.

“Enabling people to pay for parking with SEQR is an important step in our work
to make mobile payments a natural part of everyday life. The collaboration
with Q-Park is also proof that our solution is extremely easy to use in almost
any payment situation, from physical stores and public transport to e-commerce
and parking,” says Peter Fredell, President and CEO of Seamless.

Making a payment via SEQR is a very simple and secure procedure. All the
customer needs to do is use the SEQR app in the phone to scan a QR code, and
then approve the transaction by entering their PIN. A customer paying for
parking with SEQR can also extend the parking time directly from their mobile
without needing to return to the car park.

SEQR users have a free account and receive an invoice at the end of the month,
specifying all purchases made. The customer also receives a digital receipt in
the phone immediately after each purchase.

“We see growing interest from customers to pay for parking with their mobiles.
For us, it has been very important to find a solution that meets our basic
requirements for mobile payments. The system must be simple to use and not
entail any extra costs for our customers. After evaluating the solutions
currently available, we’re very pleased to begin collaboration with SEQR. We
feel the system can make payment more convenient and easier for our
customers,” says Peder Ståhlberg, CEO of Q-Park.
