Revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $3.3 million, compared with $3.0

profit was $420,000 in the first quarter of 2013, compared to operating profit

$344,000, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $310,000, or

"Our first quarter results were in line with our expectations. The Company is
continuing to develop its Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) activity and
to promote both this activity and the Company's Telecom Expense Management
products through partners, new customer acquisitions and expanding our
existing customer base. In parallel, we are closely monitoring our operating
expenses and we will make the necessary adjustments based on the business
needs and changes we see," said Eytan Bar, CEO of MTS.

The Company further announced today that in meetings held during May 2013, the
Company's audit committee and board of directors approved a resolution that
the compensation terms of Mr. Yaakov Goldman, a director and member of the
audit committee, be equal to the compensation terms of the Company's outside
directors, as defined under Israeli law.

Pursuant to the approval of the audit committee and board of directors,
effective May 8, 2013, Mr. Goldman will be entitled to receive an annual fee,
payable quarterly, of NIS 30,500 (currently approximately $8,500) and a per
meeting attendance fee of NIS 1,700 (currently approximately $470). He
previously received an annual fee of $16,800 and a per meeting fee of $400.
The Company's audit committee and board of directors determined that the
payment of the aforementioned sums to Mr. Goldman complies with the
requirement set forth in Regulation 1A(2) of the Israeli Companies Regulations
(Relief for Transactions with Interested Parties), 2000 (the "Relief
Regulations") as they do not exceed the maximum amounts applicable to the
compensation of the Company's outside directors pursuant to the terms of the
Israeli Companies Regulations (Rules regarding Compensation and Expense
Reimbursement of Outside Directors), 2000.

In accordance with Regulation 1C of the Relief Regulations, if one or more
shareholders holding at least one percent of the Company's issued share
capital or voting rights notifies the Company in writing of their objection to
the provision of this relief no later than fourteen days from publication of
this press release, the relief based on Regulation 1A(2) will not apply and
the change in the terms of Mr. Goldman's compensation will be subject to
approval by the Company's shareholders as required by the Israeli Companies
Law, 1999.
