ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
solutions, today announced that Cartrack (Pty) Ltd. (Cartrack) has selected
ORBCOMM to provide satellite data communication services to extend its current
range of GSM logistics and telematics solutions. Cartrack will distribute the
high-performance fleet management solution throughout the African continent
via its growing brand and dealer network.

Cartrack, a leading vehicle tracking and logistics company based in
Johannesburg, South Africa, will use ORBCOMM’s global satellite network to
track and monitor the location, routes and status of its vehicles in
near-real-time. By integrating ORBCOMM’s global satellite communications
service into its telematics solution, Cartrack will helps its customers gain
significant operating advantages and cost savings through an enhanced coverage
footprint and improved visibility and security over their assets even in the
most remote areas of the African continent outside of typical GSM coverage.

“Cartrack’s agreement with ORBCOMM further demonstrates our commitment to the
African market and our industry leadership as the top choice for wireless M2M
services,” said Christian Allred, ORBCOMM’s Senior Vice President of
International. “With the growing importance of cost-effective, reliable
connectivity in powering M2M applications, ORBCOMM will play a pivotal role in
the successful implementation of Cartrack’s telematics solution. In addition,
ORBCOMM’s recent installation of key ground infrastructure in South Africa
will provide even greater network availability and geographic coverage for the
Sub-Saharan countries.”

“Cartrack’s vehicle telematics services require a high standard of
performance, quality and geographic reach, and ORBCOMM meets this need with
ubiquitous global coverage, reliability and integrated M2M services,” said
John Edmeston, Cartrack’s Managing Director. “We are very pleased with the
positive response from our dealer network, which is very excited to offer our
cost-effective tracking and monitoring applications to the African market.”

ORBCOMM and Cartrack will market their joint telematics solution at Satcom
Africa 2013, which is being held in Johannesburg, South Africa from May 28-29.
