The new agreement builds on the logistics services Brightstar has provided
Maxis since 2007. Brightstar will deliver a range of supply chain services,
including logistics, strategic sourcing and device portfolio management, along
with specialized value-added services, like buy-back and trade-in and handset
insurance.Brightstar will also drive and implement an innovation roadmap for
new Maxis products.

like Maxis is an excellent opportunity for Brightstar," said Marcelo Claure,

to the Malaysian marketplace, and showing how integrated services provide even
more value than standalone. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts."

capital requirements, improve channel sales performance and combat competitive
pressures.

"Brightstar has a track record of consistent supply chain performance with
Maxis and a deep understanding of our business strategy, needs and
