The launch will commence with Turkcell's flagship stores and will eventually be available throughout their 1,200 exclusive Turkcell sales points.  With its 35.2 million subscribers as of September 30, 2012, Turkcell is not only the leading communications and technology company in Turkey, but also and it is the first and only Turkish company ever to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as well as Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE) since July 11, 2000.  Turkey has the 16th largest economy in the world and a young population of 75 million, half of who are aged under 30. These demographics, coupled with a rapid migration of mobile customers to 3G, provide a significant opportunity for Spare Backup in its partnership with Turkcell.

The Spare Backup services will be actively marketed to Turkcell subscribers through multiple channels.  Spare Backup is providing a dedicated support team of up to ten individuals over the next twelve months who will assist on location with in-store promotions, sales training and activations.

Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup, Inc., stated, "We are excited to begin the launch phase with Turkcell as we have spent months gearing up for what we believe is a game changer for our company.  Turkcell is the leader operator in Turkey and through this partnership we gain access to tens of millions of customers including their rapidly growing 3G subscriber base. We believe the successful rollout of our products via this Turkcell launch will serve as a model to the mobile telecommunication industry and quickly lead to additional launches with other Telco's across the globe.  We are leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to make this an unconditional success."
