Telvent awarded the 2008 Edition Prince Felipe Prize for Business Excellence in the Information Society and Information and Communications Technologies category

June 19, 2008

Madrid, June 19, 2008 - Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, today announced that the Company has received the 2008 Edition Prince Felipe Prize of the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade for Business Excellence in the Information Society and Information and Communications Technologies category, which last year was awarded to Telefónica. Telvent was also nominated for the 2008 Edition Prince Felipe Prize for Business Excellence in Internationalization.

Manuel Sanchez, Telvent’s Chairman, accepted the award from H.R.H. the Prince of Asturias during the ceremony that took place today at Madrid Municipal Conference Center and also had the attendance of Miguel Sebastian, the Minister for Industry, Commerce and Tourism.

The 2008 Edition Prince Felipe Prize recognizes the significant role that the Company plays in the development and evolution of the Information Society. Telvent helps to reach a level of technological maturity and social acceptance that makes it impossible to approach resolving any of the world concerns without employing Information Technologies.

These awards are established as the highest recognition of business excellence in Spain. They acknowledge the merit and attest to the prestige of Spanish companies that have made a significant effort in achieving excellence through their management, and serve to encourage other businesses to keep working toward this end.

From the beginning of its business activity, Telvent has continuously worked toward improving management in the Energy, Transportation, Environmental and Public Administration sectors. Due to its constant commitment to Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&i), Telvent contributes through its solutions to integrating information technologies into the daily lives of all citizens, thus enabling the advancement of an Information Society.

The Company was also nominated for the Internationalization category. Telvent is recognized for its character and international vocation; this is further supported by the fact that since its IPO in 2004 Telvent is the only Spanish company that is listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market, which includes the world's leading technological companies. Likewise, in November of 2007, Telvent’s shares were transferred to the NASDAQ Global Select Market -the market tiers at NASDAQ that encompasses companies with the most stringent listing standards- for its commitment to financial transparency and Corporate Social Responsibility. In March, 2008, Telvent was selected to join the Cleantech IndexTM (CTIUS), the first and only equity index intended to reflect the surging global demand for technological products and services that contribute to sustainability.

Telvent has always demonstrated noteworthy international vocation and, today, enjoys a very significant permanent presence in North America, Latin America and China.
