Telvent completes acquisition of DTN

October 28, 2008

October 28, 2008. – Telvent (NASDAQ:TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, today announced that it has successfully completed the acquisition of U.S. business information services provider DTN Holding Company, Inc. (DTN). The acquisition of DTN for $445 million (U.S.), previously announced September 15, 2008, was completed after securing all necessary shareholder, regulatory and financing approvals.

Through this acquisition, Telvent significantly expands its presence in the North American information services market. With more than 700,000 North American subscribers and expected 2008 revenues of $180 million (U.S.), DTN is a leader in delivering real time business information to key decision makers in agricultural, energy and environmental industries. With approximately 700 employees, DTN raises the Telvent headcount to more than 6,000 worldwide, nearly 2,000 of which are based in North America.

The acquisition of DTN represents another important step in Telvent’s strategy for building a sustainable and secure world. DTN’s energy and environmental businesses are highly synergistic with existing Telvent business initiatives, while DTN’s agricultural business adds an important new vertical, perfectly aligned with Telvent’s vision for building a sustainable future. The acquisition also brings to Telvent an important new business model based on recurring subscription revenue and hosted application information services.

“We are extremely pleased to have successfully completed the acquisition of DTN,” stated Manuel Sanchez, Telvent’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We see strong synergies between the two companies that will enable us to deliver new high value-added services to our customers worldwide. These value-added services and solutions are expected to result in new growth, more recurrent revenues and improved operating margins for Telvent.”
