Telvent acquires assets of Northern Lakes Data Corp.

February 3, 2009

Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, and Northern Lakes Data Corp. (NLDC) announced today that they have signed an asset purchase agreement through which Telvent will acquire certain of the assets of NLDC, including TollPro back office software. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The advanced TollPro application has seamless end-to-end integration of all back office functions including customer service, violations processing, and business management. Purdue University has given the SR-91 customer service operations using the TollPro back office software suite the highest rating for Customer-Driven Quality.

The acquisition of NLDC´s back office will enable Telvent to offer its customers worldwide a complete end-to-end electronic toll collection (ETC) solution, which combines the most highly accurate, independently audited, in-lane system of Telvent with the fully auditable NLDC back office. With this acquisition, Telvent reinforces its position as a leading supplier of ETC systems worldwide, helping to manage toll operations accurately throughout the enterprise while minimizing drivers' inconvenience.

NLDC has offered world-class, proven back office solutions, as well as consulting and systems integration services to the ETC industry in the USA and abroad since 1993. Notable projects in the United States include the E-470 Public Highway Authority, 91 Express Lanes in California, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Around the world, NLDC has contributed to other significant projects like a state-of-the-art Open Road Tolling (ORT) project in the Middle East and the Citra Metro Manila Skyway and South Luzon Expressway in the Philippines.

According to Telvent's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Manuel Sanchez, "This strategic acquisition allows us to offer our customers worldwide a turnkey ETC solution with high operating end-to-end performance and it is an investment that ensures compatibility with future applications". Moreover, "congestion and sustainability issues are problems impacting the world globally. Nowadays, most greenhouse gas emissions occur at the lowest speeds and ETC permits vehicles to travel at free flow speeds, reducing delays and GHG emissions; thus, improving the quality of life and the health of our planet" Manuel Sanchez stated.
