Net Element Receives 300 Million Rubles ($9.5 Million) Credit Facility And Expects Another 300 Million Rubles ($9.5 Million) Under Factoring Agreement From Alfa-Bank

Net Element ( OTCQB: NETE), a global technology and publishing company that operates in mobile commerce and payment processing, and also publishes popular entertainment portals and destinations, today announced that Alfa-Bank, Russia’s largest private bank, has extended Net Element’s mobile payment processing company, TOT Money, a credit facility of 300 million rubles (approximately $9.5 million) and plans to extend to TOT Money another 300 million rubles (approximately $9.5 million) under a planned factoring agreement to support the company’s next stage of growth and operations.

TOT Money, a mobile payment platform that will facilitate transactions via SMS on any phone and mobile network in Russia, is expected to become the driver of Net Element’s mobile commerce payment processing division.

The current 300 million rubles credit facility, along with the 300 million rubles factoring agreement expected to be executed in the coming weeks, will provide TOT Money with financial resources to attract top customers and build upon its mobile commerce and payment-processing platform for Russia and other emerging markets. When executed, the factoring agreement will call for Alfa-Bank to serve as the collector and processor of accounts receivables for TOT Money, and will provide TOT Money with working capital to support its growth strategy.

“We extended this credit facility to TOT Money based on our extensive due-diligence process and our understanding that the company is well-positioned to capitalize on demand for mobile payment processing,” said Ilina Polina, business development director at Alfa-Bank.

Added Dmitry Kozko, Net Element’s executive vice president: “The credit facility from Alfa-Bank, combined with Net Element’s key relationships with the Big Three mobile operators in Russia, will strategically position TOT Money to become one of the leading companies in Russia’s upcoming mobile commerce boom. With this credit facility and factoring agreement, we hope to strategically grow the TOT Money business and provide TOT Money with the capacity to process mobile payments up to 600 million rubles per month. Furthermore, our business relationship with the prestigious Alfa-Bank is further testament to our company’s business model and growth potential.”
