Alimutu Technologies Management Corp. operates in its headquarters in New York City as a private capital enterprise. Its Brazilian affiliate working in the field of technological solutions for cellular telephony and wireless payments, Samba38.com, has signed contract with Vivo, the biggest cellular telephone operator in Brazil.

Samba38.com is a worldwide-patented system developed by Alimutu, which allows the reselling of credits from a prepaid cellular directly to another cellular phone by means of SMS. Samba38.com operates and functions 24 hours a day. Credits authorization is performed in seconds. Furthermore, there are no additional costs for the user. The credit value is the same used by the telephone operator. Samba38 system is compatible with the main interface systems used by the operators, such as GSM, CDMA and TDMA.

New Business Director Valdir Arnaldo has opted for the distribution of services in Brazil through franchises. "The choice for was due to the success observed in franchising models and the rate of mobile telephone service expansion in the country." said Mr. Arnaldo. From 2000 to 2005, the franchising market in Brazil expanded from 600 to 950 distribution networks that amounted over R$35 billion in 2005. The option for Brazil is also due to the growth, which topped 100 million cellular telephone lines in January of 2007. Approximately 80% of these cellular telephone lines are prepaid cellular phones.

Reduction in distribution costs and increases in the average revenue per user are some of the advantages for cellular telephone operators to align themselves with the Samba38 system. "The advantages for the small entrepreneurs include the possibilities of working in an innovative business, with balanced risks and possibility drawing huge profits from an enormous and ever expanding market." Added Mr. Arnaldo. Entrepreneurs with more resources and capital investors have the opportunity to profit in a even greater manner by profiting from both managing their regional franchisees and by the business they generate.

Alimutu Technology Management Corp. expects to attract 600 franchises initially all over the country providing more than 100 thousand working points for resellers, who work with the main cellular telephony operators. The resellers will be trained in real time by the franchiser in partnership with a well-know university in São Paulo. The resellers will have their performance monitored on a daily basis with the support of a "business intelligence" developed, patented worldwide and customized for this particular business.

The expectation is that the investment made by the franchisee or master franchisee yields within a period from 12 to 14 months. For further information on the franchising is available at http://www.samba38.com.
