Pareteum Eliminates Atalaya Senior Secured Debt
Substantially Improves Cashflow

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, December 19, 2017 – Pareteum Corporation (NYSE American: TEUM), (“Pareteum” or the “Company”), a leading communications technology provider to global Mobile, MVNO, Enterprise and IoT markets, today announced that it has paid its lender $8.1 million, the remaining balance of its senior secured loan from Atalaya Capital Management and Corbin Capital (“Lenders”). Pareteum immediately improves cash flows and prospects for growth by removing security interests of the lenders and eliminating the loan, with its interest and amortization, prior to the current maturity date of December 31, 2018 .

Hal Turner, Executive Chairman and Principle Executive Officer of Pareteum, added, “Our successful Debt repayment is one of the key elements of the corporate turnaround at Pareteum which began in Q4 2015. This debt financing package, originally implemented by the Company’s former management, was no longer optimized for the exciting value-generating and growth stage of our business plans. We thank the Lenders for their support during the challenging restructure period. We also look forward to focusing on the continued sales surge by making investments in the business which we expect to deliver maximum value for our equity investors.”
