TRANSCOM TO PROPOSE EXTRAORDINARY DIVIDEND AT ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING


TRANSCOM TO PROPOSE EXTRAORDINARY DIVIDEND AT ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Transcom WorldWide S.A. (“Transcom”), the European CRM and debt collections specialist, today announced that the Board will propose a one-time extraordinary dividend of €25 million, amounting to €0.35 per share, to be approved by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held on 30 May 2006. If approved by shareholders, the dividend would be paid in June 2006.

This dividend is being proposed because Transcom has generated more cash over the past two years than the Company can employ in the short-term while having grown revenues by 55.4% over the same period. Transcom will continue to focus on investing cash appropriately in the development of the business, in particular concentrating on debt collection acquisitions, partnerships with European debt portfolio purchasers and the expansion of its nearshore services across Europe.

Transcom also announced today that a revolving Euro-denominated credit facility of €50 million has been arranged with SEB Enskilda for general corporate purposes. This new facility, combined with Transcom’s modest debt position and solid cashflow generation, provides the Company with a strong platform for future growth and further strategic investments.
