TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 07, 2013) -Redknee Solutions Inc. (TSX: RKN), a leading provider of business-critical billing and charging software for communications service providers, is pleased to announce that a leading EMEA mobile operator, and an acquired customer, has signed a multi-million dollar contract to expand licenses for Redknee's converged billing solution.

This software license capacity expansion highlights both the value that Redknee is providing to communications service providers to monetize their next generation investments, as well as the confidence our customer base has in Redknee's leadership in the industry. Redknee will continue to invest in our market-leading portfolio in order to advance our position as the real-time monetization software provider of choice to communications service providers and other verticals around the world."
