Reference is made to disclosure dated 16th of January 2009 related to
Kapsch TrafficCom AGs (`Kapsch`) purchase of 20.4% of outstanding shares
in Q-Free ASA (`Q-Free`).

Kapsch has subsequently of the disclosure of the purchase of 20.4% of
the shares in Q-Free made contact with the board of directors in Q-Free
for the purpose of starting a dialogue with the company. Due to the fact
that the two companies are in an ongoing competitive situation and
Q-Free still has not received information regarding the
background/intention with regards to Kapsch`s purchase of above
mentioned block of shares, the board in Q-Free considers the purchase of
shares as unfriendly. Q-Free has therefore required Kapsch to comply
with certain conditions before starting a dialogue. Kapsch has so far
not been willing to meet such conditions.

The company has engaged lawyer Einar J. Greve as legal advisor in the
forthcoming process. The company will continue to inform of a possible
development in the process.
