IDT Corporation Extends the Expiration Date of Its Exchange Offer

IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT, IDT.C) today extended the expiration date of
its previously announced exchange offer of its outstanding Common Stock
(NYSE: IDT.C) for shares of Class B Common Stock (NYSE: IDT).

The deadline for tendering shares of Common Stock in the exchange offer
has been extended from 5:00 p.m. EST, on Tuesday, January 4, 2011, to
5:00 p.m. EST, on Tuesday, January 18, 2011.

IDT is extending the offer to exchange for the following reasons: (i)
today it filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a revised
Offer to Exchange revising its disclosure previously set forth in the
Offer to Exchange and mailed to stockholders in order to respond to
comments received from the SEC; (ii) there were logistic issues in
mailing the exchange offer materials to stockholders and IDT wants to
ensure that all holders have sufficient time to read the materials, make
their determinations and tender if they so desire; and (iii) IDT
recognizes that stockholders may be away during the upcoming holiday
season and therefore may be unable to tender their shares prior to the
original expiration date.

IDT Corporation has been advised that as of 5:00 p.m., EST, on December
20, 2010 approximately 696 shares of its Common Stock had been tendered
in the exchange offer. Tenders of shares of Common Stock must be made,
and may be withdrawn, at any time prior to the expiration of the
exchange offer.

The exchange offer is made upon the terms and conditions set forth in
the Offer to Exchange dated December 2, 2010 and revised as of December
20, 2010, and the related Letter of Transmittal, which have been filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Holders of our Common Stock should read the exchange offer documents as
revised because they contain important information. Stockholders can get
the exchange offer documents without charge from the website of the SEC
