IDT Corporation to Sell Fabrix Systems

IDT Corporation (NYSE:IDT), a global provider of telecommunications and
payment services, announced today that it has reached an agreement to
sell its interests in Fabrix Systems (Fabrix) to Ericsson. The sale
price for 100% of the shares in Fabrix Systems is $95 million, subject
to working-capital and other customary adjustments. IDT owns
approximately 78% of Fabrix on a fully diluted basis.

The sale is expected to close in October 2014, subject to customary
conditions. IDT acquired a majority stake in the Israel-based Fabrix in
2007, and the business has grown significantly since then.

Shmuel Jonas, IDT’s CEO, said, “This sale further sharpens our strategic
focus on our growing communications and payments businesses, and
represents another in a string of successful efforts to maximize
shareholder value by selling or spinning off non-core businesses we have
created or nurtured.”

IDT Corporation has spun off three public companies to its shareholders
over the past five years: CTM Media Holdings Inc. (OTC Pink Markets:
CTMMA, CTMMB); Genie Energy Ltd, (NYSE: GNE), and Straight Path
Communications Inc., (NYSE MKT: STRP).

Fabrix is a leading provider of cloud storage, computing and network
delivery for video applications. Fabrix has pioneered a cloud based
scale out storage and computing platform focused on providing a simple,
tightly integrated solution optimized for media storage, processing and
delivery applications such as Cloud DVR, and VOD expansion. Its
innovative approach takes advantage of the latest advances in clustered
storage; grid computing; virtualization and video processing
technologies enabling a wide range of applications.
