MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 12, 2010) - Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: ALYI) today released a letter to shareholders from CEO and founder Henryk Dabrowski. The letter includes an overview of the Company's past experiences, including a project team caught in the Haiti earthquake and how those experiences have led to the current plan of operation. The letter also reviews Alternet's partnerships with Utiba Pte Ltd. ( and NewMarket Technology, Inc (PINKSHEETS: NWMT). The letter is included in its entirety below.

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

Alternet is an early stage company and faces both the opportunities and challenges that come with being an early stage company. I am enthusiastic about the promise of our proprietary technology and global business partnerships and I am confident in our experienced Alternet management team. I believe the everyday challenges of being an early stage company that we face and overcome make us even stronger and will enable us to successfully achieve our long-term goals. Surviving a global financial crisis and an earthquake of historic proportion solidifies our resolve even more.

Yes, Alternet was on the ground in Haiti on the day of the earthquake. Alternet is in the business of mobile money transaction systems, and the leading market opportunities for mobile money remittance today are within some of the world's more challenging economic regions. Alternet was working on a project in Haiti. In fact, I was in Haiti myself for key, next step meetings on the day of the earthquake. I would gladly exchange multiple global financial crisis experiences and challenges for the 24 terrifying and humbling hours I spent in Haiti. I am grateful to my wife for managing to coordinate a single engine Cessna to come to my rescue and the rescue of our team. We are fortunate to have survived and ever thankful. We are also awestruck by the role of mobile technology in saving lives in Haiti. Our project in Haiti is a small financial loss, but an overwhelming validation of the demand for mobile money remittances and mobile commerce expansion. Mobile money remittance is not only a tremendous business opportunity, it can change and even save lives. I believe as we begin to communicate more information on both our current and upcoming projects, that you will not only be impressed with the return on investment potential, but the social responsibility benefit as well.

Look for a Webcast presentation later this month on our five-year, $75 million profitable annual revenue outlook. The presentation will include an update of our vision and mission and an overview of our proprietary technologies and key partnerships. We have a strategic partnership with Utiba Pte. Ltd. from Singapore ( and anticipate a number of strategic announcements regarding our Utiba partnership over the coming weeks. We are also participants in the NewMarket Technology Greenfield Partners Program and are already benefiting from the NewMarket partnership with wider market distribution and back office relief. We expect to enhance our organic growth potential to $75 million in profitable annual revenue with a small number of strategic acquisitions. We anticipate potentially executing one or two of those acquisitions this year.

We plan to announce changes to our Board of Directors and the addition of key management with successful industry track records as well as our move to new corporate offices in Coral Gables, Florida. We have learned a great deal about our mobile money and e-ticketing market opportunity through both our ordinary and exceptional early stage company experiences. We believe our refined business plan is sound and we know our determination is resolved. We look forward to sharing more with you as our plan unfolds.

Until then, thank you.
