West Palm Beach, FL, and Netanya, Israel – November 23, 2011 - magicJack VocalTec, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CALL, news, filings), the Voice Experts that invented voice over IP (VoIP) and sold over eight million magicJacks®, announced today two major retailers are reporting the largest sales ever of magicJack products. Presently these are the only two large retailers with enough inventory of magicJack PLUS able to keep up with demand. The company expects sales of magicJacks to be approximately 400,000 to 500,000 in a 90-day period starting in September.
magicJack CEO Dan Borislow states: "A difficult economy seems to be a fertile environment to sell magicJack products. For that matter, we would guess a strong economy might produce the same results. Presently we are seeing approximately two magicJack PLUS’ being sold for every one original magicJack being sold in these two retailers. The retail price of the magicJack PLUS is approximately $69.95 and the retail price of the original magicJack is $39.95. The company has been able to keep up with demand so far, except for shipping 10,000 magicJacks two weeks later than requested. We are also hiring more customer service agents and have a major upgrade coming out for magicJack Plus and magicJack APP this week."
The company expects to continue to update sales data during the release of magicJack PLUS.
