magicJack Expects to Post Over $39 Million in GAAP Revenue and Over $0.70 per Share in Operating Income in Q4 2012 with GAAP Q4 and Whole Year 2012 Income to be Well Above Previous Estimates

 Company Expects to Exit 2012 With Lower Share Count of 18.8
      Million Shares and $40 Million in Cash and Investments

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. and NETANYA, Israel, Dec. 28, 2012 (GLOBE
NEWSWIRE) -- magicJack VocalTec, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CALL, news, filings) (the "Company"),
the Voice Experts and cloud communications leader that invented voice
over IP (VoIP) and sold over ten million magicJacks(R), announces
higher estimates for Q4 and full year 2012. For Q4, the Company expects
to have over $0.70 per share of operating income. These estimates
increased based on lower telecom expenses, higher receipts and a
reduction in legal, advertising, media and other expenses. The Company
had 19.3 million shares outstanding at end of Q3 2012, and cash and
investments of $34.3 million. The Company has reduced share count by
approximately 500,000 shares and increased cash and investments by $6
million since last quarter (Q3 2012). The Company expects to end this
year with approximately 18.8 million shares outstanding and
approximately $40 million in cash and investments, and continues to
drastically reduce its telecom costs while increasing access charge
collections.

Although the Company typically focuses on GAAP numbers, it wants its
investors to clearly understand that the deferred revenue liabilities
reported in Q3 2012 of $127.3 million will end up having a fraction of
that amount of real cash outlay. In other words, under GAAP, deferred
revenue liabilities are not cash liabilities. The Company's liquidity
and cash generation has been so large because deferred revenue
liabilities required only a small cash outlay, and we expect the same
pro rata outlays and possibly better in the future. In the past, the
Company has not broken out many non-GAAP details, but intends to
include more non-GAAP details in future earnings releases. The Company
will continue to inform investors of any developments that may be
deemed important during its buyback program. Operating income does not
include one-time charges including charitable donations and other
income.

magicJack CEO Dan Borislow stated, "Our results for 2012 will exceed
expectations. We leave the year with little litigation and having added
important new assets. Our future goals have been established with
precise plans for achieving them for 2013. I want to thank our
employees for a job well done and a special shout out to Greg Wood,
Peter Russo, Kirill, Dr. Y.W. Sing, Jonathan, Bin, Mary, Greg, Shelby
and the Boys."

The company will host a conference call today for investors at 10:00
a.m. ET. Conference call details are as follows:

  U.S. Toll Free:        1.877.810.3370
