UBL Interactive Expands Tech Operations to Charleston, South Carolina

CHARLOTTE, N.C. and CHARLESTON, S.C., March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBL Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB:UBLI), a global leader in local and mobile search visibility for businesses since 2007, today announced that it has selected the Flagship2 business center, Charleston's premier incubator/high tech hub, as the new base of operations for the Company's International Technical Development Team.

Situated in downtown Charleston, the Flagship and Flagship2 serve as the center of the nationally recognized Charleston Digital Corridor initiative – a creative effort to attract, nurture and promote Charleston's knowledge economy by facilitating a business, physical and social environment where technology companies thrive. Made possible by the City of Charleston and managed by the Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation, the Flagship is also home to CODEcamp™,where students seeking independent instruction in Web and mobile software technologies come to learn and foster their passion for high technology and digital innovation – and from where UBL anticipates actively recruiting tech-savvy talent to its team.

"By assimilating into the Flagship culture and hiring qualified CODEcamp graduates, there is no doubt that UBL will help to further validate our community-sponsored technical education model, while also providing invaluable perspective on how we may make it even stronger," stated Ernest Andrade, founder and Director of the Charleston Digital Corridor.

When determining where in the country to expand UBL's operations in support of its rapidly growing base of international customers, it chose the Charleston Digital Corridor due largely to the City's demonstrated commitment to supporting and nurturing high-growth technology companies. "The Digital Corridor's Flagship facilities are extraordinary, providing our team with everything necessary to launch our business operations with virtually little to no down time," noted Doyal Bryant, UBL Chief Executive Officer. "The fact that it offers its tenants enterprise-class business and technology services; modern, well-appointed professional office and conference space; and a built-in community of like-minded, high energy people, made it an obvious decision to choose Charleston."

In a welcome letter to UBL, Charleston, Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr. said, "We are very pleased to have UBL Interactive as one of our city's newest corporate citizens. We look forward to having you take full advantage of the powerful combination of business building opportunities, talent and resources that our city has to offer."
