Waste Deep, Inc. Enters Into a Business Combination With Digerati Technologies, Inc.

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/12 -- Digerati Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DTGI) (OTCQB: DTGI), an established and award-winning provider of cloud communication services, today announced that it has entered into a transaction in anticipation of a definitive agreement for a business combination via the acquisition of 100% of the outstanding capital stock of Waste Deep, Inc. Waste Deep, Inc. is an oil field services company with an initial focus in the Bakken Formation (the "Bakken"). The stockholders of Waste Deep, Inc. will receive newly issued shares of DTGI preferred stock, which will be convertible into DTGI Common Stock shares. As part of the business combination, new officers and directors will be appointed; Mr. John Howell as CEO and director.

The business combination will not impact Digerati's current operations and customers. The Company will continue to provide cloud communication services through its operating subsidiaries. As a result of the transaction, Digerati will be positioned to provide its cloud-based telephony services to the rapidly expanding Oil and Gas industry, a lucrative vertical market for the Company.

Arthur L. Smith, outgoing Chief Executive Officer of Digerati Technologies, Inc., stated, "The business combination with Waste Deep, Inc. is a significant milestone for Digerati that is crucial to the future success of the Company, for both our current shareholders and customers. Waste Deep, Inc.'s current operational subsidiaries have the revenue and earnings that will enhance our shareholders' value. Our current management team will be able to focus on gaining momentum in the marketplace through Digerati's existing operating subsidiaries. Current management will retain control of the existing operations within a new subsidiary named Shift8 Technologies, Inc., and will remain as such until the subsidiary's value makes financial and operational sense to operate independently."

Incoming Chairman and CEO, John Howell, continued, "This business combination provides what we believe to be an increased value for current shareholders. Oil field services organizations in the Bakken are experiencing growth rates that provide an excellent platform for acquisitions that take advantage of the arbitrage between public and private acquisition multiples. We look forward to adding other accretive acquisitions in the future."
