Vyke Communications Plc (VYKE.L) announced that it has agreed to sell its traditional calling card business to Direct Connect International, L.L.C. The deal is structured on an earn out basis with Vyke expected to get US$1.65 million over the next three years and enables the company to concentrate all of its resources on its core VoIP business.
