ITEM 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Equity Purchase Agreement and Software Purchase Agreements

On October 15, 2021, Evolving Systems, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company") entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement (the "Equity Purchase Agreement") and two Software Purchase Agreements (the "Software Purchase Agreements" and, together with the Equity Purchase Agreement and the other transaction documents described therein, the "Purchase Agreements") with subsidiaries and affiliates of PartnerOne Capital, Inc. (the "Purchasers"). The Purchase Agreements contemplate the sale and transfer of substantially all of the Company's operating subsidiaries and all of its assets to the Purchasers for an aggregate purchase price of $40 million (subject to adjustment as set forth in the Equity Purchase Agreement). The Purchase Agreements include customary terms and conditions, including an adjustment to the purchase price based on the Company's cash and cash equivalents on hand as of the closing date and provisions that require the Company to indemnify the Purchasers for certain losses that it incurs as a result of a breach by the Company of its representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreements and certain other matters.

Proceeds from the sale will be payable as follows: (1) a $37.50 million payment to the Company in cash on the closing date (subject to an adjustment as set forth in the Equity Purchase Agreement), and (2) $2.50 million placed in escrow on the closing date as security for the Company's indemnification obligations to the Purchasers under the Purchase Agreements, which amount will be released to the Company on or before the first business day following the date that is twelve months from the closing date (less any portion of the escrow used to make indemnification payments to the Purchasers).

The Purchase Agreements contain customary representations and warranties of each of the parties. The Purchase Agreements contain indemnification rights in favor of the Company following closing for (i) breaches of any of the representations or warranties by the Purchasers including, but not limited to, breaches related to organization, authorization, and governmental authorization, and (ii) breaches of the covenants or agreements of the Purchasers in the Purchase Agreements. In addition, the Purchase Agreements contain indemnification rights in favor of the Purchasers following closing for (i) breaches of certain fundamental representations and warranties by the Company, including breaches related to organization, authorization, capitalization, title to purchased assets, and finders' fees, (ii) breaches of any of the representations and warranties by the Company, and (iii) breaches of the covenants or agreements of the Company in the Purchase Agreements.

The completion of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreements are subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of the transactions by the Company's stockholders.

The Equity Purchase Agreement prohibits the Company and its subsidiaries and representatives from soliciting, providing information or entering into discussions concerning proposals relating to alternative acquisitions proposals, subject to certain limited exceptions. However, during the period from October 15, 2021 and continuing until 11:59 p.m. (EST) on November 15, 2021 (the "Go-Shop Period"), the Company is permitted to solicit, or initiate any acquisition proposal and engage in, enter into, continue or otherwise participate in any discussions or negotiations with respect to any acquisition proposal. At the end of the Go-Shop Period, the Company will cease such activities, and will be subject to customary restrictions on its ability to solicit third party proposals relating to alternative transactions or to provide information to and engage in discussions with a third party (other than any Excluded Party, as described below) in relation to an alternative transaction, subject to certain customary exceptions to permit the Company Board to comply with its fiduciary duties. However, the Company may continue to engage in the foregoing activities with any third party that made an acquisition proposal prior to the end of the Go-Shop Period (each, an "Excluded Party"), but only for so long as such third party's acquisition proposal is available to the company. Upon the withdrawal or termination of an acquisition proposal from an Excluded Party, such party shall no longer be an Excluded Party. The Company has engaged ValueScope, Inc. to act as the Company's investment banker during the Go-Shop Period.

The Purchase Agreements contain specified termination rights for the parties. The Company has the right to terminate the Purchase Agreements if it enters into a definitive agreement in respect of a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Equity Purchase Agreement), provided that the Company complies with certain notice and other requirements set forth in the Equity Purchase Agreement. In such event, the Company may be required to pay the Purchasers a termination fee equal to $2.0 million.

Simultaneously with the execution of the Purchase Agreements, Singer Children's Management Trust (the "Stockholder"), which holds approximately 20.8% of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock, entered into a Voting Agreement with the Purchasers (the "Voting Agreement"). The Voting Agreement requires the Stockholder, so long as the Voting Agreement has not terminated in accordance with its terms, to vote in favor of the Company's consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreements. The Voting Agreement and the obligations of the Stockholder will terminate upon, among other things, the termination of the Purchase Agreements, the withdrawal by the board of directors of its recommendation that stockholders vote to approve the Purchase Agreements, or the entry by the Company, without the prior written consent of the Stockholder, of an amendment to the Purchase Agreements or a waiver of any term thereof which results in a material decrease in, or material change in the composition of, the purchase price payable under the Purchase Agreements. The Voting Agreement does not limit or affect any actions or omissions taken by any affiliate of the Stockholder in its capacity as a director or officer of the Company and may not be construed to prohibit, limit, or restrict any stockholder (whether or not affiliated with the Stockholder) from exercising its fiduciary duties as an officer or director of the Company or its remaining stockholders.

Simultaneously with the approval by the board of directors of the Company (the "Board") of the Company's execution of the Purchase Agreements, the Board formed a subcommittee of the Board (the "Investment Committee") to evaluate options to maximize the value of the Company's assets, which, following the closing of the transactions contemplated under the Purchase Agreements, will consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents. The Board has authorized the Investment Committee to retain such counsel, experts, consultants or other professionals as the Investment Committee shall deem appropriate from time to time to aid the Investment Committee in the performance of its duties.

A copy of the Equity Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1. Copies of the Software Purchase Agreements are attached hereto as Exhibits 2.2 and 2.3. The description of the material terms of the Purchase Agreements in this Item 1.01 is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibits, which are incorporated herein by reference.

4.2Go-Shop; Acquisition Proposals.

(a)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, during the period beginning on the date of this Agreement and continuing until 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, on November 15, 2021 (the "Go-Shop Period End Date" and such period, the "Go-Shop Period"), Parent, the Group Companies and their Representatives shall have the right to directly or indirectly (i) encourage, solicit, initiate, facilitate or continue inquiries regarding an offer or proposal that constitutes, or could reasonably be expected to lead to, an Acquisition Proposal, including by providing information (including non-public information and data subject to a confidentiality agreement) relating to Parent and the Group Companies and affording access to the businesses, properties, assets, books, records or personnel, of Parent and the Group Companies to any Person (and its Representatives, including potential financing sources of such Person) in connection therewith and (ii) enter into discussions or negotiations with any Person (and their respective Representatives, including potential financing sources of such Person) concerning a possible Acquisition Proposal; provided however, Parent, the Group Companies and their Representatives shall not disclose any non-public information about Buyers or the Transaction, without prior written approval of the Buyers. For purposes hereof, "Acquisition Proposal" means any inquiry, proposal or offer from any Person (other than Buyers or any of their Affiliates) relating to the direct or indirect disposition of all or any portion of the Group Companies or the Business (including by way of stock sale, asset sale, license, merger, consolidation, business combination, joint venture or similar transaction or series of transactions). Parent shall provide Buyers with prompt notice of all Acquisition Proposals.

(b)Subject to Section 4.2(c), from the Go-Shop Period End Date until the Closing or, if earlier, the termination of this Agreement in accordance with Article 6, Parent shall not, and shall not authorize or permit any of the Group Companies or its or their Affiliates or any of its or their Representatives to, directly or indirectly, (i) encourage, solicit, initiate, facilitate or continue inquiries regarding an Acquisition Proposal, (ii) enter into discussions or negotiations with, or provide any information to, any Person concerning a possible Acquisition Proposal or (iii) enter into any agreements or other instruments (whether or not binding) regarding an Acquisition Proposal.

As promptly as reasonably practicable, and in any event within twenty-four (24) hours following the expiration of the Go-Shop Period, Parent shall deliver to Buyers a written notice setting forth the identity of each Excluded Party and the material terms and conditions of the pending Acquisition Proposal made by each such Excluded Party. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 4.2 to the contrary, any Excluded Party shall cease to be an Excluded Party for all purposes under this Agreement immediately at such time as the Acquisition Proposal made by such party is withdrawn, is terminated or expires by its terms, and after such time Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause to be returned or destroyed all confidential information of Parent concerning it and the Group Companies provided or made available to such former Excluded Party on behalf of Parent.

20

(c)If, at any time prior to obtaining the Requisite Shareholder Approval, Parent receives an Acquisition Proposal which the board of directors of Parent (the "Parent Board") determines in its good faith business judgement constitutes a Superior Proposal, the Parent Board may effect a change of recommendation and/or cause Parent to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 6.01(f) in order to enter into a definitive agreement with respect to such Superior Proposal; provided that Parent shall have given Buyers at least five (5) days (the "Notice Period") prior written notice of Parent's intention to effect a change of recommendation or terminate this Agreement in response to such Superior Proposal, which notice shall include a description of the terms and conditions of the Superior Proposal, the identity of the Person making the Superior Proposal and a copy of any proposed definitive agreement(s) relating to such Superior Proposal, including any related financing commitments.

(d)During the Notice Period, Parent shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, negotiate with Buyers in good faith (to the extent Buyers desire to negotiate) to make such adjustments in the terms and conditions of this Agreement, so that the Acquisition Proposal ceases to constitute a Superior Proposal (it being understood and agreed that any amendment to the financial terms or other material term of such Superior Proposal shall require Parent to deliver a new written notice to Buyers and comply with the requirements of this Section 4.2(d) with respect to such new written notice). For purposes hereof, "Superior Proposal" means any bona fide written Acquisition Proposal not obtained in violation of this Section 4.2 that the Parent Board determines in its good faith business judgment, after taking into account such financial, legal, regulatory and other aspects of the Acquisition Proposal (including the Person making the Acquisition Proposal) as the Parent Board deems necessary or advisable, (i) is on terms more favorable to the shareholders of Parent than the Transactions, (ii) is reasonably likely to be completed on a timely basis and does not contain conditions related to completion of due diligence or obtaining financing, and (iii) the financing of which is fully committed.

4.3Proxy Statement.

(a)Parent shall prepare and file with the SEC, as promptly as reasonably practicable after the date of this Agreement (and will use reasonable best efforts to do so no later than thirty (30) days after the date of this Agreement), a preliminary Proxy Statement. Parent shall ensure that the Proxy Statement complies in all material respects with the applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder and satisfies all rules of NASDAQ. Parent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to have the Proxy Statement cleared by the SEC as promptly as practicable after the filing thereof. Parent and Buyers shall, or shall cause their respective Affiliates to, prepare and file with the SEC all other documents required by the Exchange Act in connection with the Transactions, and Buyers and Parent shall cooperate with each other in connection with the preparation of the Proxy Statement and any such other filings.

21

(b)Subject to applicable Law, and notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, prior to the filing of the preliminary Proxy Statement (or any amendment or supplement thereto), or any dissemination thereof to the shareholders of Parent, or responding to any comments from the SEC with respect thereto, Parent shall provide Buyer and its counsel with a reasonable opportunity to review and to comment on such document or response, which Parent shall consider in good faith. Buyers shall furnish to Parent the information relating to it required by the Exchange Act to be set forth in the Proxy Statement. Parent shall promptly notify Buyers upon the receipt of any comments from the SEC or its staff or any request from the SEC or its staff for amendments or supplements to the Proxy Statement and shall provide Buyers with copies of (i) all material correspondence between it and its Representatives, on the one hand, and the SEC and its staff, on the other hand, relating to the Proxy Statement and (ii) all written comments with respect to the Proxy Statement received from the SEC. Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to resolve all SEC comments with respect to the Proxy Statement as promptly as practicable after receipt thereof, and Buyers shall cooperate to provide responses to such SEC comments. Parent shall cause the Proxy Statement to be mailed to Parent's shareholders as promptly as practicable after the earlier of (1) receiving notification that the SEC or its staff is not reviewing the Proxy Statement or (2) the conclusion of any SEC or staff review of the Proxy Statement.

(c)If at any time prior to the Shareholders Meeting, any information relating to Parent or Buyers, or any of their respective Affiliates, is discovered by a Party, which information should be set forth in an amendment or supplement to the Proxy Statement, the Party that discovers such information shall promptly notify the other Party, and Parent shall prepare (with the assistance of Buyers) and mail to its shareholders such an amendment or supplement, in each case, to the extent required by applicable Law. Parent and Buyers each agrees to promptly (i) correct any information provided by it specifically for use in the Proxy Statement if and to the extent that such information shall have become false or misleading in any material respect and (ii) supplement the information provided by it specifically for use in the Proxy Statement to include any information that shall become necessary in order to make the statements in the Proxy Statement, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. Parent further agrees to cause the Proxy Statement as so corrected or supplemented promptly to be filed with the SEC and to be disseminated to its shareholders of record as of the record date established for the Shareholders Meeting, in each case, as and to the extent required by applicable Law.

4.4Shareholders Meeting. Parent, acting through the Parent Board (or a committee thereof), shall, as promptly as practicable following confirmation by the SEC that the SEC has no further comments on the Proxy Statement or that Parent may commence mailing the Proxy Statement, take all action required under the applicable Law and Parent's Organizational Documents and the applicable requirements of NASDAQ necessary to promptly and duly call, give notice of, convene and hold as promptly as practicable a meeting of its shareholders for the purpose of obtaining the Requisite Shareholder Approval (the "Shareholders Meeting"); provided, that Parent may postpone or adjourn such meeting solely (a) to the extent required by applicable Law, (b) with the written consent of Buyers (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), (c) to allow reasonable additional time to solicit additional proxies to the extent Parent reasonably believes necessary in order to obtain the Requisite Shareholder Approval or (d) in the absence of a quorum. Parent's receipt of an Acquisition Proposal or a change of recommendation will not alter the obligation of Parent to submit the adoption of this Agreement and the approval of the Transactions to Parent's shareholders at the Shareholders Meeting, unless this Agreement has been terminated in accordance with its terms prior to the Shareholders Meeting. Subject to Section 4.2, and notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Parent Board shall recommend that Parent's shareholders approve the Transactions (the "Parent Board Recommendation"), and Parent shall, unless there has been a Change of Parent Board Recommendation, use its reasonable best efforts to solicit from its shareholders proxies in favor of the approval of the Transactions and obtain the Requisite Shareholder Approval.

(d)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Parties acknowledge and agree that no third-party customer consents shall be required by the Buyers for the consummation of the Asset Contribution to Lumata UK, and the absence of any such third-party customer consents shall not be deemed to be a failure of any condition precedent to the consummation of the Transactions, and Buyers' counsel shall be responsible for the drafting of all documents related to the Asset contribution to Lumata UK.

(a)by mutual written consent of the Parties;

(b)by either Party if:

(i)the Closing has not occurred on or before the date that is ninety (90) days after the date hereof (the "Outside Date"); provided, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 6.1(b)(i) shall not be available to a Party if the failure of the Closing to occur on or before such date was primarily caused by a material breach by such Party of any representation, warranty, covenant, or other agreement of such Party set forth in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document;

(ii) any court of competent jurisdiction or other Governmental Entity shall have issued an Order prohibiting the Transactions and such Order shall have become final and nonappealable; or

(c)by Buyers if (i) any of the representations and warranties of Sellers contained in this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents fail to be correct and complete such that the condition set forth in Section 5.1(a) would not be satisfied or (ii) Sellers have breached or failed to comply with any of their covenants or obligations under this Agreement such that the condition set forth in Section 5.1(b) would not be satisfied and such failure or breach with respect to any such representation, warranty, covenant or obligation cannot be cured or has not been cured within thirty (30) days after the giving of written notice to Sellers of such failure or breach;

(d)by Sellers if:

(i)(1) any of the representations and warranties of Buyers contained in this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents fail to be correct and complete such that the condition set forth in Section 5.2(a) would not be satisfied or (2) Buyers have breached or failed to comply with any of its covenants or obligations under this Agreement such that the condition set forth in Section 5.2(b) would not be satisfied and such failure or breach with respect to any such representation, warranty, covenant or obligation cannot be cured or has not been cured within thirty (30) days after the giving of written notice to Buyers of such failure or breach (provided that the failure of Buyer to pay the Purchase Price or the Software Purchase Price at the Closing shall not be subject to a thirty (30) day cure period); or

(ii) at any time prior to the time the Requisite Shareholder Approval is obtained, Parent has received a Superior Proposal after the date of this Agreement; provided, that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(ii) shall not be available unless Sellers have complied in all material respects with the terms of Section 4.2 with respect to such Superior Proposal.

6.2Effect of Termination. In the event this Agreement is terminated, it shall forthwith become void, and there shall be no further obligation on the part of either Party, except that in the case of any such termination, the provisions of this Article 6, Section 4.9 (Public Announcements; Confidentiality) and Article 8 (Miscellaneous), as well as any defined terms used in such Sections, shall survive, provided that, subject to the other terms hereof, neither Party shall be relieved of any liability under this Agreement for Fraud or any intentional and material breach of any covenant, representation, warranty or agreement set forth in this Agreement. The Parties agree that Buyer's failure to close the transactions contemplated herein on the Closing Date in circumstances in which all of the closing conditions in Sections 5.1 and 5.3 have been satisfied or waived shall be deemed to be an intentional and material breach by Buyer, and that Seller shall retain all rights to bring legal or equitable claims against Buyer as a result of Buyer's failure to close the transactions contemplated herein on the Closing Date in circumstances in which all of the closing conditions in Sections 5.1 and 5.3 have been satisfied or waived.

32

7.3Indemnification Limits and Qualifications.

(a)With respect to the Buyer Indemnified Parties' claims for Losses pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(i) other than for claims with respect to Fraud or breaches of Fundamental representations and breaches of Sections 2.10 and 2.12:

(i)the Buyer Indemnified Parties shall not be entitled to indemnification for any individual or series of related Losses arising from substantially the same facts and circumstances that do not exceed Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) in the aggregate (the "Threshold Amount") (which Losses shall not be counted toward the Basket); and

(ii)the aggregate amount of all Losses for which the Buyer Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to indemnification by Sellers pursuant to this Article 7shall not exceed the funds in the Escrow Account.

(b)With respect to the Buyer Indemnified Parties' claims for Losses pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(i) arising from breaches of Fundamental Representations or breaches of Sections 2.10 and 2.12, the aggregate amount of all Losses for which the Buyer Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to indemnification by Sellers pursuant to this Article 7shall not exceed the Combined Purchase Price.

(c)With respect to the Seller Indemnified Parties' claims for Losses pursuant to Section 7.2(b)(i) other than for claims with respect to Fraud, the Seller Indemnified Parties shall not be entitled to indemnification for any individual or series of related Losses that do not exceed the Threshold Amount.

(d)No Losses may be claimed under Section 7.2(a) by any Buyer Indemnified Party to the extent (i) such Losses are reflected in the calculation of the Purchase Price pursuant to Section 1.3 or (ii) such Losses exceed, in any event, an amount equal to the Combined Purchase Price, except in the case of Fraud.

(e)Notwithstanding any other terms in this Article 7, Losses shall not include any consequential, indirect, special, or punitive damages. Any Losses for which the Buyer Indemnified Parties are entitled to indemnification shall be determined without duplication of recovery by reason of the state of facts giving rise to such Losses constituting a breach or more than one representation, warranty or covenant or obligation.

(f)The amounts for which the Parties shall be liable under this Article 7shall be net of any amounts actually recovered by the Indemnified Party under insurance policies or otherwise with respect to such Losses (net of any Tax or expenses incurred in connection with such recovery). Each Party shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to recover under insurance policies for any Losses prior to seeking indemnification under this Agreement or the Software Purchase Agreements.

(g)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in determining whether there has been any Seller Warranty Breach or Buyer Warranty Breach, or calculating the amount of Losses arising from any Seller Warranty Breach or Buyer Warranty Breach, the applicable representation or warranty shall be read without regard to any qualification or exception contained therein relating to materiality or any similar qualification or standard.

33

(h)Each Indemnified Party shall take, and cause its Affiliates to take, all commercially reasonable steps to mitigate any Loss upon becoming aware of any event or circumstance that would be reasonably expected to, or does, give rise to a claim for indemnification under this Article 7.

7.4Order of Recovery . The sole source of indemnification of any Buyer Indemnified Party's claims for any Losses pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(i) shall be as follows: (A) first, Losses related to such claims shall only be indemnifiable to the extent the aggregate Losses of the Buyer Indemnified Parties for all claims pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(i) exceeding the Threshold Amount exceed $100,000 (the "Basket Amount"); (B) second, to the extent that aggregate Losses of the Buyer Indemnified Parties exceed the Basket Amount, then the Buyer Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to recover for all such Losses (including the Basket Amount) from the Escrow Account, but solely to the extent of the funds then remaining in such account and (C) third, solely to the extent that a claim for indemnification is based on Fraud or is made with respect to alleged breaches of Fundamental Representations and breaches of Sections 2.10 and 2.12, from the Parent. Solely to the extent Losses arise from the matters for which indemnification is provided pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(ii), (a)(iii), (a)(iv), and (a)(v), the Buyer Indemnified Parties shall be permitted to seek recovery of such Losses at their election from any combination of the following: (1) the Escrow Account and (2) Parent. For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall such recovery against Sellers exceed the limitations set forth in Section 7.3(d)(ii), except in the case of Fraud.

7.5Claims Not Involving Third Parties. The Buyer Indemnified Parties or the Seller Indemnified Parties shall assert a claim for indemnification under Section 7.2 against Sellers or Buyers (as the case may be) for any matter not involving a third party by giving notice to Sellers or Buyers (as the case may be) that describes the claim in reasonable detail, includes all reasonably available documents or other information relating to such claim and indicates the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Losses that have been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party (such notice, a "Notice of Claim"). The Indemnifying Party shall respond to the Indemnified Party within thirty (30) Business Days following the date that the Notice of Claim is delivered to pursuant to this Section 7.5 (the "Response Period"), specifying whether or not the Indemnifying Party disputes the claim(s) described in the Notice of Claim, describe in reasonable detail the basis for each such dispute and include reasonable supporting materials (a "Claim Response"). If the Indemnifying Party fails to give a Claim Response within the Response Period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed not to dispute the claim(s) described in the related Notice of Claim. If the Indemnifying Party gives a Claim Response within the Response Period but does not in such Claim Response dispute all of the claim(s) made in the related Notice of Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed not to dispute the undisputed claim(s) described in the related Notice of Claim. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to dispute any claim described in a Notice of Claim, whether by failing to give a timely Claim Response or otherwise, then, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 7.3, the amount of Losses alleged in such Notice of Claim shall be conclusively deemed to be an obligation of the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall be paid the amount specified in the Notice of Claim as provided in the Escrow Agreement or directly by the Indemnifying Party, as applicable. If the Indemnifying Party delivers a Claim Response within the Response Period indicating that the Indemnifying Party disputes one or more of the matters identified in the Notice of Claim, Buyer and Parent shall promptly meet in good faith to resolve the dispute. If Buyer and Parent do not resolve a dispute regarding a claim within thirty (30) days after the delivery of the Claim Response, either the Indemnifying Party or the Indemnified Party may submit the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for resolution. Upon resolution of such dispute, whether by agreement or by a court of competent jurisdiction, if it is determined that any indemnification payment is required pursuant to this Article 7 such amount shall be paid to the Indemnified Party as provided in the Escrow Agreement or directly by the Indemnifying Party, as applicable.

34

7.6Third Party Claims.

(a)If any Buyer Indemnified Party or Seller Indemnified Party (any such being an "Indemnified Party") desires to make a claim for indemnification under Section 7.2 arising from a claim by a third party, such Indemnified Party shall notify Buyer (in the case of a claim by any Seller Indemnified Party) or Parent (in the case of a claim by any Buyer Indemnified Party (in either case, the "Defending Party")) of the claim (the "Indemnified Party Claim") in writing promptly, but in no event more than ten (10) days after receiving notice of any third party Proceeding, describing in reasonable detail the Indemnified Party Claim, including copies of all complaints, summons, petitions, demand letters and all reasonably available documents or other information relating to such claim and indicating the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Losses that have been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party (the "Indemnified Party Claim Notice"); provided, that the failure to so notify shall not relieve the Defending Party of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent that the Defending Party is actually prejudiced thereby. Buyers (in the case of a claim by a Seller Indemnified Party) or Sellers (in the case of a claim by a Buyer Indemnified Party), shall have the right to assume the control of the defense of any such third party claims solely for money damages subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 7.6(a), including, at its own expense, employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party (the "Defending Party Notice"). The Indemnifying Party shall not be entitled to assume or maintain control of the defense of any Indemnified Party Claim if (i) the Indemnified Party Claim relates to or arises in connection with any criminal proceeding, action, indictment, allegation or investigation or other proceeding, action or investigation by a Governmental Entity, (ii) the Third Party Claim seeks injunctive or other equitable relief against the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates, (iii) the Indemnified Party Claim is for a matter for which recovery is limited to the Escrow Amount, and the claim is for an amount that is more than twice the amount remaining in the Escrow Account or (iv) the Indemnifying Party has failed or is failing to prosecute or defend vigorously the Indemnified Party Claim.

(b)If the Defending Party shall have exercised its right to assume such control, the Indemnified Party may, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, employ counsel to represent it (in addition to counsel employed by the Defending Party) in any such matter, and in such event counsel selected by the Defending Party shall cooperate with such counsel of the Indemnified Party in such defense, compromise or settlement; provided that the Indemnifying Party shall pay the fees and expenses of such separate counsel if the Indemnified Party shall reasonably conclude that (i) there is a material conflict of interest between the Defending Party or any of its Affiliates and the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates in the conduct of the defense of such Indemnified Party Claim or (ii) there are specific defenses or claims available to the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates which are different from or additional to those available to the Defending Party or any of its Affiliates and which could be materially adverse to the Defending Party or any of its Affiliates.

35

(c)In the event that the Defending Party delivers a Defending Party Notice, the Defending Party will have the right to conduct such defense at its own cost; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party shall not settle or compromise any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), unless such settlement includes a full release of the Indemnifying Party from such Third Party Claim. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of a Third-Party Claim and is in good faith contesting such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to any settlement, compromise or discharge of a Third-Party Claim that the Indemnifying Party may reasonably recommend and that by its terms (i) obligates the Indemnifying Party to pay the full amount of Losses in connection with such Third-Party Claim, other than with respect to any Losses (or portion thereof) that are not required to be paid as a result of the limitations set forth in this Section 7 and (ii) releases the Indemnified Party in connection with such Third-Party Claim. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, that the Defending Party shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement or compromise with respect to such Indemnified Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party if:

(i)such judgment, settlement or compromise does not include, as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by each claimant or plaintiff to each Indemnified Party and its Affiliates of a release from all liability with respect to such claim;

(ii)such judgment, settlement or compromise requires the admission by the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates of any fault, liability or wrong doing on its part;

(iii)as a result of such judgment, the sole relief provided is not monetary damages that are paid in full by the Defending Party; or

(iv)as a result of such judgment, settlement or compromise, injunctive or other equitable relief would be imposed against the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates.

(d)In the event that the Defending Party fails to give the Defending Party Notice within thirty (30) days after receiving notice of the Indemnified Party Claim pursuant to Section 7.6(a), the Defending Party will be deemed to have elected not to conduct the defense of the subject third party claim, and in such event the Indemnified Party will have the right to conduct such defense at the Defending Party's expense and to compromise and settle such claim without the consent of the Defending Party. The Indemnified Party shall have the right to compromise and settle the third party claim only with the prior written consent of the Defending Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

(e)The Indemnified Party will cooperate with and make available to the Defending Party such assistance, documents and other materials as the Defending Party may reasonably request, and the Indemnified Party shall have the right at its expense (except as provided in Section 7.6(b)) to participate in the defense assisted by counsel of its own choosing.

36

(f)Notwithstanding who is controlling the defense or settlement of any third party claim, and without regard to who might be ultimately responsible for the liability related thereto, such party controlling the defense or settlement shall diligently and vigorously defend such claim (subject to such party's right to settle such Indemnified Party Claim in accordance with the terms of this Section 7.6) and keep the other party reasonably apprised of the status of such claim.

7.7Exclusive Remedy. Other than (a) with respect to Fraud or (b) an injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief pursuant to Section 8.12, following the Closing, the indemnification rights in this Article 7 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Parties with respect to any claims, damages or liabilities arising from this Agreement, the Software Purchase Agreements or otherwise in respect of the transactions contemplated herein. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, nothing in this Agreement shall limit any Party's rights or remedies in the case of Fraud.

7.8Adjustment to Purchase Price. The Parties agree that any indemnification payment shall be treated as an adjustment to the Purchase Price unless otherwise required by applicable Law.

7.9Release of Indemnity Escrow Amount.

(a)On the first Business Day following the date that is twelve (12) months following the Closing Date, Sellers and Buyers shall cause the Escrow Agent to release to Parent any remaining portion of the Escrow Amount held in the Escrow Account (including any accrued interest and less applicable withholding), less an aggregate amount equal to the total of all claims for indemnification of the Buyer Indemnified Parties that are properly asserted and pending pursuant to this Article 7on or prior to such anniversary. Any distribution pursuant to this Section 7.9(a) shall be made in accordance with this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement.

(b)In any event, promptly upon the resolution of a pending claim for indemnification, Sellers and Buyers shall cause the Escrow Agent to release to Parent any portion of the Escrow Amount (including any accrued interest and less applicable withholding) retained in respect of such pending claim for indemnification remaining after the resolution of such pending claim. Any distribution pursuant to this Section 7.9(b) shall be made in accordance with this Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and, if necessary, the payment instructions provided by Sellers or Buyers, as applicable.

ARTICLE 8

Excluding any open source code that is not owned by Seller, Software shall also include, without limitation:

1

a) all computer programs, firmware, platform and application software (whether in source code, object code or other form), library functions, compilers, models, algorithms, methodologies and implementations thereof, data, metadata, and databases and compilations of data, whether machine readable or otherwise, that are included or related with the Software, in any form, including without limitation, development tools, descriptions and flow charts, programmers' annotations, notes, documentation, product user manuals, training materials and other work product used to design, plan, organize, maintain, support or develop any of the foregoing, irrespective of the media on which it is recorded, library functions, compilers, and platform and application software, whether in source or object code format, and all related documentation;
b) as pertains to the Software, all trade secrets, confidential business information, know-how, ideas, research and development, formulas, compositions, development and production processes and techniques, technical data, designs, drawings, specifications, material that is subject to non-copyright protections, proprietary information, know-how, technology, technical data, intellectual property rights acquired by license or agreement;

Section 1.03 Allocation of Purchase Price.

Section 1.05 Third Party Consents. To the extent that Seller's rights under any Purchased Asset may not be assigned to Buyer without the consent of another Person, Seller, at its expense, shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any such required consent(s) as promptly as possible. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the foregoing sentence and any other provision in this Agreement to the contrary, Seller (i) shall have no obligation to transfer any open source code that is not transferrable and (ii) shall have no liability or other obligation to Buyer to the extent that any Purchased Asset cannot be assigned due to illegality or impossibility of transfer based on the laws or rules of any jurisdiction. If any such consent shall not be obtained or if any attempted assignment would be ineffective or would impair Buyer's rights under the Purchased Asset in question so that Buyer would not in effect acquire the benefit of all such rights, Seller, to the maximum extent permitted by law and the Purchased Asset, shall act after the Closing as Buyer's agent in order to obtain for it the benefits thereunder and shall cooperate, to the maximum extent permitted by law and the Purchased Asset, with Buyer in any other reasonable arrangement designed to provide such benefits to Buyer.

Exhibit 99.1

EVOLVING SYSTEMS ENTERS DEFINITIVE AGREEMENTS TO SELL ACTIVATION AND MARKETING BUSINESSES TO PARTNERONE CAPITAL FOR $40 MILLION

Proposed Transaction Expected to Result in Debt Free Balance Sheet with approximately $37.5 Million Cash at Closing

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado October 18, 2021 - On October 15, 2021, Evolving Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVOL) entered into definitive agreements to sell all of the assets of its Customer Acquisition and Network Services division ('Activation') as well as its CVML and Loyalty Business ('Marketing') to PartnerOne Capital for a base purchase price of $40 million. The proposed transaction, which has been approved by the Board of Directors of both companies, is subject to various terms and conditions, including approval by Evolving Systems' stockholders. Evolving Systems expects to file a preliminary proxy statement regarding the proposed transaction with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission within 30 days.

At the closing, Evolving Systems expects to receive $37.5 million of the base purchase price in cash (subject to adjustment for net cash), with the remaining $2.5 million placed in escrow as security for Evolving Systems' indemnification obligations. The escrowed funds will be released to Evolving Systems on the first business day following the one-year anniversary of the closing, less any portion used to make indemnification payments to PartnerOne.

"PartnerOne is very excited to take Evolving Systems to the next level, by continuing to serve its customers with the industry's leading software and best-in-class customer service. We look forward to building a strong team and a positive work environment with the incredible people that make Evolving Systems the global leader in its category today." said Riz Khaliq from PartnerOne.

"At closing, we anticipate that Evolving Systems will have a debt free balance sheet with approximately $37.5 million in cash and cash equivalents" said Matthew Stecker, President & CEO of Evolving Systems. "The Board of Directors has established an investment committee to evaluate options to maximize the value of the Company's assets, including, but not limited to, identifying potential opportunities to invest in or acquire one or more operating businesses that provide opportunities for appreciation in value and/or returning cash to shareholders."

Evolving Systems' largest stockholder and holder of approximately 20.8% of Evolving Systems' issued and outstanding common stock has entered into a voting agreement to vote in favor of the proposed transaction, subject to certain terms and conditions contained therein.

The proposed transaction includes a "go-shop" period expiring on November 15, 2021. During this period, Evolving Systems, assisted by its legal and financial advisors, will actively initiate, solicit and consider alternative acquisition proposals from third parties. The Evolving Systems board will have the right to terminate the proposed transaction with PartnerOne, and enter into a superior transaction, subject to the terms and conditions contained in the purchase agreements executed by Evolving Systems and PartnerOne. There can be no assurance that this "go-shop" process will result in a superior proposal, and Evolving Systems does not intend to disclose developments with respect to the "go-shop" process unless and until it determines that such disclosure is appropriate or otherwise required.
