Absolute Software Completes LiveTime Software Acquisition

Acquisition expands Absolute's Asset Management capability and enters into the 
IT Service Support Management market 
VANCOUVER, Nov. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Absolute® Software Corporation ("Absolute" 
or the "Company") (TSX: ABT), the leading provider of firmware-embedded, 
persistent endpoint security and management solutions is pleased to announce 
that it has successfully completed the acquisition of the assets of 
privately-held LiveTime Software, a SaaS and on-premise help desk and IT 
Service Support Management (ITSSM) provider. 
"We are pleased to complete the acquisition of LiveTime Software," said John 
Livingston, Chairman and CEO at Absolute Software. "LiveTime solutions will 
strongly complement our persistent endpoint security and management solutions. 
By leveraging our existing sales channels and current customer base, we are 
well positioned to become a major player in the help desk and ITSSM market." 
"We are excited to be part of the Absolute team and have a clear vision 
forward with the integration of Absolute's best of breed solutions," said 
Darren Williams, VP & GM Service Management at Absolute Software. "Under the 
Absolute umbrella, we can now provide customers with both cloud and on premise 
solutions to automate their IT service management processes, thereby lowering 
their operational costs and improving operating efficiencies." 
As part of the launch of LiveTime Software under the Absolute umbrella, 
LiveTime Service Manager will become Absolute Service and LiveTime Help Desk 
will be renamed Absolute Help. Consistent with all of Absolute's solutions, 
Absolute Service and Absolute Help will be differentiated based on ease of 
use, rapid deployment and multiple device support to provide customers with 
the required functionality without the extensive professional services and 
development work most solutions in the market currently require. More
