He will succeed William E. McCracken, 70, who has served as CA Technologies
chief executive officer since January, 2010 and who is retiring effective
March 31, 2013. McCracken also will leave the CA Technologies Board of
Directors effective January 7, 2013.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead CA Technologies,” Gregoire said.
“I accepted the position because I believe CA Technologies has a compelling
value proposition, a strong reputation and a growing relevance for customers,
software engineering, and partners. It is clear that CA Technologies is
well-positioned to lead the industry as companies find it more critical than
ever to manage and secure their IT environments in the cloud and efficiently
provide business services that enable them to win in the marketplace.”

Most recently, Gregoire was chairman, president and chief executive officer of
Taleo Corp., a cloud-based talent management software company. During his
seven years leading Taleo, Gregoire successfully managed an IPO in 2005 and
grew revenue from $78 million to $324 million. Taleo was acquired early in
2012 by Oracle Corp. for nearly $2 billion.

Before joining Taleo, Gregoire spent four years at PeopleSoft, Inc., a
provider of software solutions for human resource management, financial
management, supply chain, customer relationship management and enterprise
performance management. While there, he was the executive vice president of
PeopleSoft Global Services, leading a team of 4,000 professionals with annual
revenue of $2 billion.

Gregoire also spent 12 years at EDS Corp., where he held a number of senior
positions including executive director of the global Financial Markets Group,
chief technologist for Manufacturing and Financial verticals, as well as
several architecture and project management positions.

“We are very pleased to have hired someone of Mike Gregoire’s caliber,” said
Arthur Weinbach, chairman of the Board of Directors, CA Technologies. “He
clearly stood out in the field of candidates we considered, bringing to CA
Technologies a compelling track record of success, leadership skills,
operating expertise and software industry vision. We expect CA Technologies
employees, customers and partners to benefit from his leadership, years of
experience in the software industry and customer focus.”

Gregoire will relocate to the New York area.

In making the announcement, Weinbach said McCracken will continue to lead the
company until Gregoire joins on January 7, 2013. He will assist Gregoire in
the transition until his retirement on March 31, 2013. The company also said
it has entered into a consulting agreement with McCracken to further help with
the transition through December 31, 2013.

“The Board of Directors and the employees of CA Technologies appreciate Bill
McCracken’s leadership over the past three years and his success in building a
customer-centric company with a forward-looking strategy,” said Weinbach.
“Over his tenure, Bill has repeatedly shown his devotion to the company, our
customers and employees. We want to thank him for all he has done for CA. We
are very grateful.”

Gary Fernandes, the director who led the Board search committee added: “The
Board followed a vigorous search process during the past six months. As the
search progressed, it became clear to us that Mike Gregoire is exactly the
kind of leader CA Technologies needs. Mike has been a winner in everything he
has done in his business and personal lives. He is the ultimate competitor and
has a fierce desire to succeed in everything he does. The Board looks forward
to working with him.”

Gregoire holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physics and computing from
Wilfred Laurier University and a Master of Business Administration degree from
California Coast University. He also serves on the Board of Directors of
ShoreTel, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHOR), a telecommunications company.
