Provisional consolidated  sales totaled  €10.43 M  for the  2012 fiscal  year, 
compared to €8.22 M over the 2011 figures, for +27% growth. At €3.19 M,  sales 
for the fourth quarter of 2012 were up 36% in comparison with Q4 2011.

During the fourth quarter, in the  United States, the Group notably signed  an 
SaaS agreement with one of the global leaders in optics and ophthalmology, and
another with  the world's  leading education  group. These  two new  contracts 
strengthen Cameleon Software's positioning with its major accounts. They  also 
reflect its aggressive expansion in America, ensuring that the company has  an 
established base from which  to roll out major  deployments in the future  and 
providing the large scale visibility needed  to win new accounts. Business  in 
the region grew by +39% over the year.

Cameleon  Software  also  made  several  substantial  sales  to  key  European 
companies offering health and other types of insurance. MMA, for example,  the 
3rd-largest insurance company  with a  network of  agents in  France, will  be 
installing the Cameleon  solution for  all its sales  materials and  channels. 
Cameleon has thus become the natural CPQ leader in these markets. In addition,
the  company  further  strengthened  its  established  base  in  industry  and 
technology in 2012.

Its dynamic software  sales also contribute  to the strong  growth in  revenue 
from services,  namely  the expert  services  provided to  clients  installing 
Cameleon.

Recurring  revenue  (maintenance  fees  and  SaaS  fees)  represented  40%  of 
consolidated sales in 2012. SaaS revenue  jumped by 270% over the period.  The 
company's order  backlog  (perpetual licenses  and  SaaS fees)  is  expanding, 
rising from €5.90 M on December 31, 2011 to €6.39 M on December 31, 2012.

According to Jacques Soumeillan, President and CEO of Cameleon Software, "This
record year, capped by a particularly robust fourth quarter, demonstrates  how 
relevant the Cameleon Software Group's  strategy is. We are consolidating  our 
position as the  leader in  the major  accounts market  and as  the leader  in 
technology through the constant innovations  added to the Cameleon Suite.  For 
2013, we foresee an  accelerated transition toward the  SaaS model in  Europe, 
which should  lead  to stabilized  sales  in the  region  while  significantly 
boosting our order backlog and recurring sales. Meanwhile, we expect sales  in 
the United States to remain  very dynamic and to  drive the Group's growth  in 
2013."
