Business Wire

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- February 26, 2013

Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, today
announced total revenue growth for the past seven years exceeded 20 percent
per year, as a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR). Over that same period,
software revenue grew by a CAGR of 31 percent. The year 2012 was the seventh
consecutive year that Apriso grew total revenue.

“Over the past 12 months we have seen a continued focus whereby many of the
world’s leading global manufacturers now recognize the importance of managing
worldwide operations more holistically. This change is in response to a need
for greater agility when dealing with increasingly complex customer demands
and dynamic supply chains. These challenges require a more technologically
sophisticated approach to manufacturing operations management,” said Jim
Henderson, president and CEO of Apriso.

“Increasingly, more of our customers are making an enterprise decision to
address these complexities and challenges by establishing a global
manufacturing strategy to streamline and manage production more effectively,”
continued Henderson.

Customer Activity

Apriso saw this shift across a number of industry segments, including
Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Industrial, Powertrain, Tobacco, Energy,
Consumer Goods, Food and High Tech. This new activity validates the diversity
of industries that now need to move towards globally networked manufacturing
operations.

Over the past five years, Apriso has signed 55 new global manufacturing
customers, and went live at 181 new sites. Benefits of implementing a global
platform for manufacturing operations management include better continuous
process (and knowledge) improvement, greater process consistency to leverage
best practices on a global scale, reduced costs, and improved quality and
agility.

New Product Announcements

In 2012, Apriso launched a second version of FlexNet Manufacturing Process
Intelligence (MPI) to provide an unprecedented level of real-time visibility
for improved manufacturing and supply chain performance. MPI was a successful
new product launch, with five customer implementations in progress by the end
of 2012.

Apriso continued to expand its suite of solution offerings tailored to
specific industries to help companies meet their most demanding manufacturing
challenges. These include global product traceability solutions for the
Automotive and Medical Device Industries, which are now helping leading
manufacturers ensure better track and trace, genealogy and data
standardization while meeting specific global supply chain and production
challenges.

In addition, Apriso announced general availability of Apriso for
Manufacturing, the first Windows 8 application designed specifically for
manufacturers. Apriso's Manufacturing Process Intelligence solution is an
ideal complement to Microsoft’s Business Intelligence solutions, providing
real-time visibility to manufacturing operations performance to accelerate
responsiveness to change while supporting global continuous improvement.
