IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2013

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TigerLogic Corporation, (Nasdaq:
TIGR), today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to divest its
Multidimensional Database Management Systems ("MDMS" or "D3") business to
Rocket Software, Inc. ("Rocket Software") for gross proceeds of approximately
$22 million in cash. The sale is expected to close within the fourth calendar
quarter of 2013, and is subject to satisfaction of customary closing
conditions.

"TigerLogic has evolved rapidly over the last 12 months, and has taken actions
designed to capture the fast-growing demand for cloud platforms enabling
mobile and social solutions. The sale of the MDMS business is a further step
toward our focus on extending the growth and reach of the Postano and Omnis
platforms," said Richard Koe, President and CEO of TigerLogic. "The closing of
this transaction will allow TigerLogic to concentrate on initiatives that
support our vision of enabling brands and companies to integrate curated
mobile and social solutions across multiple digital environments. Moreover,
the divestiture of the MDMS assets will provide additional resources to
support stronger sales growth and further development of our social and mobile
businesses."

"This is a logical next step for our business and a strategic decision that
should enable the D3 business to flourish as well," continued Koe. "TigerLogic
selected Rocket Software because of its knowledge of the MDMS space, and its
deep commitment to support our D3 partners and customers. Rocket Software is
known for its strong operational expertise, particularly in corporate
divestitures that require seamless transfers of significant business
operations, which is an imperative for our D3 partners and customers. To that
end, we also announce today that John Bramley, TigerLogic's Vice President,
Operations, agreed to join Rocket Software, effective upon the closing, as the
business executive responsible for managing the development and evolution of
D3."

"This is a good and not surprising move for TigerLogic, as it allows them to
concentrate their energy and resources on the core, strategic components of
their business in order to drive further innovation and growth," said Scott
Smith, General Partner, Viant Group, Investment Advisor to TigerLogic in this
transaction.
