YOKOHAMA, Japan -- October 28, 2013

Macnica, Inc. (TOKYO:7631), a leading technical distributor of electronics and
network related products, announced today that Macnica together with its
global subsidiaries has launched a new family of Mpression technical solutions
to help their electronics design customers worldwide. Macnica is gathering the
technical expertise and solutions developed by Macnica Group companies
worldwide under this new “Mpression”* brand.

While electronic designs are becoming more complex, engineers are required to
design products on ever shortening schedules and at lower costs, without
compromising performance or quality. Moreover, the amount of resources
available for a project (people, money and time) is often diminished in
today’s harsh global economic conditions.

With these changes in the design environment, there is increasing demand for
systems level solutions including the use of ICs, PCB design, system
integration and software. Macnica Group believes it is in a unique position to
offer special design services and IP developed from the system designer’s
standpoint and has been delivering these solutions through a special
technology group that is separate from the regular sales and support
organizations. Macnica is now taking another step ahead to form the Mpression
brand to integrate the technical knowledge and solutions built by local
Macnica Group companies. These solutions are then offered globally to
reinforce the group’s technical value proposition to all of its customers.

The solutions developed by Macnica Group companies include various evaluation
board platforms for new IC products, hardware IP building blocks for
applications and functions needed to build innovative product. Also offered
are demos and reference designs integrating the IP blocks on our platforms to
make proof-of-concept close to the customer’s working environment for their
target applications or to show the value of combining multiple solutions
available from the Macnica Group. These solutions are now branded as Mpression
solutions and will be offered not only by the companies who developed them,
but also other Macnica group companies in Japan, China, Asia Pacific
countries, North America and Europe.

“Mpression” is filed for trademark registration in Japan, US and other
countries worldwide
