WOBURN, Mass. -- November 18, 2013

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading provider of
typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer
devices, has been named as one of Massachusetts’ best employers by The Boston
Globe in its “Top Places to Work” magazine.

“We’re honored to receive this recognition, as it’s the employees who have
made this a reality. We’re fortunate to have such a highly dedicated group of
individuals represent Monotype,” said Doug Shaw, president and chief executive
officer of Monotype. “Our employees work hard but are also caring and fun to
be around. As an employer, we strive to maintain a working environment that
values honesty and transparency, while surpassing our customers’
expectations.”

The survey, conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics, measured more
than 76,000 individuals’ responses to statements regarding six key factors
related to employee happiness, including company direction, execution,
employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and
benefits. Least important were pay, benefits and work-life balance, with
survey subjects placing much higher importance on employee appreciation,
confidence and feeling that their work is meaningful. WorkplaceDynamics also
found that of all the cities surveyed, employees in Boston were most
enthusiastic about their companies, making Boston the top of the top places to
work.

“As our economy continues to heal, most of the benchmarks for progress are
purely quantitative, such as increased pay rates and expanded benefits
packages,” said Mark Pothier, Boston Globe business editor. “While there is
definite value in these indicators, many signs of recovery cannot be boiled
down to pure economics. The companies on our Top Places to Work list foster
productivity and innovation by investing in the happiness of their employees,
which cannot solely be measured in dollars and cents.”

The “Top Places to Work” magazine includes online extras, such as videos,
sortable rankings and photo galleries. All can be found at
