LONDON -- February 27, 2014

Box today announced that Royal HaskoningDHV, a global player in engineering,
construction and project management, has chosen Box to power secure content
sharing and collaboration across its organization of 7,000 professionals and
with clients. With the challenge of managing 10-to-20-year long projects among
multiple business partners and governments in over 48 countries, Royal
HaskoningDHV turned to Box's cloud-based platform to get the flexibility it
needed to maintain speed, productivity and a competitive edge that its
previous on-premise solutions couldn't provide.

“Box has gone way beyond where we thought it would. It has opened up
collaboration possibilities and business opportunities that we were not
anticipating, giving us a competitive edge," said Roland Daane, corporate
information manager at Royal HaskoningDHV. "We're confident that Box’s
enterprise capabilities fill the needs of every one of our employees and
clients from a security, regulatory and content accessibility standpoint."

Initially, Royal HaskoningDHV worked with on-premise servers in individual
offices, but when the business expanded and globalized, it was clear that this
siloed approach wasn’t going to serve their needs. By leveraging Box, Royal
HaskoningDHV will be able to continue building a productive global team and
remain competitive through Box's enterprise-grade features, including
permissions controls and security and collaborative features, such as comments
and versioning.

Box provides simple and secure access to information from anywhere and on any
device. Users can share information securely with both internal and external
collaborators, making it a strong solution for businesses working with various
clients, partners and contacts.

"The cloud has dramatically democratised technology, giving businesses of all
sizes a powerful source of competitive advantage,” said David Quantrell,
senior vice president of EMEA, Box. “In today’s mobile world, companies are
moving away from legacy technologies and toward adopting enterprise-grade
cloud solutions that provide the level of security they need to protect their
content, the controls to adopt BYOD policies and the simplicity that users
gravitate towards."

Box’s mission is to make businesses more productive, competitive, and powerful
by connecting people and their most important information. Worldwide, more
than 20M users at 200,000 businesses use Box, including National Rail, Procter
& Gamble, Rosetta Stone, Schneider Electric, and Toyota. Since first opening a
London office in June 2012, Box has more than doubled customer growth outside
of the US and continues to expand throughout Europe. In addition to growing
its existing offices in London, Munich and Paris, Box has recently added
employees in the UK and in select countries to address growing demand for
partnerships and sales in Eastern Europe, Middle East, the Nordics, Benelux,
Spain and Italy.
