BOSTON -- April 8, 2014

Eze Software Group, a premier provider of global investment technology, today
announced that Pete Sinisgalli has been appointed CEO. Effective May 1st, Mr.
Sinisgalli succeeds Tom Gavin, who had announced to employees and clients late
last year that he would be stepping down for personal reasons after nearly
sixteen years with the company, including nine years in the CEO role. Mr.
Gavin will continue to play an active role with the company, serving on the
board and acting as an ongoing strategic advisor to Eze Software Group.

Mr. Sinisgalli brings a proven record of success to Eze Software Group, having
served in senior leadership positions in both private and public software
companies across multiple industries. Most recently, he was president and CEO
of Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ – MANH) from 2004 through 2012. During his
tenure at Manhattan Associates, the company experienced significant growth and
migrated its supply chain management solutions to a new technology platform.
Prior to Manhattan Associates, Mr. Sinisgalli had been president and CEO at
NewRoads, Inc., president and COO at CheckFree and CFO at Dun & Bradstreet
Software. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Eze Software Group,
Manhattan Associates, and Agilysys.

“I’m excited to join Eze Software Group and look forward to working with an
experienced senior team that has established itself as the best in the
business. The company’s recent accomplishments and continued record of success
are a testament to the talent and hard work of its 800 employees around the
globe,” said Mr. Sinisgalli. “I look forward to leading such a strong
organization, helping it execute against its short- and long-term strategic
vision while accelerating its growth even further in the years ahead.”

“I am extremely proud of what the team has accomplished over the years that I
have been with the company,” said Mr. Gavin. “I am thrilled to know that I can
transition the CEO role to someone with the talent and experience that Pete
Sinisgalli brings to the table. In addition, Pete recognizes and embraces the
long-standing cultural uniqueness of Eze Software Group and shares our belief
in building a business focused on being ‘a partner and not just a vendor.’”

“I know that I speak for the entire senior management team at Eze Software
Group when I say that we are thrilled to have somebody of Pete’s caliber and
background join the Eze Software team,” said Jeff Shoreman, co-president of
Eze Software Group. “Pete brings a wealth of experience that will be extremely
beneficial to us as we continue our rapid growth and significantly increase
our long-term R&D investment.”

This announcement comes on the heels of a record 2013 and very strong first
quarter in which the company continued to see significant global growth for
all product lines. Additionally, last week its Tradar PMS won Best Technology
Reporting Software at the 2014 HFMWeek European Hedge Fund Services Awards.
