Procera Networks Announces the Appointment of Tom Williams as Interim CEO After the Retirement of Doug Glader

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - November 7, 2007) - Procera Networks, Inc. announced today that Mr. Douglas Glader, its chief executive officer and chairman of the board of directors has retired. Mr. Glader has been considering retirement for some time, as the demanding nature of the CEO role has not permitted him to spend sufficient time with his family.

Additionally, the company announced that Thomas H. Williams, its current chief financial officer, has assumed the role of the CEO on an interim basis, and that the board has initiated a search for a permanent CEO.

Mr. Scott McClendon, representing the board of directors said, "Doug Glader was the founder of Procera and has been its CEO since inception. Doug was the architect of Procera's strategy to become a leader in bandwidth management and control and orchestrated a merger with Netintact AB of Sweden in August 2006. At the time of the merger, and to this day, PacketLogic is recognized as the industry leader in solutions for the emerging market of bandwidth management and control. The entire board thanks Doug for his contributions and wishes him success in his future endeavors."

Mr. McClendon continued, "I know that I speak for the board in expressing our strong support for Tom Williams as the Company's interim CEO. Tom joined the board of directors in 2003 and became the Company CFO in March 2006. Mr. Williams has repeatedly shown strong leadership and a broad knowledge of both financial and operational challenges faced by emerging technology companies."

Mr. Williams said, "I believe the opportunities for the Company in the coming quarters are compelling and that the Company has the product family and roadmap to become a major factor in its market. I look forward to the challenge. My objective is to create exceptional shareholder value."
