                                             ALLOCATE SOFTWARE PLC
                                         ("Allocate" or "the Company")
                                                       
                                           Result of General Meeting
                                                       
On  27  November  2009,  Allocate  announced  that it had agreed the  terms  of  a  proposed  acquisition  (the
"Acquisition")  by the Company of Time Care AB ("Time Care"), a Swedish-based provider of workforce  management
software,  with  a  strong  focus  on  the  healthcare market, for a  Net  Consideration  of  SEK  100  million
(approximately £8.7 million)1.
On  the  same day, Allocate also announced a placing of 15,100,000 new ordinary shares ("New Shares")  at  55.0
pence  per New Share to raise approximately £8.3 million (approximately £8.0 million net of expenses)  to  help
fund  the  Acquisition (the "Placing").  The Placing has been fully underwritten by Numis  Securities  Limited,
subject to certain conditions set out in the Placing Agreement.
The Placing and consequently the Acquisition are conditional upon, inter alia, the approval of Shareholders.
The  Board of Allocate is pleased to announce that at the General Meeting of its Shareholders held at 9.30 a.m.
today,  the Resolutions, as set out in the Notice of General Meeting sent to Shareholders on 27 November  2009,
were duly passed without amendment.

The  Placing  and  consequently  the  Acquisition  remain  conditional  upon  the  Placing  Agreement  becoming
unconditional in all respects and Admission.  It is expected that Admission will become effective, and dealings
in the New Shares will commence on AIM, at 8.00 a.m. on 15 December 2009.  The New Shares will, when issued and
fully  paid, rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares, including the right to  receive
any dividend or other distribution declared, made or paid after Admission.
Completion  of  the  Acquisition  is anticipated to occur shortly after Admission.  As  at  the  date  of  this
announcement,  all Vendors had signed the Acquisition Agreement.  Consequently, upon Completion, Allocate  will
have acquired the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Time Care.
Terms  defined  in  the  Circular  sent to Shareholders on 27 November 2009 have  the  same  meanings  in  this
announcement.
