License Revenue Achieves New Level of Growth Driven by Advanced Application Scheduling and Performance Products

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 26, 2006 -- In its third consecutive year of accelerating growth, Tidal Software, a leading provider of application scheduling and performance management software products, today announced a new quarterly revenue record for its fiscal second quarter ending December 31, 2005. The company attributes the record results to strong customer response to important new product advancements.

The second quarter exceeded expected results with quarterly bookings growing 54% year-over-year for the second quarter and continuing sequential growth over a strong Q1.

Results for profitability and cash flow were up, in line with company expectations.

In the second quarter, new customers including Accenture, Genzyme, Lockheed Martin Missiles, Lucent Technologies, and RSA together with existing customers including General Mills and Microsoft invested in Tidal Software products for their application scheduling and performance solutions. Accenture, General Mills, and others selected Tidal for new capabilities in application scheduling and performance. Announced earlier in the quarter, Tidal continues to add to the unique Expert-in-a-Box™ technology, extending application performance analysis to reach into Java and databases to pinpoint application problems. Tidal also introduced linkages between application scheduling and performance for on-demand performance analysis and optimization of applications. Customers also continued to consistently cite ease-of-use and clear vision as reasons for choosing Tidal Software.

"Our performance this quarter along with our roster of sterling customers clearly indicates demand for the enormous power introduced by our combined application scheduling and performance management products and its ability to simplify the operation of enterprise applications in the data center," said Flint Brenton, CEO and President, Tidal Software. "Our excellent performance caps a strong first half and positions us well for the second half of fiscal 2006, during which we will continue to invest in our channels to market and accelerate the development of our technologies. We will continue to enrich our products by strengthening the ties between scheduling and performance and extending the reach of our performance expert products into Java, web, and database technologies supporting today's enterprise applications."
