activePDF Celebrates 10 Years of Innovation

Server-Side PDF Leader Achieves Major Milestone and Continues Evolution

MISSION VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2010) - A decade ago, activePDF, Inc. pioneered PDF creation, conversion and manipulation on the Microsoft ® Windows server platform, giving developers a simple and cost-effective way to integrate PDF workflow within their server applications. Today, with over 100,000 server licenses deployed worldwide, activePDF is the recognized leader in server-side PDF solutions, continuing to help companies improve the delivery and management of their digital documents, providing leading edge solutions for creating and manipulating PDF files from virtually any Windows-based application.

"activePDF's longevity and growth over the past decade is a true testament to our ability in helping companies maximize their resources, saving time and money through innovative products that address real business needs," said Tim Sullivan, activePDF founder and CEO. "The technology we introduced 10 years ago was so leading edge, it immediately became the standard by which newcomers to the market were measured," commented Sullivan. "Before activePDF's inception, there simply were no toolsets available for server-based PDF development. The market was scattered and software developers had no single place to turn for help. Our comprehensive offering simplified PDF application development, enabling even fledgling Windows web developers to create sophisticated solutions within hours, instead of weeks." Sullivan continued, "Our exceptional subscription renewal and overall corporate adoption rates demonstrate that we've been able to respond to the evolving needs of our clients, and we'll continue to address the challenges they're facing now and for years to come."

More than a million copies of activePDF-developed products have been downloaded to date, and the company currently has more than 20,000 customers on its client roster. activePDF continues to build on its momentum by strengthening its executive team, increasing its product portfolio, and adding new customers in all regions. This growth has been fueled in part by its extensive network of partners and solution providers, along with its industry recognition, including numerous 'Reader's Choice' awards from Visual Studio Magazine and other publications, as well as recurring placement among Software Magazine's annual Software 500 and the Component Source Top 100.

In the coming year, activePDF's customers can expect to see continued innovation in the company's product offerings, with new solutions, as well as updates to existing technologies, scheduled for rollout in Q1. Without divulging specifics, Sullivan remarks, "2010 will see activePDF taking yet another quantum leap forward in the server-based PDF space. Top-end performance, business-centric functionality and enterprise interoperability are key areas of focus this year. With betas of most of our 2010 releases either in-place or rolling out within a few weeks, we are gearing up to pioneer yet another shift in the market, delivering unparalleled value to our clients while establishing a new standard by which PDF solutions are measured."
