BSQUARE to Distribute Microsoft Embedded Solutions in Europe

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart, connected devices, today announced it has entered into a new European distribution agreement with Microsoft. BSQUARE will now distribute the entire Microsoft Windows Embedded portfolio, such as Windows Embedded CE and Windows Embedded POSReady 7, in Europe.

This new European agreement expands upon the existing distribution rights BSQUARE already has for Microsoft Windows Embedded in North America and Microsoft Windows Mobile worldwide. BSQUARE will provide OEMs and device manufacturers with access to Microsoft Embedded licensing. These licensing services are complemented by the end-to-end BSQUARE consulting, development and integration services and automated testing solutions.

Brian Crowley, chief executive officer of BSQUARE, said, "BSQUARE continues to strengthen its global distribution relationships. This new agreement with Microsoft is aligned with our strategic focus on creating a portfolio of BSQUARE solutions that enable device makers around the world to deliver smart, connected devices and also provides robust, regional growth opportunities for the company."

The agreement signals a strategic expansion of the European market for BSQUARE, a company focused on enabling the creation of smart, connected devices for mobility, automotive, retail, and other fast-growing vertical markets. BSQUARE will focus initially on new licensing distribution in the United Kingdom and German markets, complementing the company's existing European business. BSQUARE has its primary European office in Bristol, United Kingdom and provides multinational OEMs and ODMs with development, licensing, integration and testing services from locations around the globe.
