DCT Completes Exclusive Bilateral Distribution Pact With Microtek

Largest China-Based Scanning Technology Company to Market and Sell DCT Products

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - Document Capture Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DCMT), an IP-driven leader in the design, development, manufacture and sale of advanced imaging technologies for over a decade, and Taiwan-based Microtek International, a multi-national designer, developer and manufacturer of proprietary scanner technology, today announced that Microtek has been named the exclusive Asian distributor for DCT's industry-leading products.

Today's announcement advances the bilateral partnership between the companies, following DCT's announcement as the exclusive agent in North America for Microtek products in a press release dated June 9th, 2011.

This relationship combines two global leaders in the design, development and production of image capture technologies and opens significant global revenue opportunities through the strong local sales and marketing presence of each partner. Microtek is the market leader in Asia with 1500 sales locations and 90 service centers in China.

"This partnership is undoubtedly one of the most important in DCT's history," said David P. Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Document Capture. "Microtek is the industry leader in Asia both in sales and technology. With this bilateral arrangement, DCT gains an unparalleled foothold in the fastest growing economy in the world. We at DCT look forward to this partnership both for the Company and our shareholders."

Each company will share technologies and R&D to ensure that current and future products for each territory are focused on customer needs so as to maximize sales.

"This exclusive bilateral arrangement with a company of DCT's quality is well structured to benefit both parties," said Benny Hsu, Chairman of Microtek. "We look forward to adding DCT's impressive product lineup to our own and deploying them throughout our significant sales channels in Taiwan and China that we have strategically developed over the last 30 years."
