Enviance Named to JMP Securities Hot 100

Leader in Internet-Based Environmental Health and Safety Compliance Management Named One of the Best Privately Held Software Companies

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Enviance, the leading provider of Internet-based systems for the management and automation of environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance activities and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management, today announced its inclusion in JMP Securities' report, "Hot 100: The Best Privately Held Software Companies." The report profiles 100 of the leading private companies in the software industry, as identified by the software research team at JMP Securities, and Enviance is honored to be the only EHS company to be included on the list.

Enviance attributes its success to its continued growth in servicing its users in 45 countries in multiple industries such as energy, utility, chemical, and pharmaceutical among others, most of whom are in the Fortune 1000, including DuPont and American Electric Power. In addition, Enviance's substantial growth over the past several years has been driven in part by its GHG management systems, which allow customers to leverage their compliance data to produce GHG footprints, manage GHG emissions, and produce reporting in conformity with the multitude of GHG protocols in use today.

"As near-term regulation of GHG becomes a virtual certainty, Enviance customers are taking a leadership position and proactively implementing a means of credibly measuring GHG emissions and the success of their reduction efforts," said Lawrence Goldenhersh, president and CEO of Enviance. "As the central repository of emissions data for these companies, the Enviance System is the most cost-effective and reliable platform to use for GHG management."

Goldenhersh continued, "With CFOs and CEOs focused on preserving competitiveness in this carbon-constrained world and with the General Counsel's office focused on timely public disclosure of GHG-related challenges, the demand for Enviance has grown exponentially since the first quarter of 2007, and shows no sign of abating. This recognition as the only Top 100 in the EHS space makes us very proud and, of course, we have our customers to thank for the honor."

Enviance's flagship platform is the Enviance System, an Internet-based service that allows facilities to centrally manage and report, in real-time, all aspects of regulatory compliance including: greenhouse gas, NERC, Title V, Sarbanes-Oxley, water and waste requirements among others. Because Enviance is based on the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, the customer is not required to purchase any hardware or software, dramatically improving overall deployment time, operational efficiency, and cost effectiveness.

The Enviance System will be showcased as part of the company's annual user conference to be held this year from May 19 - 22, 2008 in San Diego, CA. The conference gathers leading energy, chemical and pharmaceutical executives to discuss the latest developments in environmental, health and safety compliance and greenhouse gas management. At this year's conference, EnCana Oil & Gas (USA) will give a keynote address describing its participation in the Driving Change™ pilot, where the Enviance System is combined with vehicle diagnostic and telemetric capabilities to power the nation's first vehicular-based GHG footprint and reduction initiative. In addition, Enviance will host a keynote panel discussion focused on issues facing organizations in the carbon-constrained world.
