Halogen Software Achieves 23 Quarters of Year-over-Year Growth With Best Ever Quarter

Highlights include strategic financing partnership and strong momentum in overall sales, second quarter sets corporate revenue record

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 8, 2008) - Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of on-line employee performance and talent management software continues to build on its growing momentum, setting revenue records with its 23rd consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth. Highlights for this milestone quarter also included a strategic investment from JMI Equity, record revenue numbers, and marked customer growth.

Halogen's record second quarter included the addition of new customers including Aultman Health Foundation, Banner Corporation, Carle Clinic Association, Grand & Toy, International Finance Corporation, NYU Hospitals Center, Pechanga Resort & Casino, RiskMetrics Solutions, Riverside Hospitals, SUEZ Energy North America, Transcore, Transglobe Property Mgt Services, Virco Mfg. Corporation and Yeo & Yeo. Halogen's rapidly expanding customer base demonstrates the increasing awareness organizations of all sizes have of the importance of effectively managing employee performance and talent to achieve organizational goals. In the second quarter of 2008, this was especially true in the healthcare field.

For over a century, Ohio-based Aultman Health Foundation has been committed to its patients, the community, and its more than 5,000 employees. To support its employee focus, Aultman turned to Halogen to improve the quality and value of its performance appraisal process. "We're dedicated to supporting and developing our employees who form the foundation of our outstanding patient care. Our facility sought to automate our employee performance management system with a powerful, but easy to use solution," said Sue Olivera, Vice President of Human Resources with Aultman Health Foundation. "Halogen eAppraisal(TM) Healthcare provides us with enterprise-class functionality that will address the specific challenges of the healthcare field."

In addition to record number of new customers, Halogen also secured a substantial investment from JMI Equity, a private equity firm exclusively focused on investments in growing software and business services companies. JMI will work closely with Halogen to further grow the company's leadership position in the employee performance and talent management market. Harry Gruner, a General Partner at JMI, has joined Halogen's Board of Directors. Part of JMI's decision to partner with Halogen was based on the strength and loyalty of Halogen's customer base.

TransGlobe Property Management has more than a decade of management experience, and a portfolio that includes over 27,000 apartments and over 5.2 million square feet of commercial space. In June, 2008 the organization selected Halogen as the employee performance management solution for its employees. "We selected Halogen to help ensure that employee performance is driving our corporate objectives," said Michelle Ferguson, Director of Human Resources with TransGlobe Property Management. "I have been very impressed with everyone at Halogen, especially the service we have received during our implementation. Their offering will enable us to provide employees with clear and effective feedback to ensure our organization continues to meet our overall strategic goals."
