JMP Securities Names Kalido to Inaugural "Hot 100"

Report Recognizes the Most Innovative Privately Held Software Companies

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) -

  -- Kalido (, the active information management
     company, today announced that JMP Securities, a San Francisco-based
     investment bank, has named Kalido to its "Hot 100."
  -- Kalido was the only provider of enterprise-class BI infrastructure
     to be named in the report. Kalido provides business-model-driven
     information management for business intelligence initiatives.
  -- The report, "The Hot 100: The Best Privately Held Software
     Companies," profiles the 100 leading software companies which JMP
     Securities' equity research staff has deemed the most innovative
     and promising privately held businesses in the industry today.
  -- This is the first time JMP Securities has produced the "Hot 100,"
     making Kalido an inaugural recipient of this distinction.

Report excerpt:
  -- "While the major vendors in Business Intelligence have been
     consolidated, some high-growth private companies are racing to
     become the new leaders. These private companies are adopting new
     models... and driving new technologies."

Attributed to Bill Hewitt, president and CEO of Kalido:
  -- "Despite a year of consolidation and many years of investment,
     customers still bear the brunt of integrating multiple toolsets
     to deliver business information from their data.  Kalido understands
     that a tool-driven, manual environment isn't sufficient in today's
     fast-paced business environment.  We're excited to be named to
     JMP's Hot 100 and will continue to deliver on the long-elusive
     promise of BI."
