Maxager Reports Record-Breaking First Quarter Results

Company Doubles Its Customer Base as Manufacturers Embrace SaaS Profit Optimization Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Maxager, the leading provider of enterprise profit optimization (EPO) solutions, today announced record-breaking first quarter results with the addition of eight new manufacturing customers. Over the past year, Maxager has grown its total customer base by over 130 percent and is now managing more than $25 billion in customer revenue with its patented profit-per-minute solution that allows companies to maximize profit and ROA. In addition to increased revenue and a rapidly growing customer base, the company has significantly expanded operations in Europe and Asia.

Maxager provides information that gives management unprecedented insight into business operations. To uncover incremental profit enhancement opportunities that were previously obscured by traditional "margin-only" analysis, Maxager integrates margin with production run-rate data to provide comprehensive historical analysis, powerful what-if modeling capability and detailed variance analysis. For the first time, all functional organizations -- sales, marketing, finance and production -- have a common metric to evaluate profitability. Equally important, profit per minute is the only metric that yields truly accurate insight into how daily actions will impact overall company profitability.

"Because companies have found it almost impossible to monitor profit per minute on a product by product basis, margin analysis was the primary mechanism that manufacturers used to control revenue and profitability," said Michael Rothschild, founder and CEO of Maxager. "Maxager has successfully addressed this challenge. Our stellar growth rate provides evidence that our value proposition has become well understood and is gaining widespread acceptance with manufacturers."

The Maxager solution has been adopted by leading manufacturers within the United States and around the world. As the result of dramatically increased sales activity in Europe and Asia, Maxager has opened an office in Frankfurt and has expanded both sales and support offices in Bangkok and Taipei.
