Nimsoft Launches Into 2008 With Record Q1 Results

New Bookings Soar 71 Percent Over Prior Year, Driven by 83 Percent Increase in Recurring Revenue and 27 Brand New Name Customers

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Nimsoft, Inc., the "Big 4" alternative for IT performance and availability monitoring solutions, today announced that the company has launched into 2008 with record Q1 results. Nimsoft smashed its business expectations for 2007 and led the first quarter 2008 with similar rapid growth that underscores the company's ever increasing momentum. New bookings for the quarter rose 71 percent year over year, and recurring revenue, driven by an increasing amount of subscription business, jumped 83 percent when compared to the same quarter last year. The company added 27 brand new name customers during Q1, bringing the total customer count to 643 in 30 countries.

"The momentum we have is just astounding," said Gary Read, president and CEO, Nimsoft. "Whether it's a new customer replacing their overly complex and overly expensive existing products or an existing customer continuing to add to their Nimsoft investment, all are gaining unparalleled satisfaction and return on investment. One major financial services customer estimated that we will save them over $2 million in the first year when compared to the prior product they were using. Another global consumer products company reported they were reassigning six team members because NimBUS didn't require the hands-on management of their previous solution. Nimsoft has the right solution for enterprise customers who want scalability and advanced features without complexity."

Other highlights for the quarter included:

--  Nimsoft announced the acquisition of Indicative Software, which added
    business service management (BSM) and passive end-user response time
    monitoring capabilities to the Nimsoft product portfolio of network
    monitoring, server monitoring, database monitoring, application monitoring
    and service level management (SLM). Nimsoft now supports the full range of
    IT monitoring priorities.
--  The Indicative acquisition resulted in the addition of a new R&D lab
    located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Nimsoft plans to expand the Colorado
--  Information Week, a CMP Media publication, declared Nimsoft the "Best
    of the Best" among nine application performance management (APM) solutions.
    They noted NimBUS was "a real leader" in service level management for its
    "flexible and robust SLA reporting engine" and ability to "report SLA
    performance granularly ... which many APM tools are unable to do."
--  The San Francisco Business Times recognized Nimsoft as a "Best Place
    to Work" in the Bay Area. The award was based upon survey results of
    Nimsoft employees and ranked competitively among other companies in the Bay
--  The MSPAlliance appointed Nimsoft CEO Gary Read to its Vendor Advisory
    Board, which will address vendor-specific issues related to creating
    technical standards, supporting the global managed service provider
    profession, and improving relationships between vendors and MSPs.
--  Nimsoft continues to lead the industry in the real time monitoring of
    virtualized and physical environments. Nimsoft announced new automation
