Citrix Systems, Inc. today announced that Mark B. Templeton, the company's
current president, has been appointed chief executive officer, effective
immediately. Roger W. Roberts will remain Chairman of the Board and, for a
period of time, an employee of the company. Effective immediately, he will
relinquish his interim role as chief operating officer. John Cunningham has
been named senior vice president of finance and operations, giving him new
operational responsibilities in addition to his existing role as chief
financial officer.

"Mark has strong leadership qualities, broad industry experience and great
market vision," said Roberts. "Operating results have been improving, the
executive team's bandwidth has expanded significantly, and the company is
well on its way to successfully integrating the acquisition of Sequoia
Software. Mark's knowledge of the company, its strategic direction and its
challenges make him the best person to lead Citrix."

"Citrix is well-positioned for its next phase of growth," said Templeton.
"We accomplished a great deal in the past, but there are just as many
important challenges and opportunities ahead of us. I look forward to
leveraging the company's great products, people and market position in order
to take us to this next level."
