MANCHESTER, UK., May 5, 2003 – Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), the world leader in Business Performance Management software, today announced the extension of its channels program to Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The program helps to create value for its partner community through improved partner benefits that increase sales opportunities for Business Performance Management solutions.

According to Renaud Finaz de Villaine, Chief Marketing Officer at Business & Decision Group, “Hyperion delivers the premier real Business Performance Management software on the market. It now has an international partner program and channels strategy to match. This new program will most certainly help us provide better service to our European customers through Hyperion’s technical support and certification program, and help us meet our sales goals with excellent sales tools and assistance.”

“The issues of corporate accountability, along with the consolidation of global systems integrators, have given us the opportunity to demonstrate that Hyperion is the Business Performance Management partner of choice internationally,” said Francois Lainé, Hyperion’s Director of Channel Sales in EMEA. “In addition to offering new benefits to our partners, we have defined program qualification requirements, such as training and individual product certification, to ensure first class service for our customers.”

Hyperion is now seeking additional consulting resellers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) in order to reach its goal of increasing revenue attained through indirect sales.

The company believes that strong partnerships based on innovative solutions and superior technologies are key components of customer satisfaction. The Hyperion Channels Partner Program offers six partnership categories and three partner achievement levels. The program will
strengthen Hyperion’s partnerships by supporting the specific business objectives, market value
proposition, and technical expertise of partner relationships. The program also encompasses structured channel initiatives, technical knowledge transfer and demand creation programs.

Lainé concluded, “Our partner program is already running smoothly in North America with positive results for our customers, our partners and for Hyperion. We have a program that will give our partners an opportunity to grow both sales and services revenue in focused markets. It employs a proactive approach to business planning and target revenue initiatives for all parties.”
