Business Performance Management Software to Streamline Financial Reporting by 21 Days, Lead to Competitive Edge

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 13, 2003 —DENSO International America has selected Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL) Business Performance Management software to meet its goal of reducing the financial consolidation and reporting cycle. As the North American headquarters of DENSO Corporation, the $19.4 billion supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components, the company recognizes that by quickly delivering key performance data, its parent company can make essential product and business strategy decisions, satisfy investors and gain a competitive edge in the market.

“We’ll now not only be able to complete our financial close much more quickly than before, but also we will increase confidence in our performance information,” said Kim Madaj, senior manager of North American Reporting, DENSO International America. “Our managers will enjoy greater analysis, simplified reporting and global access to financial data.”

With 25 locations throughout North America, DENSO recognized the need for a consolidated and centralized way to manage financial consolidation, reporting and analysis. By implementing Hyperion software, the company can reconcile and confirm all performance data throughout the division much more easily than in the past. Because the financial team will no longer have to consolidate multiple spreadsheets, the Hyperion solution will also enable them to spend more time on analysis, accomplishing more value-added results without adding additional headcount.

“DENSO turned to Hyperion Business Performance Management solutions to make a significant reduction in closing its financials and reporting to investors with confidence,” said Nazhin Zarghamee, chief marketing officer for Hyperion. “Because the global automotive supplier market is highly competitive, a faster close is critical in enabling DENSO to spend more time analyzing performance figures and also communicate more operating data to investors prior to the competition. These are the hallmarks of a performance-accountable organization that can be achieved with Hyperion Business Performance Management software.”

Deloitte Consulting is leading the Hyperion software implementation at DENSO. As a Platinum level global system integration partner for Hyperion, Deloitte Consulting offers industry expertise in automotive and manufacturing. With its understanding of industry and business issues, the company can ensure that DENSO meets its corporate objective to reduce the time to financial close through fast implementation of Hyperion software and use of global best practices.
