LONDON, UK ­ - September 5th, 2003 - Hyperion (NASDAQ: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management software, has announced its intention to hold its first joint annual user conference together with leading business intelligence software vendor Brio. The decision to hold a combined event is a result of the recent OEM and reseller agreement entered into between Hyperion and Brio. Several hundred customer attendees from both companies
are expected to attend the conference, which is being held at the Congress Centre, Great Russell Street, London, from Tuesday 14th to Wednesday 15th October 2003. The event will be free to attend for all UK and Ireland users of Hyperion and Brio software.

This year's user conference will feature an opening plenary session followed by up to 6 concurrent tracks running for the rest of the event, many of which will be led by customers and partners describing how each of Hyperion and Brio can help them create performance accountable organisations. The
event also features new Hyperion and new Brio products designed to help customers translate strategies into plans, monitor execution, address
pressing reporting and compliance issues and provide insight on how to better manage and improve financial and operational performance.

"We very much look forward to welcoming both Hyperion and Brio customers at Hyperion's first ever combined user conference," said Mike Shelton, Managing
Director, Hyperion UK and Ireland. "In partnering with Brio, we are adding Brio's easy-to-use query and reporting capabilities to the Hyperion
platform, thereby extending Hyperion's leadership as the world's largest provider of Business Performance Management software. Brio's award winning
products provide ad hoc query & reporting, enterprise reporting, and KPI management and dashboarding that can cost effectively scale to thousands and
tens of thousands of users.

"Brio also brings powerful relational capabilities to customers through support for queries to relational, multidimensional and operational
databases from popular vendors, such as Oracle, IBM, SAP, Sybase, PeopleSoft, Siebel and others. This strengthening of our foundation
platform, with one of the easiest-to-use business intelligence tool sets in the industry, will materially advance the power and reach of Business
Performance Management solutions. Attendees to this year's combined user conference will thus be able to benefit from our vision of breakthrough
performance everywhere, from the boardroom to the frontlines, built on principles such as financial accountability, collaboration and linking
strategy with execution."
