LONDON, UK – 23 September, 2003 – Invensys, a global leader in production
technology, is set to greatly enhance its financial reporting and
consolidation capabilities through the purchase of technology solutions
from Hyperion, (Nasdaq: HYSL) the global leader in Business Performance
Management software.

David Thomas, Group Controller of Invensys says: “We are a large global
organisation, operating in over 60 countries with complex financial
reporting needs. We identified a requirement to update our existing
platform with an application that will provide a streamlined, visible and
easy to maintain financial information system.

After evaluating a number of potential approaches, we chose Hyperion
Financial Management (HFM). We believe that HFM will deliver financial
consolidation, reporting and analysis in a single scaleable application to
meet our needs. Its introduction will enable us to shorten our financial
close process, providing senior management more time for review. Also with
HFM we saw that the pre-packaged features can be deployed out of the box
quickly and cost effectively which was particularly attractive for our
implementation plan.”

HFM centralisation gives Invensys the tools with which to greatly simplify
its financial reporting processes and, with the capability of textual
commentaries, provides a transparent view of the Group’s businesses. The
application will provide financial information to managers and executives
irrespective of location. Altogether there will be some 400 users
throughout Invensys.
