Business Performance Management Suite to Help Norwegian Telecom Provider Save Money, Improve ROI

SUNNYVALE, Calif., December 17, 2003 – Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL) today announced that Norwegian telecommunications provider, Telenor, has purchased Hyperion Business Performance Management software to help the company optimize its IT infrastructure while improving financial management.

Telenor had previously used individual applications from various suppliers in its subsidiary companies to support financial management tasks including budgeting, analysis and reporting. The company chose to implement Hyperion software as part of a cost savings initiative that includes reduction in the number of its technology vendors, optimization of IT architecture and an improved rate of return on technology investments.

“A key objective at Telenor is to implement a uniform suite of Business Performance Management applications across the enterprise,” said Andreas Vik, Project Manager for the Hyperion implementation at Telenor. “We assessed our options and determined that Hyperion offered the most comprehensive solution to meet our holistic needs for budgeting, planning, analysis and reporting, as well as scorecarding and monitoring. We expect our investment in Hyperion solutions to provide improved overall financial management.”

Telenor has implemented Hyperion Planning for budgeting, which it will use as an integral part of a budget management process that includes a top-down and bottom-up approach. This approach includes decentralized administration and development of local budgets that roll up to support Telenor’s global operations.

Hyperion software will be used by approximately 500 employees at Telenor, the largest Norwegian telecommunications company with significant international business as a mobile phone operator.
