LONDON, UK – October 27th, 2004 – Hyperion (NASDAQ: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management software, today announced it has appointed PureApps as an authorised UK distributor targeting companies of less than £500 million turnover.

Under the terms of the deal, PureApps will focus on selling Hyperion Essbase 7X, the market leading business intelligence and enterprise analytics platform, and Hyperion Planning, the leading Web-based planning, budgeting and forecasting solution,

Richard Carrington, UK Partner Sales Director at Hyperion says: “We are very pleased to appoint PureApps as a new UK distributor. As demand continues to grow for our Business Performance Management solutions, partners such as PureApps play a key role in meeting the needs of medium-sized UK businesses.”

According to Steve Derbyshire, Sales Director at PureApps: “Hyperion is widely regarded as the prominent solution provider in the Business Performance Management (BPM) sector. There is a common misconception that this type of software solution is not appropriate for companies turning over less than £500 million. This really isn’t the case. Given the wealth of experience our Hyperion consultants have in the BPM arena, we believe we are very well placed to expand the market for this kind of solution and to help these companies reap the well-documented benefits of BPM.”
