Daleen Announces Settlement Agreement

BOCA RATON, Fla. --(Business Wire)-- Oct. 13, 2004 -- Daleen Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:DALN) ("Daleen"), a global provider of licensed and outsourced billing and customer management, operational support systems (OSS) and revenue assurance solutions for traditional and next generation service providers, today announced that it has reached an agreement in principle with plaintiffs to settle a consolidated class action lawsuit brought on behalf of a purported class of stockholders of Daleen common stock against Daleen, its directors, Behrman Capital II, L.P. and certain affiliates, Daleen's largest stockholder ("Behrman"), and Quadrangle Group LLC and certain affiliates ("Quadrangle"). The agreement in principle is subject to a number of conditions including the execution of a formal settlement agreement and approval by the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware.

In connection with the settlement, Daleen has agreed that, upon final court approval of the settlement and subject to consummation of Daleen's merger and going private transaction, each record holder of Daleen common stock as of the effective time of the merger (other than the defendants and the holders of Daleen's Series F Preferred Stock and their affiliates, including Behrman, who are excluded from the purported class) will be entitled to a cash settlement payment equivalent to $0.0366 per share of common stock. The proposed settlement further contemplates that counsel for the plaintiffs will apply to the court for an award of fees and expenses not in excess of $125,000 in the aggregate. This settlement amount and the fees and expenses are in addition to the cash consideration of $0.0384 per share of common stock to which such holders are entitled in the transactions. If the settlement is approved, all claims against Daleen, its directors, Behrman and Quadrangle will be dismissed with prejudice.
