CAMELEON SOFTWARE - 2012 sales figure: +27%

(Thomson Reuters ONE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACTS Thibault de Bouville, CFO, tdebouville(at) Virginie Dupin, Marketing Director, vdupin(at) +33 (0)811 70 78 78 2012 sales figure: +27% A particularly robust 4(th) quarter: +36% Toulouse, France and Chicago, Il, USA, January 31, 2013 Cameleon Software (PAR:CAM), the global leader in product design, sales configuration, quotes, and proposals software, today announced its provisional revenue figures for 2012.

----------------------------+------------------------------+---------+-----+ | | | % | (€Millions) | Q4 2012 | Q4 2011 | | | | |   | ----------------------------+------------------------------+---------+-----+ Software revenue 2.29 1.80 27% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Services revenue 0.90 0.54 67% Total Revenue Q4 3.19 2.34 36% (Provisional - unaudited) | | | | | | | % | (€Millions) | 2012* | 2011 | | | | |   | ----------------------------+------------------------------+---------+-----+ Software revenue 7.55 6.20 22% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Services revenue 2.89 2.02 43% Total Annual Revenue 10.43 8.22 27% (Provisional - unaudited) *see details by quarter at the end of this press release Provisional consolidated sales totaled €10.43 M for the 2012 fiscal year, compared to €8.22 M over the 2011 figures, for +27% growth. At €3.19 M, sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 were up 36% in comparison with Q4 2011.

During the fourth quarter, in the United States, the Group notably signed an SaaS agreement with one of the global leaders in optics and ophthalmology, and another with the world's leading education group. These two new contracts strengthen Cameleon Software's positioning with its major accounts. They also reflect its aggressive expansion in America, ensuring that the company has an established base from which to roll out major deployments in the future and providing the large scale visibility needed to win new accounts. Business in the region grew by +39% over the year.

Cameleon Software also made several substantial sales to key European companies offering health and other types of insurance. MMA, for example, the 3rd-largest insurance company with a network of agents in France, will be installing the Cameleon solution for all its sales materials and channels. Cameleon has thus become the natural CPQ leader in these markets. In addition, the company further strengthened its established base in industry and technology in 2012.

Its dynamic software sales also contribute to the strong growth in revenue from services, namely the expert services provided to clients installing Cameleon.

Recurring revenue (maintenance fees and SaaS fees) represented 40% of consolidated sales in 2012. SaaS revenue jumped by 270% over the period. The company's order backlog (perpetual licenses and SaaS fees) is expanding, rising from €5.90 M on December 31, 2011 to €6.39 M on December 31, 2012.

According to Jacques Soumeillan, President and CEO of Cameleon Software, "This record year, capped by a particularly robust fourth quarter, demonstrates how relevant the Cameleon Software Group's strategy is. We are consolidating our position as the leader in the major accounts market and as the leader in technology through the constant innovations added to the Cameleon Suite. For 2013, we foresee an accelerated transition toward the SaaS model in Europe, which should lead to stabilized sales in the region while significantly boosting our order backlog and recurring sales. Meanwhile, we expect sales in the United States to remain very dynamic and to drive the Group's growth in 2013."
