Telelogic Secures Additional US$1.2 Million Deal with Leading U.S. Telecom Equipment Manufacturer - Global Provider Continues to Invest in Telelogic's TAU® Software Development Tool Suites - MALMÖ, Sweden - December 12, 2003 - Telelogic (Stockholm Exchange/TLOG), the leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development, today announced that a leading U.S. telecom equipment manufacturer has extended its existing global license agreement for Telelogic TAU in a deal worth US$1.2 million. This follows a next generation license and services purchase with the same company in July 2003 valued at US$1.16 million. This latest agreement covers both Telelogic's TAU Generation2 and TAU Generation1 tool families. The telecom manufacturer uses TAU/Developer® and TAU/Architect® from Telelogic's TAU Generation2 tool family and SDL Suite, UML Suite, and TTCN Suite from Telelogic's TAU Generation1 tool family. These automated development and test solutions are deployed at more than 25 locations worldwide. "The on-going commitment to TAU by one of the world's leading telecom equipment manufacturers is a powerful endorsement of our products' capabilities," said Anders Lidbeck, President and CEO of Telelogic. "The success that the corporation has had with TAU/Developer's automatic code generation capabilities was a key factor in the decision." TAU Generation2, which is based on the UML® 2.0 standard, allows companies to deploy an integrated, multi-user visual tool solution that supports and accelerates the entire application development lifecycle - from system analysis and specification to software design, implementation and testing - all within the same development environment. Using models to visualize the development process, TAU Generation2 tools enable significant increases in productivity to be realized compared to labor-intensive manual programming approaches. TAU/Developer 2.0 received a four-star rating by Software Development magazine in an extensive independent product review featured in the April 2003 issue. Four stars, out of a possible five, equates to "Great" and "Probably belongs in your shop" on the magazine's rating system. Software Development is published monthly and is a leading magazine for software development managers, reaching 100,840 subscribers.
