Software 2008 Conference – LAS VEGAS (April 29, 2008) –

Intacct, a leader in on-demand financial management and accounting applications, today announced it has raised an additional $15 million of financing in a round led by Bessemer Venture Partners. Existing investors Emergence Capital, Sigma Partners, and Sutter Hill Ventures all participated in the round. When combined with $14 million raised in June 2007, Intacct has raised $29 million in the past nine months, ranking it among the top funded software companies over the past year. Today’s announcement was made at Software 2008 in Las Vegas, where Intacct is being recognized as one of the top innovators in the software industry.

“We’re delighted to welcome Bessemer to our team,” said Mike Braun, president and CEO of Intacct. “The past year has put Intacct on an entirely different and much higher growth trajectory. This success has attracted additional capital which we’ll use to drive continued innovation across our award winning family of financial applications, and to expand into additional vertical markets and channels.”

Bessemer Venture Partners is the nation’s oldest venture capital firm and one with a truly global footprint. The firm has been especially active in Software as a Service (SaaS), with investments in such companies as LinkedIn, Postini and Eloqua. Bessemer, together with Bay Partners, has also set up a special fund to invest in companies committed to salesforce.com’s Force.com platform.

“Intacct is a disruptive player in the vast and proven market for financial applications. While today’s market is dominated by large companies with client/server products, the future will belong to the Software as a Service model,” said Byron Deeter, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Intacct offers growing businesses access to superior financial applications, rapid innovation and best of breed partnerships – all in all, a better value proposition. BVP’s investment will help the company accelerate growth through expanded product development and client acquisition efforts.”

Intacct continues to experience record demand for its SaaS financial management and accounting applications and accelerated client adoption, resulting in strong year over year financial growth and significant hiring across the organization. In addition, Intacct has added talented industry leaders from Ariba, Google, Intuit, Mirapoint and Postini to its executive team over the past several months.
