Company Delivers 50 Percent Revenue Growth; CEO Mike Braun Announces Intent to Retire and Remain on Board of Directors

SAN JOSE, Calif. (July 09, 2009) –

At a time when most software companies are experiencing significant declines in software license revenues, Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting applications, today announced record results for its 2009 fiscal year, ended June 30. For the full year, subscription revenues increased by 50% over 2008’s previous record results. Sequentially, the company saw strong growth in new business which grew 56% in Q4 over the prior fiscal quarter. Throughout the fiscal year, a record number of companies graduated from QuickBooks® to Intacct and more companies than ever before switched their financial applications from NetSuite, Microsoft and Sage to Intacct.

Having led Intacct to triple revenue over the past two and one half years, Mike Braun, president and CEO of Intacct, announced his intent to retire by the end of 2009 after 38 years in the information technology business. Braun, who will turn 60 in October, has also recently retired from the Board of Directors of Callidus Software (NASDAQ: CALD). Braun will continue as CEO of Intacct until a successor is named and will continue to serve on Intacct’s Board of Directors following his retirement.

“Intacct had another outstanding year. Our strategies, commitment to client success and great execution have led to rapid growth that has surpassed our competitors by a substantial margin,” said Braun. “When I joined Intacct in 2007, I told our board that I wanted to retire at age 60; so now is the time to begin an orderly transition process. I’m very proud of the work we’ve done and excited about Intacct’s future.”
