Borland Completes Acquisition of Segue Software

Borland Completes Acquisition of Segue Software

Company broadens Application Lifecycle Management suite to simplify and automate

Wellington. - April 27, 2006: — Borland Software Corporation has announced the completion of its acquisition of Segue Software, Inc. a global expert in delivering solutions to define, measure, manage and improve software quality.

Together, Borland and Segue offer enterprises a comprehensive set of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) products and services designed to improve software quality and make software development a more manageable and successful business process.

“The process of managing and ensuring software quality is a critical but complex issue, and organizations are looking to industry leaders like Borland to help them reduce complexity and improve predictability within this process,” said Tod Nielsen, president and chief executive officer, Borland Software.

“With Segue’s talented people and best-of-breed products, we are well positioned to change the way our industry looks at software quality – making quality a priority not just for testers and Quality Assurance teams but for every individual involved in delivering high-value software.”

“Borland’s acquisition of Segue is good news as a true application lifecycle management (ALM) solution must not merely support testing, but fully integrate it,” stated Forrester analysts Carey Schwaber and Carl Zetie in a February 2006 research report.

“One of the key benefits driving demand for ALM solutions is traceability, a key component of regulatory compliance requirements. Without Segue, Borland’s ALM solution can help shops correlate business requirements with software requirements, models and source code. But Segue helps Borland to make this a wrap: By extending traceability to testing, shops can now close the loop by testing code against their associated requirements.”

Borland has begun the process of integrating its ALM products with Segue’s award-winning Silk and SilkCentral® product lines, forming the foundation for Borland’s Lifecycle Quality Management solution which the company expects to deliver later this year.

This solution is expected to help customers solve the root cause of quality issues, identifying problems from the very beginning versus reacting to symptoms later in the process when they are more costly.

Lifecycle Quality Management is one of the four critical software development processes that Borland is addressing as part of its Software Delivery Optimization vision. Borland is committed to helping customers master these critical process areas through packaged solutions that combine the company’s ALM products, its industry-leading process optimization services, and education and skills training. Already Borland has delivered solutions for IT Management and Governance, Requirements Definition and Management and Change Management.

Former Segue Software stockholders will receive a payment of $8.67 per share in cash. Borland will be mailing materials shortly to former Segue stockholders regarding the exchange of such stockholders’ shares of Segue common stock for the cash merger consideration.
