JADE PRESS RELEASE


Former Unisys Ceo Joins Aoraki Corporation

Christchurch, New Zealand, 5 July 2001. Former Chief Executive of Unisys New Zealand and Unisys Canada, Brian Clark, has joined computer software company Aoraki Corporation Limited as President of JADE North America.

Announcing the appointment, JADE Executive Director of Sales & Marketing, Peter Helms, said Mr Clark had been brought on board to expand JADE's profile in Canada and North America. "Brian will significantly strengthen our ability to capitalise on the enormous business opportunities we have with JADE in this area."

"We are moving into the Northern Hemisphere to provide big solutions for large enterprises. Our JADE product allows us to develop a new generation of customer-centric internet-enabled applications."

The initial focus within North America and Canada will be in the healthcare and education sectors of the market, where Mr Clark can concentrate on two of Aoraki Corporation's products, the Jasper student management system and Cardinal Healthcare's community care systems.

"With his expertise in the IT Industry, Brian will play a crucial role in taking our products to market within North America, says Mr Helms"

Mr Clark has more than 28 years experience in the IT industry and has a long running relationship with Aoraki Corporation. He was instrumental in taking Aoraki's first product LINC to the global market and was the world's first LINC Marketing Manager.

"Whilst it was exciting, back in 1980, taking the LINC product into what was then the Burroughs proprietary mainframe user base, it is infinitely more exciting, now in 2001, to be taking JADE built IP into a dramatically bigger, open systems based market" says Mr Clark.

A member of the Canadian Advanced Technology Association, Mr Clark is also a member of the Canadian Business Information Network, Information Technology Association of Canada and the Information Technology Association of New Zealand.

Mr Clark will be based in Ottawa, Canada.
