company’s most successful year to date, achieving 80 percent subscription
revenue growth and capturing significant share in key manufacturing and
distribution verticals as the market for price optimization grows.

Zilliant continues to expand its footprint in the United States and Europe
with Fortune 1000 companies across multiple industries, including
commodities, automotive parts, textile manufacturing, electrical parts,
industrial distributors and semiconductors. Notable highlights include:

• Zilliant now serves three of the six largest paint and coatings
manufacturers in the world.

manufacturing, now serving 11 of the largest companies in this sector.
• Adding three additional metal production customers in 2012, Zilliant now

“Our success this year is largely a result of our unique business model and
the underlying technology and science innovation, which enables rapid
deployment and delivers significant, ongoing business benefits to our
customers,” said Greg Peters, president and CEO of Zilliant.

As a result of Zilliant’s conversion to the SaaS model, the company has
