Press release from the issuing company

Montreal, Quebec– January 14, 2009 – Objectif Lune, a leader in the development and commercialization of variable data documents production software solutions, today announced the opening of an office in South Africa. Headquartered in Canada, 14 sales offices worldwide, Objectif Lune is reinforcing its global positioning and worldwide presence with the opening of this South Africa office.
The office will provide sales and channel marketing for PlanetPress Suite, PrintShop Mail and PrintShop Web as well as full localized assistance to the South African market while also increasing the relationships with local printer manufacturers, distributors and software integrators for the distribution of Objectif Lune's product portfolio. "The company's successful penetration in Europe through local presence and support is key in further demonstrating Objectif Lune's proven approach to deliver world-class solutions and services to all of our clients," said Didier Gombert, CEO of Objectif Lune.
"Objectif Lune SA will serve as the local platform for the commercialization and promotion of our products in this promising market and by opening an office in South Africa we are once again proving our dedication to delivering high quality localized solutions and services to our customers and partners," mentioned Marcel Wijnhorst, Director of Sales of Objectif Lune SA.
Already active on this territory for the past eighteen months, Objectif Lune has by now established strong relationships with key players such as Actnet, a privately owned company established in 1987 with its head office in Kyalami, South Africa. Specializing in Enterprise Output Management and Content Solutions, Actnet has played an important role in establishing Objectif Lune's products as the ultimate solutions for variable data printing and workflow management in the South African market and the relationship is a key factor on a promising implementation in this new territory. The Enterprise Document Delivery (EDD) solution developed by Actnet and the Objectif Lune products are complimentary applications. EDD is an email distribution package, which uses the data images in Adobe PDF format as the attached document. ACTNET has been at the forefront of printing solutions and with Objectif Lune is dedicated and committed to delivering high quality services. "We welcome Objectif Lune and Marcel Wijnhorst to South Africa and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership. With four engineers already trained and experienced on the Objectif Lune products Actnet will continue to provide our existing and new customers with service and support that is unmatched!" mentions Nolan Sandham, Director at Actnet.
"We are confident we have the solutions to appropriately serve the South African market and enable businesses to take the leap to variable data printing, workflow automation, output management and more. The strong partnerships we have developed and the activities surrounding this new office implementation confirms that this is the appropriate time for us to officially position the company in South Africa and we are confident this strategic move will prove successful" says Mr. Wijnhorst.
