Press release from the issuing company

Affordable application makes it easy for business users to edit standard PDF documents CAMBRIDGE, UK and WALTHAM, Mass., June 10 -- Global Graphics Software, a subsidiary of Global Graphics SA (Nasdaq Europe: GLGR, Euronext: GLOG) and a leading developer and supplier of high performance solutions for document creation, management and printing, has launched Jaws PDF Editor, an affordable application for the business and small or home office user to edit and mark-up Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Jaws PDF Editor has been developed to meet strong demand from Global Graphics' customers and corporate users for an application that combines the most popular document editing tools with a familiar office document environment. The latest addition to the Global Graphics' range of PDF technologies*, Jaws PDF Editor can be used as a stand-alone tool or as a companion to Jaws PDF Creator, Global Graphics' popular PDF creation package. Jaws PDF Editor gives users the capability to view, search, manipulate, comment on, mark-up and print PDF documents with a reduced user learning curve. "Until now a major software investment was required to obtain PDF manipulation and editing capabilities, particularly within multi-user organizations," says Alan Wheeler, Vice President of Corporate Sales Development, Global Graphics Software. "We have identified a significant market for a simple PDF editing capability which provides the most popular tools, and is easy to learn and easy to use. Jaws PDF Editor provides businesses with flexible editing and comment/ mark up capabilities, in addition to enabling them to view, read and print PDF files, but without the need to pay a hefty premium." PDF is a standard, compact file format that maintains all the fonts, formatting, and graphics integrity of any computer generated document, regardless of the original application it was prepared with, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. PDF files are ideal for document exchange and archiving, can be shared, distributed, viewed, edited, manipulated, published onto web sites and CD-ROMs, and printed on any printer. As a result the PDF is quickly being adopted as the internal and external standard file format within business, education and government.
