PHILADELPHIA, July 19, 2011 -

Quintiq, a leading provider of href="www.quintiq.com/solutions/advanced-planning-and-scheduling.aspx">
Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) enterprise software
solutions, and Philadelphia-area private equity firms LLR Partners
and NewSpring Capital announced today that the firms have made a
significant minority investment in the company with the remaining
ownership held by Quintiq’s founders and employees. The
well-established Quintiq management team remains in place to
continue steering the company as it has successfully done since its
founding in 1997.

As a profitable, privately owned
company with year-over-year growth of approximately 40%, Quintiq
has established a strong market position to continue on its growth
path. Nevertheless, the company welcomed the opportunity to partner
with professional investors who bring significant experience in
helping guide companies through their growth cycles. The investment
and professional backing will allow Quintiq to better serve
existing customers and reach its goal to become the market leader
in the href="www.quintiq.com/solutions/supply-chain-planning/supply-chain-optimization.aspx">
supply chain optimization sector.

“We are very pleased to partner with
LLR and NewSpring as we embark on our next chapter of growth,” said
Victor Allis, CEO of Quintiq. “They are an excellent fit for our
company, both financially and professionally. Both firms are based
close to our North American headquarters and throughout the entire
process their teams have been great to work with. We very much look
forward to growing our business together.”

Greg Case, a Partner of LLR, commented,
“It’s rare to see a company that has so successfully bootstrapped
itself, without any outside financial backing, to reach Quintiq’s
current scale. With the additional resources now available to
Quintiq, we will be able to assist the company in href="www.quintiq.com/news-2011/quintiq-posts-record-breaking-revenues.aspx">
managing its rapid growth.”

Marc Lederman, a Partner of NewSpring,
added, “Having already demonstrated it has the technology, vision
and effective management to succeed in its market, Quintiq is
poised to become the clear market leader. Working together, I am
confident we can achieve that objective.”

Quintiq is managed from dual
headquarters in the U.S. and Europe, providing a broad base for its
worldwide operations. Victor Allis, based in Philadelphia, will
continue to serve as worldwide CEO, and Arjen Heeres, based in The
, will remain COO. Quintiq expects to hire additional
talent to support the company’s growth initiatives and existing
customer base.
