Epicor(R) Receives Ratings From Standard and Poor's and Moody's

IRVINE, Calif., March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of integrated enterprise software solutions for the midmarket, today announced that Standard & Poor's Ratings Service and Moody's Investor Service have issued credit ratings for the Company. Standard & Poor's assigned a 'B+' corporate credit rating with a 'positive' outlook. Standard & Poor's cited the company's "solid presence within its mid-market niche, a largely recurring revenue base across a broad customer base, and moderate debt leverage" as positive factors in determining the rating. Moody's assigned a 'B1' corporate family rating with a 'stable' outlook while indicating that, "the ratings could be positively influenced by continued strong organic growth and increasing market share in existing vertical markets."

The ratings were sought in connection with the term loan component of Epicor's previously announced proposed $200 million credit facility (inclusive of a $25 million accordion feature) being arranged by KeyBank Capital Markets. The proposed facility is intended to refinance Epicor's existing $125 million revolving credit line used primarily to finance its acquisition of CRS Retail Systems, Inc.

"We are quite pleased with the ratings assigned to Epicor by Standard & Poor's and Moody's and view these as a reflection of our leading position as a global provider of enterprise software solutions to the midmarket," said Michael A. Piraino, EVP and Chief Financial Officer of Epicor. "With an excellent track record of revenue growth, considerable liquidity and strong cash flow from operations, we have the resources necessary to achieve both our short term and long-term growth objectives. And importantly, our strong balance sheet provides Epicor with the financial flexibility to actively participate in a rapidly consolidating marketplace."
