Alibre Makes Global Push to Accelerate Growth With First Worldwide Internet Promotion

RICHARDSON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 08, 2006 -- Alibre today announced its first global promotion to accelerate the rapid expansion of its user base following the record-breaking release of its free Alibre Design Xpress software. As part of the promotion Alibre is offering its flagship 3D parametric CAD software, Alibre Design Professional, at an unprecedented 50% discount worldwide for the month of May.

Since the launch of Alibre Design Xpress in August 2005, there have been over 207,000 registrations and downloads, with over 30,000 more each month. A significant percentage of these Alibre Design Xpress users have become paying customers. This global internet promotion is intended to build on that success.

"The rapidly expanding use of Alibre Design proves what we've been saying all along -- our business model works. We are able to profitably provide professional 3D parametric CAD at prices below $1000. We have been selling in North America this way for years and have honed our business to do it efficiently. We've been testing our sales and marketing processes with our VARs in Europe and Asia and we're ready to flip the switch worldwide," states Greg Milliken, president and CEO of Alibre.

VARs form the backbone of Alibre's distribution strategy outside of North America and will continue to do so, but Alibre has been working with them to replicate the rapid market penetration strategies that have worked in the US and Canada.

Alibre Design Professional delivers 3D parametric solid modeling, associative 2D drafting, and Alibre's unique Real-time Team Design for collaboration and integrated, live support. More advanced functionality included in the Professional version consists of the new design configurations capability added in version 9.0, sheet metal design, and integrated data management. Alibre Design Professional, always available at an affordable price point, is now made even more accessible to individual designers and small teams.
