RedPrairie Corporation to Acquire GEOCOMtms

MILWAUKEE & QUEBEC—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 21, 2007— RedPrairie Corporation, a leading consumer driven optimization company, and GEOCOMtms, Inc. have jointly announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement, whereby RedPrairie will acquire GEOCOMtms. The combined companies, operating under the name RedPrairie Corporation, will integrate and support all products and services from both organizations within RedPrairie's end-to-end (E2e(TM)) suite. The acquisition will meet the fleet requirements of many industries, including: food and grocery, petroleum, retail, courier, and healthcare delivery. RedPrairie's Global Transportation Group will integrate and oversee GEOCOMtms's Quebec City and Atlanta offices under the direction of RedPrairie Global Transportation Group President Tim Conroy.

The acquisition will fulfill demands from shippers and transportation service providers for essential, robust fleet management solutions that provide route optimization and visibility to manage same day deliveries for private and commercial fleets. These capabilities improve efficiencies and reduce costs by providing effective driver and asset utilization.

GEOCOMtms specializes in providing optimization to manage multiple-stop daily delivery fleet scheduling. The solution creates a dynamic link between transportation planners and drivers, combining location based services and in-transit rerouting to better manage fleets in a real time transportation environment.

Says Conroy, "As we continue to expand our transportation capabilities in North America and beyond, this solution brings RedPrairie customers exciting capabilities to manage domestic and international fleet requirements. It also benefits GEOCOMtms customers who will have access to RedPrairie's E2e transportation and supply chain capabilities."

Adds RedPrairie CEO John Jazwiec, "We have enjoyed a long-term, successful partnership with GEOCOMtms having offered their advanced solutions to our customer base. We now look forward to bringing these capabilities in-house and welcoming GEOCOMtms customers and employees into the RedPrairie family."

This acquisition is expected to close by the end of February.
