Spatial and Kubotek Renew Long-Term Partnership Agreement

BROOMFIELD, Colo., & MARLBOROUGH, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 8, 2008— Spatial Corp., a market-leading provider of 3D components for technology applications, and Kubotek Inc., makers of geometry-based KeyCreator® computer-aided design (CAD) software, renew their World Class partnership by announcing a new contract and commitment between the two companies. The new agreement enables Kubotek to further enhance their product line using Spatials market-leading 3D component technologies as their foundation, and increases Spatials level of support and services. The agreement is designed to further Kuboteks commitment to their customers.

We have been very pleased with our ongoing relationship with Spatial. They share our dedication to providing customers the very best products and services. We signed this agreement because we are completely focused on offering the best 3D CAD software and translation solutions in the market, and Spatials ACIS and InterOp products are key components of our product and strategy, Mark Parent, COO, Kubotek USA.

Spatial components are the building blocks and foundation for Kuboteks software. Kubotek licenses Spatials 3D Modeling and Interoperability products including the 3D ACIS® Modeler, 3D ACIS PHL V5, ACIS Deformable Modeler, 3D InterOp Translators, 3D InterOp Manufacturing Options, and Select Support, one of Spatials premium support packages. Kuboteks product line includes the flagship mechanical CAD software, KeyCreator, which brings together multidimensional design and drafting, NC programming and reverse-engineering capabilities. Kuboteks other products include REALyze multiCAD data exchange tools, Kubotek Spectrum multiCAD viewer, and Validation Tool.

Kubotek now imbeds Spatials 3D InterOp and Manufacturing Option Suites within KeyCreator. The 3D InterOp Suite helps KeyCreators manufacturing base of customers provide timely, reliable data translation for popular file formats. These components translate product structure, 3D geometry and common non-geometric data such as names, color, layers and coordinate systems. The 3D InterOp Manufacturing Option components are plug-in options that further improve productivity by enabling manufacturing information such as geometric tolerances and dimensions to be translated directly from a 3D source format, removing the need to re-enter data already captured in the design. KeyCreator customers have a distinct advantage over their competitors with this unique translation capability.

Spatial and Kubotek have had a close working relationship for over 10 years. Both companies determined that it would be a good idea to update our agreement to better fit todays product development needs and business challenges. The result is a closer relationship that best suits Kubotek and their customers needs, stated Keith Mountain, CEO, Spatial. Spatial is responsive to our customers evolving needs and is committed to providing the very best products, services and mutually beneficial business relationships to address them.

The new contract between Kubotek and Spatial provides Kubotek with tighter product integration, an enhanced level of support services, pricing and packaging flexibility, and a royalty agreement that aligns both companies business objectives. This new contract supports Kuboteks customers ability to purchase products configured in new ways, and supports Kuboteks commitment to providing the highest level of customer support for their customers most challenging modeling needs.
