Global Software Publishing Strengthens Product Offering with Mathsoft's Award-Winning StudyWorks!; Agreement Brings Together Two Leading Names in the Educational Software Market

NEW YORK and CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 19, 2003--Global Software Publishing (GSPNA), North America, exclusive publisher of Dorling Kindersley CD-ROMs, today announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Mathsoft Engineering & Education, Inc. to publish its award-winning StudyWorks!(R) software product line. Adding StudyWorks math and science software allows GSP to extend its educational mix from its signature Pre-K - 6th grade market base into the middle and high school levels, where students are faced with more complex curriculum challenges. Under this arrangement, StudyWorks will be sold alongside the Dorling Kindersley software products.

"It is a dovetail fit," says Wayne Zimmerman, vice president of Global Software Publishing, North America. "Our other major offering, the Dorling Kindersley line, is well recognized as top quality software that primary school educators respect and parents trust. By adding the best math and science software brand on the market to our list, GSP reaffirms its commitment to quality educational software for all student grade and ability levels."

The StudyWorks family has earned numerous awards and recognition from respected organizations such as the Association of Educational Publishers, Mercomm, Technology & Learning, Children's Software Review and the National Parenting Center.

"Partnering with GSP is a strategic move on the part of Mathsoft," said Chris Randles, president and CEO of Mathsoft. "StudyWorks is a proven product with an excellent reputation with students, parents, and teachers. Partnering with GSP is a great opportunity for Mathsoft because we can now focus all our efforts on the corporate engineering and higher education markets."

The StudyWorks releases for the 2003-04 school year will be published in July 2003 with potential product expansion of the line to come as GSP works with Mathsoft to update, revise and introduce new titles, particularly as schools begin to meet the demands of the new federal No Child Left Behind standards. This new era of mandatory testing will create new possibilities for StudyWorks/GSP to supplement classroom instruction with educational software.
