KIRKLAND, Wash.--(Business Wire)--
Electronic Evidence Discovery, Inc. (EED(R)), a leading national
provider of eDiscovery services, today announced that it has completed
its acquisition of Daticon, LLC, a Connecticut-based provider of early
case assessment, electronic discovery, consulting and archive services
for major law firms, Fortune 500 corporations and government agencies.
The acquisition strengthens EED's onsite services, consulting and
project management expertise and expands its presence in the
Northeastern United Sates.

   EED announced a definitive agreement to acquire Daticon on June 5,
2008. The company pursued Daticon because of its experienced and
skilled staff and established base of loyal corporate clients built by
its strong track record of providing on-site eDiscovery services.
Daticon's service offerings coupled with EED's market-leading
Discovery Partner(R) review and hosting platform and Discovery Process
eXcellence (DPX) project management service will better serve the
complete eDiscovery needs of large corporations and law firms.

   "The acquisition of Daticon further strengthens EED's position as
a well-resourced provider in the eDiscovery market," said Dave McCann,
CEO of EED, Inc. "The breadth of our combined client base, the
combination of our project consulting and project management teams and
the larger R&D organization will enable EED to better service Fortune
500 Corporations and major law firms in the Northeast and across the
United States."

   As a result of the acquisition, EED now has local service
capabilities in Seattle, London, Norwich, CT, and Los Angeles. EED
will continue to offer convenient local evidence collection and rapid
file conversion and processing under the Daticon brand for customers
in the Northeast.
