leading independent information management companies, we are constantly looking at new
solutions that can meet the requirements of our customers and prospects. Birst's
solutions offer fast and effective ways to deliver Business Intelligence and data
analytics that can deliver value as well as ease of use. The ability to host cloud BI
services either on a customer's premise or on the Birst cloud was also very attractive
to us, as it offers greater flexibility and responsiveness to our customers' demands."

how they manage and analyze their data in order to create more opportunities for
themselves. We see significant growth potential for Birst and our partner base in the

larger enterprises that are either supplementing or replacing their existing BI
solutions with more agile data analytics from the cloud. I am very pleased to have
brought Acuma on board as Birst's first UK partner to take advantage of this market
