       soft Xpansion allows for the high relevance of the PDF format by publishing a range of altogether eight
       software products in 2009. Four products are already available. The other four will have been released by
       the end of the year.

       Bochum, Germany -- In the field of electronic documents, nowadays PDF may definitely be characterized
       as the file format that constitutes the most widespread standard for digitally-based communication and
       teamwork. The importance of PDF is underlined by the fact that in July 2008, the International
       Organization for Standardization (ISO) published the approved ISO 32000-1 standard based upon PDF 1.7.
       PDF has become an official ISO standard.

        In 2009, soft Xpansion allows for the high relevance of PDF by publishing a range of altogether eight
       software products. While four products are already available, the other four will have been released by the
       end of 2009. Each program will have its own scope of functionality, thus meeting specific needs in
       connection with the creation and use of PDF files. An extensive comparison of the products can be seen on (at the bottom of this page).

        The current version of the product family (5.5) is compatible with Windows 7 and can be run on 32-bit and
       on 64-bit systems alike.

        Family Members:
        Compared to the other family members, Perfect PDF 5 Premium (Recommended Retail Price, RRP, is
       89.99 Euros) comes with the widest range of functionality. It is qualified for all tasks associated with the
       PDF file format, including features for the conversion of documents into PDF files, for changing properties,
       for content editing, for commenting, designing, protecting and digital signing, as well as for the creation
       and filling of PDF forms.

        Perfect PDF 5 (RRP: 59.99 Euros) does not include the import of meta information from Microsoft Office
       documents, but is identical to the Premium version in all other respects. The third product, Perfect PDF
       Editor (RRP: 49.99 Euros), is a comprehensive application for the editing of existing PDF files and for the
       creation of completely new PDF documents from empty files (that is, without any converted source
       document), including building PDF forms. The software also includes functionality for the conversion of
       images and simple text files into PDFs.

        On the other hand, Perfect PDF Converter (RRP: 19.99 Euros) cannot be used for editing PDF files and for
       creating PDF forms, but is focussed on the creation of PDF files by converting source files and data into
       PDF. The Converter will be released at the end of 2009.

        Office to PDF Premium (RRP: 24.99 Euros) has been developed to concentrate on the conversion of files
       from Word, Excel and PowerPoint into PDFs by a seamless integration into these Microsoft programs. It
       also imports meta information like tables of contents, links, form fields, comments and a lot more meta data
       into the converted PDF files.

        The three programs Word to PDF (will be released in October 2009), Excel to PDF and Web to PDF (both
       scheduled for December 2009) focus, respectively, on the creation of PDF files from Word, Excel and from
       Internet Explorer as well as from local html files. The RRP for these products is 9.99 Euros each.
