o Gained Co-Sell Status allowing WANdisco Fusion(R) Live Data Platform to be sold as a standard packaged offering with Microsoft Azure (Cloud)

o Three strategic deals with high profile Microsoft customers in banking, semiconductors and retail:

-- Major bank introduces WANdisco Fusion to enable hybrid cloud

-- Semiconductor company unlocks potential of cloud with WANdisco Fusion

   --     Dr. Sakthi Subramanian joins WANdisco as VP of Engineering 

David Richards, Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chairman of WANdisco, commented:

"We are delighted to deepen and broaden our relationship with IBM. We have increased the royalty payable to WANdisco and agreed to joint development that significantly expands our opportunities to leverage the IBM Channel.

In the first half we began the transition toward predictable, annual recurring cloud revenue and away from large and difficult to forecast on-premise transactions. This is an expected and extremely positive evolution for our business. It opens up a significantly larger addressable market in the cloud and will enable us to generate a more predictable- recurring revenue base.

The early traction we are seeing with Microsoft clearly demonstrates that Fusion is the only solution capable of enabling organisations to seamlessly move large volumes of critical data to the cloud, without any downtime or service disruption. Unlike on-premise deals, these cloud deals are initially smaller in revenue terms but are expected to scale materially over time as is common with cloud deployments."

The Company has a robust and strengthening sales pipeline which underpins the Board's continued confidence in achieving full year market expectations.

The Company will announce its first half results on Tuesday 25(th) September.
