San Diego, CA, USA – October 16, 2007 — MadCap Software, the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio 2005 and Microsoft XPS, today announced that it is partnering with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) on a special fund-raising promotion for attendees of LavaCon being held October 27-30, in New Orleans, LA.

For every attendee’s purchase of MadCap MadPak, the ultimate authoring suite, MadCap will donate $100 to NOAHH, supporting its continued efforts to rebuild New Orleans in the wake of Katrina. The promotion is part of MadCap’s ongoing commitment to give back to the communities where its customers work. LavaCon attendees also benefit from the exclusive offer, saving $417 off the regular MadPak price.

“We aim to improve the day-to-day experiences of, not only the technical communications community that we serve, but also the broader communities in which our customers work and live,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap Software CEO. “We are honored to partner with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity in providing an exclusive offer that mutually benefits technical communications attendees at LavaCon and the many New Orleans neighborhoods being revitalized through the efforts of NOAHH.”

“We are gearing up for an unprecedented rebuilding effort that will repopulate some of New Orleans’ hardest hit neighborhoods with hundreds of new homes,” said Rob Saer, chair of the NOAHH resource and development committee. “MadCap is a valued partner in this initiative. Its creative promotion provides strong motivation for LavaCon attendees to contribute to the rebuilding of our city and shines a spotlight on how companies can have a meaningful impact on our community.”

Olivier added, “We look forward to other LavaCon exhibitors joining us in helping NOAHH to realize its goals for restoring one of the United States’ most beloved cities.”
