La Jolla, CA, USA – OCTOBER 6, 2008 — 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 has been selected as a finalist for the 15th Annual AeA High Tech Awards in the highly competitive “Software” category. MadCap will be recognized along with other finalists when the AeA San Diego Council announces its award winners on October 31, 2008.

The San Diego AeA High Tech Awards recognize outstanding local technology companies for their achievements in technological innovation, operational accomplishment, and community contribution. AeA cited MadCap Software’s native XML documentation family, which offers unprecedented integration to provide a complete content workflow; the company’s ability to double in size while centering its engineering and support teams in La Jolla, CA; and MadCap’s campaign to donate funds to the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH).

“MadCap’s strong growth and profitability, coupled with its innovative NOAHH fundraiser, demonstrate why MadCap Software is a model finalist for the AeA High Tech Awards,” said Kevin Carroll, executive director, AeA San Diego Council. “Not only has MadCap tapped the deep bench of talent in San Diego County to build a world-class engineering team and deliver ground-breaking advances in documentation software; it also is showing how companies can give back to customers and the community with fund-raising product promotions that benefit everyone.”

“Customers and community are at the center of our founding principals, so it is a great honor to be recognized as a 2008 AeA High Tech Award finalist for our success in building a company based on these important values,” said Bjorn Backlund, MadCap co-founder and CTO. “By listening to our customers and continuing to grow our locally based team of content experts, we have been able to expand from our flagship product, Flare, to a comprehensive documentation family supporting a complete content workflow. Thousands of companies—from start-ups to the Global 1000—have responded by choosing our groundbreaking solutions and support as the best in the industry.”

Backlund added, “It was very rewarding to run a product promotion with NOAHH to mutually benefit documentation professionals and the many New Orleans neighborhoods being revitalized through NOAHH’s efforts. It is an example of how helping customers can help the community, too.”

The AeA San Diego Council, the regional part of the nation’s largest high-tech trade association, will hold the AeA 15th Annual High Tech Awards luncheon on October 31, 2008 from 11:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Hilton Torrey Pines, La Jolla.
