Jobpartners' success secures 11 million euros of funding
Third round of funding will help further accelerate U.K. software company's growth

London, 2 June 2008 - Jobpartners PLC, a European leader of solutions dedicated to the Talent Management market, today announced that it has successfully achieved 11 million Euros of funding in its third round since its creation in 2000. During a period of volatile market conditions, this is an impressive amount of funding which demonstrates the investors' confidence in the high demand for effective talent management solutions.

With a growth rate of 35% year-on-year over the past five years, Jobpartners is going from strength to strength. Jobpartners has been recognised in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 U.K. and Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA in 2006 and 2007, ranked in Real Business' Hot 100 list in 2006 and 2007, and in The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 list of 2006 and 2007. The funding has been received from two new investors, CM-CIC Private Capital (CM-CIC) and Société Générale Asset Management Alternative Investments (SGAM AI), as well as existing investors I-Source and Gilde IT.

'The market for talent management is huge as organisations recognise the benefits it brings in terms of maximising talent, and as a result boosting profits,' commented Jerome Crampagne of SGAM AI. 'We have great confidence in Jobpartners' ability to maintain its growth, which is why we have decided to heavily invest in the company. We look forward to a strong relationship with Jobpartners and to taking advantage of a rapidly growing market.'

The funding will be used to accelerate Jobpartners' growth in new regions, and to help the company continue to innovate and develop cutting edge talent management solutions to add to its current portfolio that enables organisations to better attract, develop and retain critical talent.

'Talent management becomes much more important in a competitive market, as having the right people in place and keeping hold of them can mean the difference between success and failure,' commented Xavier Marchioni, CEO of Jobpartners. 'By offering cost-effective solutions that deliver tangible business results to our customers within months, rather than years, is what allows Jobpartners to continue to grow at a remarkable rate. As well as attracting new investors, CM-CIC and SGAM AI, our existing investors, I-Source & Gilde IT, continue to support us. We look forward to working with our investors to achieve our ambitious goals for growth in the future.'

In addition to the funding just achieved, Jobpartners also received 7 million Euros in 2000 and 18 million Euros in 2001. Since 2000, the company has expanded rapidly and now has 120 employees across nine European offices, and just recently restructured as a public limited company. Jobpartners deploys its software in over 50 countries with a client list that includes leading Fortune Global 500 companies such as Carrefour, Nike, Rabobank, Sodexo and Xerox.
