Newmerix Corp. Secures $7 Million in New Financing


Mobius, Siemens and IDG Back Plan to Launch New Oracle and SAP Product Suites and Expand Domestic and International Sales Channels

Superior, Colo., (January 2, 2007) – Newmerix, the only company providing integrated lifecycle and compliance management solutions for the metadata architectures of enterprise applications, today announced that it has secured $7 million in additional financing to sustain its growth and expand its product suites. Existing capital partners Mobius Venture Capital, Siemens Venture Capital and IDG Ventures Pacific participated in the round.

“Newmerix grew substantially in 2006—more than doubling new customers, expanding product offerings, and driving quarter over quarter and annual financial results,” said Dan Gannon, President and CEO of Newmerix. "We have had tremendous market acceptance of our PeopleSoft suite, as well as our new SAP® products, and great interest in our plans to quickly add Enterprise Application Lifecycle Management offerings for other Oracle applications. We will use the additional capital to expand our sales distribution, build domestic and international sales channels, and extend our suite of products, further enhancing our ability to help companies manage their extensive change and regulatory compliance requirements.”

"Newmerix has an unmatched capability to manage the complex change cycles of enterprise applications by working with their metadata architecture,” said Seth Levine, Principal at Mobius Venture Capital. “This ability has helped them win against the largest competitors in this space time after time. With Oracle and SAP rolling out new products to the marketplace combined with the need to automate compliance requirements, Newmerix is poised for strong growth.”

The Newmerix Automate!™ Suite offers innovative technology that tracks, migrates, tests and controls changes to the enterprise application’s proprietary metadata architecture, whether it’s PeopleSoft’s objects or SAP’s BASIS/ABAP. These proprietary architectures are like the application’s DNA, controlling how it appears and behaves.
