Paris, France – November 22, 2007 – InfoVista (Euronext IFV - FR0004031649), the leading service-centric performance management software vendor, today announced that it has finalized the acquisition of France-based, privately held Accellent, whose application-centric network monitoring solutions are used by large international organizations to ensure the delivery of mission-critical and revenue-generating services.

Alain Tingaud, InfoVista CEO, commented on the completion of the Accellent acquisition: “We are pleased to welcome Accellent on board and look forward to offering our customers an extended solution.

According to Marquis, when integrated and available as a unified product, the combination of InfoVista and Accellent will allow:

* Detection of performance issues with end-user applications or services
