Celartem Inc. Announces New Structure of US Holdings

PORTLAND, Ore. and SEATTLE, Wash.,- July 3, 2006 – Celartem Inc., today announced Carlos Domingo has transitioned from his role as President and CEO to Chairman of the Board of Directors effective immediately. Software brands, LizardTech and Extensis have operated as divisions of Celartem Inc. under Domingo’s direction since 2003 and 2005 respectively. The title and responsibility change for Domingo enables him to return to his native country of Spain while continuing his involvement in the company’s overall direction.

Brian Berson has assumed the role of general manager for Extensis while Jim White has taken over as general manager for LizardTech. Berson has been an executive member of the Extensis team for the past three years. He joined Extensis when the font management software company he founded – DiamondSoft – was acquired by Extensis in 2003. Jim White has been with LizardTech for the past eight years as VP of Product Research and Development. Prior to joining LizardTech, White was a team leader of an image processing group at the Los Alamos Laboratories where MrSID® technology was invented.

“As I leave my day-to-day position to chair the Board of Directors, I am confident both companies are in good hands. The restructuring of the organization will better suit the needs of each business unit while maintaining the benefits of a collective finance and operations department,” said Carlos Domingo. “I am proud of the work that we’ve done collectively to strengthen the overall business model and establish new business partners during my time as CEO.”

Additionally, Celartem Inc. has hired Nahhe Nomie to serve as Chief Financial Officer. Nomie’s duties include overseeing finance and operations for both Extensis and LizardTech brands. Nomie has more than 12 years of experience in the financial market most recently working for DecisionPoint Software and Price Waterhouse LLC.
