Mar 02, 2004

Yavne, Israel - February 24th, 2004, Valor Computerized Systems [Prime Standard: VCR, WKN 928731], the leader in productivity increasing software solutions for the electronics design and manufacturing industry, today announced that the agreement with Denmark-based TraceXpert A/S, the technology-leader in real-time production monitoring, machine-control, and traceability solutions, has now been executed.

This completion of all legal and financial aspects of the agreement, first announced in December 2003, signals that Valor-Denmark is now fully open for business: to deliver the TraceXpert Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to the global electronics industry. The TraceXpert product delivers a comprehensive productivity-maximization, exact traceability and shop-floor parts-management solution that has already been field-proven at dozens of major manufacturing sites worldwide. TraceXpert includes real-time data-rich interfaces to SMT assembly lines from multiple high-end machine vendors such as Siemens, Universal and Fuji, and a major expansion program is to be implemented immediately, to substantially increase the machine-types coverage offered to the market.

Valor-Denmark A/S is a joint venture company, 50% owned by Valor and 50% owned by the shareholders of the predecessor-company, TraceXpert A/S. All intellectual property, management and employees of TraceXpert A/S will be transferred into Valor-Denmark, and Valor Ltd., Israel, will make a $4 million investment into the newly formed business in order to facilitate an immediate ramp-up in the rate of development of the TraceXpert solution. After 3 years of operations, Valor Ltd., Israel, will have first option to purchase all shares in Valor-Denmark.

Ofer Shofman, CEO of Valor, said �I am delighted to be able to announce the completion of the agreement with our partners from TraceXpert. The Valor worldwide organization will take TraceXpert to market immediately, in combination with our Trilogy 5000 product, to deliver an industry-leading design-through-manufacturing solution. During the process of concluding the agreement to form Valor-Denmark, we benchmarked the TraceXpert solution at a number of top-tier manufacturers worldwide, and gathered the clear feedback that we have the winning technology which delivers not only the must comprehensive traceability solution, but also provides substantial improvements in productivity and inventory-management.�

Henning Maerkedahl, co-President of Valor-Denmark together with Kurt Byskov, confirmed �we are very excited about this strategic development in our business. We are looking forward to expanding our business globally, alongside Valor, the established leader in the field of manufacturing simulation and programming for electronics assembly operations.�
