Concept Engineering Expands European Operation to Sustain Growth in Schematic Generation and Viewing Market Segment

European headquarters relocates to larger premises

Freiburg, Germany - May 29, 2000 - Concept Engineering today announced the expansion and relocation of company headquarters in Freiburg, Germany. The new offices more than double the previous capacity in order to house the growing development, support and operations staff.

"This is an exciting time for Concept Engineering", said Gerhard Angst, president and CEO of Concept Engineering. "The development of our product portfolio and the strategic partnerships we have announced during past year marks clear steps in our strategic business plan to achieve and maintain leadership. By expanding our office, Concept Engineering is positioning itself as a solid business partner for our customers and to meet the demands of our continuous growth".

Testimony to Concept's healthy growth is the company's recent alliance with Actel Corporation (Nasdaq: ACTL), a leader in the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) market. The Actel adoption of Concept Engineering's NLviewMFC Widget and the product's successful launch signify the importance of schematic generation and viewing technology and tools for original equipment EDA tool manufacturers (OEMs), in-house CAD tool developers and semiconductor companies.
