Company responds to increasing market demand for supply chain solutions to enable greater domestic and global marketplace competitiveness for Chinese businesses


Scottsdale, Ariz. - January 4, 2012 - JDA ® Software Group, Inc.(NASDAQ: JDAS), The Supply Chain Company®, today announced it is expanding its investment in the rapidly maturing China market, further strengthening its business commitments to the region. The renewed investment is in direct response to growing global and regional demand for supply chain solutions from companies across China.  

In 2008, in recognition of Chinese companies' strong interest in advanced supply chain solutions in the manufacturing, distribution and retail industries, JDA announced its expansion in overall China operations. JDA has since quadrupled its China-based headcount, serving more than 50 Chinese companies. Now, JDA is renewing its investment to further reinforce the company's commitment to China as a leading supplier of advanced supply chain optimization and merchandising systems globally. 

"Leading Chinese businesses are focused on improving and modernizing their supply chain management practices in order to compete more effectively in both the domestic and global marketplace," said Stephen McNulty, regional vice president, Asia Pacific, JDA Software. "To that end, we are seeing more and more organizations in China wanting to accelerate their business innovation and growth in areas such as forecasting and replenishment, demand management, supply chain planning, sales and operations management, and factory planning. Chinese businesses understand more than ever that they are not only competing with their domestic competitors, but also with the growing number of American companies moving into the region."

JDA's current portfolio of customers in the region, including Hisense Electric Co., Ltd., Huawei Technologies, and Lenovo Group Limited, have benefited from improving the efficiency of their supply chain operations.

JDA's renewed investment in the region, together with its expanding support, consulting, and sales force, will enable JDA to offer more personalized services to clients in the region. With this expansion, JDA will be able to provide the same level of support available to clients in other regions worldwide.

"We feel we are well positioned to continue our investment and expansion in this region and expect to see continued growth and demand for advanced supply chain solutions in the consumer electronics, retail and automotive industries," said McNulty.

"Today's announcement underscores China's strategic importance to JDA and the growth opportunity within the Chinese market," said Hamish Brewer, president and CEO, JDA Software. "The demand for our solutions over the past few years is driving this increased investment. We look forward to realizing the potential of the China marketplace over the next several years."

JDA first established operations in China in 2006 with the acquisition of Manugistics. The company now has three offices in China, with locations in Beijing, Shanghai, and Taipei. JDA operations in China will be led by McNulty, an industry veteran who has worked in the Asia-Pacific region for more than 15 years. He recently relocated from JDA's Singapore office to support overall China operations from JDA's Shanghai office.

"Our renewed investment in China reflects the growing importance of the country in the global economy," said McNulty. "China's role in the global business arena offers a tremendous opportunity for us to continue introducing the JDA brand to this important region."
