UNTERSCHLEISSHEIM and DÃœSSELDORF, Germany and LUCCA, Italy, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Leading German Group in the global marketplace

will implement a driver-based budgeting and planning system

Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance
Management, Disclosure Management, Financial Governance and Business Intelligence, today
announced that the Henkel Group (http://www.henkel.com) has selected Tagetik 4.0 and
Tagetik’s distributor in Germany, Austria and German-Speaking Switzerland, pmOne AG
(http://www.pmone.com), to implement a new enterprise planning system. The software
will optimize the company’s current planning processes, which incorporate approximately
1,000 employees worldwide.

Prior to choosing the software, Henkel designed an innovative, driver-based concept
that will expedite the planning cycle, reduce budgeting granularity and simplify the
process of consolidating results on the group level. Tagetik will serve as the technology
platform to achieve these goals.

“During the selection process, pmOne understood our requirements the best and
successfully implemented them with Tagetik as part of a pilot project,” explains Christoph
Wenner, Corporate Director for Subsidiary Controlling & Corporate Planning at Henkel.
“What impressed us most is that the software can unify the planning and budgeting process
throughout our company while accounting for the individual needs of specific divisions and
departments. In addition, we can use Tagetik to flexibly execute our driver-based concept
and run what-if simulations on various levels.”

“Tagetik’s adaptability and comprehensive standard functionality are two of its
outstanding qualities which have impressed yet another DAX corporation,” adds Hakan
Soykan, Country Manager for Germany & Switzerland at pmOne (
http://www.pmone.de/en/company/management). “As a result, Henkel can replicate its
enterprise planning in a single system and efficiently support the entire process using
the software’s built-in workflow features.”

“This is yet another example of how Tagetik is uniquely able to support large
organizations in managing their complex Performance Management processes,” concludes
Manuel Vellutini – Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik
(http://www.tagetik.com/about/company/management/manuel-vellutini). “The Henkel Group
recognized the value of a powerful solution seasoned with deep domain expertise and
dedication to customer success that Tagetik and pmOne provide.”
