Appointment emphasizes company’s
focus on service business in engineering software development

Novosibirsk, Russia: 17 Oct 2011 – LEDAS Ltd., a leading provider of technology-intensive
services for engineering software companies, announced today the appointment of
Alexey Ershov as its new chief executive officer. Mr Ershov replaces Dmitry
Ushakov, who stepped down to become CEO of the newly established Bricsys
Technologies Russia.  

Alexey Ershov, 32, began
with LEDAS in 1999 as a software developer and quickly progressed to the position
of project manager, and then chief technology officer. In this time, Mr Ershov proved
his abilities by becoming a key software developer, and then project manager
for LEDAS development services, in which CAD/CAM vendors contract their
programming work to LEDAS on a long-term basis.

With the assignment of
Mr. Ershov, LEDAS announced other changes to its management team. See ledas.com/group/team for further details. Mr Ushakov continues as a
member of the board of LEDAS.

“Alexey’s rich
experience in working with different customers on a variety of projects, and
his commitment to helping people succeed professionally, make him the right
executive to lead our company,” said Dmitry Ushakov. “LEDAS is a recognized worldwide
service provider in the field of CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM software development. Over the
last year, I’ve witnessed LEDAS achieving great things, including a significant
growth in revenue that resulted from an increased customer base and selling the
part of business related to component technologies.

“Leaving my current
role to head the newly established Bricsys Technologies Russia,” he continued,
“I look forward to working with the LEDAS team. My plan is to extend the
success of my former company by combining forces with Bricsys, a global
provider of .dwg-based engineering software for 3D modeling.”

“I am confident that Alexey’s
engineering skills and management and business expertise will keep LEDAS on its
successful course of sustained growth,” added David Levin, chairman of the board,
and co-founder of LEDAS. “This business update will enable us to significantly
expand our firm’s leadership in providing high-quality software development
services for vendors of engineering software.”
