MAHWAH, New Jersey and SANTA CLARA, California, August 29 2006, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc. (LEA) and Atypon Systems, Inc. today announced that they will continue their partnership to deliver LEA Online, LEA's online publishing platform, to end users for an additional 5 years, as well as explore additional strategic electronic publishing initiatives that add further value for LEA's customers.

With Atypon as LEA's strategic technology partner, LEA Online will continue to be powered by Atypon Premium, the leading full service electronic publishing platform. Atypon Premium gives LEA complete control over all aspects of its business, from content upload to delivery, and flexible support of business models and outstanding marketing tools allow LEA to increase readership, impact, and revenue.

LEA chose to extend their relationship with Atypon not only because of the robust technology behind Atypon Premium, but also because of the high levels of reliable service that Atypon provides. LEA is particularly keen to continue the close working relationship it has established with its dedicated account and project management support team, and product experts from both companies are already collaborating to maintain LEA's position as a leader in academic publishing.

"I'm very pleased to announce the extension of our relationship with Atypon," said Joseph Petrowski, Executive Vice President, LEA. "We need a technology partner that is focused on the future. Atypon's sophisticated platform and devoted team have allowed us to achieve growth beyond our expectations. We're looking forward to setting the bar even higher and surpassing it again."

"As one of our long-standing clients, I am absolutely delighted that LEA has demonstrated their continued confidence in us in such a significant way," said Martin Marlow, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Atypon. "I'm particularly excited about partnering on the future development of LEA's online presence. LEA is keen to discuss how we can help them and we have dedicated a team ready to do so."
