Texas Instruments Purchases Rights to Popular Geometry Software Program

Aug 18, 2005

DALLAS - (August 18, 2005) - The Educational & Productivity Solutions (E&PS) business of Texas Instruments today announced it has purchased rights to Cabri® Technology from CabriLog. Cabri® Technology is an interactive dynamic Math program for students in elementary school through college.

"TI is well-known for providing products and services that support student learning in math, and Cabrilog is a market leader in interactive Geometry" said Melendy Lovett, president of TI's EPS business. "This transaction gives us the ability to more deeply integrate the Cabri technology in our handheld devices, thereby enhancing our integrated offering of tools, training and curricular materials."

Under license from TI, Cabrilog will continue to develop and sell Cabri software products for use on personal computers, including Cabri 3D and Cabri® Geometry II Plus.

"We're pleased to join TI in this opportunity," said Jean-Marie Laborde, chairman and chief executive officer of CabriLog. "This enables us to respond to our customer's demand for greater distribution and availability of Cabri® Geometry, which has been growing steadily, and to compliment TI's strengths with our own."

A version of the Cabri® Geometry has been preloaded on TI's graphing calculators for more than 10 years. With the launch of TI's latest graphing calculator family, the TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, with Cabri® Jr. preloaded, the companies saw an increased customer response to geometry applications.

"Our customers told us that preloading Cabri® on our graphing calculators multiplied the impact of our product in the classroom," said Lovett. "Providing greater connectivity between Cabrilog and TI products resulted in a better product for math education and a greater opportunity for both companies to help increase student engagement and performance."
