ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 28, 2001 - Adobe Systems Inc. received the Excellence in Giving Codie Award from the Software & Information Industry Association on March 12, 2001, at SIIA's Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif. The award, cosponsored by SIIA and Gifts In Kind International, the world's leading charity in product philanthropy, recognizes Adobe's philanthropic commitment to communities as demonstrated by its product-giving programs.

Gifts In Kind International President Susan Corrigan presented the award to Adobe. "Adobe does an outstanding job of incorporating the spirit of giving personified by this award into its day-to-day business," said Corrigan. "Adobe's comprehensive giving program, which includes products, cash and employee volunteers, is a true reflection of the company's commitment to the communities in which it does business."

"We're proud that Adobe software plays a role in supporting the important work of so many diverse nonprofit organizations," said Dyanne Compton, Adobe's community relations manager. "We're grateful to Gifts In Kind International for the expertise that has so effectively extended our reach."

SIIA's Codie Awards are recognized as the premier awards for exceptional innovation in the software and information industry. The winner of the Excellence in Giving Codie Award is determined by the following criteria: the product-giving program's impact on a cause or issue; the total dollar value of product contributions as a percentage of pretax profit; and the continuity of the company's product-giving program.

SIIA and Gifts In Kind International enjoy a long-standing partnership, working together to bridge the digital divide in communities around the world through targeted donations of software and information technology.
