("ARGUS"), a subsidiary of Altus Group Limited ("Altus Group") (TSX:AIF) and the leading global provider of software solutions for the commercial real estate industry, today unveiled at an event in London ARGUS Enterprise 10® ("AE 10"), the most robust version yet of its asset and portfolio management platform for the commercial real estate ("CRE") market. Strengthening its focus on European markets, ARGUS adds traditional valuation, a standard used throughout Europe and other countries, to AE 10. This, in addition to existing popular North American standards, makes AE 10 a comprehensive global CRE asset and portfolio management solution.

The AE 10 platform sets a new standard by offering the following benefits:

--  Integrated global platform: using popular global standards, AE10
    integrates budgeting, valuation and asset management in a single
    platform - within a single financial model - allowing for greater
    scalability, data integration, and transparency. Includes proven
    integration with other client infrastructure (Yardi, JDE, MRI, and
--  Enhanced budgeting functionality: improved user experience and ease of
    use for budget tasks at the property and corporate level; enhanced
    integration capabilities for sourcing data from various property
    management and accounting systems 
--  Improved investment visibility and performance: ability to produce
    stronger forecasts and projected returns by creating scenarios based on
    market conditions; support for budgeting and forecasting, reporting,
    sensitivity, and fund level forecasting; faster and more accurate cash
    flow models and valuations

AE 10 delivers a more powerful and improved user experience, including the ability to customize and save preconfigured viewing and sorting capabilities designed to significantly improve user productivity. These along with other enhancements, strengthen AE10 as the solution of choice for everyone from asset and portfolio managers, to investors, lenders, and service providers.

"We use ARGUS Enterprise throughout our business," said Warren Adair, Vice President, Information Technology at Costa Mesa, California-based Donahue Schriber, a real estate investment trust. "It gives us more visibility and control across our entire portfolio and integrates with all of our internal systems allowing us to make better, more informed business decisions."

"Our customers require an integrated platform that connects all strategic elements of asset and portfolio management to deliver improved business performance," said Mike Abramsky, President, ARGUS Software. "ARGUS Software continues to experience a strong adoption of AE around the world. More than 200 clients and 3,000 enterprise users have made AE their choice for CRE asset and portfolio management."

"As an asset management firm, we deal with all aspects of the real estate market," said Andre Halm, partner with Cyclus Property, a Netherlands-based real estate firm. "The improved user experience and robust capabilities make AE 10 a natural choice for our business."

AE 10, with the newly integrated traditional valuation capabilities, is compatible with previous versions of ARGUS Enterprise and now supports ARGUS Valuation-Capitalisation.
