Walter de Gruyter GmbH Selects Atypon Systems, Inc. to Supply 
Content Delivery Platform for Journals, Books, Reference works 
and Databases

BERLIN, Germany and SANTA CLARA, California:  May 22, 2007: 
Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG, an independent Berlin-based 
academic publisher, has entered into an agreement with Atypon 
Systems, Inc., a leading e-publishing solutions provider, to 
develop a platform for the online delivery of all of their

The new agreement builds upon Walter de Gruyter's existing 
technology partnership with Atypon. Walter de Gruyter's adoption 
of the Atypon Premium platform will extend the services they 
offer to libraries, academic societies and end users. One of the 
main enhancements will be the integration of journals, books, 
reference works and bibliographic databases onto a single 
platform, accessible through a common interface.

Chris Beckett, VP of Sales and Marketing of Atypon Systems, 
commented:  'We are delighted to have signed an agreement with 
this major European publisher. Delivering a solution that meets, 
for instance, both the needs of the local German language market 
for historical databases and the international market for English 
language journals and books, while providing a unified content 
management back-office and access control system, is an excellent 
application of the Atypon Premium infrastructure. We look forward 
to providing Walter De Gruyter with a solid return on their 
investment in the Atypon Premium solution.'

Joachim Engelland, responsible for Business Development Online at 
Walter de Gruyter, commented: 'We are excited to extend and 
further develop our partnership with Atypon. Establishing the new 
platform will mean a giant leap for Walter de Gruyter. With
