Waterloo, ON - January 31, 2003: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSE:MKX), a leading provider of tools to automate, secure, manage and control the software development process, today announced that its enterprise software configuration management solution, MKS Integrity Manager™ and MKS Source Integrity® Enterprise Edition (the MKS Integrity Solution™), has been named a finalist for the Project Management category in the 13th annual Software Development magazine's Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards.

Each year, Software Development magazine honors the development tools that "jolted" the corporate software development industry, in terms of increasing developer productivity, heralding a new development paradigm, or making development faster, easier, and more efficient.

A seasoned team of Software Development editors, expert advisers and columnists reviewed over 700 new products and chose 66 finalists in 11 categories. Winners will be honored at a gala ceremony on March 26, 2003 in Santa Clara, California and in the June 2003 issue of Software Development magazine.

This marks the seventh time MKS products have been nominated for Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards. MKS Toolkit won the coveted Jolt Award in 1993, and was selected for Productivity Awards in 1994 and 1996. MKS Source Integrity was selected for a Productivity Award in 1995. In 2000, MKS's product CodeRover Browser, now within MKS Code Integrity Enterprise, also won a Productivity Award for the first time. The MKS Integrity Solution was called one of the best examples of a high-end workflow-enabled SCM solution in Software Development magazine's article entitled, "Ring of Revision" by Rick Wayne.

"We are thrilled to be in the running yet again for a Jolt award. It's a great honor, and a celebration of our MKS brand, which is built on the foundation of great, innovative technology. We believe our enterprise software configuration management solution offers the most advanced and innovative technology on the market today, and it's wonderful to receive further validation from the developer community," says David Martin, MKS vice president, product management.
