Actuate Implements Plan to Cut Approximately $10 Million in Annual Operating Costs; Actions Create Foundation for Future Profitability.

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Actuate Corporation (Nasdaq:ACTU), the world leader in Enterprise Reporting Applications, today announced that the company has implemented a plan to cut costs across all operations by approximately $10 million annually. The cost savings are expected to have significant benefits starting in the fourth quarter, and are expected to be fully realized in Q1 2005.

"Following our preliminary third quarter results, we immediately implemented a cost reduction plan designed to return the company to profitability within one quarter," said Dan Gaudreau, CFO and senior VP of Finance and Administration at Actuate Corporation. "In addition, these cost cuts will not impact any strategic initiatives that are essential to our long-term success."

Third quarter results are still preliminary, pending the completion of Actuate's established quarterly financial review process. Actuate will announce its final third quarter 2004 results in a press release and conference call on Thursday, October 28, 2004. Access information for that call will be provided in a separate press release.
