Investment Also Advances Development of Bullhorn's Front Office and
Workforce and Revenue Cloud Solutions

the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting
organizations transform their businesses, today announced that it has
acquired Talent Rover and Jobscience, two of the leading providers of
recruitment software built on the Salesforce platform. Terms of the
transaction will not be disclosed. Following Bullhorn's recent
acquisition of the Salesforce-powered Connexys to serve customers in
Europe, Talent Rover and Jobscience will help Bullhorn further its
investments to serve those companies that have made a commitment to the
Salesforce ecosystem in North America and the rest of the world.
Furthermore, the additional resources afforded by Connexys, Talent
Rover, and Jobscience will allow Bullhorn to accelerate the development
and innovation of front and middle office capabilities for the world's
leading staffing and recruiting firms.

As many global enterprise staffing and recruiting firms look to rapidly
scale their operations while also adapting to changing candidate
preferences and evolving customer needs, they're faced with
unprecedented challenges in advancing their candidate-to-cash business
processes. To support customers in navigating through this complex
environment, Bullhorn has always offered an open ecosystem approach,
evidenced by the largest staffing-centric Marketplace with more than 100
pre-integrated partners. Now, with a full range of Salesforce offerings
in addition to Bullhorn's award-winning platform, the company expands
the choice of customer options for improving business operations.
Bullhorn will continue to support and advance all three
Salesforce-powered applications - Talent Rover, Jobscience, and Connexys
- and, over time, Bullhorn will deliver new and expanded capabilities as
part of the company's Salesforce offerings, including best-of-breed VMS
integration and middle office solutions.

"Our experience with Connexys has demonstrated that we have an
incredible opportunity to partner with Salesforce as we look to serve
companies embracing the Salesforce platform and ecosystem," said Art
Papas, Bullhorn's founder and CEO. "With these acquisitions, we are
further expanding our long-standing commitment to an open ecosystem, and
the additions of Talent Rover and Jobscience to the Bullhorn family will
allow us to continue to deliver solutions that best fit our customers'
needs, whether deployed on the Salesforce or the Bullhorn platform."

"Furthermore, we're making a major investment to deliver the most
advanced recruitment and staffing software solutions in the market to
our global enterprise customers," Papas added. "Talent Rover and
Jobscience have built fantastic businesses, and we're looking forward to
working with them to deliver leading-edge solutions to meet the evolving
business needs of the enterprise."

"We're excited to work with Bullhorn and Salesforce to deliver a unique
offering that enables our branch offices worldwide to engage more fully
with candidates and clients," said Rob James, chief information officer
of Adecco. "Further, as we look to the future, we believe there's a big
opportunity for innovation on the platform, which will transform the way
we serve our customers and better support the candidate journey."
