BETHESDA, Md. -- OPNET Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPNT), the leading provider of predictive network management software, announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets and operations of the Cary, North Carolina-based NetMaker division of Make Systems, Inc., a privately held software company headquartered in San Mateo, California. The acquisition contributes key components to OPNET's product roadmap by broadening the Company's product suite for the service provider market. The purchase price for the transaction, which is expected to close by the end of the month, includes approximately $5 million in cash and up to 675,000 shares of OPNET common stock.

"Design is one of the important components of Predictive Network Management, and we believe that NetMaker's advanced technologies for automated network design are best-in-class," said Alain Cohen, President and CTO of OPNET. "We are very excited about the synergies that this acquisition brings to our product suite, especially our upcoming service provider product, Service Provider Guru. The Make products fit squarely into our strategy of maximizing the value obtained from network resources, reducing the costs and time required to operate networks, and improving service levels."
