TALLASSEE, ALABAMA, [Ocotber 22, 2003] – Neptune Technology Group Inc. (Neptune) announced today that Investcorp, a global investment group, has signed a definitive agreement to sell Neptune to Roper Industries Inc. (Roper), a diversified industrial growth company based in Duluth, Georgia. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and is expected to close by early 2004.

"Roper Industries shares Neptune's vision of being the most valued partner with its customers," says Brian D. Jellison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Roper. "Neptune has built a large and loyal customer base over its long history through market leadership, innovation, outstanding customer service and operational excellence. We believe that Neptune is well positioned for continued growth in the North American water utility market, and we look forward to helping Neptune realize its full market potential."
