SANTA CLARA, Calif (September 25, 2008) –

LiveOps, the virtual call center company, has been named “Company of the Year” for 2008 by the Entrepreneurs Foundation, the San Francisco Bay Area organization, for its commitment to making its Community Service programs integral to the company’s brand and culture. LiveOps is specifically being recognized for its integrated corporate philanthropy model, its donation programs, its social responsibility and its volunteer efforts. The Entrepreneurs Foundation awards the Company of the Year recognition to the organization that, through its activities and partnerships during the previous calendar year, clearly demonstrates its commitment to philanthropic and community involvement programs as part of their core business values.

“LiveOps, while still a young and emerging company, is building a community program on par with many mature companies,” said Diane Solinger, executive director of Entrepreneurs Foundation. “The dedication from corporate leadership through the employees to integrate their community program into all aspects of the corporate brand and culture is demonstrative of their commitment to building a world-class company with world-class values. Entrepreneurs Foundation is honored to be partnered with LiveOps and commends the company for their outstanding community commitment,” Solinger commented.

“We developed the LiveOps Foundation with the goal of supporting community service activities that enhance and serve the cities in which LiveOps employees live and work, as well as the associated issues that impact quality of life,” said Maynard Webb, Chairman and CEO, LiveOps. “We are honored and excited to be recognized by the Entrepreneurs Foundation for our philanthropy and community service efforts and will continue this important effort in 2009 and beyond.”

The company built its LiveOps Foundation on three cornerstones of giving. LiveOps will set aside approximately 1 percent of current outstanding shares to be used to fund the Foundation after a liquidity event. In addition, LiveOps offers gifts of cash supporting grants for organizations that their employees support, grants for philanthropic business partners and a matching gift policy of up to $500 per employee per year. Lastly, LiveOps offers the gift of time by enabling its employees to volunteer on average 1 percent of their time to an organization of their choice, or participate in a company-sponsored event.
