Blackbaud Announces CEO Transition Plan

Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the leading provider of software and services for nonprofit organizations, today announced that after a seven-year tenure, Marc Chardon will step down as the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer and a director at the end of 2013, or earlier if a successor is named. This decision was made jointly by the Board and Mr. Chardon as part of the Company’s business and succession planning efforts. Following his departure, Mr. Chardon intends to pursue business interests advising and investing in technology start-ups and devote more time to the philanthropic community.

The Blackbaud Board will initiate a search process and retain a leading executive search firm to identify the next President and CEO. The search process will include a full review of internal and external candidates. Mr. Chardon will work with the Board to help identify his successor.

“It has been an honor to serve as Blackbaud's President and CEO for the past seven years, and to work with the finest employees and management team in the industry,” said Mr. Chardon. “Now is the right time to select a new leader for the next phase of the Company’s development and growth. I will work with the Board to help identify the best possible candidate to serve as Blackbaud’s next President and CEO and to ensure that this transition is seamless for all of our stakeholders. I am confident that, when the time comes, I will leave the Company in excellent hands with a strong team that will continue to succeed and build on the important progress we have made.”

“Blackbaud’s Board is committed to conducting a thorough and comprehensive search to identify the best candidate to serve as our next President and CEO,” said Andrew Leitch, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “On behalf of the Board and everyone at Blackbaud, I thank Marc for his leadership, commitment and contributions to our Company. He has successfully led the Company through a significant transformation as we sought to expand the markets we serve and range of solutions we offer. During his tenure over the last seven years, we have nearly tripled our revenues. Marc has been a valuable member of the Blackbaud Board and leadership team and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Preliminary Fourth Quarter Results

The Company also announced today that it expects to report for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 total non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP EBIT that are within or above the Company’s previously released guidance ranges of $119 million to $121 million for non-GAAP revenue and $19 million to $20 million for non-GAAP EBIT.

“We are pleased by our fourth quarter results, which reflect credible performance from each of the business units as well as early signs of acceleration in the opportunity pipeline for legacy Convio products,” said Mr. Chardon. “While we anticipate continued macroeconomic headwinds, we remain confident in our business strategy and believe that we are well-positioned to drive growth and build long-term shareholder value.”

Blackbaud will report its fourth quarter and full year 2012 financial results before the U.S. financial markets open on Wednesday, February 13, 2013. In conjunction with this announcement, Blackbaud will host a conference call on February 13, 2013, at 8:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) to discuss the Company's financial results.
