As of August 27, 2012, Pegasystems Inc. (the "Company") and Lawrence Weber entered into a Director Indemnification Agreement (the "Director Indemnification Agreement"), pursuant to which the Company has agreed to indemnify Mr. Weber against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of his status or service as a director of the Company, and to advance him the expenses incurred as a result of a proceeding as to which he may be indemnified. The Director Indemnification Agreement is intended to provide rights of indemnification to the fullest extent permitted under the Massachusetts Business Corporation Act and is in addition to any other rights Mr. Weber may have under the Company's Articles of Organization, its By-laws and applicable law. The Director Indemnification Agreement also requires the Company to maintain directors' and officers' liability insurance with respect to Mr. Weber for so long as he continues to serve as a director of the Company and for six years thereafter.

The foregoing summary description of the Director Indemnification Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 99.1 filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K.

(d) Effective August 27, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") appointed Lawrence Weber as a member of the Board. Mr. Weber's term will expire at the next annual meeting of the Company's stockholders at which time it is expected that he will be nominated for election.

Mr. Weber is an entrepreneur and well-known global expert in the areas of public relations and marketing. Over his thirty year career, Mr. Weber has counseled many of the world's leading brands on marketing and business strategy.

Mr. Weber, 57, has served as the Chairman of the Board of W2 Group, Inc., a marketing services ecosystem organized to help chief marketing officers in their role as builders of communities and content aggregators, since he founded the company in September 2004. He is also a Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange (MITX), the largest interactive advocacy organization in the world, and serves on a number of other boards of corporations, non-profit groups, and academic institutions. Mr. Weber also served as a member of the Board of Directors of Vertro, Inc., an online advertising and search company, from June 2005 to March 2012 and as its Chairman from April 2006 to March 2012.

Mr. Weber will receive an initial award of restricted stock units in consideration of his appointment to the Board, valued at $75,000 based on the fair market value of the Company's Common Stock on the grant date of August 27, 2012, which will vest in three equal annual installments.
