DCT and Microtek International Announce Exclusive Three Year North American Distribution Pact

June 9, 2011 - SANTA CLARA, CA

Document Capture Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DCMT), an IP-driven leader in the design, development, manufacture and sale of advanced imaging technologies for over a decade and Taiwan-based Microtek International, a multi-national designer, developer and manufacturer of proprietary scanner technology, today announced that DCT will be the exclusive North American resource for four of Microtek's leading products.

For the last 20 of its 31-year history, Microtek has been the market share leader (more than 40%) for scanners and image capture technologies in China. The Company holds 161 patents worldwide and has 1500 sales locations as well as 90 service centers in China alone. DCT will immediately begin marketing and selling four of Microtek's products, including those from the ArtixScan family of scanners, in conjunction with its current lines. DCT will also continue to develop next-generation image capture solutions through its ongoing R&D initiatives.

"This partnership with DCT complements our dominance in the Asia market by offering unparalleled exposure of our products in the rapidly growing North American market," said Benny Hsu, Chief Executive Officer of Microtek. "We believe the depth of knowledge, expertise and industry contacts at DCT coupled with our proprietary design and development strength will enable both parties to significantly benefit from this exclusive arrangement."

The agreement with Microtek immediately increases and augments DCT's already industry-leading image capture offerings across a broad range of price points and functionality. While valuable to DCT's impressive and growing OEM and VAR client base, this partnership is expected to result in major revenue opportunities from new clients as well.

"Microtek's impressive product line and technology will meet significant pent-up demand in North America," said David P. Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Document Capture. "This game changing partnership provides exactly the types of products that our clients have been asking for, and means we can satisfy that demand both immediately and on an ongoing basis, particularly as new technologies emerge. The revenue growth potential is of tremendous value to both shareholders and investors."
