SINGAPORE, July 13 --

- Investment Bank Implements Core Banking Module in Asia

SAGE, the rising publisher of banking solutions, is pleased to announce that a
large international financial firm has gone live with Prospero’s core
banking module for its Asia branches. The client is one of the leading
investment banks in the world with a significant share of the Asian wealth
management market.

SAGE’s Prospero core banking solution provides the client with the
platform for accounting and booking security trades, cash, and security
transfers. Prospero included the complex posting of the Singapore ACU/DBU, GST
reporting and real-time interface with the client’s trading systems.

This is the first implementation of Prospero in Asia and confirms the presence
and commitment of SAGE in this region. Singapore has now become the most
important hub for SAGE after Switzerland to serve and support its clients in

cost-efficient brokerage services to its customers. Prospero also assisted our
client in drastically reducing the overall costs of its brokerage operations by
streamlining their processes.
