RTS Provides connectivity to Mexican Derivatives Exchange

Frankfurt/Mexico City - 25 September 2006

RTS Realtime Systems Group, a leading independent software vendor, and MexDer, the Mexican Derivatives Exchange, today announces the connection to MexDer’s marketplace.

With the new connection to the Mexican Derivatives Exchange (MexDer), RTS is further strengthening its global reach. The increased interest and the region’s continuous growing potential made it a logical step for RTS to develop its first interface for a market place in Latin America.

As a premium derivatives front-end provider RTS already offers high professional solutions to futures and options traders. Additional tools for volatility and hedging transactions including dartboard trading, options pricing, Quote Machine® and integrated Risk/Vola Management make the RTD Realtime Trading Desktop unique.

Steffen Gemünden, Co-CEO and President of RTS comments: “With the connection to MexDer, our first in the region, we are tapping into another very exciting and prosperous market. RTS is very pleased to see the positive developments in the Mexican market and is committed to support MexDer’s domestic and international efforts.”

Jorge Alegria, CEO of MexDer comments: "RTS's connectivity to MexDer opens up new opportunities to their customers who trade the global derivatives markets and should benefit our domestic membership as we aim to incorporate more members to help the liquidity to grow. With the recent opening of our market to remote membership, Mexico offering tax free advantages for foreigners trading MexDer and the development of a FIX interface, we see this as another very positive step forward in our overall strategy."
