Nordic Financial Systems Becomes a Charter Member of the Citrix Business Alliance(tm)

5 September 2002 - Nordic Financial Systems (NFS), the provider of specialised systems and business process consultancy to many of the world's leading financial organisations, today announced it has become a charter member of the Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS) Citrix Business Alliance(tm) (CBA). As a CBA member, Nordic Financial Systems will work with Citrix to ensure compatibility of its technical and financial services with a server-based computing environment.

"The addition of Nordic Financial Systems to the CBA strengthens our strategy of offering customers the widest possible array of technologies that support a server-based computing environment," said Carsten Thomsen, Regional Manager, Nordic, Citrix Systems. "Working together, we hope to meet customer demand for IT-based financial management tools that can further enhance our offerings."

As a member of the CBA, Nordic Financial Systems can now offer an extended service and solution to its clients. Jackie Chia-Lindahl, Business Development Manager, Nordic Financial Systems, comments, "Nordic Financial Systems offers a variety of services and solutions to its growing list of clients, many of whom are international organisations. By working together with Citrix, we can now offer our customers a new solution, which achieves a more flexible environment. Through the implementation of Citrix, our customers can achieve cost efficiencies since such solutions enable centralised support and administration."

Electrolux was the first organisation with which NFS worked to implement Citrix. Fanny Undén, Vice President, Group Treasury Information Systems, Electrolux, comments, "NFS's competence with Citrix has enabled Electrolux to migrate its treasury management system to a Citrix environment. We will continue to work with Nordic Financial Systems to migrate application by application from local installations to Citrix installations, thereby improving the running and management of different types of information systems support to the group."
