IR Global Launches the Talon Service

IR Global launches Talon - A new service powered by FactSet Research Systems Inc. to help companies build and manage their shareholder bases.

IR Global is pleased to announce the launch of Talon, a new service that assists listed companies in managing their relationships with international institutional shareholders more effectively. Companies that subscribe to
Talon benefit from instant online access to its entire global database of listed companies and funds, with sophisticated targeting and search functions enabling them to do infinitely more than merely monitor their own shareholders. Companies planning to list will find the service invaluable for targeting new investors.

The Talon database, which includes information from the LionShares® database licensed from FactSet Research Systems Inc., is a collection of global equity ownership data from more than 4,000 institutions and 24,000 unique mutual fund portfolios. Talon provides both summary and detailed ownership data and can be
drilled down to individual fund manager contact details. Existing products in the market target financial institutions rather than listed companies and are priced accordingly. However, IR Global now provides companies with affordable access to this valuable information.

IR Global was founded in late 2003 by a group of former investment bankers and market data professionals with long experience in senior positions of major global banks and data vendors. The company aims to assist companies large and small to achieve their goals in the field of investor relations in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible.

"Companies know they need to reach out to shareholders more pro-actively than ever before", said IR Global Managing Director Mark Street, "But they have been held back by a lack of information. Talon puts that information - and that means real power - at their fingertips." The Talon service is highly focused on the needs of companies rather than financial institutions.
