Los Gatos, CA — January 10, 2006—Vhayu, a leader in streaming tick processing and persistence software today announced that Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc., (NYSE: BSC) has selected Vhayu VelocityTM as a fast redundant intraday tick cache for their electronic trading engines.

We are pleased that Bear Stearns has chosen to make our unique patented technology a part of that solution."
