Screen INFOmatch expands its global presence through Screen Australia

Melbourne and Amsterdam - 1 November 2007

Screen INFOmatch, independent experts in market data and providers of market data management solutions, today announced the opening of a representative office in Australia (Screen Australia) as part of its international expansion strategy. A significant increase in demand for professional market data management and a growing INFOmatch sales pipeline necessitated a set up of a regional office.

Wojtek Laskowski will head the Australian operation. Laskowski has great experience in the market data business, dealing with local and international vendors and independently optimising market data provisions for Australian companies.

Peter Fruitema, co-founder and director at Screen, states: “Wojtek is really familiar with the Australian market and has an excellent record in professionally managing market data. Both qualifications are a must to succeed in this market. We are delighted to have Wojtek on board.”

“As INFOmatch is really quite flexible, Screen will be able to immediately leap on to specific requirements for the Australian market,” Laskowski says. “By the end of 2008 we would like to think three to five larger firms will have purchased and installed the system.”

Screen Australia will be responsible for sales and first-line support for INFOmatch in Australia and New Zealand.

The launch of Screen Australia follows recent announcements of further international expansions. Last year, Screen INFOmatch started strategic partnerships with both Axiom Group (US) and DNA Financial Systems Limited (Hong Kong). “Since our establishment, Screen has had an international focus. We have managed to develop a customer base among the most demanding financial institutions", says Peter Fruitema. "The majority of our customers are based in Europe; however we have a worldwide exposure. Now, through Screen Australia, Screen gains all of the elements necessary to continue our global expansion to Australia and New Zealand.”

Screen also has offices in Stockholm, London, Paris, Barcelona, Lugano, Athens, Tunis, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
