ULLINK to provide DMA to overseas clients of BOCI Securities Limited

Paris and Hong Kong - 12 September 2007

ULLINK, leading provider of connectivity and trading software solutions for the international financial community, today announced that BOCI Securities Limited (“BOCI Sec”), a wholly owned subsidiary of BOC International Holdings Limited (“BOCI”), has selected the UL BRIDGE platform to provide its overseas clients with direct market access to the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (“SEHK”). BOCI is Bank of China’s wholly owned investment banking arm and is one of the leading players in the Hong Kong and China market.

BOCI Sec has selected the ULLINK technology to manage its client connectivity and market access, in an initiative to provide DMA to its foreign clients. The ULLINK low latency ‘ONE PROCESS’ market access technology (UL BRIDGE) allows BOCI’s FIX clients to have direct access to SEHK.

Mr. TSE Yung Hoi, Deputy CEO of BOC International Holdings Limited, says: “We chose ULLINK because its order routing platform adapts to the different flavours of FIX used by our overseas customers. It also offers multiple possibilities of automated message enrichment, together with an embedded pre-trade risk filtering system which is really necessary when offering direct market access. ULLINK’s technology enables us to satisfy an increasing demand from overseas customers, who are looking forward to acting more directly on Asian markets.”

ULLINK solutions come with an extensive library of ready-to-trade connections to favourite destinations, including direct market access to the world’s largest and most active exchanges. Users simply select the destinations they need in the list, and they can start trading within an impressive time frame. “We are very pleased with the trust BOCI has put into ULLINK. As their plan is to grow in the region they will take advantage of the modularity of our technology” says Laurent Useldinger, CEO of ULLINK. “In addition to these solutions, our local team of experts, based in Hong Kong, ensures Asian customers are provided with the high level of service and support they need and expect.”
