Exegy Ticker Plant 2.0 Introduces First Hardware-Accelerated Ticker Plant for Order Book Data

St. Louis, MO - 12 September 2007

Exegy, the innovative technology company, announced today that it is providing market data users with the first ever hardware-accelerated ticker plant that addresses order book and market depth data.

With this fall’s introduction of Exegy Ticker Plant 2.0, Exegy is offering

• level II functionality, which allows fast analysis of order books and market depth

• access to North American and European exchange data

• an add-on framework that allows customizable analytics, including a sophisticated arbitrage calculator

This latest update to the Exegy Ticker Plant also consolidates exchange market data into a virtual order book allowing customers to focus on all relevant orders side by side or arrange the orders into a price-aggregated view.

And now that the Exegy Ticker Plant 2.0 includes level 2 feed handlers, customers will be able to analyze market data from ARCA (NYSE OrderBook), NYSE OpenBook, Toronto (OrderBook), NASDAQ Totalview, Euronext level 2 and Frankfurt/Xetra level 2 in a single Exegy appliance with under 100 microseconds of latency.

To make the Exegy Ticker Plant 2.0 even more attractive to those who want a competitive advantage, Exegy has built the new ticker plant with an add-on framework that supports optional modules such as index arbitrage calculations and options analytics – all without impacting performance.

“Customers were asking for exactly this – a hardware-accelerated system that could deliver market-leading speed and throughput with the ability to add custom functionality in a single appliance,” says Scott Parsons, Exegy’s chief scientist and architect. “So our team responded quickly.”

Parsons noted that Exegy’s technology is built in-house with a dedicated team committed to deploying the latest technologies to create market -leading solutions for our customers.

“Our team is focused on staying ahead of the technology curve, responding to our customers’ needs so our customers can maintain their competitive advantage,” says Exegy Chairman Jim O’Donnell. “We hire the best, and they continue to deliver the best Ticker Plant out there.”
