ICAP Utilizes Orc Software’s CameronFIX and CameronFAST to Support FX Trading over FIX Protocol

Chicago / New York - 26 September 2007

Orc Software (SSE: ORC), the leading global provider of technology for advanced derivatives trading and connectivity, today announced ICAP, the world’s premier interdealer broker, is utilizing Orc Software’s CameronFIX and CameronFAST solutions for its foreign exchange (FX) trading capabilities.

ICAP, which has a long history in FX and operates the leading FX trading platform EBS, is using Orc’s CameronFIX Universal Server for its advanced FX order flow and connectivity, and Orc’s CameronFAST solution for high performance market data distribution using the FAST protocol. Orc Software finalized and booked the deal with ICAP in Q3 2006, for production go-live later in 2006.

“CameronFIX is helping us deliver to our customers a superior FIX solution for FX trading that provides extremely low latency,” notes John Schoen, Regional Product Manager - Americas at ICAP. “In addition, CameronFAST gives us the ability to stream FX market data over a FIX session.”

“ICAP is a valued customer and we are delighted that they are using the CameronFIX Universal Server and CameronFAST for their requirements,” said George Wishart, Sales Director for Orc Software. “Orc, as an active global member of the FIX Protocol organization, is committed to the expansion of FIX. FAST is an excellent example of the FIX community working together to improve the protocol for all users. Orc will continue as a leader in support of these standards.”

The FIX Protocol Limited (FPL) has further enhanced support for FX trading with the release of FIX 5.0 in January 2007. In addition, the FPL’s new FAST compression provides support for high volume streaming data, such as market data.

CameronFIX is the globally proven FIX connectivity solution used by leading financial institutions and exchanges worldwide. The CameronFIX Market Data Server enables the streamlining of multiple market data vendor feeds converted to the single FIX format.
