THOMSON FINANCIAL SIGNS WEDBUSH MORGAN SECURITIES TO MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR FOUR-YEAR RENEWAL CONTRACT

New York - 9 April 2008

Thomson Financial today announced a multi-million dollar four-year renewal agreement for back office processing with Wedbush Morgan Securities headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, one of the largest private, independent brokerage firms in the nation. Webush Morgan specializes in providing transaction, trading, and clearing services to institutional and private retail clients. They have been ranked #1 Liquidity Provider on NASDAQ since June 2006. Under the new contract, Thomson will continue to provide Wedbush Morgan with a comprehensive solution that supports all of the processing requirements of a self-clearing broker.

“Our decision to renew this contract underscores how much we value Thomson Transaction Services as a partner,” said Jeff Bell, Executive Vice President, Wedbush Morgan Securities. “Leveraging the power of TTS products within our business is an obvious choice. TTS has been a reliable business partner dedicated to our continued growth,” said Bell.

“We are gratified by the continued success of our partnership with Wedbush Morgan, and the decision to extend this long running contract for another four years,” said Gordon Fox, Managing Director, Thomson Transaction Services, Thomson Financial. “We’ve created our systems to be virtually fail-safe and believe that a great product without great support is an empty promise. At TTS, dedicated teams focus on monitoring performance and availability, while our state-of-the-art back-up data centers ensure that the data is always there and always accurate,” said Fox. “Our constant goal is to enhance the performance of our clients in servicing their own clients.”
