EDGAR Online and Zephyr Financial Forge Strategic Alliance

11 December 2008

EDGAR® Online, Inc. (Nasdaq: EDGR) and Zephyr Financial Intelligence today announced a strategic alliance that will bring a suite of XBRL 2.0 analytical tools to market. Through this relationship, Zephyr will design, build and deliver a full range of custom analytical tools powered by EDGAR Online’s robust database housing over 10 years of financial statement data in XBRL format from 12,000+ companies.

“EDGAR Online’s unparalleled XBRL data and Web-based platform enables us to build state of the art solutions for our clients,” said Bryan Feinberg, CEO of Zephyr. “XBRL is actually an enabling technology for all investors – from the person who dabbles in the capital markets through their 401K plan to the analyst who works at the equities desk for an institutional investment company. XBRL allows users to slice and dice data as they choose and holds the potential to unleash new views of risks and opportunities to the user.”

“We’re excited by Zephyr’s keen understanding of analytics and their flexible delivery platform, Zephyrnet, as a scalable solution for investors of all types,” said Sue Childs, Chief Marketing Officer, EDGAR Online. “With the data that EDGAR Online offers, there really are no limits to the types of applications that can be powered by XBRL. We’ve remained platform agnostic by offering our XBRL data to anyone offering a quality application to the market. Zephyr has developed a new generation of financial intelligence and is sure to be a rising star.”
