Acquire Media Inks Agreement with London Stock Exchange’s Regulatory News Service

15 January 2009

Acquire Media, a premier digital content provider serving the financial services and corporate arenas, today announced that it has signed an agreement with the London Stock Exchange’s Regulatory News Service (RNS) to deliver critical information to traders and other financial executives.

Acquire Media’s latest announcement comes just one week after it announced plans to distribute news from Dow Jones Newswires to financial executives in Europe, enabling them to benefit from critical economic and financial news rapidly and efficiently.
Under the most recent agreement with London Stock Exchange, Acquire Media will include RNS content as part of its standard content set for trading solutions in Europe. The news will be delivered from Acquire Media’s new data center in the UK, which opened last month.

Toby Cook, vice president of the Europe, Middle East and Africa markets for Acquire Media, said the agreement blends RNS’ valuable content with Acquire Media’s rich technology delivery system.

“The combination of RNS content and Acquire Media’s state-of-the-art technology delivered from our UK data center means that European customers now have a real alternative when sourcing news for traders and financial analysts,” he said.

RNS is the company news service from the London Stock Exchange. With more experience of filing regulatory announcements than any other organization, RNS is the UK’s leading primary information provider, responsible for distributing several hundred company announcements every day.

Acquire Media, which purchased NewsEdge in July 2007 from The Thomson Corp., has boosted revenues significantly during the past year. Since the acquisition, Acquire Media has invested heavily in re-engineering the NewsEdge product line to augment Acquire Media’s foothold in the real-time scrolling news space and re-establish a dominant standing in the corporate/web site market, both under the NewsEdge brand.
