SKOKIE, IL - September 1, 2005 - TFP, formerly Thomson Financial Publishing,
today announces its new name: Accuity. The new name completes the transition
of Accuity and its parent company, SourceMedia, Inc. from The Thomson Corporation.
Jeff Scott, president of Accuity, said that the company's new name represents
a continuing mission and focus.
"Our new name is derived from two of our strongest attributes - Accuracy and
Quality - and conveys our company's continuing mission to be a leading provider of insightful data, software and services that enable organizations to maximize efficiency and facilitate compliance of their transactions," said Scott.
A new logo accompanies the Accuity name and evokes powerful motion and forward-looking perspective - similar to that of SourceMedia. Its colors, blue, black and grey, express strength and reflect the company's 90-year history within the financial sector.
"Our new image is reflective of our customers' trust and a clear indicator that we are a crucial contributor in the industries we serve, delivering information that is fundamental to successful business operations," Scott added.
Accuity has also adopted a new corporate tagline "insightful solutions for sound transactions" which communicates the company's dedication to the vision, quality and accuracy of its products, solutions and services.
