NEW YORK, February 12, 2001 – TreasuryConnect LLC, the Internet’s leading trade communication and execution platform for OTC derivatives, and FNX Ltd. ("FNX"), a leading provider of trading desk, straight-through processing and Internet management solutions to the global capital markets, have formed a co-marketing alliance, the companies announced today.

The agreement calls for FNX’s global sales force to distribute TreasuryConnect’s private label online trading systems to derivatives dealers worldwide. TreasuryConnect, which last May launched the Internet’s first trade communication and execution platform for interest rate and currency derivatives, announced in December that it has begun developing proprietary trading sites for derivatives dealers based on its technology.

"The TreasuryConnect system will enable us to provide a complete end-to-end processing solution running from a bank customer’s desktop to the bank’s back office systems," said David Boldon, FNX Senior Managing Director of Sales and Marketing. "In combination with our front, middle and back office systems, it gives FNX a fully integrated product that offers a straight-through processing solution for communication between a bank and its institutional customers.

"TreasuryConnect will add valuable cross product functionality to our Internet solutions," Vicki Zesses, FNX Managing Director, Americas, commented. "The decision to partner with TreasuryConnect is further proof of FNX’s commitment to the ongoing expansion of Sierra Systems Internet capabilities."

"Having FNX distribute our systems will greatly augment our own marketing efforts," said Bruce Usher, TreasuryConnect Chief Executive Officer. "FNX’ products and sales force are held in high regard throughout the global capital markets, and their decision to represent us is a strong vote of confidence for our technology."
