Lumesis and Ipreo Announce Partnership to Deliver Time-of-Trade Disclosure Solution

DIVER Advisor Municipal Bond Reports Now Available via Ipreo Bookrunning

Stamford, CT – March 30, 2015 – Lumesis Inc., a leading provider of data, business efficiency and regulatory compliance solutions for the municipal market has announced a strategic partnership with Ipreo, a leading global provider of workflow solutions and market intelligence to financial services and corporate professionals. The two companies will now offer direct access to DIVER Advisor Municipal Bond Reports directly from Ipreo’s Bookrunning system.

“This partnership brings a solution for time-of-trade disclosure regulations directly into the Ipreo new issue workflow,” said Gregg L. Bienstock, Esq., CEO and Co-Founder of Lumesis. “Delivery of the Official Statement does not address disclosure obligations so Ipreo users will benefit from the simplicity of accessing our comprehensive muni bond reports for new issue compliance.”

The DIVER Advisor Municipal Bond Reports are the only solution to efficiently address the MSRB Time-of-Trade Disclosure Rule (G-47), amended Suitability Rule (G-19) and Supervisory requirements (G-27). The reports are comprehensive, CUSIP-driven municipal bond overviews for over 1.1 million bonds. A subscription to DIVER Advisor is available immediately through the Ipreo and Lumesis sales teams.

“Streamlining our clients’ workflow through the integration of data and software is the core premise of our solutions,” said Allen Williams, EVP & Managing Director, Global Fixed Income Capital Markets at Ipreo. “Having the DIVER Advisor reports directly available from our bookrunning application enhances our clients’ compliance efforts in keeping with new regulations.”
