Ipreo's institutional investor contacts to be linked seamlessly to LinkedIn profiles, enhancing connectivity between participants in the financial markets

NEW YORK, May 5, 2011 - Ipreo, a leading global provider of financial services intelligence and
productivity solutions to corporations and investment banks, announced an
agreement with LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network, to provide
seamless access to LinkedIn profiles from Ipreo's BD Suite of investor
prospecting and CRM solutions.

Powered by the industry-leading Bigdough database of institutional
investor contacts and profiles, Ipreo's BD Suite provides capital markets and
investor relations professionals with a complete workflow solution comprised
of global, multi-asset class contact and holdings data, advanced investor
screening tools, and comprehensive contact management capabilities.

As a result of this strategic relationship, clients of Ipreo's BD
products will have direct, one-click access to their LinkedIn network,
including profiles of people and companies, as well as associated relational
information and communications tools. LinkedIn information, such as
connection lists, degrees of separation, and the ability to send a LinkedIn
invitation, will be embedded throughout the BD applications' workflow.

"LinkedIn is one of the core business information and management tools
widely used by our Capital Markets, Research Sales & Trading, and Corporate
Investor Relations clients," said O'Hara Macken, Managing Director of Global
Products & Applications at Ipreo. "By integrating LinkedIn with our BD Suite,
we are furthering our mission of giving our clients seamless access to
critical intelligence throughout their natural workflow."

Integration is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2011.
