TOKYO and BENSHEIM, Germany, March 17, 2010 - TONBELLER, a leading provider of financial crime prevention solutions,
has announced a successful implementation of its flagship product Siron(R)AML
at The Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. (BTMU) offices outside of Japan.
Siron(R)AML forms the backbone of BTMU's strategy to fight anti-money
laundering (AML), protect the organization from reputational damage and to
comply with the increasing national and international regulations.

"We chose TONBELLER's Siron(R)AML for the proven track record it has with
some of the world's largest and most-respected financial services firms.
Anti-Money Laundering has become a top-priority for the Bank of
Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ over the last few years. We needed a service provider
who could provide the skills, experience, and tools to help our organization
derive the maximum value from our financial crime prevention investments,"
says Shoji Horie, Senior Manager of Global Compliance Division at BTMU.

According to Shoji Horie, "With Siron(R)AML in place, we expect the
transaction monitoring process to be more customizable, efficient and
accurate. The easy-to-use yet comprehensive risk-based approach of
Siron(R)AML compliments earlier processes at BTMU to provide greater
compliance regarding anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing.
One of the main benefits of the anti-money laundering solution from TONBELLER
is an user-friendly interface for quick and easy generation or maintenance of
research scenarios, which can be easily handled by the AML/compliance
officers themselves. This helps BTMU to reduce false-positives without
spending additional expenses for external consultancy in order to adjust the

TONBELLER's experienced consultants rapidly developed and delivered the
solution from project initiation to "go-live" implementation for each of Bank
of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ offices in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France,
Germany, Spain, The Netherlands and UK. "The team was extremely professional
and had unrivalled expertise in fulfilling global regulatory requirements.
The close collaboration between Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and TONBELLER
has been mutually beneficial at many levels," says Shoji Horie.

"Only the high commitment of each local office, the excellent interaction
between all key players and the high management attention from the
headquarter of Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ could guarantee such a success,"
explains Torsten Mayer, member of the board at TONBELLER AG. He adds, "our
ultimate goal is to create a positive, long-lasting relationship with our
customers which is build up on the success of both companies. That is what we
have achieved together with Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ."
