Solium Acquires 10b5-1 Business of Computershare

08:00 EDT Thursday, April 18, 2013

CALGARY, April 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Solium Capital Inc. ("Solium") (TSX: SUM), the leading global provider of software as a service for equity administration, financial reporting and compliance, today announced that it will acquire the RSSOne product from Computershare Inc. ("Computershare"), which consists of a suite of services for Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 144 management, and the technology used to provide such services.

"With this acquisition, Solium gains a significant amount of technology and intellectual capital in the Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 144 management area, and in the venture capital processing space," said Mike Broadfoot, Chief Executive Officer and a Managing Director of Solium. "We also gain the opportunity to serve clients who leverage this technology as part of their executive service offerings, further expanding our relationships with the brokerage community and the solutions we are able to provide to them."

The RSSOne suite of services automates the administration of Rule 10b5-1 plans and the management of Rule 144 processing (insider trading compliance). This tool also provides an automated process for the distribution of capital to investors.

RSSOne provides a strong functional complement to Solium's Shareworks™ platform, which further integrates and automates the services that are provided to Solium's clients and partners, while significantly reducing the inherit risks that come from manual processing.

The transaction is expected to close April 30, 2013. The completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions.
