GlobeNewswire - Mon Dec 4, 2023

REGINA, Saskatchewan, Dec. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Information Services Corporation (TSX:ISV) (“ISC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Bank of Canada has selected the Company as operator and technology solutions provider for the Bank Act Security Registry (the “Registry”), which enables security interests to be registered under section 427 of the Bank Act across Canada.

This opportunity expands the Company’s Registry Operations segment, which will be responsible for the service delivery of the Registry, with the development and implementation of the critical technology solution being provided by ISC’s Technology Solutions segment. Once implementation is complete, the Bank Act Security Registry will be capable of 24/7/365 service provision and a range of online submission and search capabilities for customers. The Company expects to commence operating the Registry in Summer 2024.  

“ISC is proud to provide services to the Bank of Canada on this important project,” says ISC President and CEO Shawn Peters. “This five-year contract is a testament to ISC’s expertise in modernizing, streamlining and operating complex registry systems. We are pleased to embark on this initiative, and excited about the continued growth for ISC and its Technology Solutions and Registry Operations segments.”

ISC’s opportunity to operate the Bank Act Security Registry builds on recent momentum for our RegSys technology platform, including the recent announcement of our implementation contract for the State of Michigan, as well as other recent contracts with Cyprus, Jersey and the States of Guernsey.
