Business Wire

LONDON & NEW YORK -- November 21, 2012

Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS) and Caplin Systems Ltd. have
today announced they are partnering to provide a fully-integrated, end-to-end
FX e-commerce solution for Jyske Bank, one of Denmark’s largest banks.

The solution replaces Jyske’s existing white label e-commerce solution and
extends Jyske’s current deployment of the Progress® Apama® Capital Markets
Platform for FX liquidity aggregation and smart order routing. Expected to go
live in the second half of 2013, the solution will initially support some 200
institutional traders and will be rolled out to Jyske’s retail clients in due
course.

By overhauling its eFX solution with this new single dealer platform Jyske
Bank will provide an exceptional trading experience for its institutional
clients across FX spot, forwards and swaps. The bank has selected Caplin
Trader, an HTML5 front end that runs on the Caplin Platform, for end-user
delivery. The Caplin solution will seamlessly integrate with Progress
Software’s Apama Capital Markets Platform to provide a bird’s eye view of
aggregated FX markets in real-time and perform smart order routing, real-time
pricing of spot and derivatives, auto-hedging and more.

  *Jyske Bank’s Head of Department – FX, Interest rates & Commodities, Lene
    Papsoe, explained the reason behind the move: “We see our eFX offering as
    strategically important to the growth of our business. Our new platform
    will mark us out as a market leader in the rapidly growing online trading
    market.”
  *“Progress Software’s Apama solution is already powering our online pricing
    engine and, having evaluated several web delivery technologies, we decided
    Caplin was the perfect fit for this project,” continued Lene Papsoe. “Both
    technologies combined provide a sophisticated framework allowing us to
    differentiate ourselves in the market and on board multiple asset classes
    as our business evolves. That this solution will work just as well on
    mobile platforms, and so future-proofs the business, was also a deciding
    factor for us.”
  *On the deployment Dr. Richard Bentley, Vice President, Capital Markets at
    Progress Software said, “Partnering with Caplin to deliver this solution
    is a natural choice for us, as we both attract customers with very similar
    profiles – banks that require proven technology, but want the freedom to
    tailor their solution to support their brand and to scale as their
    business grows. We expect this venture with Jyske Bank to be the first of
    many.”
  *Paul Caplin, CEO, Caplin Systems summed up, “Jyske Bank is a
    forward-looking organization with a big focus on client relationships, and
    it is now looking to extend its outstanding client service into e-trading.
    By picking two highly compatible and best in class technologies Jyske Bank
    is effectively leapfrogging its peers to provide a next-generation trading
    service.”
