                                 Transactions

USForex, one of the world’s fastest-growing, technology-driven foreign
exchange providers, today announced the launch of the company’s customized
exchange platform for the U.S. market. The platform allows clients of
financial institutions to seamlessly make international foreign payments and
money transfers on USForex’s advanced online payments system. USForex is a
subsidiary of Sydney-based OzForex Group.

Travelex, ING Direct, and Macquarie Private Wealth have all been early
adopters of the OZForex Group’s exchange platforms in foreign markets. The
platform powers their account-to-account foreign exchange payments service
which allows their clients to seamlessly make international foreign payments
and money transfers on OZForex’s advanced online payments systems.

Building upon OZforex’s platform, USForex’s customized online foreign exchange
payments service provides clients with around-the-clock customer service
supported by a mobile trading site. It also provides iPhone and Android mobile
applications that enable customers to check rates, access market commentary
and log into the mobile trading site.

“Our current success in incorporating OZforex’s platform for our clients
provided us with the necessary proof points to expand our service in North
America,” said Eric Schimpf, head of Macquarie Private Wealth. “USForex serves
as a valuable conduit to new and existing clients in North America and we are
excited to work alongside them and the Ozforex team.”

“We’re pleased to partner with leading financial institutions to power their
online foreign exchange payment services as we continue to expand our presence
in the U.S. market,” said Michael Ward, CEO, North America and Europe for
USForex. “The launch of the platform and these strategic partnerships cap a
strong year of growth and international expansion for us and the Ozforex
Group. The strong initial feedback we have received from our clients further
validates the power of our payments platform, and the strength of our global
customer service and operational model.”
