NEWARK, Calif. -- February 26, 2013

Risk Management Solutions (RMS) is pleased to announce that Paul Dali has been
named chairman of its board of directors. Mr. Dali has been serving as an
advisor to the board for the past year, providing invaluable perspective as
RMS develops new technology and business capabilities to enable insurers and
reinsurers to achieve breakthrough benefits from resilient and real-time risk
management practices.

“Paul has already made an extraordinary contribution to RMS, and it’s clear he
has the vision and determination to support our business transformation over
the next few years,” commented Hemant Shah, CEO of RMS. “We are extremely
fortunate to have attracted Paul, with his wisdom and passion for our
business, to this important role.”

Mr. Dali, who has a strong strategic focus on the ‘real-time enterprise’, is a
progressive and visionary leader and investor. He has backed a number of
highly successful technology companies whose products proved to be
breakthroughs in computer multimedia and infrastructure software. Prior to his
career in venture capital, he served as CEO of Regis McKenna, one of the
largest high-tech marketing companies in the U.S., and prior to that served as
general manager of the PC Division of Apple Computer and chairman of Apple's
marketing council.

The RMS board, which was historically comprised of corporate executives from
RMS and its parent company, DMGT (DMGT:LSE), now includes three new Silicon
Valley directors whose roles are to serve as independent non-executive
directors, assisting RMS as it executes its plan and providing guidance in key
areas of expertise. Martin Morgan, CEO of DMGT, who has served as chairman of
RMS for 14 years, remains a director of the board.

In addition to Paul Dali, Dr. Gerald Held, a corporate director on numerous
public and private technology company boards, and former Silicon Valley
software executive, joins the RMS board as an independent director. Dr. Held
has over 40 years’ experience, including serving as the head of database
product development at Oracle Corporation, and leading software development
and strategic planning at fault-tolerant and scalable systems pioneer, Tandem
Computers. Dr. Held has been an active advisor to RMS over the past three
years as it develops its software architecture and cloud computing technology.

Dominique Trempont, a seasoned executive and board member with a focus on
cloud and new media, also joins the RMS board. Mr. Trempont has over 30 years’
experience as an executive, CEO, and member of the board of directors of
highly successful technology companies. He served as chief financial officer
and head of operations for NeXT Software, which was acquired by Apple, and was
CEO of a leading software-as-a-service company focused on enterprise
self-service applications. He was also on the board of 3Com. Mr. Trempont
currently serves on the boards of global public companies, DMGT, and Real
Networks, and on those of private cloud-based companies, Trion Worlds, a
leader in multiplayer gaming, and ON24, a leader in webcasting and virtual
