NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reis, Inc. (Nasdaq:REIS) ("Reis"),
a leading provider of commercial real estate market information and analytical
tools, announced today that it has launched a new, web-based credit risk,

developed in conjunction with Opera Solutions, LLC. Opera Solutions is a

innovations. Mobiuss® Portfolio CRE is targeted to both debt and equity

over 7,000 U.S. banks alone that are potential subscribers for the new
product, and overall, the commercial real estate data and analytics market may

As a loan-level analysis and surveillance platform, Mobiuss® Portfolio CRE
enables property valuation, credit analysis and stress testing, benchmarking
and portfolio pricing. This combination of Reis's unmatched commercial real
estate market and property data and analytics, with Opera Solutions' domain
expertise in credit risk modeling and data science provides commercial real
estate investors access to powerful analytics and portfolio transparency in an
intuitive, time saving solution. In addition to providing credit default
metrics such as expected losses and probabilities of default at the loan and
portfolio levels, outputs include forecasted collateral incomes and values for
multiple economic scenarios and regulator mandated stress tests.

Integrated with Reis's flagship platform, Reis SE, Mobiuss® Portfolio CRE will
allow clients to meet regulatory stress testing requirements, set loan loss
reserves and monitor their collateral.

Reis's CEO, Lloyd Lynford, observed, "The experiences of the last downturn
have changed the way that commercial real estate investors, particularly the
debt community, measure and monitor risk in their portfolios. Analyzing cash
flows, collateral values and default risk at the loan level – from the bottom
up – is now considered to be a standard method that can be employed by all
institutions. It is the new paradigm in commercial real estate risk analysis
and the Mobiuss platform is a state-of-the-art solution to meet those needs."

"Mobiuss leverages advances in data science and technology to provide market
participants with an unprecedentedly comprehensive set of insights into
market, property and loan performance while saving clients the expense and
headaches associated with managing and integrating data and analytics," said
Jon DiGiambattista, Opera Solutions' Global Markets Product Head. "The end
result is an ability to make smarter and more targeted decisions with
significantly lower overhead costs."
