LONDON and LOS ANGELES, June 10, 2013

LONDON and LOS ANGELES, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Financial software
provider BlackLine Systems and enterprise application software leader SAP AG
(NYSE: SAP) will be presenting together this week at the Financials 2013
conference in Amsterdam (Tuesday to Thursday, 11 to 13 June 2013). In the
first of two presentations, BlackLine and SAP will be joined by Thomson
Reuters for a client case study highlighting best practices and benefits of
automating critical accounting processes using BlackLine alongside solutions
from SAP.


For the first session, entitled "See How Thomson Reuters Closes with
Confidence by Automating Account Reconciliations with Solutions from BlackLine
and SAP," Robert C. Abercrombie, CPA, director of Corporate Infrastructure &
Operations for Thomson Reuters, will share his insight on how companies can
communicate better, improve efficiencies, increase productivity, reduce bottom
line costs and ultimately 'close with confidence' by implementing best
practices such as automating traditionally manual account reconciliation and
financial close processes.

The presentation with Thomson Reuters is one of two that BlackLine will
deliver alongside SAP during the conference.

The second, entitled "How to Overcome Weaknesses and Inefficiencies in the
Account Reconciliation Process for a Faster Close," will show how finance,
accounting, audit and compliance executives can further ensure the integrity
of their balance sheets – and ultimately financial reports – by implementing
software to automate the traditionally manual, labor-intensive and
spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation process.

Both presentations are designed to inform customers, whether operating in an
environment of only SAP® solutions or applications from multiple vendors, how
account reconciliation process optimisation can help them achieve a quicker
and more accurate financial close process.

Featured Speakers:

  oStefan Karl, chief solution expert, Finance Solutions, SAP AG
  oMario Spanicciati, executive director of EMEA & EVP of Operations,
    BlackLine Systems
  oRobert C. Abercrombie, CPA, director, Corporate Infrastructure &
    Operations, Thomson Reuters

Attendees will leave each session with insight into how, by automating their
account reconciliations, they can:

  oVirtually eliminate spreadsheets (and the manual errors that often come
    with them) from their account reconciliation process
  oAutomate traditionally manual accounting functions
  oHave a faster, more efficient close cycle - maintaining more control and
    visibility worldwide, while reducing risk
  oRealise exceptional ROI in a very short timeframe
  oImprove the accuracy and timeliness of compliance reporting
  oManage compliance while servicing multiple locations, worldwide
