BELCO Holdings Selects BoardVantage

Enhances Access to and Security of Board Materials

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - BELCO Holdings Limited, the holding company for Bermuda Electric Light Company Ltd. (BELCO) and Bermuda Gas & Utility Company Ltd., has selected BoardVantage. BELCO Holdings will use BoardVantage to provide an encrypted, but fully searchable repository of board materials, while streamlining the process and distribution of board books.

Christian Blais, BELCO Vice President of Information Technology, said, "We have a progressive board who would like to receive materials electronically, but without any compromise to security. BoardVantage impressed us with their investment and track record in all aspects of security, including audited internal processes, third-party process reviews and SAS70 Type II certification."

"Also, given the volume of our board materials, BoardVantage's full text search ability on encrypted content is a valuable feature for us," he added.

"If a board portal is to become an effective governance tool it first needs to meet the standards and best practices of enterprise IT departments," said Joe Ruck, President & CEO, BoardVantage. "Given the size of our investments in security, it's gratifying to see our lead recognized by a prestigious company such as BELCO Holdings. We look forward to providing the very best in service to them."
