NYISO Selects ROME as Credit Risk Management System

Market Participants Will Benefit From Increased Data Visibility and Efficiency

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - ROME Corporation, the leading provider of credit risk management solutions for the energy markets, today announced that The NYISO, New York's Independent System Operator, has selected ROME CreditRisk as their new enterprise credit risk management system. With ROME, NYISO will automate and streamline their credit management processes across all markets. NYISO market participants will benefit from increased data visibility and improved efficiency.

NYISO operates New York State's bulk electricity grid and administers their wholesale electricity markets. Recent growth in the wholesale electricity market and evolving market design requirements resulted in increasingly complex credit data and processes as well as integration issues. After internal evaluation and feedback from market participants, they determined a critical need to create an automated credit management system with near real-time credit risk assessment and a web interface for market participants to manage their credit position as a portfolio.

NYISO selected ROME as their preferred vendor after conducting an extensive RFP process and build vs. buy evaluation. NYISO will utilize ROME CreditRisk, a powerful web-based enterprise software solution offering advanced customization, integration, workflow, and reporting capabilities. "All companies involved in the volatile energy markets, regardless of size, need deeper insight and better control around their credit exposure," explains David Achim, CEO and President at ROME Corporation. "We are excited to work with NYISO as they set the benchmark for credit management best practices by introducing credit portfolio management and increased data visibility for all market participants while at the same time limiting credit exposure to the market as a whole."
