OMEGA ATS, Its Connect for Faster Trading, Greater Liquidity

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 15, 2008) - OMEGA ATS and Integrated Transaction Systems Limited ("ITS") today announced the completion of connectivity. As a result, customers of ITS' Smart Order Routers can now benefit from the fast, anonymous and low-cost transactions available through OMEGA ATS, while also creating a greater liquidity pool for all OMEGA ATS users.

ITS provides SORs to five of Canada's six major brokerages, and more than 30 brokerages in total. A total of 140 ITS SORs are currently in production in Canada.

OMEGA ATS Chief Operating Officer Greg King said the connectivity between OMEGA ATS and ITS is another important milestone in the growth of the alternative marketplace.

"Since we launched OMEGA ATS five months ago, we have enjoyed solid growth in trading volumes with a limited number of service bureau connections," King said. "Adding the ITS client base will provide a tremendous boost to our market reach, and further increase the liquidity available to all our customers. It's an important part of our commitment to enable technology vendors to access OMEGA."

ITS' router is certified with all the Canadian visible markets. It has been tested to route over 500 orders per second, with an average latency per route of less than 1 millisecond.
