xRM Global Enters the Wealth Intelligence Market With Ockham Research, LLC Acquisition

"Information Slicing Technology enables the wealth management industry to regain touch and trust with its client base"

 TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2009) - xRM Global Inc. ("xRM Global") (TSX VENTURE:XRM) has developed and operates the XRM Utility for some of the largest, global enterprises. The XRM Utility is a High Touch – High Trust core infrastructure that manages the most valued relationships across the enterprise. 

xRM Global is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement to acquire substantially all the assets of Ockham Research, LLC, a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the State of Georgia ("Ockham").

Pursuant to the terms of the purchase agreement, EM Technologies, Inc. ("EM Technologies"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of xRM Global, will acquire from Ockham certain intellectual property, tangible personal property, inventories, accounts receivables, cash and cash equivalents, and the rights under specified contracts, for a purchase price of US$1,800,000, as adjusted pursuant to the terms of the purchase agreement. Approximately US$275,000 of the purchase price will be offset against the full amount of a prior loan made by EM Technologies to Ockham. The purchase price will be paid by the issuance of approximately 3.6 million common shares of xRM Global at an issue price of $0.50 per share, subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the purchase agreement. The shares issued to Ockham will be subject to certain escrow conditions agreed to by the parties. Completion of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of a number of conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

"This is a very strategic acquisition for xRM Global on two fronts", stated Gary Bartholomew, Chairman and CEO of xRM Global Inc. "First, it brings a core technology to xRM Global that extracts intelligence from online and traditional media sources, bringing content, analysis and information directly to our clients. Second, with xRM Global's High Touch – High Trust wealth management utility, investment managers and advisors will be able to synthesize the Ockham intelligence directly into their daily work flow. This will strengthen the ability of each xRM Global client to retain assets, build more informative dialogues and improve overall asset growth."

Christian J. Ward, founder and CEO of Ockham added, "The Ockham team has long recognized that the next step for information and analytics in wealth management is making relevant connections between managers and customers. All the data in the world is useless in the absence of a simple way to understand and inform your clients in a proactive and efficient manner." Ward continued, "XRM Global's High Touch – High Trust relationship utility embodies this concept perfectly. Every wealth manager and investment advisor needs a better way to use information, analysis, and content in their relationships with each client."
