He indicated that his focus for the remainder of 2003 will be directed toward expanding the company’s organizational infrastructure as well as its physical facilities, including its information management computer systems as the firm continues to hire staff necessary to accommodate the increase in trading software customers throughout the world.

Mr. Mathews emphasized that as Market Technologies approaches its 25th anniversary in 2004, its growth would be managed in a very deliberate manner, so that the firm continues to maintain its position of stature in the financial software industry.
