    KTS selects Radianz's infrastructure to distribute services to customers

Knowledge Technology Solutions PLC (KTS), the real-time financial data
technology company, is teaming up with Radianz, the leading provider of market
communications infrastructure for the global financial services industry. KTS's
agreement with Radianz will give KTS the ability to distribute its services to
the more than 10,000 financial services sites worldwide that are connected to
Radianz's infrastructure.

As of today, QuoteTerminal, KTS's UK live financial news and data service, is
available via Radianz.  MarketTerminalTM, the international version of
QuoteTerminal, also will be available via Radianz's infrastructure when it is

Among the many advantages of Radianz's infrastructure are its global reach and
high levels of security and reliability.  Moreover, the institutions that are
already connected to Radianz's infrastructure can gain access to the wide range
of services available via Radianz within days, compared to the six to eight
weeks usually required if, for example, a leased line from a common telecoms
carrier needs to be installed.

As previously stated by Radianz, 120 providers of financial services including
exchanges and electronic communications networks (ECNs) use Radianz's
infrastructure to distribute their services to customers worldwide.  They do so
because Radianz's infrastructure offers access to an instant marketplace for
their services.

Dr. Marc Pinter-Krainer, Chief Executive of KTS, commented:

'QuoteTerminal is a highly robust and secure service. For us, one of the many
advantages of working with Radianz is that its infrastructure combines the
benefits of global reach to a large base of customers with high levels of
resilience and security. Moreover, the agreement means that QuoteTerminal, and
later MarketTerminalTM, can be accessed from any of more than 10,000 financial
services sites worldwide that are connected to Radianz's infrastructure.'

Chris Church, Radianz's Executive Vice President and Head of Global Sales and
Marketing, said:

'We are pleased to welcome KTS to our large and growing list of providers who
are using RadianzNet to distribute services to the global financial community.
By using Radianz's infrastructure, KTS's services can be deployed quickly and
easily to institutions because we have established connectivity, globally.'
