              Euromoney sells Metal Bulletin business, Systematics


Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC ('Euromoney') announced today that it has
completed the sale of certain assets of Systematics International Limited
('Systematics') to its management, led by Christine Bhatt.


The sale of Systematics, which is a small database business principally in the
farm machinery and construction sector, is a Class 3 transaction for Euromoney
under the Listing Rules. The gross assets of Systematics at completion were
£117,000.


Systematics was acquired by Euromoney as part of its acquisition of Metal
Bulletin in October 2006 for £222 million.  The disposal of Systematics is
consistent with Euromoney's continuing strategy of streamlining its portfolio of
businesses and focusing on its core markets in finance, metals, commodities, and
energy. Having sold Atalink in March and EIC in April, the sale of Systematics
completes Euromoney's program of selling non-core Metal Bulletin businesses.
