Re Contract - Replacement

Knowledge Technology Solutions PLC
17 January 2008

This announcement replaces the announcement made on 16 January 2008 
(RNS Number: 8586L) and contains changes in the first and last paragraph.

                             MARKET DATA WEB PORTAL

KTS Plc, a leading provider of real-time market data solutions, today announces
that it has been selected to develop and provide ongoing hosting for the Web
Portal giving online access to real-time market data to be produced by Borse
Berlin Equiduct Trading at the launch of its new pan-European trading platform
ETS. The system will be accessible via the Borse Berlin Equiduct Trading website
from April 2008 enabling users to view the Equiduct VBBO (Virtual Best Bid/
Offer). Pre and post trade data from its Hybrid and PartnerEx market segments
will come online in mid 2008.

'We have chosen an established market data vendor for this project to avoid
'reinventing the wheel' and to enable us to concentrate on providing the best
quality exchange services for our participants. We have found a partner who will
be responsive to our evolving needs and one with whom we can work together to
enhance and build a truly beneficial source of data for our clients.' says Rob
Brouwer, Chief Information Officer, Equiduct Systems.

Andrew Miller, CEO of KTS, comments: 'The financial markets are evolving rapidly
to include many non-traditional execution venues. KTS supports the innovation of
firms like Borse Berlin Equiduct Trading by providing tailored solutions for the
consolidation and display of market data along with a managed hosting service.'

'Borse Berlin Equiduct Trading will be an important venue resulting from the
regulatory changes introduced by MiFID. Our selection is evidence of our strong
positioning and ability to address these and other large scale opportunities. As
the first commercial project to use both Arcontech's low-latency middleware and
KTS's proven flexible, browser delivered display technology, it represents an
endorsement of our strategy to combine these two businesses. We are delighted to
be part of this venture.' adds Miller.

Artur Fischer, Joint Chief Executive Officer, Borse Berlin adds 'We believe that
the Equiduct VBBO will become the European benchmark price as part of each
investment firm's equity best execution policy. The full depth of the virtual
book, from which the VBBO is derived, will be used to calculate volume weighted
execution prices as part of the PartnerEx segment of the Borse Berlin Equiduct
Trading market thus differentiating Equiduct VBBO from other consolidated data
