August 5, 2010

LONDON, August 5, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ –

– Misys Opics Plus Solution to Manage Growth and Minimise Risk

Misys plc (LSE: MSY), the global application software and services
company, today announced that Philippine National Bank (PNB) has agreed to
implement Misys Opics Plus 3.0, Opics Risk Plus and Eagleye to drive
efficiencies as it expands its treasury business. The integrated solution
will allow the bank to manage and grow its treasury operations more
efficiently, keeping market risk low as it seeks new business opportunities
in increasingly diverse asset classes.

PNB, originally established in 1916, is one of the largest banks in the
in terms of assets. Having been a Misys Opics customer since
2003, PNB was keen to take advantage of the latest release of Misys Opics
Plus. The new solution, along with Opics Risk Plus and Misys Eagleye, will
enable PNB to improve its treasury business, risk management and portfolio

PNB has a vision to be a leader in financial performance and through this
it has a particular focus on innovation and the use of cutting-edge
technology. It wanted a solution that would enable it to move into
derivatives and structured products as it looks to respond rapidly to
changing market conditions and customer preferences. PNB will be able to
improve exposure management by pooling risk exposure centrally in order to
manage the process better. Additionally, the commercial bank will improve its
market risk management capabilities through enhanced reporting tools and
better controls across the business from the front to the back office.

Lee Boon Huat, Managing Director Asia Pacific, Misys added, “We are
thrilled to be working with PNB as it enters the latest phase of its
development. This represents the first implementation of the latest version
of Misys Opics Plus in the Philippines. Misys has more than 360 customers in
