Bourse Reaches Further Through New Deals

[Sydney, Australia, May 12, 2000] -- Financial information site Bourse Data will further extend its reach, gaining access to more than 400,000 more potential customers through two separate agreements.

The company has signed a new deal to distribute its Personal Investor Software through ISP Asia Online, and under this deal Bourse will offer customers access to the Internet through the provider and extend its product reach to include all of its new and existing subscribers.

The product will include the Bourse software, Internet access through Asia Online, and initial free subscription period and a multimedia tutorial.

The company has also expanded on a deal it signed earlier this year with Ingram Micro Australian, to bundle and distribute an additional 100,000 Bourse Original Equipment Manufacturer products. This will bring the total distribution through this channel to 200,000.

Bourse chairman Gil Hoskins said that the partnership with Asia Online provided an opportunity to "diversify our market space", and was core to the company's plan to extend its reach to "every Internet player, not just those in the financial sectors".
