Resurgens Technology Partners Acquires InvestorForce from MSCI to
Form the Leader in Performance Analytics and Reporting Solutions for the
Global Institutional Investment Industry

Investment Metrics and InvestorForce, two leading providers of
investment analytics and reporting solutions for the global
institutional investment industry, are merging to further focus on the
dynamic and increasingly complex needs of investment consultants, wealth
managers and investment managers. Resurgens Technology Partners has
entered into a definitive agreement to acquire InvestorForce from MSCI
Inc. (NYSE:MSCI), and will merge it with its portfolio company,
Investment Metrics. The transaction is expected to close within the next
three months, subject to customary closing conditions. Terms of the deal
were not disclosed.

The merger enables the combined entity to provide best-in-class
investment tools for performance analysis, investment reporting,
investment policy statements, peer benchmarking and competitive
insights, leveraging the unique and substantial data assets of the
combined company. The newly combined company will have clients with
approximately $10 trillion in assets under advisement (AUA) running on
the platform. This will provide unprecedented insights into global
industry-wide asset allocation trends, performance benchmarks, asset
flows, plan sponsor and style universe performance, empowering its
clients to make more informed investment decisions. In addition, with
the resources and development capabilities of the combined entity, the
merger enables the firm to strengthen its commitment to solving the many
other evolving challenges facing the institutional investment industry,
including data aggregation, reconciliation, and the need to produce rich
analytical and reporting output.

The Investment Metrics and InvestorForce teams have over forty years of
combined institutional investment technology industry expertise. The
combined company's clients include industry leaders such as Aon Hewitt,
Mercer, Morgan Stanley, Pension Consulting Alliance, RVK and Segal Marco
Advisors, among many others.

The company, which will operate under the Investment Metrics name, will
continue to support both the Investment Metrics and InvestorForce
software, data and service offerings.

Sanjoy Chatterjee, Founder & President of Investment Metrics,

managers, asset owners, trusts, OCIOs and players within the
alternatives space."

Blake McLaughlin, Executive Director, Head of Product Management of
