TickerTags Puts Data-Driven Research Analytics in the Hands of
Clients and Provides Unparalleled Flexibility to Derive Investment
Insights

M Science, the leader in data-driven research and analytics, today
announced the launch of the TickerTags web-based analytics platform. The
platform, which consists of a dashboard and two API services, allows
clients to perform proprietary research and analysis, providing
unprecedented access to analytics that will greatly inform their ability
to make investment decisions.

The new TickerTags dashboard exposes insights derived from large streams
of unstructured, natural language data coupled with TickerTags
proprietary ontology which includes nearly one million tags related to
approximately 3,000 investible assets. With this advancement, clients
now have access to the same dashboard being used by the TickerTags
analysts to derive the written research product offering.

In addition to the dashboard, TickerTags is offering two different API
services. The first provides direct programmatic access to mention
frequency data for each of the hand-curated tags. Clients seeking to
utilize the entire contextualized dataset now have real-time
programmatic access for their own proprietary research and analysis. The
second is a RESTful API that provides the TickerTags ontology as a
service. Clients can easily apply the TickerTags ontology to their own
library of text documents, mapping each document to specific companies,
products and brands, and applying much needed structure and context.

"The launch of the TickerTags product is a groundbreaking event for M
Science as it allows the power of our data mapping to be used in ways
that are more specific to our clients own goals and investment
strategies," said Michael V. Marrale, CEO of M Science. "The insights
and ideas generated by the TickerTags web-based platform will enable
clients to make more intelligent and opportune investment decisions. The
direct accessibility of the platform is the next step in the continued
expansion and enhancement of M Science products and services offered to
our clients."

These new capabilities demonstrate M Science's unique and innovative
product offerings and further distinguish the data-driven platform from
other providers. This unique approach of applying the ontology to
contextualize data sources is paramount to deriving mention frequency.
Mention frequency, or the level of conversations on any given topic can
be a leading indicator versus transaction data.

Mark Bachman, head of TickerTags by M Science, added, "We are thrilled
to offer this new capability and believe that the ability to access the
underlying insights powered by TickerTags will yield fresh and
actionable ideas. As part of the greater M Science family, TickerTags is
also leveraging the expansive M Science technology infrastructure and
40-person research team to provide clients with unique mention frequency
insights for investment decisions."
