ACA Compliance Group Completes the Acquisition of Cordium


Unites two leaders in providing GRC products and services

ACA Compliance Group ("ACA") announced today that, following the receipt
of regulatory approvals, it has completed the acquisition of Cordium, a
leading provider of governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) products and
services. As of today, ACA employs nearly 700 people and provides
products and services to over 4,000 clients worldwide. The financial
terms of the transaction will not be disclosed.

ACA will incorporate Cordium's compliance, cybersecurity, and technology
products and services into its existing offerings. Notably, ACA's
completion of the Cordium acquisition will allow ACA to expand its
products and services to include tax services, financial and regulatory
reporting, Mirabella (Cordium's regulatory hosting platform), and a
post-Brexit EU office in Malta.

Over the next few months, ACA and Cordium's combined teams will bring
together both firms' technology offerings to further expand ACA's
product suite. ACA plans to integrate Cordium's Compliance ELF (Employee
Level Filing) product, a code of ethics and employee compliance
management solution, into ACA's ComplianceAlpha®.

ACA and Cordium clients will experience no disruption of service as a
result of the acquisition.

In February 2018, ACA partnered with Starr Investment Holdings to
support its continued expansion as a leader in the global GRC
marketplace. Through their partnership ACA and Starr will continue to
work together to identify and execute on organic and acquisition growth
opportunities with the goal of strengthening client delivery through
innovations in product and service offerings.

Robert L. Stype, CEO of ACA Compliance Group, said, "Over the
last few months, ACA has worked closely with the Cordium team to develop
plans for bringing together our people, technology, and processes to
better serve our clients. The shared commitment to innovation and
technology combined with our collective subject matter expertise will
enhance our current offerings."
