CHICAGO, June 17, 2003 — HyperFeed Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: HYPR), a provider of Managed Exchange Platform Services (MEPS) and exchange information to exchanges, content providers, re-distributors, institutions, channel partners and value-added resellers, today announces that EGAR and InfoReach have joined its H!VE Program as Alliance Partners. H!VE Alliance Partners have software or desktop trading applications that can be populated by the exchange information component of HyperFeed’s MEPS, by direct exchange feeds or by proprietary information. Each H!VE Alliance Partner specializes in trading applications targeted to specific types of traders – from options to hedge funds.

“EGAR and InfoReach are each well-known brands in their own right, and offer best-in-class solutions for particular types of trading needs and trading styles,” said Randy Deihs, HyperFeed’s Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Partners.” Deihs further comments, “As we deploy our MEPS technologies in the industry, we are proud to offer the MEPS compatible applications of our alliance partners in a non-proprietary model that allows our customers to facilitate solutions that make sense for their own clients. And our customers get the added benefit of being able to utilize H!VE Partner products with their current distribution systems.”
