National Bank of Canada Equips its Mobile Mortgage Sales Force with Basis100's Technology Solutions

National Bank becomes the second of the Big Six Banks to use
Basis100's HomeBASE(TM)

TORONTO and MONTREAL, Sept. 26 /CNW/ - Basis100 Inc. (BAS: TSE), an e- commerce technology solutions provider for the financial services industry, announced today that National Bank of Canada has signed a multi-year contract to equip its mobile mortgage sales force with Basis100's HomeBASE solution.

The National Bank mobile mortgage sales force will now be able to use their laptops to create a mortgage application and transmit it electronically to National Bank's Mortgage Center for approval from a client's home or on the road. The HomeBASE application is connected to National Bank's own credit scoring system, as well as Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation (CMHC) and GE Mortgage Insurance Company, so that decisions can be made quickly and seamlessly without the need to re-key information into multiple systems. This allows the Bank's mortgage specialist to provide a faster response to the client and reduces the time and effort in processing the
mortgage application.

"Basis100's technology solution will increase efficiencies and service levels, allowing us to provide our clients with the quality of service they deserve", stated Jean Houde, Senior Vice President Retail of the National Bank of Canada. Mr. Houde continued by stating, "Basis100 has a proven record and an attractive offering. We are continuing discussions with Basis100 to explore other solutions, such as BasisXpress(TM)."

The Bank's mortgage specialists will also have the ability to provide the client with various payment options, and potential financing scenarios with calculation tools built into the HomeBASE application. The additional functionality available with the HomeBASE application will allow the mortgage specialist to track their prospects, referral sources, and manage their individual operations more effectively.

"This is yet another example of how our overall solutions offer great value and flexibility to meet the needs of financial institutions in today's dynamic environment. We partner with our clients to continuously offer and provide "best-of-breed" practices and solutions to meet their specific needs" stated Gary Bartholomew, CEO and Chairman of Basis100 Inc.

The development of National Bank's HomeBASE solution has already begun and will be rolled-out to the Bank's sales force in December 2001. National Bank's mobile sales force is 115 strong and is quickly becoming a significant provider of annual mortgage origination for the Bank.

Basis100 earns transaction fees from lenders for each mortgage or loan funded or transacted through BasisXpress and LenderBASE applications. Basis100 also earns transaction fees from its other products such as MortgageBASE(TM), HomeBASE, and ConsumerBASE(TM). These front-end applications connect electronically to BasisXpress or LenderBASE, enabling Basis100 to earn fees throughout the full mortgage process.

Strong sales in 3rd quarter see new lenders in 41 states adopting

Solimar Technology for automated property valuations (AVM)

TORONTO, Oct. 16 /CNW/ - Basis100 Inc. (BAS:TSE), an e-commerce technology solutions provider for the financial services industry, announced today that the U.S. division has signed 200 new lending customers in the 3rd Quarter, boosting total customers to 1,448 for the company's AVM, PASS. Basis100's PASS product is currently in use with eight of the top ten equity lenders in the U.S.

Each property valuation generated by the system is conducted via the Internet in less than 5 seconds and can be used in lieu of a traditional appraisal during origination, for quality assurance purposes, or to value entire portfolios of properties.

"We have been reinforced as the technology solutions provider of choice for financial service providers, as evidenced by this continued growth," said Basis100, Chairman and CEO, Gary Bartholomew. "About 65% of Basis100 revenues are generated from our U.S. operations, so the continued adoption of the technology and success of the sales efforts means sustained revenue growth for the company."

Many of the new lending customers will fully integrate the Solimar Technology interface into their loan origination system so that extraneous data entry is eliminated, facilitating the quick delivery of loan approvals processed through the system.

"The overwhelming success of our U.S. sales efforts indicate a strong confidence in Basis100's technology solutions for automating mortgage and decisioning processes," said Owais Durrani, President for Basis100's U.S. operations. "Our products allow quicker turn-around times and potentially higher profits on mortgage origination for our customers, and is inline with our corporate objective to bring measurable value to the lending community."

Basis100 acquired Solimar Technology with the purchase of California- based Solimar.Net in February 2000, providing the foundation for its U.S. division. Basis100 now directs its Solimar Technology sales and operations from its U.S. headquarters in Irvine, California.

Corporation, has joined the company's Board of Directors.
Michael Johnston spent more than 32 years in the U.S. financial community
and comes to the Basis100 Board of Directors from Merrill Lynch Credit
Corporation (MLCC), where he was the Chairman, President & CEO, serving the
consumer mortgage and investment market. Mr. Johnston is a recognized

current client relationships, leverage our technology and continue to grow our
presence in the U.S. Michael's incisive direction, along with his retail and

Mr. Johnston, who had been with Merrill Lynch since 1969, was directly
responsible for building the Merrill Lynch Credit Corporation as an
independent, self-contained business unit, which has been profitable every
year since 1983. MLCC has also consistently rated 85 percent and higher for
client satisfaction, which complements Basis100's model to provide to its
customers business-driven solutions through technology.

I didn't listen to the conference call Tom. I thought the earnings looked good. Would of liked to see +.10 a share profit instead of -.10 but, ...the market doesn't appear to like their story, BAS now down $.42, but what stock isn't on a down day like this?

The sell on news theory prevails.

BAS is a pick on my Challenge thread this week.

Overall, very positive results with intelligent degree of skepticism under the circumstances. There will always be those whose generally anxious states will have a short-term impact. Hanging for the long run is easy on this one.

THIS NEWS LOOKS PROMISING


Basis100 to Acquire 100% of EFA International Inc.

Symbol: BAS
Industry: MLM
Subject: TNM
News release via Canada NewsWire, Toronto 416-863-9350 -ME-

Attention Business/Assignment Editors:

EFA provides a platform for international expansion in 36 countries

TORONTO, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Basis100 Inc. (TSE:BAS), an e-commerce
technology solution provider for the financial services industry, today
announced that it has agreed to purchase 100% of the shares of EFA
International Inc., a leading provider of trading, clearing and settlement
technology solutions to a number of segments in the global financial services
markets. This transaction is effective immediately, subject only to regulatory
approval.
Consideration for the transaction is a combination of cash of $6.4
million (CDN) together with 2.7 million shares of Basis100. In addition,
Basis100 may issue up to 5.6 million additional shares, based on EFA achieving
aggressive revenue and EBITDA performance targets over the next two fiscal
years. This issuance of the performance-related shares will be formally
approved by the shareholders at the next AGM.
EFA was founded in 1985 and has since grown to provide and implement its
solutions for more than 53 exchanges and depositories in 36 countries on four
continents. EFA is a major provider of securities trading and clearing and
settlement systems all over the world. Its products and services are used for
end-to-end trade processing, settlement and clearing, and for key components
of exchange trading systems. EFA provides exchanges with leading edge
securities software and has expanded to provide systems to other market
participants, such as investment dealers and electronic markets.
"We are fortunate to acquire a company with the foundational strength,
the promise, the relationships and the stature of EFA. As with the purchase of
Solimar.Net in 2000, we were looking for a company with a complementary
product suite and a proven record of selling and servicing into markets new to
Basis100 -- EFA meets those requirements. Due to the recent market conditions,
EFA became available as an acquisition for Basis100 with a value proposition
that would not have been possible a year earlier," said Basis100 CEO and
president, Gary Bartholomew. "Having exceeded our prescribed targets for the
past several quarters, Basis100 has a very strong foundation on which to
leverage EFA's technologies, recurring revenues and customer relationships. By
acquiring EFA, Basis100 now has an international footprint -- getting us
closer to our goal to be a significant player in the global financial
community."
Basis100 intends to obtain a significant share of the financial services
marketplace worldwide over the next five years. To accomplish this in a multi-
billion dollar market, a number of significant acquisitions will be required.
The EFA transaction is an example of such an acquisition, intended to
significantly increase revenue and EBITDA, while providing internal synergies
that will strengthen the business activities of the core businesses of both
Basis100 and EFA.
EFA has invested heavily in the development of new products over the past
several years in order to take advantage of a significant positive change in
the nature of its markets. With a prescribed requirement to faster settlement
processes, the industry will require the kind of technology available from EFA
to meet those needs. Given the investments made by EFA in the past, and the
marketing, sales, and research and development support to be provided by
Basis100, EFA is uniquely positioned to be the global leader in its
marketplace.
"We are very excited about the opportunities this acquisition brings to
both EFA and Basis100," said David Ewasuik, chairman and CEO of EFA. "Basis100
understands the intricacies of trading technology and has the expertise to
work with us to take our technology to the next level. Many of our customers
are moving towards adopting a transaction-based solution, similar to
Basis100's model, over the next few years. We look forward to both sales teams
working together to sell current Basis100 and EFA technologies around the
world."
"This acquisition will provide significant benefits to the shareholders
of Basis100," said Bartholomew, "We expect revenues and EBITDA to increase
significantly as a result of this transaction. Just as the revenues generated
by Basis100 have been highly predictable from an existing customer base, EFA,
too, has clear visibility in that a significant percentage of its projected
revenue will come from current and committed customers. Moreover, the nature
of EFA's technology is that it becomes deeply entrenched in its customers and
therefore customer longevity tends to be significant."
Subject to regulatory approval, David Ewasuik will join the Basis100
Board of Directors.

Conference Call Information
Gary Bartholomew, CEO and chairman, and Lance McIntosh, CFO, of Basis100
Inc. will hold an open conference call to review the company's recent
