Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Sybase, Inc.

    EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- With over 90% of the world's
 securities firms and 60% of its banks using Sybase technology, the
 relationship Sybase has formed with the financial services community can be
 characterized as synergistic.  Sybase continues to lead this crucial vertical
 market by anticipating financial services' changing needs, specifically in
 terms of e-Business and customer service, and moving quickly to develop
 solutions that address mission-critical problems and breed success. Sybase
 maintains a proven record of customizing its leading e-Business products for
 large companies. In addition, Sybase embraces new opportunities, setting the
 benchmark for timely, quality financial solutions. In January of 2000, Sybase
 made a significant investment in its financial services offerings by acquiring
 Home Financial Network. The resulting subsidiary, Financial Fusion, is the
 preeminent provider of e-finance application integration and financial
 middleware products.  Another Sybase subsidiary, iAnywhere Solutions, enables
 Sybase to offer cutting-edge "m-Finance" applications to the financial
 services market. These mobile and wireless solutions offer to a company a
 competitive advantage, increased customer satisfaction and loyalty through
 convenient access to critical business information, and the strong potential
 to attract new customers. Emphasizing Sybase's position, CEO John Chen said,
 "Sybase's commitment to fulfilling the technological needs of the financial
 services community is unwavering. We will continue to offer world-class
 products and services through our corporate financial services department as
 well as through subsidiaries Financial Fusion and iAnywhere Solutions to
 ensure that Wall Street continues to run on Sybase."
