Orc Software (SSE: ORC), the leading global provider of technology for advanced derivatives trading and connectivity solutions, today announced leading Italian investment firm and established Orc Software customer, Banca Akros, has selected Orc for providing a Direct Market Access (DMA) solution for electronic trading on IDEX, the new segment of the Italian Stock Exchange's derivatives market (IDEM) for the trading of electric energy futures contracts.

Revenues will be booked as soon as Banca Akros go live with their first customer.

"Orc technology will enable Banca Akros to meet increasing demand for trading on the new energy derivatives market," says Laura Bisconcin, Head of IDEX Brokerage at Banca Akros.

"We are honored to cooperate with Banca Akros at the time of the new IDEX market launch in Italy and to face this market challenge together."
