PrivateMarkets™ Demonstrates Bilateral Trading Solution at Gulf Coast Power Association Spring Conference

Solution Provides Seamless Transition from Zonal to Nodal
for Texas ERCOT Power Market

April 7, 2008, Boxborough, MA - PrivateMarkets, Inc., the provider of the leading electronic trading service for bilateral structured transactions, today announced that it will be at the Gulf Coast Power Association Spring Conference, April 10th , showing its solution designed to seamlessly transition from Zonal trading today to the coming Texas Nodal market.  The demonstration will feature the PrivateMarkets solution for post-auction trading of Congestion Revenue Rights (CRR’s).

“ERCOT is moving forward with the Nodal market design and PrivateMarketswill be ready when needed by its customers”, according to Bob Wittmeyer, Vice President of Operations for PrivateMarkets. “Our solution will enable customers to trade both Zonal or Nodal energy today, and CRR’s when they are available.  Our solution avoids any need to change software or to retrain users.”

PrivateMarkets is an electronic trading platform designed to replace ineffective voice and IM operations for bilateral trading.  The PrivateMarketsplatform is optimized for low liquidity transactions, such as shaped power tenders.  It enables audits down to an individual trade level and management controls to a segment of power trading where none exist today.

Attendees at the GCPA Spring Conference will be able to see how PrivateMarketscan transition from Zonal or Nodal trading, and will have an opportunity to get “hands on” with the product.  The GCPA Spring Conference is being held April 11th at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center.  For more information, see
