ISC Acquires Regulis S.A. and Adds International Railway Rolling Stock Registry to Its Portfolio

REGINA, Saskatchewan, Jan. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Information Services Corporation (TSX:ISV) (“ISC”, “we” or the “Company”) announced today the acquisition, through a wholly owned subsidiary, of all of the shares of Regulis S.A. (“Regulis”), the Registrar designate for the Luxembourg Rail Protocol, from SITA B.V. (“SITA”).

The Luxembourg Rail Protocol sets up a new legal regime for the recognition and enforcement of security interests in railway rolling stock, such as those of lenders, lessors and conditional vendors. Regulis was established as the entity to manage and operate the associated International Registry for Railway Rolling Stock (the “Registry”) for an initial contract period of ten years. As this is a new Registry, ISC does not consider this acquisition to be material to its current business.

“We are extremely pleased to complete this transaction,” says ISC President and CEO, Shawn Peters. “Our strategic interest in Regulis is based on our commitment to registries as our core competency, our legacy, and central to our long-term purpose. Developing and operating public registries is the reason ISC was created, and our focus remains on building modern registries that meet the unique needs of our clients and their customers.”

Peters continued, “We are enthusiastic about the impact the Registry will have to further the development of the global rail sector. ISC will continue to expand its portfolio of services and solutions to help improve the delivery of registry services by and for governments, intergovernmental and private organizations. Regulis does just that as we expand to deliver the Registry for the railway rolling stock sector.”

ISC is well-positioned to fulfil the Registry requirements — particularly given the strong fit with ISC’s operational capabilities, experienced team and direct alignment with our proven RegSys™ solution. Additionally, ISC has extensive expertise in collateral registries, including the end-to-end operation and management of the Personal Property Registry in Saskatchewan, Canada, where ISC is based.
