World-Check Announces Acquisition of IntegraScreen



    LONDON, Feb. 4 /CNW/ - World-Check today announced the acquisition of
IntegraScreen, a leading provider of due diligence services to corporations
and governments worldwide.
    With the addition of International Enhanced Due Diligence (IEDD) reports
to its existing portfolio, World-Check is positioned to provide an end-to-end
risk management service providing Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your
Employee (KYE) identity authentication, reputation screening, customized
country risk assessments and comprehensive due diligence reports for in-depth
analysis, reporting and monitoring across multiple industries.
    IEDD reports are specifically designed to cater to market needs and
provide KYC and business partner screening that meets Anti Money Laundering
(AML), anti corruption and Counter Financing of Terrorism (CFT) compliance
obligations such as those required under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
(FCPA), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the USA Patriot Act. Due diligence
reports are essential when: conducting pre-merger and acquisition inquiries
and pre-IPO research; entering into a new international joint venture;
engaging a critical business partner in an emerging market; reviewing
international hedge funds and implementing best practices for regulatory
compliance and corporate governance.
    Mr. Daniel Peak, Chief Executive Officer of World-Check said, "This
acquisition was made possible through our continued success and ongoing quest
to provide our clients with best-of-breed tools to cover all aspects of risk
management. IntegraScreen's Due Diligence reporting service is a perfect
addition to our existing product offerings, and will enable us to deliver
enhanced value to clients who require 360 degree in-depth reporting before
making essential business decisions. With offices in 19 locations across 10
countries and over 400 employees, our wider global research network and
expanded coverage of emerging markets including the Middle East, Asia Pacific,
Eastern Europe and Latin America will undoubtedly provide us with a leading
competitive edge."
