  • 23.  Enhanced cash management thanks to better visibility and operational efficiency  Increased automation, standardisation and straight- through processing  Reduced operational and settlement risk  Lower costs by diversifying banking connections  Greater flexibility and control over its banking relations Canadian National Railway, Canada Increasing back-office efficiency with Alliance Lite2  Consulting support with on- boarding and standards and best practices implementation  Automated wire transfers over SWIFT  Global cash overview from EOD cash statements over SWIFT  End-to-end support: project management, implementation, collaborative troubleshooting  Alliance Lite2 cloud solution means lower banking costs, greater flexibility SolutionChallenges Benefits “We decided to implement SWIFT cash reporting in our back office in order to further standardise and automate our treasury operations. After exploring various options, we selected Alliance Lite2 as the best way to start enjoying the benefits of SWIFT for our business. Alliance Lite2 has given us greater visibility over our cash management and helped us optimise our connections with our banking partners. It is simple and easy to use, and the Lite2 service and support from SWIFT has gotten us up and running in a matter of weeks.” Paul Tawel, Senior Manager, Treasury Operations, Canadian National Railway Company  Multiple web portals needed to manage bank accounts  Insufficient visibility over global accounts and banking relationships  Expensive to centralise accounts in concentrator bank  Wanted more automation and standardisation  Lack of experience with SWIFT standards and bank on-boarding requirements BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lite2 23

In a very short period of time, Alliance Lite2 has enabled us to do just that. Alliance Lite2 provides a secure cloud solution for connecting our Trading application service provider with the global SWIFT community of brokers and liquidity destinations – without the need for large upfront capital costs.” Nicolas Salomon, Head of Middle Office/Treasury, CERN  4 billion CHF pension fund dealing with 21 currencies  High transaction costs for overall trading activities  Limited access to larger trading network, leading to high broker costs  Need to increase STP rates for pension operations  Inability to connect to application service provider (ASP) via Service Bureau BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lite2 24

Eliminating the need to manage another relationship was important to further increasing our efficiency. However, we didn’t want to own or house infrastructure on site because it changes so rapidly. Lite2 was the perfect solution, because it provides a cloud-based, direct connection to SWIFT and there is only one vendor to manage. The Lite2 service and support from SWIFT allowed us to implement both the solution and a number of our banking relationships in just a few weeks.” Brad Vollmer, Treasurer, at Gilead Sciences, Inc.  Wanted to improve treasury connectivity  Lack of real-time visibility to global accounts  Desired a move to a bank agnostic solution  Needed more automation of manual processes  Time and cost of managing multiple connection points  Wanted to streamline treasury relationships and processes BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lite2 25
