Commodity XL provides Legacy with the framework to produce the consistent and transparent disclosures of its mark-to-market techniques and worth of hard-to-value instruments that regulators demand.

Headquartered in Midland, Texas, Legacy focuses on the acquisition and development of oil and natural gas properties primarily located in the Permian Basin and Mid-Continent regions of the United States. Formed in October 2005 to own and operate oil and natural gas properties acquired from the Moriah Group, the Brothers Group, H2K Holdings Ltd. and MBN Properties LP, Legacy has grown rapidly through the acquisition of oil producing and natural gas properties and the exploitation of proved properties.

Legacy uses financial collars and swaps to hedge price movements in natural gas, crude oil and NGLs (Natural Gas Liquids). Triple Point's fair value disclosure software provides the company with the tools and systems to ensure consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the disclosure of credit-adjusted mark-to-market assumptions and valuations for both assets and liabilities by counterparty. Additionally, Commodity XL for Fair Value Disclosure provides Level 3 roll-forward activity and schedules and enables Legacy to track position by counterparty and perform sensitivity analysis.

"Today's unforgiving regulatory environment requires a higher level of business transparency and verifiability of accounting figures," said Elie Zabal, Triple Point's senior vice president of treasury management and regulatory compliance solutions. "Commodity XL provides Legacy with the framework to produce the consistent and transparent disclosures of its mark-to-market techniques and worth of hard-to-value instruments that regulators demand."

Triple Point's Commodity XL for Fair Value Disclosure is based on mature, well-tested software solutions obtained in its acquisition of INSSINC. INSSINC, now the treasury management and regulatory compliance division of Triple Point, serves premiere energy and commodity industry leaders throughout North America and Europe including such notable companies as: PacificCorp, TransAlta, TransCanada, SUEZ Energy, Southern Company, Ameren Energy, Scottish Power and Campbell Soup Company.
