Numerix has been selected by Lehman Brothers Holdings to provide independent real time valuations.

The signing of Numerix is a critical step in unwinding LBHI’s derivatives book and the ultimate reconciliation of outstanding creditor claims.

"Lehman performed an extensive search to identify a partner that could provide the analytics and technology capable to value the depth and breadth of derivatives products that were transacted in the Lehman derivatives portfolios," says Daniel Ehrmann, managing director of Alvarez & Marsal and co-head of LBHI’s derivatives asset team. "It became clear that Numerix was best positioned not only to provide LBHI with the valuations we need to resolve derivatives claims, but also to flex the market inputs and transaction terms to ensure that those valuations are reasonable."

LBHI selected Numerix to accelerate the resolution of inter-company accounts and systems and resolve derivative claims. The Numerix team of onsite financial engineers sit side-by-side with LBHI traders and risk managers and provide ad hoc, real-time valuation services along with software support and project management.

Numerix is actively aggregating existing trade information from all of LBHI’s legacy systems onto a single platform – Numerix Portfolio – and providing independent valuations on the entire LBHI book.

The selection of Numerix was approved by the US Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan) in April of 2009.

‘We are honoured to be working on the most unique and unquestionably the largest valuation deal in history,’ says Steven R. O’Hanlon, president and chief operating officer of Numerix. ‘Numerix brings the best capabilities and focus to providing LBHI with a single platform and the analytics necessary for the ultimate resolution of its intercompany accounts and the integration of existing legacy systems. We are delighted to be partnering with the derivatives team on this important and exciting mandate.’
