Internet–based investment guidance service to be available to all plan participants.

ALBANY, NY, April 27, 2004 — Newkirk, a leading financial application services provider (ASP) today announced that The Union Central Life Insurance Company (Union Central) has adopted MasteryPOINT’s Guidance Plus® (GP) system as its solution for providing online investment guidance to its retirement plan participants.

“We are very pleased to have Union Central adopt Guidance Plus,” said Todd Bloomfield, president of MasteryPOINT. “We think that Union Central’s action is further confirmation that the marketplace is looking for a more cost-effective solution to providing guidance to plan participants. And that’s what we offer.”

“We’ve worked with MasteryPOINT before,” said Union Central’s Angelo de Jesus, Second Vice President, Investment Products. “We currently offer its online education tool in conjunction with another provider’s advice service. Guidance Plus will replace both existing services.”

“MasteryPOINT’s flexibility and customer service were key factors in our decision,”
de Jesus continued. “Plus, their analysis, comparison and ranking of investment choices within each asset class gives our participants the information they need to make sound investment choices.”

MasteryPOINT expects to implement Guidance Plus for Union Central in the second quarter of 2004.
