HONG KONG, Sept. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rahoul Ray, CEO/President of Nexis Holdings Limited (Frankfurt:NHN), today announced that the Nexis Group is reviewing strategic options for the investment of proceeds from its recent private placement of Euro 140m.

Key terms of the Euro 140m private placement were released to the market on 8 September 2010 by Nexis Group's Executive Chairman Walter Filler.

Rahoul Ray stated that Nexis is presently working closely with its advisers to consider a range of strategic options for the use of placement proceeds, including:
