== History ==
*Patsystems was founded in 1994 by a group of [[derivatives]] [[trader]]s and technology professionals at a time when the [[futures trading|futures]] markets were beginning to migrate from physical [[trading floor]]s to an electronic model. [[Tom Theys]], a former [[floor trader]], designed the Patsystems software while working at [[Liffe]]. The idea was based around a hand-held device that would put [[order]]s into other [[market]]s with an interface that would connect the hand-held to the [[DTB]] (the forerunner to [[Eurex]]) to facilitate [[arbitrage]] with [[Liffe]]. That led to offering clients direct access to [[exchange]]s through the Internet; the software Theys designed would then be distributed to [[local]]s in [[dealing room]]s or in their homes. Unlike other [[ISV]]s at the time, Theys and the other Patsystems founders were interested in bringing direct access to [[retail]] as well as [[institutional]] customers.  Eventually, the company was approached by [[Investec]], a South African [[bank]] that wanted to take Patsystems [[public]], which it did. Patsystems raised $80 million in an [[IPO]] in March 2000. [[Thomas Theys| Theys]] left Patsystems in 2003.  (*The company [[floated]] on the [[London Stock Exchange]] (LSE) in March 2000 and re-[[listed]] on the [[Alternative Investment Market]] in February 2003.)The company was de-listed on 28th February 2012.*Patsystems [[Acquireacquire]]d [[Tamesis]] August 2005. The [[acquisition]] gave Patsystems access to real-time trade capture, [[valuation]] and [[risk management system]]s for the [[structured finance]] and [[credit derivatives]] market. 
*Maiden [[dividend]] declared in 2007.
*In July of 2011, Patsystems acquired [[Mixit Inc.]].
*Patsystems was acquired by [[ION Trading]] in February 2012.
