BlackLine Systems Teaming with Multinational Professional Services Firm Resources Global Professionals To Host Southwest Client Roundtable in LA

GLOBAL, PUBLIC CLIENT COMPANY INTERNATIONAL RECTIFIER TO PRESENT CASE STUDY ON ROI, BENEFITS OF USING BLACKLINE INTERNATIONALLY

Calabasas, Calif. – June 11, 2010 – Financial software provider BlackLine Systems is teaming up with partner Resources Global Professionals, a multinational professional services firm, to host a Southwest Region Client Roundtable in Los Angeles on the benefits of automating the financial close and reporting processes. The event will feature a case study from BlackLine client International Rectifier (NYSE:IRF), supplier to the largest manufacturers of computers, consumer electronics, appliances, automobiles and defense systems in the world.

Jennifer Matheson, director of client service and IFRS subject matter expert at Resources Global Professionals, will open the discussion with a session on the immediate impact of IFRS on U.S. public companies through the implementation of the joint IASB and FASB Convergence Projects over the next 12 months.

Joseph Sorrentino, International Rectifier’s senior manager of corporate accounting, will discuss how this global public company, with offices and manufacturing facilities in 20 countries, uses BlackLine to reduce risk while increasing visibility and control over its financial close and reporting processes in an era of heightened scrutiny over compliance with SEC and other domestic and foreign regulations.

Accounting, finance, audit and compliance department executives from other regional BlackLine client companies are also expected to attend and share their experiences using BlackLine’s account reconciliation and financial close suite.

The BlackLine Southwest Client Roundtable, one of a series of regional Roundtables planned for the year, will be a half-day event, from 7:30 a.m. to noon, on Thursday, June 17, 2010, at Resources Global Professionals’ offices at 1000 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles.

Attendees will be eligible for CPE (continuing professional education) credits through Resources Global Professionals, an American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)-certified training provider.
