Company to Support and Market Magnum, LUS and e-Nable Offerings
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 27, 2003 — Computer Sciences Corporation announced today that it has signed separate agreements with Swiss Re Life & Health America Inc. and e-Nable Corporation that will add advanced automatic underwriting systems and services to CSC’s nbAccelerator life insurance new business offering.
CSC has assumed development, maintenance and North American sales responsibility for Swiss Re’s two major underwriting support systems, Magnum and LUS, and will also incorporate their capabilities into nbAccelerator. Swiss Re will continue to provide an up-to-date risk assessment and underwriting knowledge base for its systems.
“CSC’s technology and expertise in new business processing will allow us to focus on Swiss Re’s core competencies — reinsurance, risk assessment and underwriting — instead of the development and support of systems for use by third parties,” said Chris Stroup, chief executive officer of Swiss Re Life & Health America Inc. “Separately, the Magnum and LUS systems are based on the most advanced underwriting techniques available. Soon they will combine into one comprehensive and powerful solution, CSC’s nbAccelerator.”
CSC has also agreed to provide technology, infrastructure and support to e-Nable Corporation. CSC’s nbAccelerator will be the technology framework for e-Nable’s life insurance services, which include real-time, one-stop access to
data sources for the underwriting process.

“nbAccelerator is one of CSC’s newest and most promising offerings,” said Michael Risley, president of the Life and Health division of CSC’s Financial Services Group. “With improved underwriting capabilities from Swiss Re and real-time services provided by e-Nable, CSC will substantially reduce life
insurance industry underwriting costs and service times.”
