Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. Completes $125 Million Tender Offer for Its 6.125% Senior Notes Due 2017

LAKE SUCCESS, New York -- September 3, 2008 -- Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: BR) announced that it has purchased $125 million principal amount of its 6.125% Senior Notes due 2017 pursuant to its previously announced cash tender offer for such notes. The offer expired at midnight, New York City time, on Tuesday, September 2, 2008 (the "Expiration Time") and payment for the purchased notes is expected to be made today.

As of the Expiration Time, tenders had been received with respect to $162,510,000, or 65%, of the outstanding principal amount of notes. Because the tender offer was over-subscribed, the validly tendered notes have been purchased on a pro rata basis with the applicable pro ration figure being approximately 76.87%. The consideration to be paid for each $1,000 principal amount of notes accepted for payment will be $915 for notes validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 18, 2008 (the "Early Tender Deadline") and $885 for notes validly tendered and not withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Time. In addition, each tendering holder of notes accepted for payment will be paid accrued and unpaid interest on such notes from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Payment Date. The aggregate consideration for notes accepted for payment, including accrued and unpaid interest, is expected to be approximately $116.3 million.

The tender offer was made pursuant to the company's Offer to Purchase dated August 5, 2008, as amended by the company's press release issued on August 18, 2008, and related letter of transmittal.

J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. acted as Dealer Manager for the tender offer.
