Broadridge Releases the First Mobile ProxyVote Platform to Canadian Shareholders Who Can Now Vote on Smart Phones and Other Mobile Devices

Proxy voting moves to the next generation of advanced technology with today’s announcement by Broadridge Financial Solutions, that its ProxyVote.com platform will now be available on mobile data devices such as smart phones and tablets for Canadian shareholders.

Twenty million proxy votes were recorded through ProxyVote.com for the 12 months ended June 30, 2010. ProxyVote offers beneficial and registered shareholders, as well as ESOP and ESPP participants, the convenience of voting their shares on the Internet. With the introduction of Mobile ProxyVote the service will now be available on compatible mobile devices.

Until now, shareholders were only able to cast electronic votes via their personal computers, if they had registered for email notification and delivery of proxy materials. According to Broadridge data, e-mail delivery of proxy materials is growing exponentially in North America, nearly tripling to almost 78 million deliveries for the annualized period ended June 30, 2010, up from 27 million deliveries for the annualized period ended June 30, 2006.

Mobile ProxyVote.com is compatible with an array of market-leading mobile devices, including the Apple iPhone 4, as well as the BlackBerry, Google Android and Microsoft tablets and other Smart Phone platforms.
