Computershare launches virtual meeting solution

Cost and time savings with greater shareholder engagement

NEW YORK, July 7, 2010 -- Computershare Limited (ASX: CPU), a leading financial services provider for the global securities industry, today announced the launch of its virtual meeting solution. With this solution, public companies can offer investors a convenient, simple and secure way to participate in annual and special meetings, including voting, live video and audio, and the ability to ask questions and participate in surveys without having to be on site for live meetings.

"Many people already prefer the convenience and economy of Web-based meetings," said Jay McHale, President, Computershare Equity Services. "Our virtual meeting solution allows an investor to participate in all the same ways as someone at a live meeting. The only difference for the investor is that they are not faced with the time, cost and aggravation of travel." The virtual meeting solution will be an important tool for public companies looking to reduce costs associated with investor events while trying to increase the quality and scope of their shareholder outreach.

Computershare's virtual meeting solution provides shareholders the ability to view public companies' annual meetings live and cast their proxy votes in real time without physically attending. The meeting site, which can be accessed through any Flash-enabled Web browser, was produced by Computershare to meet clients' needs for offsite access to annual meetings. Public companies can determine the level of access and options given to each meeting attendee.

With Computershare's leadership position as a transfer agent and registrar, the virtual meeting solution will be supported by some of the most experienced shareholder meeting experts in the industry.
