PHOENIX -- January 7, 2013

Corpedia, the global leader in ethics and compliance training solutions and
advisory services, announced in a joint release with NYSE Euronext the launch
of a critical training program, What it Means to be a U.S. Publicly Traded
Company, a program developed with leading global companies for a global
audience that focuses on the governance and compliance onboarding guidance
immediately after a merger or acquisition with a U.S. publicly traded company.

Public companies are well aware of the importance of the policies and
guidelines put in place to protect organizational assets. However, during the
on boarding process post-merger or acquisition, joining employees need to be
quickly “brought up to speed” on what it means to be a publicly traded
company.

Preventing fraud in compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), as well as the importance of creating
accurate financial statements and cooperating with internal audit in order to
comply with the requirements of a stringent regulatory environment are just a
few of the many topics public companies need to communicate to their
workforces.

With contributions from clients Jones Lang LaSalle, AECOM and other leading
global organizations, Corpedia developed a program that will help companies
thrive during the onboarding process post-merger or acquisition, providing
guidelines and best practices employees need to know in order to understand
the implications, responsibilities and benefits of joining a public company.

“We recognize the need to train newly acquired employees as quickly as
possible on the myriad of compliance rules and regulations. With input from
global companies, Corpedia developed a program that helps organizations
onboard employees post-M&A as efficiently and effectively as possible,” said
Tim Erblich, President of Corpedia.
