PHOENIX & NEW YORK -- January 29, 2013

Corpedia and Corporate Board Member, both NYSE Euronext Companies, have
partnered to offer a multi-tiered suite of products to help companies more
effectively manage corporate governance responsibilities. The Corporate
Governance Leadership Suite consists of three tracks, which include
comprehensive tools and resources to help senior governance officers advance
the dialogue for compliance and governance best practices.

Through membership in Corpedia’s enhanced Business Ethics Leadership Alliance
(BELA), the Ethics & Compliance Track helps companies navigate complex
regulatory and legislative mandates. BELA promotes continual advancement of
corporate ethics and compliance, by empowering members to raise the public
profile of ethics as an important part of an organization’s competitive
business strategy.

Governance-related policy changes introduced in recent years have increased
the focus on the experience and qualifications of corporate directors. The
Board Leadership Track, provides boards of directors, corporate secretaries
and general counsel unlimited access to a wide-variety of educational
opportunities including Peer Exchanges, live events and webinars, and
exclusive thought leadership through Corporate Board Member’s Board Leadership
Program.

Additionally, the Governance, Risk and Compliance Track (GRC), includes all of
the benefits of the Ethics & Compliance and Board Leadership Tracks, plus
insights, comparative metrics, and recommendations for improvement. The track
also features a subscription to Corpedia’s benchmarking tool, Compliance
Program Advisor (CPA), plus, five Board Governance Training Videos.

“Close to 150 member companies, including private companies, non-profits and
large public companies, like Wal-Mart, Starbucks, and Pepsi-Co, currently
benefit from one or more of the services offered through these tracks. Due to
recent guidelines set forth by the SEC and the DOJ, plus, investors continual
demand for improved corporate transparency; governance, oversight, and
compliance have never been more important,” said John McGonegal, Vice
President, Board Services.

“Participation in the programs offered through this suite has been very
valuable to our business,” said Mark Ohringer, Executive Vice President,
Global General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Jones Lang LaSalle. “Now
more than ever, it’s imperative for companies to continually think about how
they keep their officers and directors informed about regulatory changes, best
practices in ethics and managing enterprise risk. We’ve found that the
content, training, and peer-to-peer interaction available through these
programs provide invaluable insight and create a competitive advantage for our
business.”
