STAMFORD, Conn. -- March 11, 2013

At the upcoming 2013 National Postal Forum, Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) will
showcase its latest technologies and services that help mailers simplify the
complex challenges they face in doing business. The Forum runs from March
17-20, 2013 at Moscone Center West in San Francisco, California. Pitney Bowes
will exhibit at Booth #728.

The Forum is the largest annual gathering of mailing industry executives and
companies. The 2013 event will take place against the backdrop of ongoing
changes in the mailing industry landscape, and the U.S. Postal Service’s
recent move to require all mail to include an Intelligent Mail® barcode in
order to qualify for automation pricing.

In considering the upcoming convention, Pitney Bowes President and CEO Marc
Lautenbach said, “There is a tremendous amount of change across the industry,
and National Postal Forum is the perfect time for mailers to come together to
discuss important topics and explore opportunities to enhance their
communications, build stronger client relationships and grow their
businesses.”

At Pitney Bowes’s booth, large, enterprise organizations will see innovative
