WILMINGTON, Del. -- March 12, 2013

Corporation Service Company^® (CSC^®) announced today that it has acquired the
Digital Brand Services (DBS) division of Melbourne IT. The resulting corporate
domain name and online services business will operate under a new name, CSC
Digital Brand Services.

“This acquisition significantly expands CSC’s global capabilities and will
establish CSC Digital Brand Services as the partner of choice for companies
worldwide seeking to promote and protect their brands online,” said CSC Vice
President Jim Stoltzfus.

The digital marketplace is continuing to evolve, with the launch of the
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ New gTLD program ushering
in the most significant change to the domain name space since the introduction
of country code top-level domains. CSC Digital Brand Services is helping
companies secure more than one-third of all commercial, or “dot brand,” New
gTLD applications.

“Our combined New gTLD expertise makes CSC Digital Brand Services the ideal
partner for brand owners looking to take advantage of this significant
development in the digital marketplace,” said Stoltzfus.

As a result of this acquisition, CSC Digital Brand Services now provides
corporate domain name and other online services to a majority of the world’s
most prestigious brands, with a footprint that extends to six continents.

“We have always been impressed with CSC’s strong customer-first reputation and
believe customers will benefit greatly from the combination of two of the
leading providers of digital brand services,” said Theo Hnarakis, CEO and
Managing Director of Melbourne IT.
