     Directors and officers to benefit from enhanced governance, risk and

NEW YORK -- March 20, 2013

Corpedia and Corporate Board Member, NYSE Euronext (NYX) companies, and Marsh
announced today that they have entered into a strategic alliance to provide
directors and officers with enhanced governance, risk and compliance

The alliance combines Corpedia’s expertise in governance, risk and compliance
education and advisory services, and Corporate Board Member’s expertise in
providing senior officers and directors with governance and compliance
resources, with Marsh’s directors and officers liability (D&O) expertise,
powerful analytical platform, and claims advocacy support. Together, they will
provide directors and officers with unrivaled advisory services and resources
they need to make informed decisions on compliance-related trends and issues.

In the first of what will be several new joint offerings, the organizations
have launched the Board Compliance Oversight and Governance Diagnostic. The
diagnostic assists companies in benchmarking their current board programs to
those of their peers and provides insight into ways they can improve
governance processes and mitigate risk.

Commenting on the alliance, David Bidmead, U.S. CEO of Marsh said, “One of the
greatest risks companies face today is the evolving scope and complexity of
regulatory reform, which creates a great degree of uncertainty from a D&O
liability standpoint. Through our alliance with Corpedia, we will give
companies and their directors and officers the tools they need to better
understand the increasingly challenging regulatory framework in which they
operate and ensure that they are conversant and compliant.”

Corpedia President Tim Erblich stated, “Board members are increasingly aware
of and interested in compliance issues as a result of high-profile compliance
failures covered regularly in the news and increased interest from regulators,
investors, and insurers. We are excited about the prospects of enhancing our
board and director advisory services and expanding our benchmarking not only
to our network of NYSE Euronext companies, but to any public or private
company board that is striving to improve its governance and effectiveness.”

Diagnostic or to request the complimentary diagnostic, go to www.corpedia.com.
