 Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters and Capita Company Secretarial
    Services team up to provide Online Directors Training and Development

eLearning Solution to help directors understand their statutory duties and
best practice

London, March 27, 2013 - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of
intelligent information for businesses and professionals, and Capita Company
Secretarial Services, the UK's largest professional services company
secretarial team, today announced the launch of a suite of eLearning solutions
for directors' training and certification. The courses will provide an
overview of the key directorial roles, responsibilities and penalties under
company law, helping organisations to safeguard against shortcomings in
corporate compliance and navigate the increasingly complex regulatory
landscape.

The launch of the eLearning solutions comes at a time of increased focus on
the conduct of directors. Serving all levels of directors, the courses provide
a user friendly and effective way to embed subsidiary governance across group
structures. They will be delivered online via the web so that materials are
readily available and can be accessed on the move to serve increasingly mobile
and international management teams. Unlike other training courses, there are
optional modules to suit listed, unlisted and regulated companies and bespoke
modules can also be created if required. In addition, the courses provide a
crucial audit trail for regulators to demonstrate and confirm an
organisation's commitment to compliance and best practice.

"Thomson Reuters Governance, Risk & Compliance business first partnered with
Capita Company Secretarial Services in 2011 to provide eLearning around the
Bribery Act," said Mark Schlageter, managing director, Governance, Risk &
Compliance, Thomson Reuters. "The volume and pace of regulatory change and the
start of big implementation programmes for major complex legislation continue
to pile diverse pressures on compliance functions and boards of directors. It
is therefore essential that the effective management of risk and compliance
has key contribution not only from a firm's compliance function but also from
its board and directors. We look forward to building on our partnership with
Capita Company Secretarial Services as we launch this exciting programme."

"We know, from speaking to company directors on a regular basis, that recent
reporting and other regulatory changes are making their roles increasingly
complex and subject to scrutiny," said Georgina Morgan, director, Capita
Company Secretarial Services. "This online training can be completed when the
demands of the 'day' job are less evident and will help to ensure that senior
staff are fully aware of their duties under the Companies Act and related
law." 

Thomson Reuters Governance, Risk & Compliance business dynamically connects
business transactions, strategy and operations to the ever-changing regulatory
environment, enabling firms to manage business risk. Thomson Reuters Accelus
is a comprehensive suite of solutions specifically built to address the
governance, risk and compliance challenges faced by the boardroom, and its
