STAMFORD, Conn. -- April 10, 2013

Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) today announced that its Management Services
business unit was selected by The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN) in
Houston. Under the authority of the Texas Region 4 Education Service Center
(ESC), the lead agency responsible for the bid, Pitney Bowes Management
Services was awarded a contract for Managed Print Services (MPS). Under this
agreement, state and local government agencies in Texas and other states are
able to purchase MPS solutions from Pitney Bowes using a significantly
streamlined procurement process.

TCPN is a national purchasing cooperative that contracts on behalf of K-12
schools, higher education institutions, local governments and non-profit
organizations in all 50 states. Established to help public entities operate
more economically, TCPN leverages its collective membership to bid and award
contracts, freeing its individual members from having to negotiate on their
own.

“We are excited to partner with TCPN as they expand their portfolio of
offerings to their stakeholders at various levels of government,” said Tim
Healy, vice president, Commercial & Public Sector, Pitney Bowes Management
Services. “Pitney Bowes is a leading provider of innovative managed print
services and has the resources at the ready to help clients customize
solutions to address their unique needs, streamline business processes, and
achieve dramatic cost savings.”

This contract offers TCPN’s 30,000-plus active government and nonprofit
members pre-negotiated pricing for Managed Print Services that leverage the
network’s buying power to deliver lower costs without the challenge of a local
bid process, which is often costly and time consuming.

“TCPN is pleased to partner with Pitney Bowes on a managed print solutions
offering. The Pitney Bowes portfolio of solutions will enable public sector
agencies to better leverage their print spend, to deliver cost savings while
receiving the highest levels of quality,” said Chris Penny, vice president,
Sales, TCPN.
