  FIS Announces Completion of Amendment to Existing Credit Agreement

Business Wire

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- April 23, 2013

Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (“FIS”) (NYSE: FIS), a leading
provider of banking and payments technology, today announced the completion of
an amendment to its existing credit agreement.

The transaction resulted in the increase of FIS’ revolving loan capacity by
$850 million to $2.0 billion and the amendment of certain terms and
conditions, including the removal of provisions regarding the granting of
collateral by FIS and its subsidiaries.

Following the amendment, the unsecured credit agreement totals $4.0 billion in
the aggregate, including $2.0 billion of term loans and $2.0 billion of
revolving loan capacity. The maturity of all obligations under the amended
credit agreement remains unchanged at March 30, 2017. There was no material
change to FIS’ total leverage as a result of the amendment.

The loans under the amended credit agreement are subject to a credit
ratings-based pricing grid (generally LIBOR plus 150 basis points based on the
current credit ratings of FIS).

J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated
and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC acted as joint lead arrangers and joint
bookrunners of the credit agreement.
