LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Broadridge Financial
Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) today announced that Vienna-based Raiffeisen Bank

implemented Broadridge's PROactive Reconciliation Solution across six of the
bank's regional subsidiaries to fully automate reconciliation processing.

As part of Broadridge's proven ability to address increasingly complex client
needs through technology and operations solutions, PROactive allows RBI to
increase operational control and achieve more efficient processing on a
single, standard platform throughout its network banks in Poland, Bosnia and
Herzegovina, Kosovo, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania. These represent both new
implementations and those migrating to the latest release of Broadridge's
highly-configurable, multi-asset solution PROactive Reconciliation to fully
automate exception management.

Through its shared service center located in Romania, Centralized Raiffeisen
International Services & Payments S.R.L. (CRISP), RBI is pursuing a strategy
to consolidate the reconciliations processing of its operations across
multiple European locations into a centralized hub and intends to migrate
remaining international network banks onto a single installation. A key
element of the project has been to shift all processing from locally installed
stand-alone systems onto an enterprise-wide platform, which is offered by
Broadridge on a choice of database technology.

"The deployment flexibility of PROactive has allowed us to standardize our
central infrastructure for enterprise-wide reconciliation processing and
maximize operational efficiency across multiple regions," said Pierre Brisse,
General Manager, CRISP. "We are seeing high quality results from the
solution's advanced automation and workflow, including substantial
improvements to our automated matching rates and the ability to quickly
onboard additional reconciliation types, such as ATM and internal account
reconciliations."

Mr. Brisse added, "The implementation of PROactive has enabled us to provide
an ASP service internally and across multiple locations. We welcome the
continued support from Broadridge in helping us achieve such strategic
measures and become more self-sufficient in the management of our
reconciliation processing."

Jose Contin, General Manager, EMEA and Americas for Broadridge's PROactive
Solutions, said, "This project is further affirmation of Broadridge's growing
footprint in Central and Eastern Europe. More and more, clients like RBI are
moving towards a centralized reconciliations service, and we are already
seeing how the strategy is enhancing the bank's transparency and operational
control while enabling significant improvements in risk management and cost
efficiency."
