Financial Times Now Available on Bloomberg Professional

Business Wire

LONDON & NEW YORK -- December 06, 2010

The Financial Times and Bloomberg today announced that FT customers with a
corporate licence will be able to access Financial Times journalism via the
Bloomberg Professional® service. The new service, starting today, will be
available to more than 295,000 Bloomberg subscribers, which include leading
financial and business executives around the world.

The Financial Times multi-platform licences allow professionals to access FT
journalism in the most convenient way for their work and over 900 corporate
customers have already purchased rights to read FT journalism via a number of
third party technology platforms. Corporate licences are a flexible
arrangement whereby companies pay once for rights to access Financial Times
journalism, independent of the technology or service used.

Customers of the Bloomberg Professional service that do not have an FT licence
will see headlines of FT articles that link through to FT.com. Registered
users of FT.com can access up to 10 articles per month at no cost. Unlimited
access to FT articles requires a premium or corporate subscription.

Caspar de Bono, Managing Director B2B at the Financial Times said: “This
agreement opens up another large and hugely significant channel to the FT and
means that the mutual customers of the FT and the Bloomberg Professional
service will have instant access to the FT’s news and analysis to help them
make more informed decisions. The FT aims to make its content available
wherever our customers choose to access it, whether that’s in print, on a
mobile or via the Bloomberg Professional service.”

"Bloomberg's goal is to serve as the ultimate news platform for business
professionals, combining our own content with top sources from around the
globe," said Brian Rooney, core product manager for news, research, message
and mobile applications for the Bloomberg Professional Service. "The Financial
Times is a valuable addition to the unmatched set of content available through
our unique news searching, alerting and analytic tools."

Notes to Editors

The Financial Times introduced a direct, multi-platform licence in April 2008
for groups of ten or more users to have unlimited access to FT journalism via
FT.com, FT mobile apps and third party platforms (a list is available at
www.ft.com/corporate). The price of the FT licence is based on the number of
users not the technology platforms used to access the content. The FT licence
does not include a subscription to third party services such as the Bloomberg
Professional® service.

FT articles are available on FT.com for free on a limited basis. Registered
users can access up to 10 articles a month at no cost. Unlimited access
requires a subscription. This can be done either by purchasing a single
subscription to FT.com for an individual’s personal use. Or by buying a
corporate subscription for many people to have access to FT journalism.
