17 DTCC Confidential17DTCC Confidential Cost Basis Reporting

18 DTCC Confidential18DTCC Confidential Cost Basis Reporting The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 contains requirements for financial intermediaries to perform cost basis reporting. The requirements will be phased in over a three year period beginning in 2011. The effective dates of these phases are as follows: – January 1, 2011 for securities transactions (e.g, equities) – January 1, 2012 for mutual funds and dividend reinvestment plans – January 1, 2013 for financial instruments such as debt securities and options

19 DTCC Confidential19DTCC Confidential Cost Basis Reporting – Key Challenges Recordkeeping Existing systems will need to be enhanced to record and store basis information, including bifurcating books to distinguish between positions acquired pre and post legislation effective date. Upgrading Calculation Algorithms and Affected Systems Enhancements begin with upgrades to cost basis calculators to be compliant with the new regulations and can extend into many other systems

20 DTCC Confidential20DTCC Confidential Cost Basis Reporting - Key Challenges Account Transfers Financial intermediaries systems’ also require the ability to transfer and receive cost basis information on any financial transactions that involve the transfer or movement of a security from one financial intermediary to another. Corporate Action Data Issuers will be required to provide a description of the action, the quantitative effect on basis and contact information, within 45 days of the action.

21 DTCC Confidential21DTCC Confidential Cost Basis – DTCC Role Account Transfers Several industry committees are working with DTCC to define business requirements – Input from transfer agents, SIFMA account transfer group, mutual funds Cost Basis Reporting Service (CBRS) will be expanded as the “hub” for the industry Corporate Action Data Possible opportunity to assist issuers in announcement area

22 DTCC Confidential22DTCC Confidential Improving Issuer to Investor Communications Corporate Actions

23 DTCC Confidential23DTCC Confidential Statement of Direction (DTCC, SWIFT and XBRL US) The goal is to promote straight ‐ through processing (STP) of information from issuers through to investors and substantially reduce the market risks and costs associated with the corporate action announcement process. To meet this goal DTCC, SWIFT and XBRL US have joined forces to improve issuer to investor communications for corporate action announcements in the U.S. market: – XBRL will be implemented to enable issuers and offerors to identify (“tag”) key corporate actions data in offering documents; – XBRL tags used by issuers and offerors will be kept fully aligned with the data dictionary used by the industry under the ISO 20022 global standard, and – DTCC will adopt the ISO 20022 global standard for corporate action messages to U.S. market participants

24 DTCC Confidential24DTCC Confidential Why the Focus on Corporate Actions? Corporate Actions continues to be one of the most risky and costly areas in financial services Estimated billions in losses due to misinterpretation of data Limitations in the Current Corporate Actions Messaging Standards E.g. Incomplete list of Event Types and Required Data No Unique Identifier for the event Inefficient dissemination of data Inefficient Regulation

25 DTCC Confidential25DTCC Confidential Why Should You Care? Your Shareholders Suffer Intent of offer is subject to misinterpretation and errors due to manual manipulation of data Offer details are not always disseminated timely Compressed timeframes for elections Higher transaction fees for investor due to manual processing

27 DTCC Confidential27DTCC Confidential Why Now? The Perfect Storm Financial Market Turmoil Perfect Storm With the economic down turn, there is an increased focus to reduce the risks and improve transparency through any means possible, including increased regulation Industry Initiatives Converging on ISO 20022 SWIFT is driving the next generation standard, ISO 20022 which builds upon the success of ISO 15022, and DTCC’s ‘CA Re-engineering’ project will service the entire US market, will use new ISO 20022 messages in favor of its existing legacy files Customer Pressure With the need to do ‘more with less’, there is customer demand for solutions that offer high STP, that align with standards and that use a universal ‘unique ID’ XBRL Maturity XBRL has been institutionalized with the SEC mandate for the GAAP quarterly financial reporting, and with the replacement of EDGAR with XBRL-based IDEA system. XBRL for CAs, based upon ISO20022, is a solution for issuers to electronically tag data within reports directly at the source. Enforcement may be garnered via regulatory mandate

28 DTCC Confidential28DTCC Confidential Step 1- Drive the ‘next generation’ industry standard for corporate actions ISO 20022 creation – Current ISO 15022 standards, in its present form, does not cover all CA event types, does not cover all necessary data elements and is ‘too flexible’ – SWIFT Standards, infrastructure providers and Market Practice Groups are actively working with ISO to implement the next generation standard, ISO 20022 – The standard will be global, all-encompassing and holistic. Missing data elements will be added, and there are a handful of structural, or level, changes that will be needed ISO 20022 enforcement – DTCC will become an early adopter of ISO 20022 as part of ‘CA Re-engineering’ – a major, multi-year, project spanning announcements, elections to payments – Enforcement of the standard will be achieved as existing legacy files will be decommissioned on, or before, 2015, after running in parallel with the new ISO messages

29 DTCC Confidential29DTCC Confidential Step 2- Implement a registration system to issue a ‘Unique ID’ and allow additional validation Unique ID – DTCC will create a ‘unique ID’ process to explicitly label all corporate action announcements from the beginning, thus eliminating ambiguity in the ‘update’ process and the identification of an event between all parties – It will act in the same way that static security data is referenced, e.g. ISIN – We will build a registration system which will issue a Unique ID as part of the XBRL process Additional validation for the Issuer – The XBRL taxonomy will map with the ISO 20022 standard and, as such, automatically includes some validation, e.g. data types – The registration system will allow for additional validation, if needed by the Issuer, e.g. are rates within historical norms and are dates logical – Validation exceptions will be flagged back to the issuer before allowing dissemination of the event to the open market

30 DTCC Confidential30DTCC Confidential Step 3- Drive issuer-based data tagging with XBRL The XBRL revolution – DTCC is driving the implementation of XBRL for corporate actions, enabling issuers to electronically ‘tag’ data from within MS Word, when preparing the source document – The tagged data is ‘embedded’ within the saved pdf or doc file – The issuer, as they write the press release or prospectus, follows the same process as they do today, except that they tag the key data – DTCC, SWIFT Standards and ISO are working with XBRL US to seamlessly align XBRL taxonomy with ISO 20022 XBRL enforcement – DTCC, SWIFT and XBRL US will leverage the expanding adoption of XBRL in the US, a result of the SEC mandate for GAAP quarterly financial reporting starting with the largest 500 public companies in June 2009, to promote the implementation of the XBRL corporate actions taxonomy

31 DTCC Confidential31DTCC Confidential Alignment to deliver sizable benefits, from issuer to investor Benefits for Issuers Ensures that the intent and content of the originating offer are clear to the investor, without the fear of misinterpretation due to manual manipulation Ensures that the details are conveyed in a timely fashion Issuers will incur marginal additional effort in tagging the data, but will follow exactly the same process as they undertake today Benefits for Financial Services Ensures that interpretation, re- keying and manual exceptions are significantly reduced Results in lower risk exposure caused when an investor makes a decision based on incorrect information, estimated at ~$10B pa 1 Reduces need for manual overhead, estimated at estimated at ~$10B pa 2 Lower costs and risks will lower fees to investors Benefits for Investors Allows investors to make decisions with guaranteed accurate information from ‘source’ document without 3rd party manual interpretation Allows for more time to respond as Custodians & IMs artificially compress deadlines to compensate for the time they need to manually process elective information Lowers costs as transaction fees should reduce Implementing ISO 20022, a Unique ID and XBRL will eliminate significant costs and risks, and realize STP for corporate actions Note 1: Oxera: “Corporate Actions: What are the Risks?”, May 2004.
