Broadridge and Telligent Team to Deliver Innovative Social Community Software to Improve Shareholder Communications

Major Corporations Utilise Innovative Social Technology to Improve Investor Communications and Channel Validated Feedback

(London, UK) September 22, 2011 Telligent, a leader in social community software for the enterprise, and Broadridge, a technology services company focused on global capital markets today announced they are the first to improve shareholder communication needs with an online social communication platform—Shareholder Forum.

"Shareholder Forum is not just another online finance message board; it's an extension to an investor relations website to engage with validated shareholders," says Mike Mostransky, Senior Product and Community Manager at Broadridge. Broadridge saw the opportunity to improve shareholder communications. Annual shareholder meetings often have underwhelming attendance rates and don't deliver specific information shareholders want to know. Furthermore, corporate boards have no way to easily and regularly communicate with validated investors.

With Shareholder Forum, built on Telligent Community, Broadridge is providing a new way for public companies to facilitate open and transparent investor discussions that improve visibility into shareholder hot topics while protecting investor privacy. Broadridge enables some of the world's largest brands to use its online community to enhance investor relations and communication while maintaining security and privacy standards. Intel, Best Buy and Coca-Cola rely on Shareholder Forum to enrich the investor experience and enable validated shareholders to share ideas anytime, anywhere.

Richard J. Daly, CEO of Broadridge, is proud to provide the company's clients an industry-leading communication solution to increase global investor participation and give shareholders access to directors between annual meetings. Daly adds, "Our new Shareholder Forum makes broader information more readily and more cost-effectively available to boards, management, and shareholders and enhances the overall communications process throughout the year."

Shareholder Forum features many social tools such as Q&A forums, blogs, videos, ratings, surveys and more. Additionally, Telligent's innovative technology easily integrates with Broadridge's existing applications and provides flexible privacy settings so corporations can respect stringent security policies mandated by the SEC.

"Our goal has always been to provide a solid, sustainable and secure platform to support our customers' creative and unique needs for social community software," says Wendy Gibson, Chief Marketing Officer at Telligent. "Connecting corporations to investors in a meaningful social way is a game-changer for the financial services industry. Broadridge is a leader in adopting social technologies in the financial services industry to improve shareholder communications."

Going forward, Broadridge plans to expand its mobile strategy and continue to evolve its Shareholder Forum communities, allowing clients to benefit from the efficiencies and conveniences of social engagement. Read more about Broadridge's Shareholder Forum in its case study on Telligent.com.

This announcement is being released during Forrester's Content & Collaboration Forum 2011, "Unleash The Mobile Workforce," in Boston. Social communities are appearing and adding value in new and sometimes unexpected places, including the workplace and financial services.

Later this month, Broadridge will showcase its leadership in online communities with a session on "Community in Unexpected Places," best practices for creating a new business by thinking out of the box and deploying social communities, at The Big Social, in Dallas, Texas on September 26 - 28, 2011.
