November 14, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (NYSE:FIS) today announced that The Bankers Bank, the largest organization dedicated solely to correspondent banking in the U.S., has signed an exclusive agreement to remarket FIS' Corporate Capture and Remittance Processing payment services and Network Services. In addition, FIS will be the exclusive provider of credit card processing services to The Bankers Bank clients. This partnership expands the existing strategic relationship between FIS and The Bankers Bank.

The Bankers Bank is a leading national correspondent bank chartered specifically to serve the needs of community financial institutions across the United States. The Bankers Bank currently serves more than 1,400 community financial institutions.

"The Bankers Bank believes in the power of partnership," said Tom Bryan, president and chief executive officer of The Bankers Bank. "When we started in 1986, we wanted to develop a superior suite of solutions for community banks. Our strategic alliance with FIS was formed 20 years ago to offer our community bank clients unrivaled core processing and item processing solutions. The expansion of our relationship with FIS for corporate payments is very complementary to our overall payment solutions strategy and allows The Bankers Bank to round out the suite of leading technology solutions that we provide to community banks."

The Bankers Bank's strategic partnership with FIS has been one of strategic growth for both companies over the last 20 years. Most recently, the financial institution converted to FIS' HORIZON(TM) core processing platform in 2005. Under the new agreement, The Bankers Bank will now exclusively leverage two of FIS' strongest payment processing platforms.

"With the largest footprint of networked capturing facilities (48 capture centers) and our large-volume credit card processing capabilities, FIS is best-equipped to provide leading payment solutions to clients of The Bankers Bank - particularly as it continues to expand its presence," said Gary Norcross, president of FIS' Integrated Financial Solutions division. "The comprehensive payment processing solutions provide financial institutions with faster funds, greater efficiency, reduced risks and more options from a single provider."
