     Guiding Principles for the New DTCC Corporate
     Action Announcement: Event Content (A reminder)

     • Single event ID for the life of the announcement

       • Currently, announcement IDs are based upon
         CUSIP/Activity Code

     • Elimination of DTC function codes

       • Simplify the Event Types and remove „processing‟

     • Provide more information on Options and Payouts

       • Remove Contra CUSIPs

         • Option tracking done by RRG Account
     Guiding Principles for the New DTCC Corporate
     Action Announcement: File Concepts

     • Publish Information in 2 formats

       • ISO15022

       • XML

       *Currently DTC publishes in propriety formats

     • Publish ALL Events in a single file

       * Currently DTC announces within 3 main files: REORG,
       REDEM and DIVANN
     Guiding Principles for the New DTCC Corporate
     Action Announcement: File Concepts

     • Publish Event Details in a single message
       • General event information

       • Option details

       • Payout details

       * Currently DTC provides separate messages per event option

     • Intra-day delivery option for all announcements

       * Currently end of day batch processing
The ISO15022 MT564 (notification) will be primary format and
supplemented, as needed, with the MT568

        Receipt and Delivery of XML will take a similar path but
      without defined XML standards for Corporate Actions, DTC
                 will take a lead with our own format.
     ISO15022 Format: Data mapped where possible, otherwise
     information will be published within the ‘Text’ Blocks

• The additional data will be provided in the Text blocks within MT564
  Sequences D, E and F; mapped to the most appropriate Sequence

• For example:

      • „Chill‟ On/Off Days will be found in Sequence D under the qualifier
        INCO (information Conditions)

      • Tax information will be found in Sequence D under the qualifier
        TAXE (Taxation Conditions)

      • Fractional Share Information on payouts will be found in
        Sequence E under the qualifier TXNR (Narrative Version)

      • Additional information will flow onto the MT568 when the MT564
        10k byte limit is reached
 ISO15022 Format: Data mapped where possible, otherwise
 information will be published within the ‘Text’ Blocks.

 • ISO15022 „text‟ blocks accommodate 10 lines of 35 bytes (10*35x) but can be
   expanded by using tag 70e qualifiers, of which certain qualifiers are

 • Additional data presented with the same name as XML version, for example:

     • „Hearing Date‟ will be shown as <HearingDt> or „Chill Release Day for
       Deposit‟ will be shown as <ChillReleaseDayForDeposit>

 • A single line will consist of only 1 data element name/value, for example:

     • :70E::ADTX//<HearingDt>20060831</>

 • Where the data name and the value exceed 35 characters the data will flow
   into the second line, for example:

     • (Line 1) :70E::INCO//<ChillReleaseDayForDepo
        (Line 2) sit>20060831</>
