Thomson Reuters Corporation : Use of Thomson Reuters Eikon Messenger Surges As Companies Adopt Compliance Services

Number of companies using Eikon Messenger's compliance services exceeds
20,000, reflecting market confidence in Thomson Reuters as a source for open,
efficient, and compliant communications amid regulatory scrutiny of messaging
services.

LONDON/NEW YORK, September 14, 2015 -
More than 20,000 companies are now using the compliance services in Thomson
Reuters Eikon Messenger, an indication of growing awareness across the
financial and professional services industries of the need for secure and
compliant instant messaging communications.

Instant messaging is a crucial tool for timely internal and external
communications by financial and other professionals, used particularly for
conducting business, and building and maintaining client relationships.
Recent regulatory and criminal investigations emphasise the ongoing need for
financial and other institutions to actively control, record, archive and
monitor employee messages.

Thomson Reuters Eikon Messenger includes a proprietary bilateral chat function
that restricts group conversations to a maximum of two companies at one time.
This reduces administrative burden and increases efficiency without
compromising control, helping provide increased confidence for risk and
compliance professionals, as well as Eikon Messenger users themselves. Eikon
Messenger also offers full audit trails and transcripts to help companies
comply with the varied global regulations for recordkeeping and transcript
recall. As a result, all Eikon Messenger conversations and content are
recorded, including chat rooms, file sharing, forms and screenshots.

"Since Thomson Reuters introduced the bilateral chat function in March this
year, we have seen a surge in activity on Eikon Messenger as more and more
companies realise the benefits of a secure and compliance-enabling instant
messaging tool," said Yvette Jackson, global head of collaboration services
at Thomson Reuters. "Now, over 75 percent of the millions of messages sent
daily over the network are exchanged between different financial
institutions, reflecting the confidence that our users have in our services.
Firms across the industry are telling us that they want barriers to effective
communication brought down and confidence in the tools that they use rebuilt.
They are increasingly turning to Eikon Messenger to help do all of this."

Eikon Messenger is an open and secure instant messaging collaboration tool for
the global financial community. Available as part of Thomson Reuters Eikon
and as a standalone, free-of-charge application, Eikon Messenger provides
users with access to the world's largest open directory of over 210,000 users
across more than 120 countries.

By running on an open network, Eikon Messenger helps reduce cost and
complexity while simultaneously boosting both efficiency and transparency.
Communicating over open, connected networks can lead to easier implementation
and management of higher compliance standards. The compliance tools in Eikon
Messenger are available to all users at no cost.
