Wachovia capital markets chooses ADP’s Gloss Bureau for international processing

New York, NY – January 26, 2004 – ADP Brokerage Services Group, a division of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NYSE:ADP) announced today that Wachovia Capital Markets LLC has signed a multi-year agreement to use ADP Wilco’s Gloss system for its international securities trade processing.

ADP Wilco’s international system solution, the Gloss Bureau will handle Wachovia's trade lifecycle from trade capture through confirmation, position management, settlement and accounting. Traders in Wachovia’s London office will enter fixed-income trades into Gloss and the back office staff in Charlotte, North Carolina will have access to the same system for clearance and risk management.

Wachovia will also use STP Explorer, ADP Wilco’s real-time exception management system, to ensure control of STP workflow and minimize operational risk. STP Explorer proactively alerts users to business exceptions, providing dynamic investigation tools and subsequent transaction resubmission.

Robert Sontag, Executive Vice President, Wachovia commented, “The Gloss Bureau is the standard for international transaction processing. ADP’s outsourcing leadership will enable us to further expand our presence in this market.”

Wachovia is currently using an array of solutions from ADP’s Investor Communication Services including proxy voting and tabulation as well as reorg announcement and prospectus fulfillment. It also uses MBS Expert for mortgage allocation in both the bank and broker/dealer.
