RR Donnelley Introduces New Mobile Application for Broker/Dealers and Financial Advisors

12/16/2009

Latest Mobile Application Enhances Financial Services Companies' Selling Channels By Streamlining Communications And Enabling Compliance With SEC Regulations

CHICAGO, Dec 17, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (NASDAQ:RRD) today announced another in its series of customer-facing mobile applications. The application, first in a planned mobile suite for broker/dealers and financial advisors to use in complying with SEC regulations, is an enhancement to the company's proprietary RightProspectus® document repository -- a convenient way to distribute and track the delivery and receipt of both print and e-mail versions of investor communications, including prospectuses, Statements of Additional Information (SAIs) and supplements.

"RightProspectus is an advanced, easy-to-use system that tracks and updates documents automatically as changes are filed with the SEC, ensuring constant access to current and accurate prospectuses," said Tom Juhase, President of RR Donnelley's global investment markets offering. "This streamlines prospectus delivery and makes it easier to remain in compliance. The RightProspectus document repository platform's electronic delivery capabilities provide significant cost saving opportunities and allow RR Donnelley to serve the entire life cycle of prospectus delivery."

In the past, for broker/dealers and financial advisors to have a prospectus at point-of-sale, it meant planning ahead to have a printed prospectus available when they met a client. It was also difficult to know if the printed prospectus on hand was the most current. RR Donnelley has developed the RightProspectus mobile application to address these needs.

"The RightProspectus mobile application makes it easier than ever to confirm a prospectus delivery," added Eric Johnson, Senior Vice President, RR Donnelley. "The document repository provides intermediaries with access to the most current prospectuses on almost any mobile device. This ability supports revenue growth by increasing the speed with which they can bring products to market, enhances a retail channel's flexibility to access any product in their suite while in the field, and reduces the costs associated with duplicate delivery of prospectuses at point-of-sale."

The RightProspectus mobile application allows broker/dealers and financial advisors to access the RightProspectus repository which contains over 23,000 share class documents. Using the resident e-mail application, the broker/dealers and financial advisors can send the link from the repository to the client, and every aspect of the communication can be tracked and reported in case of an audit.

More information about the RightProspectus document repository is available at www.financial.rrd.com.
