Fiserv CBS Worldwide Continues to Build Momentum in the Multi-Billion-Dollar Bank Market; Successful Conversions Follow Superior Sales PerformanceLAKE MARY, Fla.--April 19, 2005--Fiserv, Inc. (Nasdaq:FISV) today announced that its Fiserv CBS Worldwide unit - on the heels of 24 months of high-volume sales activity - completed nine extensive conversions in 2004 and has scheduled 11 additional conversions for 2005.

The busy conversion schedule includes both new clients moving to the Comprehensive Banking System (CBS) as well as existing clients bringing newly acquired banks onto their CBS platforms. During one weekend in February, Fiserv CBS Worldwide completed very successful conversions for $13.7 billion Ohio Savings Bank and $4.7 billion Central Pacific Bank/City Bank, while also supporting $56.5 billion North Fork Bank as the institution converted newly acquired GreenPoint Financial.

Dave Santi, U.S. president of CBS Worldwide, said that with strong sales momentum over the past two years, the organization took steps to fully prepare itself to simultaneously manage multiple large and complex conversion projects.

"Fiserv CBS Worldwide led the industry in new core sales to institutions with more than $1 billion in assets in both 2003 and 2004," said Santi. "Our next challenge was to turn those new sales into smooth conversions and happy clients. We have been very pleased with our ability to do that."
