(1) The 2007 Omnibus Award Plan was originally adopted by ADP prior to the spin-off and was amended and restated by Broadridge effective August 4, 2008.
(2) This amount consists of stock options which have an average remaining term as of September 30, 2009 of 5.0 years. This amount does not include outstanding unvested Whole Share Awards of: (i) 1,921,656 time-based restricted shares with a weighted-average grant price of $16.37 per share; and (ii) 589,522 performance-based restricted shares with a weighted-average grant price of $15.80 per share. In addition, from the time of the spin-off from ADP and as of September 30, 2009, 2,570,812 stock options have been exercised and 1,285,058 shares of restricted stock have vested.

(3) This price is calculated without taking into account the shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding restricted stock grants that become issuable as those shares vest, without any cash consideration or other payment required for such shares.
(4) This amount includes 794,053 shares that can only be issued as Appreciation Awards such as stock options and SARs, and 1,645,764 shares that can be issued as either Appreciation Awards or Whole Share Awards such as restricted shares and RSUs.

Our board of directors continues to unanimously recommend that you vote FOR approval of the amendment of our 2007 Omnibus Award Plan as described in this supplement and in the proxy statement.

Your vote is important. If you have not already voted your shares, I encourage you to do so at this time.

If you have already voted your shares and do not wish to change your vote, no further action is necessary and your vote will be counted for or against Proposal 3 pursuant to the proxy authority that you previously granted.

However, if you wish to change your vote in light of the discussion of Proposal 3 above, you may revoke your proxy by: (i) voting again by Internet before 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, on November 17, 2009 by visiting; (ii) properly submitting a later-dated proxy by delivering a later-dated proxy card by mail to the Company’s corporate secretary; or (iii) voting again by Internet during the meeting on November 18, 2009 by visiting If you hold your shares through someone else, such as a bank, broker or other nominee, and you desire to revoke your proxy, you should follow the instructions provided by your nominee.

Thank you for your continued support of Broadridge.


By Order of the Board of Directors,
Adam D. Amsterdam
