ITEM 11. TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF TRADING UNDER REGISTRANTS EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
On May 6, 2003, as required by section 101(i)(2)(E) of the Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, Certegy Inc. received notice from the plan administrator of the Certegy Inc. 401(k) Plan (the Plan) regarding a blackout period during which certain transactions in Plan assets, including in the Certegy Common Stock fund, were to be suspended.
This blackout period began on June 17, 2003 and was originally expected to end on July 31, 2003. Due to the early completion of the change of record keepers for the Plan, the blackout period ended earlier than expected, on July 23, 2003. The blackout period applied to Certegys Common Stock, Par Value $0.01 Per Share and derivative securities thereof, as defined in Regulation BTR promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. During the blackout period, the ability of Plan participants to direct or diversify their investments (including in the Certegy Common Stock fund), obtain a loan from the Plan or obtain a distribution from the Plan was suspended.
Inquiries about the blackout period should be directed to Walter M. Korchun, Corporate Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary, Certegy Inc., 11720 Amber Park Drive, Alpharetta, Georgia 30004, telephone no. (678) 867-8000.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
