REUTERS, FACTIVA STRENGTHEN DESKTOP PRODUCTS VIA INTEGRATED CONTENT OFFERING

New York - Reuters (Nasdaq: RTRSY), the global information company, and
Factiva, a Dow Jones and Reuters Company, today announced an expanded
relationship that will increase customer access to Factiva's content through
Reuters products. Under the three-year agreement, selected Factiva content
will be embedded in Reuters financial products, including Reuters 3000Xtra
and Reuters BridgeStation.

The agreement covers two types of Factiva services. Global Press Watch, a
collection of articles from more than 550 national newspapers and 50
national news wires, will be integrated in Reuters products aimed at trading
and investment professionals. Secondly, Knowledge Worker, a five-year
archive of nearly 6000 periodicals, news weeklies, and specialist
publications organized by industry sector, will be a component of Reuters
products for research-intensive financial professionals and investment
advisors. Both services will be included at no additional charge to Reuters
customers. For local-language services, Reuters will integrate Factiva
sources, including newspapers and news wires, in the language of the target
customer base.

Chris Ahearn, President, Reuters Corporates & Media, said: "By leveraging
Reuters strategic investment in Factiva, we are able to offer an integrated
content solution that adds unique value and indispensable information to
Reuters products. The combination of Factiva and Reuters creates an
unmatched level of content to empower the decision-making of our customers.
This is yet another example of Reuters demonstrated ability to maximize the
synergies of its affiliate companies to provide solutions that enhance the
workflow needs of our customers."

Clare Hart, President and Chief Executive Officer, Factiva, said: "Expanding
the availability of Factiva via Reuters products both on and off the trading
floor is a key milestone for Factiva. Our unified approach to delivering
this exceptional collection of content provides Reuters clients with a
competitive advantage and allows them to operate more efficiently. We are
pleased that even more Reuters users are now in a position to get access to
our high-value service."

This announcement builds significantly on Reuters previous distribution
arrangement, which made Factiva available only to Reuters 3000 Xtra. Under
the new agreement Factiva content will be embedded for seamless access
within Reuters products including the latest version of Reuters 3000Xtra
(v4.5) as well as Reuters BridgeStation, domestic products, next-generation
products such as Reuters Knowledge, and future products targeted at
financial professionals.
