(d) On June 15, 2014, the Board of Directors of Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. ("FIS") appointed Ellen Alemany to its Board of Directors to serve until the next annual meeting of shareholders of the Company, or until her earlier death, resignation or removal increasing the number of Directors from ten to eleven.

Alemany began her career in Operations at Chase Manhattan before being recruited to Citibank in 1987. Beginning as Area Head of Citibank's NY Leveraged Capital Group, she grew to CEO of Global Transaction Services at the firm and spent five years on the board of Citigroup North America, Inc.

Providing international leadership as well, Alemany served on the RBS Executive Committee, and served as a consultant to the company until her retirement in 2013. She also served on the Federal Reserve Advisory Board from 2008 to 2010, and has served on the boards of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. since 2011 and CIT Group since January 2014.

Additional information about Alemany is included in the Company's press release issued on June 16, 2014, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

In connection with joining FIS' Board of Directors, Alemany will receive a one-time grant of equity valued at $150,000 with half in the form of performance-based option awards and half in the form of performance-based restricted stock. Alemany will also participate in the compensation and benefit program for non-management directors as described in the Director Compensation section of FIS' Proxy Statement for its Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 28, 2014, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 17, 2014.
