Highlight of Business Operations:

Major Customer. A significant amount of our revenues is derived from long-term contracts with large clients, including our major customer during 2011, Bank of America Corporation. For the year ended December 31, 2011, Bank of America Corporation accounted for approximately 11.7% of our total revenues. As a result, the loss of Bank of America Corporation, or other large clients, could have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows. See Major Customer and Operating Segments under the Financial Review Section on page 20, and 20 through 23, respectively, and Note 22 on pages 61 through 63 of the Annual Report which are incorporated in this document by reference.

We provide services to our clients worldwide. As a result, our revenues derived from international operations are subject to risk of loss from foreign currency exchange rates. Revenue and profit generated by international operations will increase or decrease compared to prior periods as a result of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. We have not entered into foreign exchange forward contracts to mitigate the risks associated with our foreign operations. In addition, we may become subject to exchange control regulations that might restrict or prohibit the conversion of our foreign currency into U.S. dollars. The occurrence of any of these factors could decrease the value of revenues we receive from international operations and adversely affect our financial position and results of operations. In addition, our revenues derived from international operations are subject to risk of loss as a result of social instability and unfavorable political or diplomatic developments which could negatively impact our financial results.
