Bowne Files Form N-MFP on First Day of SEC's Test Filing Program

Test Filing and Web Postings Ensure Invesco Is Prepared for Compliance With Upcoming Money Market Reforms

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  Bowne & Co., Inc. (NYSE: BNE), a leading provider of shareholder and marketing communications services, today announced it has completed the first Form N-MFP test filing on behalf of Invesco, a leading independent global investment manager that provides a wide range of investment strategies and vehicles. The filing is required under the SEC's latest money market disclosure reforms beginning this December. Using its ArcFiling(SM) Solution, Bowne test filed for two of Invesco's twelve money market funds on October 7, 2010, two months before the live filing deadline.

Bowne's ArcFiling solution allows investment managers or their service providers to meet the two primary components of the new SEC regulations: a monthly report of fund holdings and the monthly filing of Form N-MFP. ArcFiling is easy to deploy and greatly reduces the effort and complexity associated with reviewing security information, generating reports, completing the Form N-MFP, and successfully filing with the SEC. More than 60% of U.S. money market funds have selected ArcFiling to meet the Form N-MFP requirements.

Bowne's ArcFiling Form N-MFP solution is unique in that it is the only dedicated solution built specifically to address the latest SEC money market reforms. ArcFiling is part of Bowne's new, long-term and overarching solution for investment management funds, FundSuiteArc(SM). FundSuiteArc is a web-based platform for the creation, management, reporting and distribution of the full range of fund disclosure documents including shareholder reports, prospectuses, regulatory filings, web content and other fund documents. 

"The pace of regulatory reform presents increasing challenges for the investment management industry," said Bill Penders, President of Bowne. "Our goal with ArcFiling and Bowne's other solutions is to equip investment managers and their service providers with the tools they need to comply with regulatory deadlines."
