Comverse, Inc. Spin-Off And Share Distribution Expected On October 31, 2012

Beginning on October 18, 2012 and continuing up to and including the October 31, 2012 distribution date for the spin-off, CTI common shares will trade in two markets on NASDAQ: a "regular-way" market and an "ex-distribution" market. CTI common shares held as of October 18, 2012 and sold in the regular-way market after October 18, 2012 and on or before October 31, 2012 will not be entitled to receive the shares of CNS's common stock in connection with the share distribution. CTI common shares held as of October 22, 2012 and sold in the ex-distribution market after October 22, 2012 and on or before October 31, 2012 will still receive the shares of CNS's common stock in the share distribution.

The Form 10 registration statement includes information regarding the spin-off that will be mailed to CTI shareholders shortly. As a result of the SEC declaring the Form 10 effective, CNS is now subject to the information and reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and will file periodic reports, proxy statements and other required information with the SEC. CNS intends to post these materials to the Investor Relations portion of its website promptly after filing with the SEC.

No action is required by CTI shareholders as of the record date to receive their shares of the common stock of CNS in the spin-off. The distribution agent, transfer agent, and registrar for CNS common stock will be American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC ("AST"). For questions relating to the transfer or mechanics of the stock distribution, shareholders may contact AST, 6201 15 th Avenue, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY, 11219 or via phone at 651-379-9102.
