Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI) (the “Company,” “us” or “Pitney Bowes”) today announced it is increasing the Maximum Series Tender Caps and changing the applicable fixed spread pricing term for each of its cash tender offers (the “Offers”) for its 4.875% Medium-Term Notes due 2014 (the “2014 Notes”), 5.000% Notes due 2015 (the “2015 Notes”) and 4.750% Medium-Term Notes due 2016 (the “2016 Notes” and, together with the 2014 Notes and the 2015 Notes, the “Notes”).

The Maximum Series Tender Cap for each of the Offers is being increased as follows: (a) for the 2014 Notes, from $160,000,000 to $200,000,000; (b) for the 2015 Notes, from $100,000,000 to $140,000,000; and (c) for the 2016 Notes, from $50,000,000 to $75,000,000 (each, as increased, the “Maximum Series Tender Cap”).
