Fidelity National Financial MLS Solutions Transfers Canadian Print Operations to U.S. Facility

February 1, 2005

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (NYSE: FNF) announced today that its Fidelity MLS Solutions division has transitioned the balance of its MLS print operations from Canada to Fidelity's Olathe, Kansas facility to centralize its MLS technology operations.

"Fidelity MLS Solutions prints MLS books for approximately 230 of its more than 360 MLS customers on a monthly basis," said Beverly Faull, SVP and General Manager of Fidelity National MLS Systems and Solutions. "Since less than 20 of these monthly books were printed in Canada, we believe it is beneficial to combine these operations and manage all printing and on-line operations from Kansas," she said. "By combining all of our MLS operations, we will be better positioned to provide our clients with the most convenient access to our wide array of MLS solutions," said Faull.

Faull says that book production for the vast majority of Fidelity's customers will not be affected by this transition. However, a few of the books printed in Canada were derived from non-Fidelity MLS systems, requiring additional programming and communication with those service providers. These efforts are currently underway, but additional time may be needed to finalize the transitioning of those MLS books.
