Accenture and Acxiom Join Forces to Help Companies Better Leverage Customer Information to Improve Business Results

Relationship to help clients more effectively obtain, analyze and apply customer data

NEW YORK and LITTLE ROCK, Ark.; Dec. 17, 2003 -- Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and Acxiom (Nasdaq: ACXM) have joined forces to help clients in the retail financial services, telecommunications, consumer products and government sectors better use customer information to improve business results.

A provision that bars corporate expatriates from Homeland Security Department contracts was introduced by Senator Levin and passed in the 2004 DHS appropriations bill. The provision only applies to companies which reincorporated after 2002. (The loophole was inserted into the appropriations bill during the closed-door House/Senate conference committee mark-up, ensuring that the ban would not affect a $10 billion DHS contract already given to Bermuda-based Accenture.) The House 2004 Homeland Security Department appropriations bill was passed by a 234-197 vote that largely broke down along partisan lines. The House version, which included the Accenture loophole, reversed a House Appropriations Committee 35 to 17 vote in favor of an amendment introduced by Rep. DeLauro (D-CA) that would block corporate tax traitors from receiving Homeland Security Department contracts.
