Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On October 4, 2013, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (the "Company") made available to its stockholders its fiscal year 2013 annual report to stockholders (the "Annual Report") which included the Chief Executive Officer's letter to stockholders (the "Letter to Stockholders"). The Letter to Stockholders is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

The Company's results in the Annual Report are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") except where otherwise noted. In certain circumstances, results have been presented in the Annual Report including the Chief Executive Officer's Letter to Stockholders (the "Letter to Stockholders") that are not generally accepted accounting principles measures ("Non-GAAP"). These Non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's reported results.

With regard to statements in the Annual Report including the Letter to Stockholders that include certain Non-GAAP financial measures, the earnings, earnings per share, and earnings guidance measures are adjusted to exclude the impact of certain significant non-recurring events from our GAAP results. In addition, Free cash flows is a Non-GAAP measure and is defined as Net cash flows provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures and software purchases.

The Company believes Non-GAAP information helps investors understand the effect of these non-recurring events on reported results and provides a better representation of our actual performance. These Non-GAAP measures are indicators that management uses to provide additional meaningful comparisons between current results and prior reported results, and as a basis for planning and forecasting for future periods.

Set forth below is a reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures referenced in the Annual Report to the comparable GAAP measures.

All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report and are expressly qualified in their entirety by reference to the factors discussed in the 2013 Annual Report. These risks include: the success of Broadridge in retaining and selling additional services to its existing clients and in obtaining new clients; Broadridge's reliance on a relatively small number of clients, the continued financial health of those clients, and the continued use by such clients of Broadridge's services with favorable pricing terms; changes in laws and regulations affecting Broadridge's clients or the investor communication services provided by Broadridge; declines in participation and activity in the securities markets; any material breach of Broadridge security affecting its clients' customer information; the failure of Broadridge's outsourced data center services provider to provide the anticipated levels of service; a disaster or other significant slowdown or failure of Broadridge's systems or error in the performance of Broadridge's services; overall market and economic conditions and their impact on the securities markets; Broadridge's failure to keep pace with changes in technology and demands of its clients; Broadridge's ability to attract and retain key personnel; the impact of new acquisitions and divestitures; and competitive conditions.
