Cendant Corporation announced that it has amended its contractual arrangements withTrilegiant Corporation pursuant to which Cendant will assume responsibility for marketing to new members of its membership clubs as well as servicing existing members.

The transaction is not expected to have any material impact on Cendant`s 2004 revenue or pre-tax earnings, as Trilegiant`s results have been consolidated within Cendant since July 1, 2003 pursuant to Financial Interpretation 46, issued last year by the Financial Accounting Standards


This transaction is predicated in part upon an unintended consequence of FIN 46 and our very strong focus on effective corporate governance, said Cendant`s Chairman, CEO and President, Henry R. Silverman. Our board of directors, our CFO and I believe that the consolidation of a unit within our financial results requires the direct control and supervision of the

operations of that unit by Cendant.

Cendant has created Cendant Marketing Group to coordinate the activities of its two direct marketing units, Progeny Marketing Innovations and Trilegiant. Cendant Marketing Group will be part of the Company`s Financial Services Division.
