For the past several years, as part of our ongoing efforts to improve efficiency, control costs and minimize the impact on the environment, NCR has posted its annual report and proxy statement (also known as annual meeting materials) on the investor page of its web site and notified employees by e-mail when and where the materials were posted. This year, NCR is also utilizing new Securities and Exchange Commission rules which allow us to provide access to our annual meeting materials to all stockholders on the Internet, thereby further reducing costs and the impact on the environment of printing large quantities of the annual meeting materials. Because of this change, you will be directed to an external website rather than the NCR website.
If you are a U.S.-based employee with an NCR e-mail account and Internet access and:
you should have received an e-mail message on March 18 describing how to access the 2007 Annual Report, the 2008 Proxy Statement and your proxy card on the Internet. The email directed you to http://www.investorEconnect.com, where the annual meeting materials can be accessed, viewed and printed at any time at your convenience. You will not receive paper copies of the annual meeting materials unless you specifically request them.
You have the option of authorizing your proxy to vote at the annual meeting online or through a special telephone voting service. Just like votes cast using paper proxy cards, votes cast over the Internet or telephone are tabulated in a secure manner by an independent third party. The email message you received gave you the information required to authorize your proxy. Please note that you will need your pre-assigned PIN # to access the online voting system. Your pre-assigned PIN # is the last 4 digits of your social security number, unless you elected to change your PIN # previously in a prior year.
The use of this electronic delivery program is consistent with the companys objective of improving efficiencies, controlling costs and minimizing the impact on the environment. We appreciate your willingness to use the electronic option to vote and receive future stockholder information. Whatever your choice, we urge you to vote your shares.
Attached is a document containing answers to some of the questions you may have about this process.

However, we encourage you to receive these materials electronically to help reduce printing and postage costs associated with the annual report and proxy statement. These materials will be made available on the Internet at http://www.investorEconnect.com and can be accessed, viewed and printed 24-hours-a-day, 7 days-per-week.

Please note that you will need your pre-assigned PIN # to access this system. Your pre-assigned PIN # is the last 4 digits of your social security number, unless you elected to change your PIN # previously in a prior year.

Does electronic delivery apply to NCR stock that I have in my brokerage account? No, this applies only to shares that you may hold directly in your own name, or through a company-sponsored or administered plan such as the NCR Savings Plan, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan or the Direct Stock Purchase Plan. If you want to take advantage of a similar method of electronic delivery for NCR stock held in a brokerage account, please log on to http://www.icsdelivery.com/ncr.
Does electronic delivery apply to NCR stock options that I hold? No, as explained above, this applies only to shares that you may hold directly in your own name or through company-sponsored or administered plans. Stock options give you the right to purchase shares, but do not give you voting rights because you do not actually own shares until you exercise your right to purchase shares.
