NEW YORK, NY - Thomson Reuters (TSX: TRI; NYSE: TRI), the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced it will exercise its right to redeem approximately US$600 million of outstanding debt securities. Three separate series of securities will be redeemed. Thomson Reuters plans to finance the redemptions through the issuance of new debt securities and/or cash balances.

In October 2009, Thomson Reuters will redeem the following securities:

* All C$400,000,000 of its outstanding 6.85% medium term notes (MTNs) due June 1, 2011 (CUSIP No. 88490Z AA2),

* All US$75,000,000 of its outstanding 7.74% notes due December 22, 2010, which were issued in a private placement.

Redemption prices include applicable early repayment premiums as well as accrued and unpaid interest through the redemption dates. The approximately US$600 million of outstanding debt securities to be redeemed reflects the amount expected to be paid by Thomson Reuters after termination of applicable cross currency interest rate swap agreements.

Non-registered holders (banks, brokerage firms or other financial institutions) of the C$400,000,000 6.85% MTNs due 2011 and the US$250,000,000 4.75% notes due 2010 that maintain their interests through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc.
