    Business Editors

    ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 5, 2005--RSM McGladrey Employer Services announced today that it acquired Ceridian's SourceWeb HR/payroll and self-service product and existing SourceWeb base of over 800 small and mid-size business customers throughout the United States.
    The acquisition establishes RSM McGladrey Employer Services as one of the leading providers of integrated payroll, benefits administration, HR data management and brokerage services to small and mid-size businesses.
    "This acquisition directly benefits small and mid-sized businesses throughout the United States," said Robert Digby, president of RSM McGladrey Employer Services. "We are now positioned better than ever to offer a full suite of competitively priced payroll and benefits services, backed up by outstanding customer service."
    The decision to sell SourceWeb enables Ceridian to streamline delivery of its small business solutions and concentrate resources on other HR/payroll platforms.
    "We will be working with RSM McGladrey Employer Services to ensure a smooth transition," said Robert H. "Bo" Ewald, president of Ceridian Human Resource Solutions.

    Over the next nine months RSM McGladrey Employer Services will absorb many of Ceridian's SourceWeb employees, thus providing continuity of service to clients.
