NCR Completes Teradata Spin Off



    DAYTON, OHIO, October 1 /CNW/ - NCR Corporation (NYSE:  NCR) today
announced that it has completed the previously announced spin off of its
Teradata Data Warehousing business through the distribution of a tax-free
stock dividend to its stockholders. NCR distributed one share of common stock
of Teradata for each share of NCR common stock to NCR stockholders of record
as of the close of business on Sept. 14, 2007.

    As a result of that distribution, NCR no longer owns shares of Teradata,
and Teradata is an independent company. Beginning Oct. 1, 2007, Teradata
common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and trades under
the symbol "TDC."

    "I am extremely grateful for the tremendous efforts all of our employees
have made over the past nine months to realize this momentous event," said
Bill Nuti, chairman, chief executive officer and president of NCR. "As
Teradata moves forward as an independent company, we wish the talented
Teradata team all the best as they continue to build on their position as a
global leader in the enterprise data warehousing market.

    "This is a very exciting time for NCR as we guide businesses through the
evolving world of customer interactions - where point-of-service kiosks,
Internet and mobile devices are rapidly becoming channels of choice for
consumers," Nuti added. "NCR will leverage our expertise in the emerging
self-service market and our market-leading technologies, including automated
teller machines, retail assisted point-of-sale and self-checkout systems,
automated bill payment systems and airline, hotel and hospital
self-check-in/out kiosks, to enable businesses to better serve their customers
how, when and where they choose."
