    Shares ceased trading on London Stock Exchange and Nasdaq




    
    NEW YORK, Sept. 10 /CNW/ -- Thomson Reuters (TSX: TRI; NYSE:   TRI), the
world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and
professionals, announced that it completed the unification of its dual listed
company (DLC) structure today. Each Thomson Reuters PLC ordinary share was
exchanged for one Thomson Reuters Corporation common share, and each Thomson
Reuters PLC American Depositary Share (ADS) was exchanged for six Thomson
Reuters Corporation common shares.

    Effective today, the company's common shares are listed on the Toronto
Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange (symbol: TRI). The last trading
day for Thomson Reuters PLC ordinary shares on the London Stock Exchange and
ADSs on Nasdaq was yesterday. The DLC unification received overwhelming
support from shareholders as well as UK court approval.

    To facilitate the holding of shares in the UK through CREST (the UK
electronic settlement system), former Thomson Reuters PLC shareholders were
issued Depositary Interests (DIs). DIs represent entitlements to Thomson
Reuters Corporation common shares and have the same voting and economic
interests as common shares. However, DIs are not traded on the TSX or NYSE.
Effective today, former Thomson Reuters PLC shareholders who received DIs are
able to convert their DIs into common shares by contacting Computershare in
Canada and the United States by phone at 1.877.624.5999 or by e-mail at
globaltransactionteam@computershare.com, and in the United Kingdom and
elsewhere outside of Canada/United States by phone at 44.870.702.0003, ext.
1075, or by e-mail at allukglobaltransactionteam@computershare.co.uk. Thomson
Reuters will pay all applicable conversion fees between September 10, 2009 and
December 10, 2009. Additional information about the DIs is available in the
"Investor Relations" section of www.thomsonreuters.com. Thomson Reuters
expects settlement of newly-issued common shares and DIs to occur on September
14, 2009.

    Thomson Reuters shareholders of record as of August 21, 2009 are entitled
to receive a dividend of US$0.28 per share on September 15, 2009. Due to the
timing of the closing of the unification, Thomson Reuters PLC shareholders who
previously enrolled in the company's dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP) will
receive this dividend in cash. Enrollment information for the Thomson Reuters
Corporation DRIP is available in the "Investor Relations" section of
www.thomsonreuters.com.

    The CUSIP and ISIN numbers for Thomson Reuters Corporation common shares
and DIs are identical and are as follows:


    
                                   CUSIP Number               ISIN Number
