          Fiserv, Inc. and The Chase Manhattan Corporation Announce
          New Strategic Alliance Agreement
          
          
          Brookfield, Wisconsin, April 4, 1996--Fiserv, Inc. and The
          Chase Manhattan Corporation announced today an agreement
          under which Fiserv will provide experienced check processing
          personnel to staff Chase's item processing sites in Brooklyn,
          Rochester and Syracuse, N.Y., for up to three years.  The new
          agreement is in response to the recently completed merger of
          Chase and Chemical Banking Corporation, which was effective
          March 31, 1996.  This agreement, which will initially generate
          $20 million of annual revenue for Fiserv, will replace the
          strategic alliance between Fiserv and Chase signed in February
          1995.  For the early termination of the original agreement, Fiserv
          will receive a fee, net of certain related charges, of
          approximately $15 million pre-tax, which Fiserv plans to
          recognize ratably over a 14-month period ending February 1997.
          
          With this new arrangement, Fiserv will assist the new Chase in
          merging its check processing platforms, creating an internal
          operation.  "This agreement supports the implementation of our
          strategy to establish enterprise-wide operating platforms
          throughout our businesses," said Denis O'Leary, Chase
          Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer.  "It
          gives us the flexibility to leverage the scale of the new Chase and
          continue building our image-enabled item processing platform."
          
          "This new alliance is a positive arrangement for all parties
          involved," said Leslie M. Muma, Vice Chairman, President and
          Chief Operating Officer of Fiserv.  "Fiserv will support the item
          processing integration of what will soon be the nation's largest
          bank.  In turn, the new Chase gains an experienced service
          partner dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of customer
          satisfaction during the merger process.  In addition, our strong
          relationship with the new Chase management team has the
          potential to lead to additional new business."
          
          According to Donald L. Boudreau, Chase Vice Chairman, "We
          have been pleased with the results of our original agreement with
          Fiserv.  They have exceeded our expectations as a true
          technology partner, while improving service quality and
          responsiveness at our existing operations.  We are confident that
          the goals we jointly agreed to in our original alliance would have
          been attained by Fiserv."
          
          With $300 billion in assets, The Chase Manhattan Corporation is
          the largest banking company in the United States.  It has more
          primary relationships with large U.S. companies than any other
          competitor, making it the leading bank to corporate America. 
          The new Chase is also among only a handful of truly global
          competitors, with wholesale banking operations in 52 countries,
          clients in 180 and leadership rankings in almost all areas of
          global finance, trading, private banking and information and
          transaction services.  Domestically, Chase is a preeminent
          financial products company, with leading positions in credit
          cards, mortgage banking, consumer finance, mutual funds and
          home banking.  It has offices in 39 states and relationships with
          more than 25 million households coast to coast.  For information,
