Dow Jones Newswires and Reuters today announced the renewal and expansion of their global distribution agreement. The three-year deal allows users of Reuters products world-wide to access Dow Jones news and information solutions in addition to Reuters own news services. It also increases the range of Dow Jones services available to customers in Europe and Asia. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Reuters and Dow Jones Newswires have had a global distribution agreement since 1999. The agreement allows users to access both news and information sources within the Reuters product they use to monitor the market, and make trading and investing decisions.

As part of the renewed agreement, eight local-language services produced by Dow Jones Newswires will be available as an optional service to Reuters users in Europe and Asia. These include real-time, local- and regional-market and company news services in Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese. The European package includes Dow Jones-VWD News, the German-language domestic and regional news service Dow Jones acquired from vwd GmbH in March.

The agreement also renews the inclusion of Dow Jones Capital Markets Report, a leading source of news and information for global fixed-income markets, in Reuters North American Capital Markets Service. This service offers the strength of Reuters Treasury News service and Dow Jones Capital Markets Report in a compelling, flexible data and information solution for capital markets professionals.

"This agreement builds on the relationship we have had with Reuters on a global level since 1999," said Paul Ingrassia, President, Dow Jones Newswires. "We are delighted to be able to offer a wider range of our real-time news services to Reuters users and believe they will provide a valuable resource to financial professionals around the world."
