In the press release referenced in Item 2.02 above, Synovus also announced that at the meeting of the Synovus Board of Directors to be held on July 26, 2007 management will ask the Board to consider all Total System Services, Inc. (“TSYS”) spin-related issues and to appoint a special committee of independent directors to make a final recommendation with respect to whether to distribute Synovus’ ownership interest in TSYS to Synovus’ shareholders. Synovus owns 80.8 percent of the outstanding shares of TSYS stock. Although no specific timeframe for committee and Board deliberations will be defined, management hopes to be able to announce the Board’s decision no later than Synovus’ third quarter analyst call.
