March 16, 2012 - Chicago, IL

Mattersight Corporation (NASDAQ: MATR) today announced that it has commenced a tender offer to purchase up to 111,605 shares of its 7% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock ("Series B Preferred Stock") at a purchase price of $8.60 per share, plus accrued and unpaid dividends. The 111,605 shares of Series B Preferred Stock represent 6.68% of the outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock. The tender offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., Chicago time, on Friday, April 13, 2012, unless extended by Mattersight.

Tenders of shares must be made on or prior to the expiration of the tender offer and may be withdrawn at any time on or prior to the expiration of the tender offer, in each case, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, the Letter of Transmittal and other related materials that will be distributed to holders of Series B Preferred Stock on or about March 16, 2012. Stockholders whose shares are purchased in the tender offer will be paid the purchase price in cash, less any applicable withholding taxes and without interest, promptly after the expiration of the tender offer. The tender offer is not conditioned on any minimum number of shares being tendered or on any financing condition or contingency. The tender offer is, however, subject to other conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, the Letter of Transmittal and other related materials.

Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, Inc. is the Information Agent for the tender offer, and any questions concerning the tender offer or requests for copies of the Offer to Purchase, Letter of Transmittal and other related documents should be directed to Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, Inc. by calling 1-877-830-4936 (U.S. toll free) or writing to Attn: Reorganization Dept., 1981 Marcus Avenue, Suite 100, Lake Success, NY 11042. Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, Inc. is also the Depositary for the tender offer.

Neither Mattersight nor its board of directors, nor the Information Agent or the Depositary, is making any recommendation, or has authorized any person to make any recommendation, to any stockholder as to whether such stockholder should tender or refrain from tendering its shares of Series B Preferred Stock in the tender offer. Each stockholder must make his or her own decision as to whether to tender shares and, if so, how many shares to tender. Prior to making any decision with respect to the tender offer, stockholders should consult their own financial and tax advisors, and read and evaluate carefully the information in the Offer to Purchase, the Letter of Transmittal and other related materials.

Mattersight has entered into letter agreements with certain of its significant stockholders, directors and officers pursuant to which the holders of 1,559,091 shares of Series B Preferred Stock, representing 93.32% of the Series B Preferred Stock, have agreed not to participate in the tender offer. As a result, we do not expect that proration of tendered shares will be required.
