C. Kim Goodwin Resigns from the CheckFree Board of Directors

Move prompted by Goodwin's appointment to senior position at Credit Suisse in London

ATLANTA, Oct. 18 (www.AllPayNews.com) -- CheckFree Corporation (Nasdaq: CKFR), a provider of financial electronic commerce services and products, today announced that C. Kim Goodwin has resigned from the CheckFree Board of Directors. Goodwin's resignation, effective today, follows her appointment to a senior position at Credit Suisse in London.

"We thank Kim for her service on CheckFree's Board," said Pete Kight, CheckFree chairman and chief executive officer. "We have valued her deep industry knowledge and management expertise as we continue to advance financial electronic commerce solutions for our global customer base."

Goodwin joined CheckFree's Board in February 2006. In her new role at Credit Suisse, she will be the Head of Equities for Asset Management, responsible for the management of all Credit Suisse equity products in the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, as well as all multi-country equity products.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience on the CheckFree Board, and I am leaving only because my new position in Europe precludes me from continuing to fully serve the interests of the company's shareholders," Goodwin said. "I have confidence in CheckFree's leadership and long-term strategy, and I wish them well in the future."
