Pursuant to Section 21D(a)(3)(A)(i) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (&uot;Exchange Act&uot;), Notice is hereby given that on February 1, 2000, a class action lawsuit alleging violations of the federal securities laws was filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Sykes Enterprises, Inc. The action is brought on behalf of a class of persons who purchased the common stock of Sykes Enterprises, Inc.

The Complaint alleges that Sykes has failed to comply with GAAP with respect to 1999 financial reporting.
