BCE and CGI Discussions Continuing

    MONTREAL, April 15 /CNW Telbec/ - BCE Inc. (BCE) (TSX; NYSE: BCE) and CGI
Group Inc. (CGI) (TSX: GIB.A; NYSE: GIB) today confirmed that they are
continuing their discussions, as announced on December 18, 2002, to develop a
plan with the following objectives:

    (i)    to enhance the value of CGI by ensuring the continuity of CGI's
           management and CGI's ability to deliver high quality services to its
           customers; and

    (ii)   to realize the maximum value of BCE's investment in CGI.

    The talks are proceeding well and, while no final decisions have been made,
the parties are committed to reaching a final agreement no later than August 1,
    In order to allow time to conclude these discussions, the CGI Majority
Shareholders have agreed that their put rights provided for in the Options
Agreement entered into between them and BCE in 1998 will not be exercisable
until after August 1, 2003 and BCE has agreed that its disposition rights under
the Options Agreement will not be exercisable until after August 1, 2003. In
addition, BCE and the CGI Majority Shareholders have agreed to extend the
termination date of the Majority Shareholders' put rights under the Options
Agreement from January 4, 2004 to August 1, 2004, and to defer the commencement
of BCE's two-year call right period from January 6, 2004 to August 2, 2004.
    The parties have also agreed to defer the final termination date of the
Options Agreement from January 5, 2006 to August 1, 2006. Except for these
deferrals and extensions, the Options Agreement remains unchanged.
    BCE has also reiterated and clarified its prior statements made on December
18, 2002 that:

    (i)    its preferred course of action is no longer to dispose of the control
           block in CGI, following the exercise, as the case may be, of the put
           and call rights in 2003 and 2004;

    (ii)   if BCE were to divest a portion of its investment in CGI, it would be
           done in an orderly manner, including compliance with the 12-month
           prior notice provision of the existing Options Agreement; and

    (iii)  the existing commercial alliance between BCE and CGI will be
           maintained, including the various outsourcing and consulting services
           agreements provided by CGI to the BCE companies.

    In order to facilitate these discussions, BCE and CGI are also announcing
that Mr. Michael Sabia, President and Chief Executive Officer of BCE, will
immediately join the CGI Board of Directors, as one of BCE's three nominees.
BCE's Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Siim A. Vanaselja, has agreed to step down as
a CGI director.
