On May 12, 2005, Brightpoint Inc.'s (the "Company") Chief Financial Officer,
Frank Terence, entered into a Sales Plan with a brokerage firm under Securities
Exchange Act Rule 10b5-1. Such plans allow a corporate insider to gradually
diversify holdings of his company's common stock while minimizing any market
effects of such trades by spreading them out over an extended period of time and
eliminating any market concern that such trades were made by a person while in
possession of material nonpublic information. Consistent with Rule 10b5-1, the
Company's guidelines permit personnel to implement 10b5-1 trading plans provided
that, among other things, they are not in possession of any material nonpublic
information at the time that they adopt such plans.

Pursuant to the 10b5-1 plan entered into by Mr. Terence, up to 128,570 shares of
the Company's common stock may be traded upon exercise of his vested stock
options contributed to his 10b5-1 plan. All sales under the 10b5-1 plan are
subject to the terms and conditions thereof, including predetermined minimum
price conditions, and a maximum number of shares that can be sold per month. The
10b5-1 plan has a term of two years.

In addition, on May 5, 2005, J. Mark Howell, the Company's President, and Steven
E. Fivel, the Company's Executive Vice President and General Counsel, each
terminated his previously announced 10b5-1 Sales Plan. These Sales Plans, which
were both entered into on March 3, 2005, were previously described in the
Company's Form 8-K filed on March 4, 2005.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
