         On December 5, 2005, Brightpoint, Inc. announced that its Board of
Directors has approved a three-for-two split of its outstanding common stock.

         The split is payable on December 30, 2005 to holders of record on
December 16, 2005. The stock split will be accomplished through a 50% stock
dividend, providing shareholders with one additional share of common stock for
every two shares they hold. A shareholder who would otherwise be entitled to
receive a fractional share of common stock will receive, in lieu thereof, cash
in a proportional amount equal to the closing price of the common stock on the
NASDAQ National Market System on the record date. After the stock split,
Brightpoint, Inc.'s issued and outstanding common stock will increase from
approximately 27 million shares to approximately 41 million shares.

         The Company issued a press release regarding the three-for-two stock
split, which is annexed hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by


         (c) Exhibits.
