EMPLOYEE STOCK PURCHASE PLAN
TO OUR EMPLOYEES:
We are pleased with this opportunity to provide you with information regarding our Employee Stock Purchase
Plan, referred to in these materials as the "Purchase Plan." We believe the Purchase Plan is an important part of
the benefits provided to our employees, and we hope you will take the time to review this information carefully.
Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (the "Company") adopted the Purchase Plan in order to provide you with an
opportunity to share in the Company's growth by purchasing the common stock of the Company ("Common
Stock") without payment of brokerage costs, at a discounted price, and under terms that are favorable from a tax
standpoint. The Company believes the Purchase Plan assists it in hiring qualified employees and in building a
satisfying long-term relationship with existing employees through recognition of their contribution to the Company.
We have divided this discussion of the Purchase Plan into two parts. The first part of this document describes the
terms of the Purchase Plan. The second part of this document describes the U.S. federal tax consequences
relating to your participation in the Purchase Plan.
The following information may not answer all the questions you have about the Purchase Plan and is not intended
to go into every detail of the Purchase Plan. A copy of the Purchase Plan is attached to this prospectus. Further
questions about your rights under the Purchase Plan may be directed to the Company's Equity Services Group,
Abarca Equity, Inc. at (650) 577-3165. Questions relating to the tax consequences of your participation in the
Purchase Plan should be referred to your personal tax advisor.
