PHILIPPINES & NEW YORK -- September 28, 2010

The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) and NYSE Technologies, the commercial
technology division of NYSE Euronext, today jointly announced the successful
migration of the PSE to NYSE Technologies’ NSC V900 trading platform. The new
innovative trading infrastructure will enhance PSE’s product range, trading
performance and volume capacity.

“In today’s increasingly competitive exchange industry, cutting-edge and high
performance technology is a key differentiator for continued volume growth and
product innovation,” said PSE President and Chief Executive Officer Val
Antonio B. Suarez. “The migration of PSE to the NSC V900 trading system
complements our business strategy to further increase liquidity in our capital
markets and introduce new investment products.”

With the launch of NSC V900 on July 26, 2010, the PSE is now able to handle
larger trading volume and process trades 10 times faster than the previous
system.

“The launch of the NSC V900 trading platform is a major milestone project for
PSE,” said Peter Tierney, Managing Director of NYSE Technologies in the Asian
Region. “We were extremely pleased to be selected as the key technology
partner on this project and, after 18 months of hard work on both sides, the
immediate results are very encouraging.”

With NYSE Technologies’ NSC V900 trading platform, which replaces the legacy
MakTrade System, investors trading on PSE markets will have direct access in
the future to a wider range of cash, debt, and derivative instruments from one
single platform that was not available previously. In addition to delivering
exceptionally fast transaction speed and system-wide reliability, the NSC V900
trading platform will provide outstanding value to PSE customers and set new
benchmarks in terms of scalability, capacity, ultra-low latency, new
functionalities and resiliency.
