simple cross-connect with SFTI

NEW YORK -- November 06, 2012

NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology division of NYSE Euronext, today
announced the expansion of its Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure
(SFTI)^1 in Asia allowing colocation customers at the Singapore Exchange (SGX)
to trade in multiple Asian markets through one single point of access. NYSE
Technologies first connected its SFTI network to SGX in May this year allowing
SFTI customers around the globe to access SGX’s securities and derivatives
markets. NYSE Technologies has since enhanced its connectivity to SGX by
extending SFTI into SGX’s colocation facility itself, allowing firms colocated
with SGX to connect to the wide range of venues and services available on
SFTI. Now, through SFTI in Asia, customers in SGX colo can trade on NYSE
Liffe, the European-based derivatives exchange of NYSE Euronext and also in
multiple Asian markets, all through the same infrastructure.

SFTI Asia is a shared infrastructure that allows all SFTI customers and
co-located firms in SGX to trade across Asian markets without having to
support multiple network connections to each trading venue. Customers at SGX
can access all major Japanese capital markets including Tokyo Stock Exchange
and Osaka Securities Exchange. Colocation customers can also access NYSE
European markets, subject to membership and regulatory requirements, over a
single connection through the SFTI network access point within the SGX
colocation hall. In addition to trading connectivity, co-located customers can
request direct access to NYSE Euronext market data services, clearing venues,
and other value-add services such as SuperFeed^2, NYSE Technologies normalized
market data feed.

“Through our partnership with SGX, co-located customers can work with one
single connectivity provider without making costly investments in
infrastructure, staffing, and mitigating risk to trade in other Asian
markets,” Daniel Burgin, Head of Asia Pacific, NYSE Technologies. “The breadth
and depth of our SFTI network is a true differentiator for us in that region,
giving clients the flexibility to not only expand to new markets but to
leverage additional value-add services once on the network.”

NYSE Technologies plans to expand its SFTI connection to Hong Kong in the
first quarter of 2013 and to other trading venues like Australia and Korea
over the next few years based on customer demand. Designed to be the
industry’s most secure and resilient network, SFTI is specifically built for
electronic trading and market data traffic thus enabling firms to reduce their
time-to-market, improve their performance and significantly lower the cost of
their trading infrastructure.
