Litigation Update



On 22 March 2012 the Company announced  that it had submitted a motion to  the 
New York  Court to  confirm  the arbitral  award made  by  a tribunal  of  the 
American Arbitration Association  in connection  with claims by  BGC that  the 
Company's information  sales subsidiary  misused certain  market data  it  was 
being supplied under  a redistribution agreement.  The arbitrator's award  is 
that the Company should pay BGC $0.8m plus interest at the statutory rate from
1 January 2010. BGC's  application for reasonable  attorney's fees and  costs 
was denied. In response to the  Company's motion, BGC cross moved seeking  to 
vacate the arbitrator's award.



The Company announces today that the New York Court has granted the  Company's 
motion to confirm the award and that BGC's motion to vacate the award has been
denied.
