NEW YORK & AMSTERDAM & BRUSSELS & LISBON & LONDON & PARIS -- December 19, 2012

NYSE Euronext (NYX), for the second consecutive year, raised more proceeds
from Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) than any other global exchange group in
2012 with $36 billion in total global proceeds raised from 117 IPOs and listed
the majority of U.S. technology IPOs. In the U.S., the New York Stock Exchange
(NYSE) and NYSE MKT combined led the market with 79 IPOs and 16 transfers. In
Europe, NYSE Euronext welcomed 25 new listings, with approximately €2.7
billion ($3.5 billion) in proceeds raised.

"Issuers successfully raised more IPO capital on NYSE Euronext markets than
any other exchange in 2012, despite the lingering uncertainty that weighed on
the global economy,” said Scott Cutler, EVP, Head of Global Listings at NYSE
Euronext. “We’re especially proud to be the U.S. leader in new technology
listings and market transfers. This success spans from our superior market
quality and innovative technology platform, the strength of our global brand
and world-class issuer community, and our commitment to providing best in
class services and unprecedented value to our customers.”

“Looking to 2013, the IPO pipeline is very strong with nearly $17 billion in
deals pending,” Cutler added. “We look to continue our success in attracting
quality issuers to our markets, delivering unsurpassed value to these
companies and their shareholders, and contributing to economic growth and
well-being throughout the world.”

New Home for a New Generation of Tech Innovators

In 2012, 52% of U.S. technology IPOs listed on NYSE, making NYSE Euronext the
leader in technology IPOs in the U.S. and new home for a new generation of
tech innovators. Among the technology-based listings on NYSE in 2012 were:
Exact Target Inc. (NYSE: ET), Millennial Media Inc. (NYSE: MM), Palo Alto
Networks (NYSE: PANW), Service Now Inc (NYSE: NOW), Workday (NYSE: WDAY) and
Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP).

In addition to capturing high growth sectors, NYSE Euronext continued to
attract listings from leading U.S. consumer brand names in 2012, including
Annie’s Inc. (NYSE: BNNY), Burger King Corporation (NYSE: BKW), Restoration
Hardware Holdings Inc. (NYSE: RH) and Tumi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: TUMI).

The company also continued to attract leading global companies from all over
the world to its U.S. platform. Manchester United (NYSE: MANU) from the U.K.,
Santander Mexico (NYSE: BSMX) the second largest U.S. IPO in 2012, and Vipshop
Holdings Limited (NYSE: VIPS) from China, were some of the leading
international companies that listed on NYSE this year.

Leader in U.S. Transfers

Companies continue to transfer to NYSE Euronext because they value the global
listings venue, branding, visibility and tailored customer services the
company offers. In 2012, 16 companies moved or announced transfer to NYSE
Group (15 to NYSE, 1 to NYSE MKT) with six departures from the NYSE and three
from NYSE MKT. Of the 15 companies that moved or announced transfer to the
NYSE in 2012, three were among the top 100 largest companies by market
capitalization listed on Nasdaq – Infosys Ltd. (NYSE: INFY), TD Ameritrade
Holding Corporation (NYSE: AMTD) and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
(NYSE: TEVA). Both Teva and Infosys were previously in the Nasdaq-100 Index.

Continued to Welcome Top European Listings and Support Small and Medium
Enterprises

In 2012, NYSE Euronext welcomed 25 listings in Europe from a variety of
sectors including healthcare, consumer goods, technology and
telecommunications, raising total IPO proceeds of €2.7 billion ($3.5 billion)
and representing an aggregate market capitalization of €22.8 billion ($30
billion). Key listings on NYSE Euronext’s European platforms included: Ziggo
(Euronext: ZIGGO), the Dutch cable operator launched NYSE Euronext’s largest
European IPO in 2012 on NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam, D.E. Masterblenders 1753
(Euronext: DE), the spin-off from ex-Sara Lee Corp, also listed on NYSE

BTGP), Brazil’s largest investment bank listed on NYSE Alternext in Amsterdam.

NYSE Euronext’s European market continues to welcome listings from Small and
Medium Enterprises (SMEs), companies with less than €1 billion ($1.3 billion)
in market capitalization. In 2012, 18 of the 25 new listings were from SMEs,
which raised a total of €254 million ($334 million) at IPO. These transactions
highlight the significant role of NYSE Euronext in the financing of SMEs in
Europe, providing access to capital to help them grow and develop their
businesses. In addition, NYSE Euronext announced on December 5^th its plans to
launch a pan-European exchange for small and medium‐sized companies, developed
in consultation with all of its European markets.

Advocacy Milestones

NYSE Euronext continues to advocate for and provide its clients around the
world with an active voice on key policy, governance and regulatory matters.
In the U.S., the company was deeply involved in the development and passage of
the JOBS Act, which is aimed at helping emerging growth companies access the
public markets more efficiently, and also launched the NYSE Big StartUp, a
small business and job creation initiative. In Europe, in addition to its
