Certain statements contained herein may constitute "forward-looking 
statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act 
of 1995. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as 
"believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "target," "estimate," "continue," 
"positions," "prospects" or "potential," by future conditional verbs such as 
"will," "would," "should," "could" or "may", or by variations of such words or 
by similar expressions. These "forward-looking statements" are not historical 
facts and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about 
the parties' industry, management beliefs and certain assumptions made by 
management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and 
beyond our control. Accordingly, readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to 
certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict 
including, without limitation, risks associated with the August 1, 2012 
technology issue at Knight that resulted in Knight sending numerous erroneous 
orders in NYSE-listed and NYSE Arca securities into the market and the impact 
to Knight's capital structure and business as well as actions taken in 
response thereto and consequences thereof, risks associated with Knight's 
ability to recover all or a portion of the damages that are attributable to 
the manner in which NASDAQ OMX handled the Facebook IPO, risks associated with
changes in market structure, legislative, regulatory or financial reporting 
rules, risks associated with past or future changes to organizational 
structure and management and the costs, integration, performance and operation 
of businesses previously acquired or developed organically, or that may be 
acquired or developed organically in the future. Readers should carefully 
review the risks and uncertainties disclosed in Knight's reports with the SEC, 
including, without limitation, those detailed under "Certain Factors Affecting 
Results of Operations" and "Risk Factors" in Knight's Annual Report on Form 
10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2011 and in Knight's Quarterly Report on 
Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, and in other reports or 
documents Knight or KCG files with, or furnishes to, the SEC from time to time 
and those detailed in the Joint Proxy Statement / Prospectus under the 
heading "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Information" and 
"Risk Factors", among others. 
In addition to factors previously disclosed in Knight's reports filed with the
SEC and those identified elsewhere in this filing, the following factors among
others, could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking
statements or historical performance: ability to obtain regulatory approvals
and meet other closing conditions to the mergers, including approval by Knight
and GETCO stockholders, on the expected terms and schedule; delay in closing 
the mergers; difficulties and delays in integrating the Knight and GETCO 
businesses or fully realizing cost savings and other benefits; business 
disruption following the mergers; the inability to sustain revenue and 
earnings growth; customer and client actions; and the inability to realize 
cost savings or revenues or to implement integration plans and other 
consequences associated with mergers, acquisitions and divestitures.
