NEW YORK -- April 17, 2013

NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology division of NYSE Euronext, today
announced the launch of NYSE BQT (Best Quote & Trades), a consolidated XDP
feed that provides a real-time, unified view of Level 1 market data, including
Best Bid/Offer and Last Sale information for the NYSE, NYSE Arca, and NYSE MKT
exchanges including NASDAQ issues traded on NYSE Arca and NYSE MKT. NYSE BQT
is a more flexible and affordable alternative to the range of expensive Level
1 market data offerings currently available.

The raw data feed, which is delivered via the NYSE Technologies Secure
Financial Transaction Infrastructure® (SFTI) network ensures direct access to
key quote and trade data for NYSE Euronext’s U.S. markets. The feed can be
distributed to a diverse number of investor applications such as retail
blotter interfaces, charting and research tools, symbol watch lists, and
portfolio management software. NYSE BQT is designed to help customers reduce
their market data overhead without compromising the quality, reliability, and
delivery of the data they offer to their end users.

“We’re pleased to bring this new, highly efficient product to the industry,
providing market data managers, financial advisors and investment managers
access to the most important market information at a much lower cost,” said
Todd Watkins, Vice President, Global Market Data, NYSE Technologies. “With the
launch of NYSE BQT, NYSE Technologies continues its commitment to helping
customers effectively manage cost while preserving access to some of the
highest quality data available.”

Key Features of NYSE BQT:

  *Real-time best bid and offer quotations, for all NYSE, NYSE Arca and NYSE
    MKT-traded securities, including size, available from all of NYSE markets.
  *NYSE Prices: The official NYSE opening and closing prices for all listed
    instruments, including quote and trading status messages, as well as
    Retail Interest Indication.
  *Value-Added Details: The stock summary message (including Open, High, Low

    The message will be sent out every minute regardless of whether there is a
    change to a particular value or not. In the event there is no volume on
    the stock, the trade summary message will not be disseminated.

The NYSE BQT feed is a part of the NYSE Technologies data feed portfolio which
includes a diverse array of market data feeds such as: Filtered Options Feed,
