New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. Key Developments

CME Group in Response to CFTC Complaint Filed Against New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc

CME Group released the statement in response to the CFTC's complaint filed against New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. Each of CME Group's exchanges, including the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), places an extremely high priority on preserving the confidentiality of customer information, and expect its employees to abide by this guiding principal without exception. For this reason, when they discover that any CME Group employee has acted contrary to this principle they take decisive action to reinforce its values and protect against the disclosure of confidential information. Its policies and procedures designed to protect against the disclosure of confidential information are sound, and they continue to emphasize the importance of its values with its employees every day. The CFTC court action announced is disappointing because it relates to incidents that CME Group has already addressed and handled appropriately, and involved no harm to any customer or the markets. Nevertheless, the CFTC is now seeking to hold NYMEX liable for the actions of these former employees, which were contrary to exchange policy and, when discovered, resulted in the immediate termination by their employment. NYMEX is not being charged with any misconduct, is not being charged with a failure to properly supervise its employees, and is not being charged with a failure to adhere to the DCM core principles. Rather, the CFTC is seeking to impose a monetary penalty against NYMEX based solely on these former employees' improper activities, even though no customer suffered any loss and no third party obtained any improper gain.
